How to remove Custard Apple pulp for Milkshake

Custard Apple milkshake

I love custard apples, but sometimes many custard apples will ripe together at the same time and it is difficult to consume. What do i do in this case?? Make Milkshake!! Or Rabadi πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

How?? Just scoop out the pulp and seeds with a spoon and put in a big metal strainer or chhalnee. Put in a big vessel. Take a metal whisk and whisk strongly, you will see seeds coming out of the pulp. Remove the seeds with a spoon and you have got your yummy pulp.

Look at the pulp and seeds separating

Just add some milk and blend. Milkshake is ready. I also prefer to strain it before serving. Healthy and no-added sugar milkshake is ready. Enjoy!!

SheerKhurma |Sevaiyya / Vermicelli Pudding |Fast and Easy dessert| Milk based dessert|Kheer

Look at the beautiful silver leaf, rose petals and pistachios

Served in a beautiful bowl

Vermicelli kheer or as we call it Sevaiyya or Sheerkhurma is a very simple and fast to make dessert.

I use the thin and already roasted vermicelli but the thick and non-roasted one will also work. I prefer the thin one.

No pudding recipe can be easier or simple to make than this beautiful recipe of Vermicelli.

SheerKhurma means Sheer ie Milk and Khurma means dates so a pudding made of Milk and dates is actually technically SheerKhurma, we add vermicelli and dryfruits to make it richer. The more we cook the milk with the vermicelli, the thicker the pudding will be as vermicelli will release starch. A very basic recipe will have just 4 ingredients ie Milk, Vermicelli, Sugar and dryfruits, So even if you have just these 4 ingredients, try making this dessert and you will love it. There can be many add ons, watch for the extras/optional items in the ingredient list.

What I love about this lasagna is making homemade noodles.  It is much easier than it seems and you don’t even need a pasta machine.

This recipe is for a general pasta noodle, so it can be used to make ravioli as well.

Super easy and very filling dish that is very very versatile. Add or subtract veggies or meat according to your choice or availability and it will taste awesome always.

Paneer Butter Masala |Cottage cheese in gravy

Paneer or Cottage cheese is a good source of proteins, calcium, vitamin A and Vitamin B. It is super healthy and nutritious.

Best part is Paneer can be made at home from scratch –

The process starts with curdling milk. This is done by adding an acidic substance like lime juice or vinegar to warm milk.

When the acidity of the milk increases, curds of casein protein separate from the whey, the liquid part of the milk. Add more water to lessen the vinegary taste.

Now, filter this curdled milk with a muslin cloth/cheese cloth and try to remove all the water/moisture. Take the cloth with the cheese inside and press it with both hands, some more water will be released. Keep the tied cheese below a heavy pan or a heavy kitchen object and leave for some time. After sometime the cheese can be cut into pieces and used.

PBM

Dinner parties are incomplete without a sumptuous Paneer Dish and here is my favorite. Easy but simply Delicious.
