Christmas and New Year 2012 Celebrations

Best Seasons greetings to you all…. Wishing each one of you the BEST in 2012!!!!


We baked 2 types of cakes (Dates Cake and Chocolate Cake) on the occasion of Christmas for family and friends. See the above pic.

I also tried my hands at Zebra Cake for the New Years celebration. The recipe and the pic will follow soon….

And last but not the least I made this awesome Corn Radbi on the eve of New Year. This recipe was given to me by my colleague and friend Jaykumari (affectionately called as Jayku). It’s a very quick and easy dessert and tastes yummyyy when served chilled….. She got the third place for this at the Cooking Competition that took place at our office. Here is the recipe…


1 big sweet corn,

500 ml skimmed milk,

½ cup sugar,

2 tsp ghee,

A pinch of cardamom powder,

2 pinches of saffron,

Broken pieces of cashew nuts


Grate the corn on a grater and collect the pulp.

Heat ghee in a deep bottomed pan and fry cashew nuts till golden brown.

Add corn pulp to it and keep stirring. Fry the corn pulp till the raw smell goes off. This will take approximately 6 to 7 minutes.

Mix in the sugar and add hot milk, cardamom powder and saffron.

Let the rabid cook well. It will thicken as it cooks. Once it is done switch off the gas and allow it to cool to room temperature. Keep it in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours and serve chilled.
