Mango mousse


Aroma of mango makes anyone salivating, recipes with mangoes are endless, but one of my favourite is this creamy , velvety mango mousse. I use fruits which are in season, don’t prefer the canned one’s.

If you having guests over, try this recipe for dessert, they’ll definitely gonna love this.

Making them is quite simple and quick. Only thing to remember is whichever mango you are using, they have to be sweet, even a little bit of sourness will ruin the mousse. Do keep this in mind before you start your prep.

Mango mousse

What is Mousse?

Mousse is basically smooth textured dessert made with whipped cream and egg whites but this is a vegetarian blog so I have not used any egg.

Parwal ki mithai


Desi Se Accha,

Kuch Nahi

Traveling makes one wiser and stronger, who doesn’t love taking trips to beautiful destination. Today I am taking you to Uttar Pradesh state through this post and showcasing how a simple vegetable can be transformed into an awesome dessert or mithai.

Parwal ki mithai

Parwal or point gourd as the name suggests is full of nutrition. This veggie can be consumed both savoury and sweet,a very common vegetable in every Indian household.

To be very frank I am not a Parwal fan at all just don’t like the seeds in it, now you might think who eats seeds but let me tell you in my house my in-laws are crazy for this so I don’t scope out the pulp or the seed while making sabzi. But here in this case one has to scope out the pulp and stuff khoya which I am loving 😄

A very simple and easy recipe to make on any festival. Make them prior to the festive day and serve it chilled, taste awesome. Trust me on this and do give it a try.

These yummy mithai are a common scene in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. If ever you have visited to kachori gali of Kashi Vishwanath temple one will notice these sweet in every sweet shop, simple and delicious recipe.

Lauki Barfi/Bottlegourd sweet


Food Is The Ingredient

That Binds Us Together

Lauki barfi is a complete Desi mithai which one could find in every sweet shop in Purvanchal.

Lauki is grown in abundance in this region, so this sweet was common among rich and poor. Though it’s vanishing now, as many don’t prefer eating them anymore. I can remember my childhood day’s when we use to go for marriages and this mithai was served, where as a kiddo I did not like this mithai after knowing that it was made with lauki 😀

“The older you are the wiser ” and now I realize it value. My son loves this mithai and my daughter is still shying away from this barfi.

In good old days this mithai was made with sugar syrup only, which made them really very hard. The reason for this was to make them last for months, as this was send with daughters as their goodies after marriage and in those days returning to mother’s place after marriage was not imagined coz no way of transportation was there during those times.

But as time has passed on this recipe has changed a bit by using mawa. Which does enhance the taste a lot, but the shelf life is restricted. I am so happy to be writing about this yummy mithai and saving the recipe for next generation to come.

So let’s get the recipe

Mango lassi

In my recipes I mostly try to avoid using food colour, as we already intake all these preservatives from the packed food.

Lassi is a traditional drink in India ,flavored with fruits, mint or be it salty. Lassi is an yoghurt based drink. Mango lassi is just like having milkshake.

Drinking Lassi has it’s own benefits. If one is suffering from acidity then this is the best drink for them. Lassi is good for digestion and skin.

Lassi is made with curd, add water to the curd and whisk is, dilute it and Lassi is ready. Add your flavor like if you want it salty or sweet.
