Christmas cake

Christmas is just around the corner and what else could be the best way to celebrate than having Christmas cake! This weekend my house turned into a bake house as I baked the Christmas cake using tutti frutti. I doubled the joy of baking cake by sharing it with my friends and they just loved it. You can do the same, how? Let’s see the recipe below.

Ingredients:

  • Eggs 2
  • Refined flour 1 cup
  • Melted butter 1/2 cup
  • Oil 1/2 cup
  • Powdered sugar 1 cup
  • Baking soda 1 tea spoon
  • Baking powder 1 tea spoon
  • Tutti Frutti  4 table spoon
  • Vanilla essence 1 tea spoon
  • Butter paper

Method:

First sieve the flour with baking soda and baking powder and keep aside.

In a bowl, whisk the butter and sugar.

Add oil now whisk the batter.

Add the eggs to it and whisk.

Add the flour to the batter and fold the flour gently.

Add vanilla and tutti frutti to the batter and mix everything well.

Preheat the oven on 120 degrees.

Pour the cake batter in the cake tray (ensure you lay the butter paper before pouring the batter)

Bake the cake on 120 degree for 20 mins.

Baking time depends on the kind of oven you are using.

Keep checking the cake in between.

Once the cake is baked take it out from the oven and let it cool down on room temperature.

Serve the cake with evening tea or have it just like that 🙂

Thai curry

I have never visited Thailand but I love Thai food. One reason behind my love for Thai food is that it is closely associated with Indian food. The dishes are sweet, sour and spicy.

Thai curry is the queen of all Thai dishes for me and I wanted to try making it in my kitchen. For me Thai curry and steamed rice is comfort food.

Let’s see the recipe below:

Ingredients:

  • Red Thai curry paste 2 table spoon (Easily available in the Godrej natures basket or any other super stores, or you can order online as well).
  • Coconut milk 1 1/2 cup
  • Oil 1 table spoon
  • Mixed vegetables 1 bowl (broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini, red and yellow bell pepper)
  • Thai curry kit (It includes, Thai ginger, lemon grass, kafir leaves)
  • Salt to taste

Method:

First, heat the oil in the pan and fry the thai curry paste.

Add thin portion of coconut milk and let it boil.

Grind the Thai ginger, lemon grass and kafir leaves in the grinder and add all this mixture in the boiling curry.

Parboil all the vegetables and add them in the curry.

Add salt.

In the end add little thick portion of coconut milk and let the curry boil for 5 minutes.

Serve the Thai curry with steamed rice.
