Fruity Colada

Posted in

This is a sweet and tangy mocktail made with young coconut water, Pineapple, and  Cucumber. It's super refreshing and best part for me is munching on young coconut flesh at the end..humm yum yum. This is a lighter version of regular piña colada which has coconut cream or milk, rum, and pineapple. Great summer drink and perfect pair for BBQ.

Masala Soda

Posted in

In India, two things you will find in every corner of the country. 1. Street Food, and 2. Masala Soda. Masala soda is basically soda with some spices. There are many versions of masala soda but the most common one is with lemon, ginger, cumin powder, mint, and rock salt. Here I have made the same but with a twist in it. It's Adults only masala soda with splash of vodka with hint of thai chili. It's a great fusion cocktail. Make sure to remove all the seeds from the thai chili. One can use sparkling water instead of club soda as well.

Healthy Bites: Oats and Chia Seeds Crackers

A big hello to all the readers of B’khush Women. Thanks for stopping by at my column where we cook together some delicious and healthy treat each month. Today we are making some Oats & Chia Seeds crackers. I have been trying to incorporate some oats delicacies in my cuisine these days and have made some yummy oats idlis, dosa, porridge etc. Oats help in lowering cholesterol and have tremendous health benefits for people with heart disease and diabetes. But eating that same old oats and milk every day can get boring.

Magnificent Mangalore - Moong Dal Payasam

Posted in

We make Moong Dal Payasam or Payasa as we call it in Mangalore on auspicious occasions such as New Year (Ugadi), Dassera or birthdays. I don’t remember my mom making the Moong Dal Payasa as often as she would make Sev Kheer and I don’t think I particularly cared about it as a kid. Things changed after I got married and I started making Moong Dal Payasam more often and acquired a taste for it so much so that it has become our official kheer or payasa for festivals.
