Yemeni Coffee

Yemeni coffee is a famous beverage mostly served in all houses and is usually prepared with coffee husks.It is more like tea as the coffee husks are boiled in water along with other spices and later on strained and served.I have used regular coffee granules as I didn't had coffee husks but the spices and ginger made this coffee very aromatic and flavorful.

Rabri | Sweet Rabdi

Sweet Rabri is a sweet, condensed milk based dish made by boiling the milk on low heat for a long time until it becomes dense and changes its color to pale . Sugar and nuts are added to it to give it flavor. It is chilled and served as dessert. Rabri is the main ingredient in several desserts such as ras malai ,Chenna kheeri etc.

I made rabri from a cookbook and served it as a topping for shahi tukda. It is a wonderful dessert and can be served to guests and as a chilled dessert in parties as well.

Jazar Halwa

We are in the last week of BM#48 and my theme for the week is Arabian Cuisine.For the first day I made Omani Jazar Halwa or carrot halwa . There is nothing special or new in this halwa except the addition of sweetened condensed milk. This is the first time I used condensed milk in carrot halwa and I must say it gave a rich texture to the halwa.

Carrot Chips

For the third day of cooking with food stubs ,I made carrot chips. I was a little skeptical to try these chips , wondering about the taste.So I tried with one carrot only. But they tasted nice and crispy.Next time I am gonna try with more carrots as my daughter loved these crispy munchies.However the first time my carrots got burned so I kept watching them in my second attempt. So let's start the recipe.yum
