Ras Madhur (Quick 'n Easy Kalakand)
Add to favourites

  • Mithai
  • With Video:  No
  • Difficulty: 

If you're fond of Kalakand, you'll love my mom's take on this traditional dessert that's easy to make, tastes delicious and is healthy too because it's made from cottage cheese. Called Ras Madhur - a moniker given by a group of my friends who polished off an entire batch one day - this modern mithai is ready in 15 minutes flat! While I prefer to use homemade cottage cheese prepared from full cream milk - primarily because it's not salty - you can use the store-bought version too, although I would suggest you hunt for an unsalted variety.

What is Double Boiler
Add to favourites

Double Boiler is a technique of delicate, indirect heating used to melt chocolates, slow scramble eggs, keep food warm or incorporate more air into eggs quickly when making sauces like Sabayon and Hollandaise. It also cooks foods that would otherwise undergo a quick change in texture when placed over direct heat. Here are 3 recipes that use this technique:

3-minute Hollandaise Sauce
Tiramisu
Incredibly Creamy Scrambled Eggs

Pesto Sauce
With Video
Add to favourites

This is a basic sauce for pastas, sandwiches and dips that you can tweak depending on the use you put it to. If it's going to be a dip or a spread, increase the amount of Parmesan cheese to half a cup and oil by a few extra tablespoons. As a pasta sauce, increase the amount of garlic and olive oil in it. You'd be surprised what a big difference these small additions can make to the flavour.
