This is my first time to participate in Jugalbandi's Click event.When they announced the theme as 'WOOD',I got very excited and the first thing that came in my mind was 'Coconut shell'..so I made a trip to our backyard and found some coconut shells..Then I tried to make its outer surface smooth by myself ..and got fed up with it very soon.So finally gave it to a carpenter and got it neatly trimed and varnished..
I made coconut pannacotta,an Italian dessert and moulded them in coconut shells ..When I was taking those pictures it was like around 6 .30pm and the lighting was dim.I was'nt quite satisfied with the pictures.
My sis and my cousins were impatiently waiting to finish up the dessert..So immediately after shooting,the shells went empty :(
So the next day ,I took some pictures with this spice box.I bought this spice box in Munnar last year...
I took more than 100 pictures and couldn't able choose the best one.After so much of confusion ,I could pick up these 4 pictures as my fav..I would like to know which is the best among these 4 pics..So plz help me buddies!
I took the recipe for coconut pannacotta from taste.com ..and i tweaked it a bit..
You will need :
250 ml of fresh cream
250 ml of first-press coconut milk
1 cup of Sugar
2 tbspoon gelatine powder
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup grated coconut,toasted
1.In a saucepan,add coconut milk,cream and sugar..Keep stirring until the sugar dissolves in a medium heat.u
3.Add the gelatine to the hot water and whisk using a fork to dissolve completely.
4.Pour this gelatine to the coconut/cream mixture.Whisk to combine well.
5.Pour this mixture into 6 coconut shells/ramekins.Refrigirate for about 3 hours ,or until set.
6.Sprinkle the toasted coconut over the pannacotta and serve.
Other serving suggestion: You can also turn the pannacotta on a serving plate and serve it some seasonal fruits.
I tried the following three recipes this week:
I didn't have soy milk so I went ahead with cow's milk for making this Cocoa-banana shake.And also i replaced silken tofu with fresh cream.I loved this drink so much.Esp my sis who became a very a big fan of this shake.The combo of banana and cocoa is awesome!Thanks a lot ,Varsha.
Though there are many recipes I wanted try from Priya's blog,this one really triggered me.I added some paneer cubes and skipped cheddar chesse for the filling.It was so tasty and we all loved it...Thank you,Priya :)
I never knew Archy has this yummy soya recipe at her blog until y'day.A very good friend of mine mailed me her recipe and told me that he tried it and it was simply superb.And he insisted me to try this.So I made it today and loved it so much.I also used this curry as stuffing to make a Calzone.This delicious curry has the perfect blend of tangy and spicy taste.I liked it so much...Thanks a lot ,Archy :)
Have a great Sunday!
