Minced Meat Samosa

Standard

Samosa is one of my favorite snack, usually during childhood days, when we go for movie I never miss to have samosa J I had few leftover Minced meat curry from my lunch, opened the refrigerator and got to see samosa patties and few pieces of boiled potatoes. Thought of combining these together for the samosa stuff with a tsp of Eastern Beef Ullarthu Masala for a punch to the samosa.

Samosa was too good, and perfect for a rainy tea time snack. It’s a must to try out for this Ramadan. Let me share the recipe…

Basbousa

Standard

Basbousa is an Egyptian and traditional Middle East sweet cake prepared with Semolina, desiccated coconut, sugar, yogurt/curd and later soaked in sugar syrup which is flavored with rose water. It is also known as “Hareesa”. As of collecting few Middle East dishes for Ramzan, resulted in Basbousa through one of my neighbor.

Basbousa is a very easy, simple and a delicious dessert which flavors not only the kitchen but also the whole house with its wonderful aroma. Usually this Basbousa is baked until the top turns brown in color, but I have done it until it reaches golden brown. Let me share the recipe…
