Fruit Samosa

Standard

Here comes a yummilicious, healthy and quick snack perfect for my #afterschoolsnack collection. Just like that thought why we don’t stuff something with fruit in samosa, as my whole family likes custard to the core, induced fruits to the custard and later stuffed it to the samosa.

I was little scary for the outcome, because my kids would kick me off if I play with the custard as they love to have it as such. But the outcome was fantastic, wonderful, beautiful, yummilicious and … Give a try, a very simple and easy snack when you have samosa patty ready and the custard ready at your refrigerator.

As I have started uploading my YOUTUBE videos in that excitement, I got to focus more on video and totally forget about clicking step by step pictures. But don’t worry I would say that my video would more helpful for everyone. Let me share the recipe…

Tender Coconut Custard

Standard

This is my next share about my adventure with food, so called foodventure –Dessert with Twist. I hate summers, but like the nature produce at summer. As a foodie, I like to explore and give a try to all the fruits and veggies, gifted by nature and at times I too develop a healthy coolant recipe with no artificial flavoring or artificial essence. I like to have tender coconut, on summers right from my childhood. But whenever I have tender coconut, I would demand for the tender coconut meat, when I found it glassy and thin I would like to have it. Incase if it’s hard and thick, I would never have it.

This things happens right from my childhood, but now after developing few culinary skills, I thought why we don’t try something with this tender coconut meat. This time when I had tender coconut, I got the tender coconut meat home, and was wondering what to prepare with this. Just like that went and checked my refrigerator and found summer special fruits lying there. It was apple, plum and banana and whenever I have apple and banana at home, I go for fruit custard which I love to the core and would say my anytime favorite dessert.

And now hope you all would have caught what my mind says, yes my mind wants me to try Custard with the Tender coconut meat. I very well knew that once the tender coconut meat gets grinded with milk or tender coconut water, it would retain a thick and fluffy texture. And so now I am into action, as told in the previous post – Let me share my adventure with food with #Foodventures, conducted by Axis Bank Dining Delights where the best foodventure will get a chance to dine with Michelin Star Chef – Vikas Khanna and Food Connoisseur Vir. Sanghvi.
