Chocoholic's Dream

Recipe: Chocolate Candy Bar

When I was a little girl, I used to dream v interesting dreams such as eating a never-ending bar of chocolate :). It would be the soft and creamy kind of chocolate which isn't too sweet and just melts in your mouth. There would also be a fountains flowing with melted chocolate in my dream.

The chocolate candy bars that are usually available here are a little too sweet for my likes. So sweet that I can just eat one. And the only decent bar of dark chocolate around is not creamy. Though that doesn't stop me from eating my weekly quota.

And so I started thinking of all the components that would make the perfect Chocolate bar - which is not too sweet but yet creamy and goey and maybe a crunch in between as well :). And hence was born this perfectly amazing treat.

I made one big chocolate bar in a circular cake tin of 8 inches diameter and then cut it into bite-sized squares. This turned out to be a little difficult and gooey as a some of the chocolate oozes out while cutting. For a neater look, I would prefer using small moulds next time.

Festive Lights and Festive Bites

Recipe: Ras Malai

The last couple of days, the entire city of Bangalore has been in a festive mood with brightly lit-up clay lamps (diyas) adorning the threshold of houses, happy children bursting fire-crackers, people sharing their Diwali sweets with friends and so on. The evenings saw the city skyline brightened with fire-works from almost every neighbourhood.

Though I don't celebrate Diwali, the festive spirit rubbed off on me pretty soon and I was on the hunt for recipes of Indian sweets. For some reason, I've never attempted to make Indian sweets till now (may be because there are so many sweet shops nearby).
