After a long time, iam posting a recipe on my blog. Had been busy on and off with my baking and chocolate orders, that it was finding difficult to sit down and write in my blog. I missed my blog a lot, but it happens sometimes, that when we need to concentrate on some things, we unknowingly miss on something else, which we loved the most. But in my case, I was not missing on my passion for food, as I was doing stuffs related to food, just that i couldn't blog. While creating new designs in cakes and making chocolates, I felt myself so happy and lively. You can check my works on my FB page : Nim's Choco Fantasy
Ok, now that's it for my re-entry into my blog :) Just wanted to tell you all that I was not away from my passion, but yes, i was a bit away from blogging.
Diwali is round the corner. All might be busy making yummy and awesome sweets. I would like to share a recipe, which you all might be knowing, just that I gave a slight twist, and gave a new look and feel of festivity to it.
Enjoy Diwali with your loved ones and stay safe.
1 cup Desiccated Coconut
1 cup Khoya
¼ cup Sugar (powdered, adjust as per your taste)
3 tbsp Cocoa powder
8 – 10 Almonds
A pinch of Lemon yellow colour
Few drops of Rose water
Silver warq for garnishing
- Cook khoya in a fry pan till it turns slightly pink in colour. Now add desiccated coconut and sugar. Mix well and let it cook for about 2 minutes till the sugar is nicely combined with the mixture. Switch off the flame.
- Keep aside 5-8 tbsp of the mixture in another bowl and add lemon yellow colour and rose water. Mix well.
- In the rest of the mixture, add cocoa powder and mix well to form a smooth dough.
- If the dough is too dry, add little milk to it and if it is too wet, add little desiccated coconut.
- Shape the cocoa mixture in the shape of a diya and fill in the yellow coloured khoya mixture in the center.
- Place an almond as flame and garnish with silver warq.
- Your Diya aur bati sweet is ready to be served.
