Mango jelly with matcha cream

Mango jelly with matcha cream is a simple, elegant dessert loved by all. It can appeal to both kids and adults. Soft whipped matcha cream sits atop healthy homemade jello. I have come across drinks with mango and matcha, and I am sure they taste delicious, but I wanted to try something different. 

Thai red curry with cottage cheese

Thai cuisine has a special place in our house. Both my parents and in-laws love it. I always tend to keep a jar of curry paste from stores for those sudden cravings. However, preparing the curry paste at home from scratch makes it so much better. Presenting homemade red thai curry with Indian cottage cheese or paneer.

These mango and saffron pancakes will blow your mind. Saffron and mango flavors blend beautifully. I combine these flavors very often for dessert. However, this was the first time I tried it for breakfast. 

Matcha (latte) affogato

The name “Matcha (latte) affogato” sounds so exotic right? But it’s pretty simple and easy to make. Just some good quality matcha and some ice cream yield a beautiful dessert. Matcha (latte) affogato is a refreshingly light dessert, and we loved it. 

Mango coconut layered panna cotta

Mango season is upon us, and I could not resist making this dessert. It was a request from my son, who is a Mango lover too. He calls it Mango jelly; I call it layered mango and coconut panna cotta. Coconut and mango flavors work well together.

Chicken Haleem

Haleem is a rich lentil-based stew that has shredded meat and tastes unique. It is popular in parts of India, other Southeast Asian countries, and the Middle east. I tried it for the first time in the Uae. There was a Pakistani restaurant close to where we lived. Those days I was culinarily challenged, and my cooking skills were below average.

Here is a light dessert for all the coffee lovers. Coffee panna cotta with dalgona whip topped with cream.
Three layers of delightful creamy texture are pure bliss. The dalgona layer strengthens the coffee flavor. So, you may want to skip it while making for children.
