Watermelon jelly

I had started with the idea of making a simple watermelon salad but stayed a little longer in the kitchen to use the leftover bits of watermelon to make a jelly. I am glad I have a little help from my son. Homemade jelly from fresh fruits is far better than synthetic ones. No cooking was involved, and it took us 10 minutes to put things together. 

Mangomisu or mango Tiramisu

With leftover ingredients from Matcha tiramisu, another tiramisu was definitely in order. Mango tiramisu was a popular choice as it is the season of mangoes. These days I tend to have a jar of mango puree in the refrigerator. This helps me whip up a refreshing milkshake or simple dessert in no time.

Matcha Tiramisu

The simplicity of this dessert will surprise you. I love matcha, and Matcha tiramisu is as elegant as the drink. Kids can enjoy this one without the fear of caffeine. Matcha balances out the rich and heavy feel of the cream, making it light. 

Salted caramel mousse

Here is a decadent, indulgent dessert that will take you back to the childhood candy store. Salted caramel mousse is sweet and has the saltiness from the sauce to cut through it. I added the popcorn and lotus biscuits for some crunch.

Pumpkin Bhapa Doi/ Steamed yogurt

Diwali is tomorrow, and I need to dig into sweets for no reason. This year I will avoid the regular traditional sweets for a dessert that is healthy and is traditional. Bhapa Doi, or steamed yogurt, is a Bengali dessert made with yogurt and can be flavored with seasonal jaggery. With the pumpkin season in full swing, I decided to bring the best of both worlds together. So, I offer you Pumpkin Bhapa Doi or Steamed yogurt.

Mango Saffron semolina halwa

Sweets are part of our Indian culture and tradition; halwa is a quick, easy way to make special occasions. A couple of years ago, I created mango malai laddoo (Indian sweet) for a special occasion, and this year it had to be halwa. The leftover mango puree, which I had frozen, went into my halwa.  Mango Kesar halwa has to be hands down my current favorite.
