Chai Spiced Bundt Cake

CHAI SPICED EGGLESS BUNDT CAKEWhat is the first thing that comes to your mind when you wake up in the morning? I know most of us want tea, right? until someone is a coffee person! Well I’m whole heartedly a big time tea lover. A cup of tea in morning can keep me going for the entire day. I’m talking about regular milk tea here or the english breakfast tea to be specific. Ofcourse, we don’t get english breakfast tea very easily  over here but I know about it because that saved me for entire three months during my Europe trip. Its quite similar to our Indian black tea and guess what, I have a dessert made out of Indian black tea and I haven’t used any ordinary tea. I’ve used gourmet black tea leaves from the brand Assam1860 and the dessert I created is Chai Spiced Bundt Cake with my choice of spices, a tea flavoured glaze topped with lots of crushed almonds and pistachios.

Ricotta, Cherry and Chocolate Tart

Ricotta, Chocolate & Cherry TartThis Ricotta, Chocolate and Cherry Tart had been on my mind for quite sometime now. The reason I couldn’t make it was unavailability of Ricotta Cheese in my city. It still isn’t available so are you wondering how I came up with dessert. Continue reading

Homemade Ricotta Cheese

Homemade Ricotta CheeseCheese is a favourite to everyone, but most people in India are familiar with only the processed variety which is widely available. Anyone who is into baking or knows much about cheese will never be happy with the cheese availability scenario of India, and so is the case with me. A lot of times I have to let go off so many recipes that I want to try just for a mere reason that an ingredient is not available. In cases like this, the best that can be done is “Substitution”. So, a recipe that I wanted to try out recently, required ricotta cheese which is no way available in my city and I bet it is not available in most of the cities in India. I researched and found out that making ricotta cheese at home is really simple and thought of sharing the recipe with all my readers which can be really helpful. Homemade ricotta cheese requires a handful of usual ingredients and few hours, that can’t get better! Continue reading

Easy Apple Crumble/Apple Crisp Recipe

Easy Apple Crumble recipeThe saying “An apple a day keeps a doctor away” was never quite followed at my home because no one at home is a big fan of apples including me. When I was gradually developing a thing for desserts, I remember I had apple crumble/apple crisp at a friend’s place and trust me it was to die for. I had never thought I would love something made with apple so much. This dessert is not very commonly available in India except for high end hotels and fancy cafeterias but one can of course replicate it and so did I. This recipe is very basic, it can be made with any choice of flavours or with fruit other than apple. And yes! The Food Kiosk is one year old now so stay tuned for some exciting recipes all month long. Continue reading
