My Mitahaar

Well I finally got around to starting my blog for recipes - completely inspired by talented people like my friend V and the likes of Shilpa at aayis recipes .

I love to cook and I find the idea of instantly sharing a brand new culture simply by opening up my palette to a new taste truly fascinating. Also of course there are very few of us who would not find satisfaction in cooking and feeding people who simply don't have enough - I've never been able to understand how our race allowed for a calamity like hunger. Just look around you - we are blessed with an abundance of things to eat. Yet there are starved children on the street. Lets do what we can about that ... I'm sure a lot of you help in many many ways.

But for here, we'll try to keep it happy shall we? If you like to cook and want to read or share some recipes, please visit my new space at http://mitahaar.blogspot.com .

I hope to sample many new tastes trough my new blog and will be happy to answer any queries if I know how to!

Khajur Burfi or Rolls
1 tin condensed milk
1 kg khajur deseeded (dates)
250 gm mixed dryfruits (badam, cashew, pista)
1/2 cup dessicated dry coconut
Method
Break up khajur coarsely
Add milkmaid and dryfruit all in a heavy, non-stick pan.
Cook on slow flame, stirring continuously.
Do not allow to stick to bottom.
It takes a while to cook
Stir gently till a soft lump forms.
Spread some of the coconut on a butter paper sheet.
Grease hands and take a chunk of the mixture and roll into a thick roll, on the sheet, all the coconut to cover it.
Chill the rolls in the fridge
Cut into slices
Or set in a tray and cut into squares.
