Basundi–Indian Dessert Recipe

 

This is a rich milk based dessert. This is usually prepared by reducing milk and garnishing with roughly chopped nuts. For this yummy dessert, you don't have to scrap the fat; instead you can collect the fat layer that forms on the top of the boiling milk. This gave a good texture and a delicious taste.

Manathakkali Keerai(Black Night Shade Leaves) Poriyal

It’s an excellent and healthy side dish in any healthy meal. Manthakkali Keerai has lots and lots of medicinal value. I used Manathakkali keerai (leaves of black nightshade) combining moong dal and made dry curry.

They taste good and can be used as a side dish. Moong dal when cooked direct till it is 3/4 done and combined with any green will taste good and give the curry consistency. Manathakkali Plant is very common in South India. It’s a medicinal plant and used widely in Ayurvedic medicine. Leaves of this plant are believed to cure stomach related problems and liver problems.
