Easy Dessert Recipes To Try At Home This Monsoon
While you watch it rain outside your window, snuggled up with your favourite book, all you need is a sinful bowl of a decadent dessert to make the monsoon magnificent. Well, the monsoon reminds people of fried savouries like pakodas and samosas. But hot gulab jamun and malpua can give your taste buds a sweet treat. Today, we are going to share with you some dessert recipes that are so easy that you would definitely try them at home.
Here are some recipes that can make your monsoon memorable:
- Moong dal halwa: Easy to make, moong ka halwa is the perfect dessert that you can eat at any time of the day. Soak 1 cup moong dal in water for 4 to 5 hours. You can soak it overnight also. Strain the water and in a mixer grinder, make a coarse paste. In a pan, take one cup of ghee, add the moong dal paste. Keep on the stirring to avoid lumps. Add ½ cup sugar (if you like it sweeter, you can add more) along with 2 to 3 tbsp of saffron water and 1 hot cup of milk. Cook it till you see the ghee separating. At this point, add ⅓ tsp cardamom powder. Garnish the halwa with chopped pistachios and almonds.
- Jangiri: Soak urad dal (black gram) for 2 hrs. Grind it in a mixer grinder with very little water. Add a pinch of salt and rice flour. For colour, add saffron water or food colour. You can also add freshly ground turmeric to give it colour and make it healthy. You can use a jalebi maker bottle or a cloth with a hole to make swirls. Just practise once before doing it directly on the pan. Take a big pan for deep frying. Heat oil and draw jangiris in the oil. Cook until they are light brown. Soak them in the sugar syrup. Garnish it with pistachio.
- Gajar ka halwa: A plate of hot gajar ka halwa can make anyone’s mouth water. Take half kg fresh and tender carrots and peel them. Blend them in a mixer grinder. Take a heavy bottom pan to avoid the halwa from sticking to the bottom. On the pan, heat one cup of ghee and carrots. Cook them until a nice aroma comes. Pour 2 cups of milk. On a low flame, cook until the milk nearly evaporates. Stir continuously to avoid burning the halwa. Next, add 1/2 cup of sugar and stir until it is mushy. Add one tbsp and garnish it with roasted dry fruits like pistachios, almonds and cashew nuts.
- Almond chocolates: If you are health conscious, then treat yourself with homemade chocolate that is made without any artificial ingredients. Melt ½ cup coconut oil in a pan. Stir ½ cup cocoa powder, 3 tbsp honey, and vanilla extract into melted oil. When cool blend them in a mixer. Pour the mixture into a mould. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. You can also use jaggery instead of honey.
