Best of the Year 2014

“Hope Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, 
Whispering 'it will be happier'...” 
                                            ― Alfred Tennyson


These words remind me of that there is a shy new year that is peeping round the corner just like a demure bride. No one knows what surprises she will unfold!

So do you have some resolutions for the coming New Year? I did not have any till I asked this question! Now, I will have to make some for myself there is very little time for that but better late than never!!

But for now I will like to look back and try to enjoy the year that is gone by!! Look at what I have made right and try and redo things better, try to scale newer challenges.

Come join me in this round up for this year!

  • The most eventful time was when I did the Indian Food Odyssey . I crisscrossed the country with my friends and learnt India once again all over again! 
  • Ambe che Sasav with the mango trees all blooming again how  can I forget this deliclous traditional accompaniment! 













  • In the month of September we had a whirlwind tour round the World and what an awesome collection we had. Its difficult to choose what I liked beat but I think these handmade Lengmans noodles were something I will like to try again.
  • You can learn from the all the time this Split Lemon Bread  and the discussion we had on wattsup I learnt how to bake better. So this was needs to make it to this roundup.




Wish you all a
Happy New Year and may all your fondest wishes come true!!

Kharwas/Ginna/Pos a Sweet Cheese

Kharwas/Ginna/Pos

This week I am sharing with you a delicious sweet called Ginna in Kanadda, Kharwas in Marathi and Pos in Konkani.  

This is a sweet that is made from the bovine colostrum milk and it’s amazingly delicious. Getting the colostrums milk was easy when we were kids and the milkman used to deliver milk home we used to have this sweet often. Now I hardly see it in fact my kids do not know what I am talking and since its sweet they would rather not try it out.

The other day hubby came home with a packet of the dehydrated colostrums, it was simple to make.

The instructions were simple…
Mix ½ litre or 3 cups of raw milk with 100 grms sugar (1/2 cup) and some elicihi/green cardamom powder and the powder from the packet. Stir well till there are no lumps and the sugar dissolves.
Steam for 10-15 minutes in a vessel, keep a lid on the vessel.
Remove from the cooker/ steamer and serve chilled after you slice it in desired shapes.
Soft delicious cheese that just melts in the mouth.
 
Kharwas/Ginna/Pos
 In Goa this sweet that is called pos is flavoured with Jeera/cumin and jaiphal/nutmeg.
Linking to Varada's Blog Anniversary Event its a general photography event and Varada wants to say something about the picture.
 I have Cannon Powershot SX150IS.  The picture was taken at ISO400,Aperture was 1/15,and F8. I love Kharwas and so could not resist slicing into it, had to check if it was as soft as it seemed you see. I did then realize that the shot will look good. The reason I arranged the bowls as they are was because I thought that was the only way I will get all the bowls and somehow I like the arrangement. I think I am getting repetitive in my arrangement, needs no thought. The shot was taken in max. 5 minutes like I said no thoughts behind it!!
