Coconut Barfi

Coconut Burfi

I made this as per Shireen Sequeira instructions. Thanks to her.

Left over Haldiram Rasgoola Sugar Syrup. (If the qty. is less, u can add some more water and sugar)
Pour sugar syrup in Kadai and put over the gas on low flame till syrup becomes string consistency. Add Elaichi Powder and grated coconut and keep mixing till it becomes little thick. Pour it onto the back of the plate and spread it out flatly with chapati rolling pin and then cut these into the diamond or square shape.

Chocolate & Walnut Cake

Chocolate & Walnut Cake

Ingredients :

4 Eggs (50 gms each eggs x 4 = 200 gms)

Maida / Wheat Flour = 200 gms
Sugar = 200 gms (I used Dermerara Sugar bought from Arife, Bandra)
Butter = 200 gms (I used Nutrilite Butter – Room Temperature)
Cocoa Powder = 2 tbps. (remove 2 tbps. of Maida / Wheat Flour if u want to put Cocoa Powder)
Baking Powder = 1 tbps.
Vanilla Essence = 1 tbps.
1 cup crushed and Roasted Walnuts
Method :
Line 8” Baking Tray with Parchment Paper and apply oil / butter around and spread out little Maida for greasing and keep aside. Pre-heat Mircrowave Convection at 170 Degrees. (I normally put it for 1.15 hrs.)
Mix Maida / Wheat, Cocoa Powder and  Baking Powder and sieve.
Put Eggs, Sugar, Butter and Vanilla Essence in a vessel and beat well. Add sieved Maida / Wheat Flour, Baking Powder and Cocoa Powder and Walnuts little by little and beat well. Add little milk in case the batter is thick.
Pour the batter into the baking tray and put into the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes or till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
If the batter is too much, you can put some batter into the paper cup cakes and bake these too along with 8” Baking Tray. (I normally put Cup Cake Tray above 8” Baking Tray in the oven and remove Cup Cake Tray after its well baked and continue baking 8” baking tray)Depending on the weight of the eggs, same proportion is reqd. for Maida / Wheat Flour, Sugar, Butter
