Sakkarai Pongal Recipe| Sweet Pongal (Without Milk)

Everyone at home is enjoying the Sunday after lunch sleep when I am writing this post. We have a great weekend and I have experimented a few recipes which I will be posting soon :) Happy and I love all varieties of payasam, but Jany doesn't show much interest. I love the sweet Pongal that is served in Saravana Bhavan and Murugan Idli shop. I already have a version of sweet Pongal here with milk. l always wanted to replicate the taste of hotel style sweet Pongal. I got this recipe from my neighbour and it tastes divine. Let's go to the recipe.

RoseMilk Popsicle Recipe/ Paal Ice/ Kuchi Ice | Summer Special

I wanted to post many summer special drinks, icecreams, popsicles for this summer. But one after the other we were sick and couldn't have anything chilled. Finally, I tried this popsicle yesterday and it is a quick recipe which can be made with only three ingredients. We really enjoyed the popsicle this weekend. My mom makes so many flavours of popsicles when I was a kid. My neighbour supplied us with the sticks from the nearby ice factory. Those memories of my childhood were really precious. I am planning to post few more summer special recipes soon.

Basic Fondant Icing Cake Recipe

I wanted to try fondant icing for a very long time now, after I saw Happy's first birthday cake from French Loaf. It really attracted our guests who came to the party. From then I was trying to learn this fondant decorations using tutorials. I even tried to attend classes, but I couldn't make it because of my full-time Job. Finally, I tried my hands-on this, decorating a very basic vanilla cake. You can check the recipe for vanilla sponge cake here. I have used rolled fondant, which I got it from Passionate Baking. I have tried very basic shapes and it came out really well. Even though it was not very perfect, I am happy being this my first trial. Let's go for the preparation steps: (I have missed to click few steps in my excitement)
