LEBANESE DESSERT RECIPE - ZNOUD EL SIT / BREAD RECIPES

DESSERTS RECIPES / LEBANESE DESSERTS

Znoud el sit is a Lebanese dessert made of filo pastry ( like puff pastry or spring roll pastry) which is available in the middle Eastern grocery frozen section. But many of us are unable to get this pastry easily and so here is an easy method for making this melt in mouth Lebanese dessert at home. I substituted bread slices instead of fillo sheets. Bread snacks and bread desserts are pretty easy to make and delicious too. This dessert using bread is also one among the same. Quite easy to make and is really delicious in each bites. Here white bread slices are flattened, stuffed with cheese, rolled, deep fried and then dipped in flavored syrup. Sugar syrup is flavored with rose water and orange blossom water. As I don't have orange blossom water, I skip the same. You can use thick cream or ashta cream ( made with cornflour and condensed milk ) instead. Hey sweet lovers, this dessert recipe or sweet recipe with bread is for you. You can attract your guests with this inviting and attractive sweet. Hope you all like this lebanese dessert and do try at home atleast once. Drop your feedback and please subscribe my channel Ayesha's kitchen if you like my videos .

Kerala snacks are loved by most of the malayalis and even these snacks are very popular among present generation also. Some authentic malabar snacks or kerala snacks always impart  a nostalgic taste like pazham pori, neyyvada, unnakaya, unniappam, chattipathiri, neyyappam, paal cake, kalthappam etc. Recently I have shared a detailed recipe blog and video showing how to make neyvada at home. This time am with yet another kerala Teastall snack or sweet recipe. Paal Cake is a very popular teastall sweet or snack and it's taste resembles almost that of neyvada. For me, paal cake is a sweet accompaniment to evening tea especially when it is raining outside. Those rainy days with gloomy skies and me with a cup of black tea without sugar accompanied with this paal cake, a nostalgic feel , right? But this snack is surprisingly lesser known even in other districts of kerala. Really it's a mouthwatering sweet for me. Though this cake is named as paal cake which means milk cake, it is a sweet without milk. Paal cake has a crispy crust with soft juicy inside. So do try my paal cake recipe and drop your feedback.

FIRELESS COOKING COMPETITION RECIPES / NO COOK NO FIRE RECIPES

COOKING COMPETITION RECIPES

Hi foodies. Welcome back to Ayesha's kitchen, the taste of Malabar. These days I was little busy with my family and guests. My guests knew that am a food blogger and a Youtuber too. So they always expect some outstanding dishes and desserts from me. Every weekend I prepare some desserts as I know that I have guests the next day.  So I prepare puddings or related desserts on those days as my daughter and my husband never finish such sweet treats.  I don't have a serious sweet tooth but I crave for a sugary sweet or some desserts after my lunch meal and dinner meal even am completely full.  My little kid always craves for cakes only. She is the big sweet tooth baby in our home. 
A few months back, I had participated in a cooking competition. A fireless cooking competition conducted by Habitat school, um al Quwain. My kids are studying in that school and I was forced by my friends to participate in that competition. The contest was on October 16, 2018, as a part of the World food day celebration. It was for Kinder garden parents and kids only. All those fireless recipes were very innovative with an eye-catching presentation. As the competition was based on no-cook no fire recipes only, the recipes proved that even without fire one can make smackingly delicious dishes within no time. Vegetable salads, chat recipes, biscuit rolls, bread recipes and bread sandwiches, lollipops, fruit salads, cocktails and juices etc were some of those no fireless recipes. I made five recipes in one hour. Cashew coconut cake, coconut laddu which I named as snowballs same like Raffaello candy, Marzipan with powdered cashew, mortadella rollups and royal fruit salad using fruits and nuts. And I won the contest. Yes, I participated in a food competition for the first time and got the first position too. My little (big) joys of life. I have already shared the recipe video for bread roll or bread sandwich. You can watch the video for   Mortadella bread rolls here. This fireless sandwich is pretty interesting to make and kids will love that sandwich for sure. You can even pack this bread rolls in their snack box too. I hope you all watched my video for MARZIPAN. If not kindly watch and here is the video link Marzipan. Like so cashew coconut cake is another center of attraction in that contest. The video for the same is here Cashew coconut cake.
