Well, after 2 weeks of slaving away at school, I’m finally catching a break. To enjoy this little break, I decided to make myself one of the treats that I’ve been missing most after coming back from India. It’s a dessert called rasmalai (literally meaning the “juice of cream”). Traditionally, rasmalai is a pretty labor intensive dish to make, but you all know how much disdain I have for long preparation times. So this is pretty much as simple as it gets. No muss, no fuss, just a delicious dessert for everybody to enjoy. Even my dad (a general anti-raw guy), gave me a wide-eyes “Wow” when he ate these. So try it out, and tell me what you think!
This is pretty basic and I’m sure posted thousands of times on this page, but I wanted to contribute. In reality, this drink should be consumed at least twice a day on a raw diet, especially if you are ill. It is best to take the drink on an empty stomach and to no eat immediately afterwards. It is best to consume this drink as a breakfast juice, and for an afternoon snack.
*Don’t mind the picture, I don’t have one for this drink so I just posted something I took.
Hi everyone! Well, here it is, my first recipe post since I got back from India. After traveling around for three long months, I learned a lot about how Indian food is put together and what all the spices can be used for. I also learned a lot about the different styles of Indian cooking. Food really differs from state to state in India, almost as if each state is a different country with a different culture (each state also has its own set of dominant languages). Most of the Indian food you are probably familiar with (such as Tandoori Paneer or Naan or Paneer Makhani) is from the state of Punjab (my families home state), but there is so much more variety in Indian food that most people in the West are unfamiliar with. So Iâ€™m going to try to bring some of that variety here, and of course, do it raw!
To start with, Iâ€™m bringing you an all-over-Indian all-time favorite known as halva. Halva is usually made out of semolina, but there are dozens of other varieties like almond, carrot, jackfruit, and strawberry. Halva was something I grew up with, and it was always one of my favorite desserts/breakfasts. Its sweet, spiced, buttery, delicate and just overall amazing. If youâ€™ve ever had freshly made homecooked halva, you know what Iâ€™m talking about. I really tried to capture that traditional halva taste in this raw halva, and I think I hit this on the head. I hope you all try this one out and enjoy it. And to all of Roshiâ€™s Indian followers who have given up this tasty treat, I hope this brings you back to your childhood like it does for me.
I am so excited to share this with you as it is my very first Raw foods discovery.
OK, This is a recipe that I discovered from achin70’s recipe called ‘8 Easy Cacao Snacks’ I did not read the directions properly in my excitement to try my new foods, and I discovered this Yummy yummy powdered surprise instead… Enjoy!!!
