Every happy occasion is celebrated with “Kuch Meetha” in our culture. And almost all festivals or occasions are associated with a ritual of making something sweet. I am sharing this post of Sweet Coconut Samosa with a twist of salted caramel sauce. Sounds interesting? These baked sweet samosas can be made for any occasion or even on festivals for guests and salted caramel sauce makes it tastes even better. One more recipe with a twist is on the blog Rice pudding with Vanilla Flavor.

The coconut filling I used in these samosas is inspired by Udiche Modak. Yes, right those steamed Modaks made during Ganpati festival because I simply love it. The sweetness given by jaggery with a dash of freshly grounded cardamom powder  to the shredded coconut tastes so good. I used the Sprig’s Whole Green Cardamom and it’s the best. I was having some spring roll sheets with me so I used it to make the samosas but you can use the regular samosa dough too, just ensure you roll it thinner than regular samosas.

I am a true lover of salted caramel flavor be it popcorns, frozen yogurt, shakes. I am the happiest person after  receiving a jar of Salted Caramel Sauce from SPRIG gourmet. This luscious milk cream caramel has a  touch of pristine sea salt. I am totally hooked to it and simply licking it with a big spoon just like that because it is soooooo yum. You may also top this Sprig Salted Caramel sauce over a cake or fruit salad, fill in pies, or drizzle over ice cream or puddings.

In this recipe, I have baked the samosas in the oven instead of frying it however you can fry it too. Once, the samosas are done finally top it up with lots of salted caramel sauce. With Christmas and New Year around this is a recipe you can definitely try. Let me know, if you try the recipe and do share your feedback in the comment section.

Vanilla Phirni Recipe or Rice pudding with Vanilla Flavor

I am sharing the recipe of Phirni with vanilla flavor. Phirni is a rich, creamy dessert with dry fruits. Phirni tastes best when served chilled in a clay pot or container. The festival season has already begun and I am sure the preparation, shopping, cooking has already started. The best things about these festivals are lots of good food, family time together and a break from our busy schedule. In our culture, festivals are majorly associated with food, sweets, savory snacks especially for Diwali. I am always more excited for the Diwali festival because of the beautiful lights, decorative Rangolis, few crackers (of course), and sweets.

Traditional Indian sweets are hands down the best, but here I tried to give some twist to the Phirni recipe. In order, that there can be something new on the Diwali special menu. So, this time I gave a slight twist to this rice-based creamy pudding Phirni by giving it a mild flavor of vanilla and cranberries.  For the vanilla flavor, I used Demerara Sugar infused with Real Madagascar Vanilla. It is a different kind of sugar with natural, caramel-like flavor of the rich golden Demerara sugar crystals. Not only does it gives an amazing flavor, but nice color and also a pleasant vanilla aroma to the dish. SPRIG’s vanilla sugar is best for sprinkling on cookies or also for giving vanilla flavor to cakes, beverages or baked items.

I also used a pinch of freshly ground cardamom powder made from SPRIG’s green cardamom from Kerala. This is one of the best aromatic cardamoms that I have used. The aroma of cardamom remains in your hand, even by just holding it in your hand for a minute. I have used dried cranberries, it is optional you can add any berries or dry fruits of your choice.

You can order the Demerara Sugar infused with Real Madagascar Vanilla and Green Cardamom from Kerala – SPRIG from amazon. Link mentioned below:
