This one is a very simple one,first I tasted in my Sis-in-law's place...we liked it very much.If you are looking for any dessert thats very easy to make and yet tasty to impress the guests,try this,they sure will be satisfied...
There are custard powders available in stores...in various flavours,buy your's favorite and add your favorite fruit too(can add more than one kind of fruit,mixed) and enjoy a delightful dessert!
Don't you have custard powder? You can substitute 2 tablespoons of cornflour,1/2 a pinch of food colour of your choice and 1/4 tsp of vanilla essence, for the given below recipe...essence is also your choice and can change it according to the fruit you use..
To my taste,I like apple the best.
|Apple||1 no.chopped finely(skin peeled & de-seeded)|
|Milk||500 ml (2 cups)|
|Custard powder||2 tblsp|
|Sugar||4-6 tblsp (adjust as per ur taste)|
|Elachi||if desired 1 powdered(I dint add)|
- In a small bowl take the custard powder and add a 5 tblsp of milk from the 500 ml and dissolve it into a smooth liquid without any lumps.
- Boil the remaining milk in a heavy bottomed/non stick vessel.
- Add the custard powder dissolved in milk,slowly and stir well continuously.
- It will get thick immediately,so be careful.After few minutes,remove from heat and cool down.
- Refrigerate it and at the time of serving,chop apples finely and add it to the cold custard..mix well and serve cold!
- I topped with caramel syrup I had .

My version,I learnt from my mom...I have always been with her in kitchen and watched her making this for gazillion times. This is the perfect recipe that clicked to me...though I have tried many. I somehow don't like coriander seeds(smell) in the powder part.
For Puliyogare,we make pulikaichal in advance and can store for long time,say a week,even no need for refrigeration!!
Whenever we go for a day's picnic,or we travel,my mom makes puliyogare and packs in banana leaf.And the moment we open for our lunch,it tastes heavenly!
A week back when we went to Phuket, even I made this pulikaichal and carried in a container and as we were staying in a villa,we were able to cook rice,so we made tamarind rice and carried for a trip within the Island!
Everybody,including my friends liked very much ! So here's the recipe,of pulikaichal!
Warning:This puliyogare will be hot and not sweet like the puliyogare mix we get readymade!! You can keep the pulikaichal for 15-20 days in fridge and use when ever you want,even stays good when kept out for a week. The tamarind rice even can be carried when you are in travel, it will keep good for long time.
I am very glad to send this pulikaichal recipe to Lakshmi's event Meals On Wheels...

Sorry for disappearing just like that for some days from blogging!!I was out for a holiday trip with friends From now I think I would be able to be regular like before!
After I started cooking, I have tried making rava idli two or three times,but I was not much impressed with the results...Then one day,my friend S,asked me to try MTR instant mix for rava idli,which I liked so much!They say,that MTR only invented rava illi!! Then some period I was a big fan of that and even I have served my guests,and they also liked it so much...
