Pineapple lassi recipe, pineapple lassi with toasted coconut

Pineapple lassi is one of my favorite as pineapple is my most favorite fruit. The flavour is really sweet and I have added toasted coconut to it for a twist, which adds a nice texture and flavour to the lassi.
I love pineapple flavour, be it natural or in artificial form. Biscuits, cakes etc I would die for. My all time favorite mocktail is Virgin pina colada🍹🍍. After coming here in Singapore, very often I started buying pineapple. Posted few recipes using pineapple too. Check it out
After mango lassi, pineapple lassi is my favorite,  second option simply because of the chopping process😁. Loved the texture toasted coconut adds to this. Recently I used to love caramel coconut drink in Coffee bean and loved the idea of adding toasted coconut to the drink. The flavour it imparts is really very addictive.

Eggless caramel chip cookies recipe

caramel chip cookies
Eggless caramel chip cookies recipe, crisp from outside, soft/ chewy inside caramel chip cookies with full video, step by step pictures.
There is something I love much about butterscotch and caramel flavours. Drinks as well as such flavoured snacks. So when I saw this pack of Hershey's sea salt caramel chip at Fairprice, I had nothing in mind, but took a pack to try out something with it. Wanted to bake something with it, so that Aj too would enjoy it for snack. I baked this cookies twice already and Aj loves it. I too gobbled a lot in the name of tasting it. First time, I made used yogurt as egg replacer, again I adapted the eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe I posted earlier, but cut down a little bit of butter and sugar in the recipe. The result was good still. Aj loved it a lot.

Eggless caramel chip cookies recipe, crisp from outside, soft/ chewy inside caramel chip cookies with full video, step by step pictures.
Eggless caramel chip cookies recipe

Recipe ingredients:

All purpose flour - 1 & 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Salt - 1/8 tsp
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 2 & 1/2 tbsp
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Butter - 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
Sea salt caramel chips - 3/4 cup


  1. Preheat oven at 170 deg C. Line a baking tray with butter paper, Grease it with butter.
  2. Take all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix it well.
  3. In another bowl, place butter (at room temperature), vanilla and sugar. Beat well until creamy using whisk. 
  4. Add milk and beat again until light and pale.
  5. Add flour mixture little by little and gather together with your finger tips.
  6. Once you form a dough, add caramel chips and fold gently to incorporate in the dough.
  7. Divide into equal sized balls, 1 tbsp each. Arrange leaving space in the baking tray.
  8. Flatten slightly into thick cookies. 
  9. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, or until the cookies start turning golden at the edge.
  10. Take out the baking tray and let it sit for a minute or two.
  11. Then take out the cookies. and cool them completely over wire rack before storing.
  • My oven beeps once the preheat set temperature is attained. If yours doesn't, preheat for 10 mins.
  • Keep an eye after 8 mins, as the baking time might vary from oven to oven.
  • I used aluminium foil, but recommend to use butter paper for best result. 
  • At step 6, if the dough is too dry, sprinkle milk to make it form a dough. Take care, not to add more, the dough should not be sticky.
  • I used demerara sugar. You can use granulated white sugar too. Brown sugar will give different texture.
  • All the ingredients are measured levelled. 
  • Do not over bake, the caramel chip might get burnt. 
  • Instead of vanilla essence, a tsp of pure vanilla extract can be used.
  • I baked in middle rack with both  top and bottom heating elements.

chocolate covered strawberries for valentine's day

chocolate covered strawberries
Chocolate covered strawberries are easy and quick treat for Valentines day. Perfect dessert for any celebration. Full video and step by step pictures.
I love strawberry flavoured chocolate. I tasted strawberry flavoured chocolate from Belgium when I was a kid. It was melting all over my hands, mouth that I stood at backyard to enjoy it. Total mess, something like silk ad. But still remember that finest quality chocolate. After that, I have tried many brands, nothing tastes perfectly balanced like that.

Corn pakoda recipe, sweet corn pakoda

Corn pakoda recipe, perfect snack for tea, coffee time. Sweet corn pakoda recipe with full video, step by step pictures. Mint, fennel seeds and fresh ginger garlic paste makes it so flavourful that the whole house will be filled with the pakoda flavour lingering around.
Harini Kumarasamy, a reader friend sent me this wonderful recipe last time when I posted orange peel kuzhambu. I took sweet corn from Fairprice after long time just to try sweet corn pakoda recipe. There is a time when I used to buy corn so much and we were crazy about sweet corn in spicy chaat form. Just boil, add butter or chilli powder, chaat masala and lemon juice combo. Then got bored and stopped completely buying sweet corn. Just buy it when I need to try some recipe with it.
