Weekends are usually time to relax, chill and do nothing. No surprises in my weekend routine – I get up late, have brunch and laze around. I look forward to weekends just for this; doing nothing and unwinding after the busy weekdays. I had more reason to await this weekend, as my brother & family were visiting. And to add to this, it was our 5th wedding anniversary and we had planned a family lunch; it really is wonderful to spend the momentous day with the near and dear ones.
S, my brother’s wife is an awesome cook. She always has recipes that are easy to prepare and extremely tasty, and better yet, it can be easily scaled up to feed a crowd. We made
- Tomato Rice
- Curd Rice
- Vendaikkai thayir pachadi (Okra raitha)
- Aloo fry
I will post the recipes for the rest of the dishes soon, but first let’s whip up this easy kulfi. Go to your nearby grocery store and buy
- 8 oz cool whip
- 1 can Condensed milk (you can buy the fat-free or low-fat variety)
- 2 cans Evaporated milk (again go for the fat-free or low-fat ones)
Whisk the cool whip well for about 5 mins, so that it is nice and creamy. Fold the condensed milk and evaporated milk into the cool whip slowly. Then, add chopped nuts (walnut, almonds, pistachios) and saffron to this mixture. Pour this into kulfi molds and freeze overnight. Voila! An easy and satisfying dessert, that is a sure-fire hit in any party!
