Bournvita Semolina Cake and New Domain





Many of you must have known by now that I have a new domain. Since I haven't officially announced this change, I thought I should, in this post.

So here it is - http://www.indianvegetariankitchen.com/

Even if you type my old blog address, you will still be redirected to my new site. I am assuming you are getting updates in your reader and email after the change of address. If you are not getting my recipes, please leave a comment.

I really liked the Chocolate Halwa recipe posted by Jagruti. I tried it right away and it turned out absolutely yummy. I did make some changes to the original recipe. Instead of cocoa, I used bournvita. It gave a nice dark, rich color to the cake.

Ingredients:
Sooji/Semolina/Rava - 1/2 cup
Bournvita/Sweetened Cocoa/Drinking Chocolate - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Ghee/Clarified Butter - 1/4 cup
Broken Nuts - 2 tsp (optional)

Method:
Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan. Roast cashews and/or almonds till golden brown. Set aside.
In the same pan, roast semolina on low flame to light golden brown color (8-10 minutes).
Boil milk in another vessel.
When semolina is roasted well, add hot milk and stir continuously for a couple of minutes.
Add sugar, bournvita or cocoa and stir till they dissolve completely.
Add rest of the ghee and nuts and mix well.
Transfer the mixture to a greased plate and let it cool.
Cut into desired shapes or have it as halwa.

  38. Most of the codes ending in 1, 2 or 3 have expired. Thankfully, there are replacements so I thought I’d share the ones I haev:

    MTECH8 or EMMA7 for 10% off your order
    MTECH9 or EMMA8 for 20% off $50 or more
    MTECH10 or EMMA9 for 30% off .com domains (and it works on renewals)
    They don’t expire till July 2010 and have no limitations on how much they can be used

    Plus MTECH25 or EMMA25 for 25% off $100 or more, but these expire end of August 09, so use them quick!
