1. Chocolate Muffin (Servings: 12 Muffins )

Preheat oven at 350°F. Whisk plain flour (2 cups) with baking powder (1 teaspoon), 2/3 cups coco powder, sugar (1 ¼ cup), 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 cup chocolate chips in a medium sized bowl. Whisk together 2 eggs, ¾ cup milk and 2 tsp. vanilla essence in another bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.

Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients gradually in the well, along with ½ cup melted butter; stirring to blend. Do not over beat the batter or else muffin would become too tight. Just make sure it is well-mixed.
Pour into muffin pan up to the brim.

Sprinkle with sparkling white sugar(optional). Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Allow five minutes standing time. Remove from oven and allow muffins to cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack.

2. Cashew Barfi (Servings: 20 pieces)

Ingredients: 1 ¼ cup Water, 2 ½ cup Sugar, 1 tablespoon Milk, 1kg Cashew (finely ground), 3 teaspoons Ghee.


Put water and sugar into a bowl and heat. Keep stirring. The mixture should come to a boil and should form a thick syrup. Just before it begins to caramelize pour in milk and stir. Mix in cashew powder and ghee. Heat until the mixture thickens and the fat separates. Continue stirring while cooking. Lightly grease ½ “ high trays and press the barfi mixture onto it. When cool, cut into diamonds or square shapes as desired. Store in airtight boxes.

4. Vanilla Custard (Servings: 4)

Ingredients: 2 eggs, 2 cups milk, 2 tablespoons corn-starch, 1/3 cup sugar,    tsp. vanilla extract


Mix milk, sugar and corn-starch over medium heat. Allow milk to scald. Whisk occasionally to prevent corn-starch from clumping at the bottom. Remove from heat.
