Apple Crumble with Vanilla Ice-cream- SFC Feb’15

This time Sweet Fantasy Club choose Apple Crumble recipe for Feb Series under International dessert category. Apple Crumble is a simple and crisp British Pudding and good option in dessert. The topping is made of butter, flour, sugar, oats rolled together so that it looks like breadcrumbs. Care must be taken to balance the correct amount of crumble with the fruit, or else the filling may seep through and spoil this crust. Traditionally crumble is served with custard but today preferred with ice-creams. Apple crisp or apple crumble is dessert made with baked apples and topped with crisp crust. Different kind of fruits can be used instead of apples, such as peaches, berries, pears and more. I love the crispiness of this recipe and softness of apples which comes out so well. In this recipe, I used Quaker Oats which are so nutrients and healthy ingredients in our balance diet.

The Indian dishes are always heavily influenced by religious and cultural values. Generally, South Indian cuisine brings to mind idlis, dosas, vadas and sambhar. Besides these, South Indian food is very popular for its tasty and aromatic flavors. In South Indian food, huge varieties are available for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food lovers. Traditionally, South Indian cuisine cannot be completed without staple ingredients like coconuts, plantain, jaggery and more. Finally tempering with mustard seeds, curry leaves, red chillies, urad dal and oil. South Indian Cuisine includes the cuisines from five southern states of India: Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Telangana.

You can find Sagar Ratna at 15+ locations in Delhi/NCR region. Through this you can easily assume how much popular this restaurant is in Delhi. It also gives value for money. You can try dosa, uttapam or any other South Indian dish but I recommend south Indian Thali and filter coffee at the end.

Savana Bhavan is a very popular and reliable place to have staple South Indian cuisine. I highly recommend appam and mini idlis which are fantastic in taste. It has a nice atmosphere and gives you great value for money.
