Eggless Chocolate Muffins

First time I tried muffins in my kitchen
which comes out so well and fluffy. For this recipe, you have to prepare the
batter just like cake batter, I used maida, cocoa powder, sugar, oil, condense
milk and more for eggless and butterless muffins.  For flavoring, add some raisins which give
nice texture to this eggless chocolate muffin.

About the Author
Hari Nayak is
part of the creative new generation of chefs from Asia. As a young boy, he
watched his grandmother grind fresh spices in the traditional stone mortar, and
heard the splutter of curry leaves being thrown into hot oil, and knew that
being around good food was what he wanted to do, always. Hari is known for his
simple approach to food, staying true to the core Indian values of the dishes
he creates. His inspiration, apart from his village upbringing, lies in an
ability to absorb influences from other cultures and cuisines that he has
experienced in traveling the globe. Since graduating from the Culinary
Institute of America, Hari has worked in the food industry for more than 15
years—including stints at renowned New York restaurants like Aquavit and Daniel.
His other cookbooks include Modern Indian Cooking and My
Indian Kitchen
. Hari lives in New Jersey and appreciates everything that
cooking has brought to him.

Jack Turkel has been a professional photographer for more than
thirty-five years. From the space shuttle and mountain tops to the uniqueness
of his photographs of the everyday, his creative eye has expertly captured an
impressive list of subjects and settings. He did the photography for both My
Indian Kitchen
 and Easy Indian Cooking. He is now focusing
his experience on the art of food photography and styling.

Now time to reveal one recipe which I tried
from this book, love the simplicity of this recipe. Chef used red pumpkin and
masoor dal in this recipe. But I prefer yellow arhar dal instead of masoor dal
which gives nice texture and flavour to this recipe. Hari’s grandmother made
this recipe by using an Indian variety of orange pumpkin but any kind of
pumpkin or hard squash will work well. Love this healthy wealthy soup with
lovely edge of sweetness.

Review for Tropicana Slice Alphonso Mango Drink

For our family summer
season means mango season. Always wait for Mangoes in summer, lots of varieties
available in market to taste and Alphonso is my favorite, also called the King
of Mangoes. Now Alphonso mango is available in liquid form, all because of Tropicana
brand that launch new product Tropicana Slice Alphonso Mango Drink. The bright
orange yellowish color of liquid will make you fall in love with sweet aroma of
Ratnagiri Mangoes which are available in Maharashtra. Ratnagiri Alphonso is one
of the finest mangoes in the world.
Yesterday I received
a big package of six bottles of Tropicana Slice. Taste is so rich and fresh,
original alphonso flavor in drink makes you feel that you are eating a whole
mango. It’s just as homemade mango juice in thick consistency compared other
which are little light in consistency. The price of this product is also under
budget, you have to pay just 50 Rs for 600ml Pet bottle. This is definitely a
better alternative to Frooti and Mazza, which has been supplying mango drink in
market. The packaging was awesome and solid PET bottle.
Personally
recommend all to try once and enjoy the sweetness of Tropicana Slice. This time
I got courier with very high class and creative packaging. I love the way they
pack the bottles in bubble bottle covers.  
You can share this
product as a gift pack on special occasion or whenever you want through Amazon.in,
they delivered the product on free delivery with wonderful packing.
In
a statement, Vidur Vyas, Senior Director Marketing, PepsiCo India, said,
“Tropicana Slice has always focused on bringing to consumers new exciting
innovations, thereby taking the mango indulgence to the next level. Last year,
we launched three signature variants – Kesar, Dussehri and Banganapalli, made
from three most loved varieties of mangoes and this year we complete the range
by launching the undisputed king of mangoes- Tropicana Slice Alphonso, which is
made from pure Ratnagiri Alphonso pulp.”
