Eggless Neapolitan Cake

Neapolitan is a tri color. Have seen the very famous Neapolitan ice creams and this cake also follows the same rule of tri color. We have 3 colors in this cake - green, pink and yellow. When Swathi chose this cake for the baking partners, I was very excited as I would get to do a very colorful cake. Made some changes from the original recipe. The original recipe was done in a loaf pan, I have made this in a 9 inch cake pan, made it Gelatin free and Eggless.

Paneer Pinwheels

Pinwheel is a leavened bread with stuffing which is rolled and then cut before baked. It is a great snack. It tastes best when served hot and can be accompanied with tomato Ketchup or a tangy and spicy chutney. The stuffing is really a personal choice and can be adjusted according to taste, preference and availability. It is pretty easy to do if the pastry sheets are available. I used ready made puff pastry sheets. This makes a great evening snack or perfect for parties.

Carrot Halwa / Gajar Ka Halwa

Carrot Halwa is a very famous Indian desert made from carrots. It tastes best when served either warm or on room temperature. Generally Halwa has a lot of sugar and lot of ghee.. On the contrary, this one is quite less in sugar (you can reduce it even further) and very less in ghee.

Carrot Onion Veg

Carrot veg is a simple and tasty dish.. This recipe can be found in many sites, but frankly this is my version and is a super hit in my house now.. Previously we used to not prefer traditional carrot veg much as it will be too sweet. This Carrot veg is spicy and is very tasty to eat. This tastes best when served hot with any sambar or rasam rice. Adjust salt and chili to taste. I am including this for this BM under cooking carrots in many ways
