Tutti Frutti Ice cream - Eggless Ice cream

I Scream You Scream, We all scream for Ice cream!!! I love this phrase.. So true as far as I am concerned… Ice creams are so common in most parts of the world and each place has its unique flavors and creations. When we were in US, we love the flavors you get there but always missed the delicious and pretty looking tutti frutti ice cream. I was so excited to try it at home the very first time and was very happy with the results. My favorite ice cream flavor made at home.Tutti Frutti Ice cream is a ice cream which is made from the tutti frutti which is a colorful confection containing various chopped and usually candied fruits. It is a very pretty colorful ice cream from its beautiful orange color and the small tutti frutti in it.  Very excited to share this for Kid’s delight.

Mashed Potato

Mashed Potato is a very famous American side dish. For best consistency, use two types of potatoes. Russet potatoes are high starch potatoes and red potatoes are low starch potatoes. A combination of the two is great which gives creamy and also fluffy texture. This can be made a lean one by substituting milk for cream. If you cannot find 2 types of potatoes, you could use the baby potatoes and the normal potatoes as they have different levels of starch..

Kid’s Delight–Sweet Treats!!

Most of us cook for our family and our choices and recipes are based on what our family likes. If you are like me, who never did any cooking before marriage and all your learning started after marriage, then you would done a lot of trial and errors and the first criticism and appreciation would have come from our hubby. And the kids who are soooooo picky. I know most moms complain that their kids are very picky eaters. My daughter is also the same. She is so picky that she will not even try it if it does not look appealing (not just garnish, but should look like some professionally decorated!!!) and then she will not eat the same thing (even if she loves it) more than 3 times in a MONTH!!! I can just go on… So I need to think so much to make her eat. If we moms could have a BIG LIST of kid friendly dishes that would be a boon.. So let us have all such kid friendly recipes in one place and the theme I have chosen is very easy - Sweet treats!!! Thanks to Valli for letting me guest host her event for this month.

Paavaikkai Varuval (பாவைக்காய் வறுவல்)

Paavaikkai Varuval is like paavaikkai chips but needs to be served within a couple of hours of preparation or it can get soggy. This is a very crispy and crunchy dish and has a little bit of the bitterness from the paavaikkai. 6 bitter gourd may sound like a lot, but it will shrink and become very small in quantity. The recipe brings the nutrients that come with bitter gourd and is not very bitter and is palatable.
