Watermelon Granita-Granita is a frozen dessert usually made with 2 or 3 ingredients. I have been working on making a healthy version of fruit granita and clicking it successfully. Yeah…Clicking was tougher than figuring out a healthy watermelon granita recipe. Granita may make you think something great or tough. The name is just a sophistication. It is just like the jalfrezi which made me super mad to even to give a try. Granita is nothing but freezing any fruit juice or combination of juices with sweetener, raking/scraping, and serving…No gulping 🙂 I tried 3 to 4 variants and none at home has so far had a chance to even taste. Yep. I gulped the moment I clicked. Something like the Indian Kola sticks which is one of the famous street foods. Without taking much of your time let me share the watermelon granita recipe.

Strawberry Icecream Recipe:
Hello everybody 🙂 How do you do? It has been more than 2 weeks since I posted a recipe on my blog.We had a quick trip to our native and was away from home.I made all plans and had around 20 recipes to post during this period.But once we started travelling I didn’t get my mood back to sit and work.In simple words, I took a break and fed my laziness 😉 Coming to today’s Strawberry Icecream Recipe, I had tried two versions of eggless homemade ice creams at home last year and both were super hits among friends and family.But both the versions either called for condensed milk or corn flour+milk or some other ingredients. I wanted to give it a try with simple healthy ingredients and hence chose this 3 ingredients trial. I wasn’t confident until I clicked the last picture and gulped it. More than the recipe, clicking the pictures were real nightmares.It was too hot outside and when I set the frame and brought the ice cream it got melted or my frame setting was so bad.Somehow I managed to click few less than average images to include in the recipe.It melts in no time since we haven’t used any thickener or artificial ingredients.Come let’s have look at the simple 3 ingredients eggless no white sugar no churn strawberry ice cream recipe.
Disclaimer: The recipes with healthy ingredients/no preservatives might not be same as store-bought or restaurants like taste or similar shelf life. But I definitely guarantee a high health quotient.Icecreams are perfectly for once in a while consumption.

Rasgulla-This is my most favorite sweet.Wondering how come a person who has avoided most whites in the pantry love Rasgulla!!Yeah-I used to just gobble up this Bengali sweet in no time.But it is a yearly twice kind of event. No harm right?Though I avoid whites in my pantry I don’t mind using once in a while or having them at a party or offering my kid during an outing.I tried making rasgullas at home some two years back and these recipe images have been lying on my hard disk since then. Accidentally a friend of mine wanted to know the recipe of spongy rasgulla,so posting it now.

Today’s recipe is Eggless Red Velvet Cupcakes or Eggless Beetroot Cup Cakes. This Red Velvet Cake/Beetroot cake has no APF/maida, no white sugar, no raising agents, no butter and trust me it was done in a jiffy. Don’t you feel tempted to give it a try? Baking is simply therapeutic and easy if you begin loving it. My love for baking with healthy ingredients can’t be explained really. I wanted to try an eggless red velvet kind of a cake with natural colouring using beetroots and some baking without raising agents(baking powder/baking soda). I didn’t have much courage to give it a try because there were too many to experiment like no white flour, no white sugar, no raising agents, no artificial colouring and lots. All of these are pretty much different from the usual recipes. And above all, we wanted to do some topping with frosting cream too. Too much na for a beginner??? I know 😉 I got some courage from my friends Kalai Rajesh, Ravneet Kaur and Gouthami(Click here for her recipe) who posted similar experimentation in the recent days. The trial session went on last weekend and it came out pretty well except for few corrections which I learnt from experts. I have included all details under my observations. Please read the recipe in detail and give it try. There was also a cranberry choco cake made with the same combinations which will be posted this week soon.
