Easy Mango Passionfruit Ice cream recipe (eggless)

Mango season is upon us here in India, which means a lot of Mango recipes coming your way. Nothing screams summer louder than this mango passionfruit ice cream. It’s bursting with the fresh and refreshing flavors of mangoes, and with a slight tang of passionfruit. A perfect treat for the summer heat.

A few years back, when I was still in US, I had visited India during the summer months. Häagen-Dazs had just opened its first outlet in Delhi and I went to try it out. They had certain local flavors and mango passionfruit ice cream was one of them. I had never eaten passionfruit anything before and when I tested the mango passionfruit ice cream, I was sold. It was tangy, creamy yet refreshing. The flavors were fresh and since then I have been meaning to recreate that flavor combination of mango and passionfruit at home.

I had some frozen passionfruit puree left from the time I made the passionfruit ice cream. When mango season hit, it was one of the first things I set out to make. Its weird how tastes evolve as we grow older. As a kid I hated mangoes- I didn’t like the mess that came with eating mangoes (In India, we use our hands and mouth to eat mangoes, and it gets messy). Now, I don’t mind the mess and in fact love mangoes. They work very well in desserts, and the possibilities are endless.

This recipe is easy. Just a whiz in the blender and you are set. I used an ice cream maker (this one), but in case you don’t have one you can still get good results. The addition of milk powder is what keeps this ice creamy and keeps it from forming ice crystals.

Hope you get to try the recipe. If you do, please share your feedback here. You can also tag me on Facebook, instagram or twitter.

A quick recipe for homemade whole wheat pizza dough that gives a flavorful crust.

Quick Whole wheat pizza dough

We are a pizza loving family.  A good crust, flavorful sauce and your favorite toppings- that’s what makes a good pizza. I love making pizza from scratch at home- I can control everything that goes into each component and make sure each element is to our taste and liking.

For a long time I was using this recipe for pizza dough. I absolutely love the Peter Reinhart pizza dough recipe. It gives amazing results each time. While I love it, it does require some planning ahead of time. If you want pizza on the fly, unless you have that dough in your freezer, you will need to wait an extra day to eat pizza.

The recipe for pizza dough that I am sharing today is quick. It requires a one hour rest time, which I always use to prep the rest of the ingredients for my pizza. You can also use that one hour rest time to make your pizza sauce (this is the recipe I use). From start to finish, it takes me 25 active minutes in the kitchen to prep everything, including the sauce and pizza dough. Dinner is always a breeze on pizza days.

The best part of this recipe is that the pizza base is 100 % whole wheat! You can add some wheat germ to the dough if you want to make it even more healthy.

Homemade Challah breadHomemade Challah breadHomemade Challah bread
Today I am sharing this recipe for the traditional Jewish egg bread, Challah. I will be the first to admit that when I first read the name, long back, I pronounced the “ch” in challah bread how you pronounce it in “chart”. I must have heard someone say it “Halla” and thats when I corrected myself. If you are not sure how to pronounce Challah bread, check it out here.

Baking Challah bread at home has always been on my wish list. I think its the braiding that has always caught my attention and with easter only a week away I thought it would be perfect to have a go at one of the prettiest shaped breads I know.

It also gave me the opportunity to finally bake from the Hot Bread Kitchen cookbook that I have had on my shelf for a while. This recipe for whole wheat challah bread is from there.
