Chinese Crispy Fried Tofu with Sweet Chili Sauce Recipe. It feels like yesterday, but the memory is fresh. Eons ago, I happened to spot some "white slabs" sitting next to my all time favorite Paneer, in the aisle of the grocery store I frequented. See, I was this good girl who went shopping for my mom during the weekends, all on my own, so that my mom can relax her feet. At times I used to buy other stuff that caught my fancy apart from the list my mom provided. So on this particular day, this packet with something called as "tofu", went into my basket.
I, in fact, thought it was probably another "brand" of Paneer and even wondered at the peculiar name ( ..those naive days!!!) Once home, my mom had a different story to tell. In fact I think I love it even more (if that's even possible!)

I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough.
Well, I continued experimenting, and thought why not add some decadent Nutella into the mix. I modified the classic mug cake recipe, added Nutella, and a little more milk and oil than I had been using before. The results were beyond amazing.

Buy vs. How To Cook Perfect Rice Without A Rice Cooker (and store it for months) Rice Balls I have been getting a lot of questions about rice lately, and I am not surprised. Though some people swear by rice cookers I have found them to be inconsistent and generally unreliable, especially when it comes to brown rice. My solution? Stove top. A few years ago I read about this method of cooking rice that supposedly worked “every time” for every kind of rice. The reason this trick works so consistently is that it does not rely on a specific amount of time or water.
Because rice does take so long to prepare, I like to make large batches and freeze individual servings so that I do not have to wait half an hour for dinner every single night. For short grain brown rice, I use about 2 cups of dry grain and a large 2 quart sauce pan. After the last rinse add cold water to your rice until you have at least 3 times the volume of water to rice. When the rice begins to boil, reduce heat to medium and continue to simmer, uncovered. Boil rice until it is almost tender enough to eat. Very Easy to Make Christmas Candy. These are super easy candy recipes.
