Ginger cookies with cheesecake filling

My Official kick off for the holiday season!!
This is my favorite time of the year to bake and cook just because this is one season people eat food without counting calories(that is what I think atleast). So this year I started it off with these wonderful cookies I happened to see pictures of on pintrest..These taste as good as they look. Give it a try and a very Happy Holidays!!

Gulab Jamun

Gulab jamun is a kind of sweet that can be made for any occasion be it a festival or party or a get together. Gulab Jamun is traditionally made with Khoya which is a bit time consuming. So this time I kind of cheated and took a short cut by using milk powder which takes less time but tastes as good as the traditional recipe.
There are lot of ready made Gulab Jamun mixes available in the groceries stores today but I prefer making my own mix :). Give it a try and I promise these jamuns tastes better than the ones made from the ready made mixes..
Last but not least.. Happy Diwali guys!!

Poornalu/Poornam Boorelu/Sweet Chanadal balls

Life sometimes keep you crazily busy...I have been busy taking care of other stuff which kept me away from posting my recipes. Finally I am BACK!! It makes me feel better to be able to resume my blog YAYYYYY!! 
Coming to my wonder today, people from south India need no introduction about this dish. This is most popular and traditional dish prepared during this time of the year in my place. This time of the year is called as 'Sravana Masam' and most people perform special rituals(known as Varalakshmi Vratham) during this time and Poornalu are prepared as the main offering to Goddess Lakshmi. Here is the recipe to make yummy Poornalu.......

Potato Salsa Turnovers

It is my vegan day again and I have a potluck at work. It being the end of the week, my refrigerator is almost empty. All the vegetables I have left on hand are some potatoes. I usually have a pack of puff pastries and wonton wrappers in my freezer section. So I decided to make some turnovers with potatoes instead of good old mushrooms :)
I have to say that they turned out well than I expected and this dish was an hit at the potluck.
