KATIRA DRINK

Katira Drink Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Beat the heat with this cool Katira Drink. This fabulous drink sweetened with sugar syrup will inspire guests to linger for one more glass. It  is  available only  during  the fasting month  from Ramadan bazaar throughout the South East Asian  countries.

You'll be amazed at the pleasing flavors that pop out when you combined  katira (gond katira), basil seed, kembang semangkok (malva nuts) with  evaporated milk.

This drink is made to drive away the heat inside the human body, cure sore throat, to counteract toxicity also has positive medicinal  effects on human bodies.

Before assembling the drink you need to soak the katira, kembang semangkok overnight until they expand and  prepare the sugar syrup by boiling the sugar and water  until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool to room temperature. Also soak the basil seed in cold boiled water until it swells then drain.

Add a sweet twist to this basic katira drink by adding  chopped dates/sweet corn,   one or two drops of yellow, red or green food coloring to it. With added color makes it look  festive and more enjoyable to drink.

The intense lemon flavor and delicate texture of this Eggless  Lemon Tart make it a perfect ending for any meal. Made from scratch, the crust contains less fat than a regular recipe.

Since I really wanted something easy to make that was sweet and bursting with tangy  lemon flavors, I settled on this Eggless  Lemon Tart. It is also an egg free recipe for the filling as well as  for the pastry.

I tried it, my family tried it. We all agreed that it came out pretty darn tasty. It had zing. The only thing that it did not have was a lot of colors for that I have used one or two drops of yellow food coloring in the filling.

So this is my low fat and  Eggless Lemon Tart recipe. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

FRUITY JELLO

My son has been asking  jelly for quite some time now. I prefer to make my own instead of buying simply to avoid a ton of sugar, artificial flavors and coloring from those ready made ones.

Prepare this Fruity Jello before bed or while you are making dinner for a fast and filling breakfast the next day.  Using mixture of dried fruit. rolled oat and dragon fruit, this jelly is refreshingly fabulous.

You can use this recipe to make just about any kind of jelly. Which fruit to use is totally up to you, feel free to create your own combo of dried fruit and fresh fruit that suits your taste  also make use of unique mold that your kid would love.

*CORIANDER CHICKEN*

Coriander Chicken Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Coriander Chicken is one of the tastiest and most unusual  dishes I have ever tried.  This recipe combined both the coriander seeds and coriander  leaves for an amazing blend of flavor.

The only down side is that once you start cooking, you're pretty much tied to the stove. It requires a lot of stirring, checking and adding things and so on.  Still don't let it put you off, it is absolutely fabulous. Seriously it has to be tried!

*DATE OATMEAL BARS*

Oatmeal Bars Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

Date Oatmeal Bars are a wonderful treat anytime of the day.  Sweet and soft dates are sandwiched between not so buttery oat and flour mixture. They are easy to make, everyone will love them.

Since most of us eat way too much sugar in our diet, I try to use less sugar and more nutritious ingredients such as fruits, nuts and oat. My date bar recipe has these characteristics.  It  is a very nice alternative to have an easy  breakfast or snack instead of going into a fast food restaurant.

This dessert encourages us to prepare a simple meals from basic ingredients instead of expensive and less nutritious processed foods .I have tweaked the recipe as per my preference by omitting sugar in the filling and reduced the amount of butter used.  Really surprised to see that these bars were a great hit with my family.

I hope you will get to try these bars and enjoy them over and over again,
