WATERMELON AND KIWI POPSICLES

Ingredients:
5 cups watermelon, puréed
5 medium kiwis, peeled and sliced

Method:
Place all the watermelon in the blender and process until smooth. Place kiwi slices in the mold and fill popsicles well with the watermelon juice. Insert popsicles stick and let it freeze until solid.
If the watermelon is not at its peak and lacking some sweetness, add powdered sugar at the time until preferred sweetness is achieved.

 Notes:
Just be creative and make as many different popsicles as you can.
We added grated coconut to watermelon juice and then put it for freezing.
You can add chopped pieces of watermelon/ kiwi.

Kiwi popsicles

Ingredients:
6 Kiwi, peeled and puréed
1/2 cup Coconut water
Sugar as per requirement

Method:
Purée the kiwis in a blender and add the coconut water to get the desired consistency. Do not make it too watery.
Add powdered sugar as per the taste.
Fill the molds with the purée and refrigerate it overnight.

Notes:
You can also add chopped kiwis/ watermelon to the kiwi purée.

YOGHURT CHOCO CHIP POPSICLES

Ingredients:
4 cup yoghurt ( vanilla, coffee)
Mini choco chips

Method:
Divide the yogurt among 8 5 ounce molds. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Cover each mold with a piece of foil, sealing the edges. Make a small slit in the centre of the foil and insert a wooden freezer pop stick. Freeze for at least 8 hours and upto 3 days. Put the mold under running water to take out the popsicle.

Notes:
To make chocolate hazelnut yogurt, stir Nutella into vanilla yogurt.
Partially fill the mold with one type of yogurt and freeze for 30 mins. Add additional layer freezing for 30 mins each.

With that we will bid adieu until next time!! Lots of preparations and celebration for the birthday!! Lots of love and good health and a long life to our cutest princess Nyra!! Wish her all the luck in life!!

Cheers!!!

Vanilla Mug Cake – Happy Father’s Day

He is brave, he is funny 

yet wise 

In his simplicity 

His honesty lies 

He is inspiring, he is humble

Corrects you when you fumble 

He guides you always

wants you to rise 

He acts all cool 

But carefully spies 

Spies to keep you on the right way

He may get troubled to keep you happy

But he wouldn’t ever say

Wants you to be smart and selfless 

He is the one 

Who takes you out of the mess 😉

He is a friend he is a guide 

It’s on his strong shoulders 

You would have had the best horse ride 😉

He considers responsibilities before his will 

His duties before his dreams 

He will not let go of his smile

No matter how tired he seems 

He is courageous but watchful 

Watchful so that you learn

Wisdom is what 

He wants you to earn 

He treats his daughter like a princess 

His son like a star 

He holds the family together 

And doesn’t let go anyone far

He is one- of -a-kind

Depth of his love is not easy to find 

He is our hero our Dad

Who truly rules our heart and mind 🙂

How’s it going foodies? We know the heat the killing but we never give up food :). That’s why we are “Missfoodies”. Our today’s blog is specially for the lovely fathers out there!! As I had mentioned in my last blog our latest addition (Parul’s daughter- our little Miss foodie) to the missfoodies family is turning 9 months and it’s her 1st Father’s Day! Wow!! That calls for a celebration, what say peeps!! It surely does. The relation between daughters and fathers is truly special and only daughters can make it out of this world. :). So you guessed it right. To make this day special we have a super easy cake recipe which even fathers can make for their kids and vice versa. :). But we don’t even want our fathers to be binge eating and get into that indulgence!! Well to satisfy their sweet tooth but to keep the portion size in check, we made this yummy and easy Vanilla Mug Cake! This little cake is moist, delicious and just perfect to satisfy those sweet jitters!!

You can top it up with just anything that you feel like. Be it gems, chocolate shavings, icing. It can be really creative and according to your wish! So go ahead scratch your brain make that best cake. All is takes it is just 90 seconds in the microwave and you will have a little mug o’ heaven :). One of the most important tips I can offer if you’re going to make this cake is to make sure that your mug is at least 14 ounces or it may “bubble” over while baking in the microwave. Watch that mug closely!! If you use a big enough mug there’s nothing to worry about. Our cake took up about 3/4 of the cup, which was perfect. So try on this easy peasy and the quickest cake recipe we have ever tried. And trust me it just comes out perfect. We couldn’t believe ourselves until we took the first bite! It was marvellous!

We did not add the icing because it was sweet enough without it but you can always pour some of it to make it more richer and creamier! So if you haven’t planned for ur daddy as yet, then go ahead and surprise him with this simple and quicky recipe! We leave you with the beautiful poem as you must have seen above written by Parul from our Princess’s side for her ‘My daddy strongest’.

So dont wait and start to bake 🙂 Have a great day!!!

Cheers!!!

NOTE – This goes great with almond flakes. You can add almonds as told in the procedure OR if you wish the almonds to show up on your cake put them after half time. Once you see the cake has risen to a good level open the oven and quickly spread the almonds over the cake. But make sure you do not take too long in the process.

This easy and delicious cake is always a hit. Away from usual chocolate, this is light fluffy n moist. Goes superb at you tea time invites or otherwise. Try it for sure because we bet you will love it .

Review: Delhi Club House

Hi friends. The winters finally seem to hit Delhi. Though yet not so strongly but we are happy to get some warm clothes out at last. Oh God ! This weather calls for some food. Our life revolves around just food food and food. What to do. We are born to eat and have to keep up to our name: Miss foodies 😉

So as we talked of the sangam courtyard which has come up again quiet well, we continue to do so today as well. We are actually enjoying visiting this side more as we believe somewhere it is still away from all the crowd. Its getting talked about but thankfully not getting as crowded for now and we wish it remains the same.

6

So we introduce you people to Delhi club House today. This one is yet again by none other than Marut Sikka. It is in the lime light for this very own reason. After success of his previous food magic places he seems to be playing quiet well yet again. Comfort food with dallops of nostalgia in an ambience inspired by look of grand old club with colonial roots is a complete win win. The good choice of music helps enhancing your experience.

7

What we had: The menu is limited but quiet interesting with some great food. As winters hitting, specially the chilly evenings made us order some hot tomato and red pepper soup. Its surely creamy but satiating and as the name suggests the pepper surely hits your throat. We loved it.

9

Then came the rawa cutlet (Madras club). The menu is actually interesting with the highlights of variations. These were warm and crunchy served with coconut and red chutney. The tinch of rye (indian spice) adds to the flavour.

8

Then came the yam galouti kebab. Simply rich and delicious melting in the mouth. Must order for a happy palate. Then we ordered the veg kakori (Mahomed bagh club) These mini ones with white sesame on the outside are soft inside.

10

11

For the mains we ordered Khorma biryani from Nizam club. It was as satiating as it looks. We relished it thoroughly. Along came the Amritsari kulcha, channa (Amritsar Club). This was divine too. Hot and spiced channas were too good to resist.

12

Do we recommend : yes absolutely. The place has great atmosphere with club classic food specially for a weekend dinner. The place is lively with great music. The prices are decent for the portions and satiating meals. If you dine in late you will surely enjoy moving yourself a bit with the music and lively ambience. The service may take little while but you can always enjoy chatting until then. The limited menu may make you think of visiting again but we feel theres still something about the place for we are surely visiting back soon.
