Thank you Chef Ashay Dhopatkar to guest post the recipes with Foodeez Junction on the occasion of Karwa Chauth.
The saying, ‘a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’, is not true only for men! Women have discerning palates too. Karwa Chauth, a day when wives fast to pray for their husbands’ health and longevity, is the perfect time to pamper your wife’s taste buds. What’s more, if you don the chef’s apron in the kitchen it will give her a much-needed respite from toiling in the kitchen. As if that’s not all, it could be a romantic evening for the two of you when you feed her with the labours of your love.
While Karwa Chauth is a perfect day for a man to take charge of the kitchen and let the wife chill, don’t restrict exhibiting your culinary skills for special days only. Set aside at least two meals in a week when you surprise your wife and become a chef par excellence! Cooking at home should be a shared responsibility – not to just ease work or life-related pressures but also give an opportunity for couples to bond.
In fact, as I look at it, it is not even a responsibility! It is a lot of fun. There’s nothing like making a surprise dinner for your partner every once in a while to take your romance several notches higher.
I would like to share some really easy recipes that you can replicate at home to rustle up a fine-dining experience within the confines of your home.
In my earlier post, I’d discussed on how to make Falooda at home. Hope you enjoyed making it. But what’s next? What did I do after making Falooda. Just simply had it with ice cream? Noooo, not simply. I’d added more ingredients to Falooda with Ice cream and Rabri to make it delicious, so that you like it and love me more for sharing these recipes! 😀 😀
Here is another recipe of khajur. Dates or khajur is a rich source of fibre, protein and vitamins.
I love to take khajur daily in my diet because of its health benefits. We can make a variety of desserts with this fruit like khajur halwa, khajur milkshake and the khajur laddus. After the milkshake I’m sharing another Khajur recipe with you. I consider cuisines made from the dates healthy as there is no need to add sugar unlike other desserts.

With the mercury level soaring, what more could be refreshing than a chilled bowl of “Tender Coconut Pudding”.
Tender coconut water is known for its unique combination of simple sugars, minerals and electrolytes. This Coconut pudding is creamy, light and bursts with playful notes and ideal to be had during any time of the day. It is a simple Coconut Pudding recipe and can be made with very basic ingredients.
The first time I got to taste this divine pudding was at the ‘Fruit Shop On Greams Road”, from then on there was no stopping me. It has always intrigued me if I could ever create something so divine. With many trial and errors, with minor adjustments and some tweaking I managed to make this decadent pudding, which I’m sure you’ll enjoy making and eating as well!!

Gujia Recipe is easy to make; the step by step guide with the video recipe will help you in making it more easily.
Come Holi and I go into flashback mode when I used to visit my friends and neighbourhood and would get a variety of Gujia/Gujias to munch. I would wait for Holi every year just to have this sweet dish, Gujia 😀 .
The Holi celebration would begin with visiting one of my close friends, where I would munch on at least two Gujias. And then the Gujia trail would continue till my stomach bulged. I was and I am very fond of Gujia recipe… I cannot bring those “selfish” childhood moments back but can create one for my daughter 🙂 . Continue reading Holi Recipe: How to Make Gujia at Home
