- Khajoor ShrikhandCook time 0 mins29 Likes
Shrikhand is an all time favourite dessert in Gujarat. The simple blend of hung yogurt and sugar spiked with some nuts and aromatics never fails to please the tastebuds. Shrikhand is an absolute must during the summers, a season when we up the yogurt intake to escape the side effects of extreme heat. The Khajoor Shrikhand is a simple, refreshing and healthy dessert to make. The amount of added sugar can be curtailed to a great extent. I am not required to add any sugar in the Khajoor Shrikhand I make. The key is to use very thick chakka and good quality dates. The moist and sweet the dates are the better it is for the Shrikhand. Try to blend the mix with a balloon whisk so as to maintain the tightness of the yogurt. Chill the Shrikhand ( 5 hours preferred) very well before serving. It makes an ideal dessert for those managing weight or control sugar.

- Khubani ka MeethaCook time 40 mins13 Likes
Khubani ka Meetha or Qubani ka Meetha is a traditional Hyderabadi sweet delicacy made from dried apricots. Khubani is an urdu term for apricots. So khubani ka meetha means apricot halwa or sweet made from apricots. This is a very easy-to-make dessert. You just need to be a little bit patient to enjoy this delectable dessert. Apricots are soaked in water overnight. The almonds that are derived from its seeds are added in this dessert for crunchiness. You can either garnish the dessert with them or add them while preparing the halwa. Traditionally, khubani ka meetha is served with sweet cream or with thick custard.

- Chennapoda ,The Indian CheesecakeCook time 60 mins13 Likes
How many of us aware of this fact that the only Indian Cheesecake is made in Odisha! It’s not brought by any Roman from Greece rather a person named Sudarshan Sahu, the owner of a confectionery from Nayagad invented with his own Food-skills. It all happened when he was experimenting with the left-over Chenna mixing it with some sugar and spices. He left it in an Earthen-stove over-night that was still warm from earlier use. The next day, he was pleasantly surprised to find out what a scrumptious dessert he had created. “Chenna” is nothing but a close cousin to Ricotta Cheese.
- Carrot Payasam or Gajar KheerCook time 15 mins11 Likes
There are a lot of variation in the method of preparation. I have used custard powder to give a thickness in the payasam. Milkmaid can be used too while preparing. This recipe is quite similar to the most famous Indian dessert 'gajar halwa' but with a bit difference.
