Biscuit Pudding.

Marie Biscuits - 3 packs
Butter - 200 gms
Powdered sugar 300 gms
Cocoa powder - 1 1/2 teaspoons.
Instant coffee powder 1/2 teaspoon.
Hot water - 1/2 cup.

Mix the coffee powder in the hot water to make black coffee. Beat the butter, sugar and cocoa powder nicely and make a fluffy mixture. If you are sweet toothed can add more sugar Wink. Dip the biscuits in the coffee and arrange one layer on a plate. Nicely coat them with the butter mixture. Place another layer of coffee dipped biscuits on this . Repeat the process until all the butter mixture is used up. Keep it in the fridge for 2 hours. Once cooled , it can be cut in to slices.

Forgot to mention - the top layer is always the biscuits Wink

milk is an alternate "dipper" or even plain water - just to make the biscuit a little softer.

Spicy pavakkai:

Pavakkai (bitter gourd)  4 or 5
Onion                             1 large
Tomatoes                        1 large or 2 to 3 medium
Ginger garlic paste
Red chilies                      2 or 3
Curry leaves
Cumin seeds
Tamarind                       small lemon sized ball
Jaggery                         about 2 to 3 tablespoons
Salt and chili powder to taste
Roasted peanuts           1 cup

1. Cut the bitter gourd in quarters after removing the inside pulp, then cook for about ten minutes on the stove or 5 minutes in the microwave with  the tamarind and a pinch of turmeric powder and a little water.  Let it cool, then squeeze out all the water from the bitter gourd.

2.  Heat 1 tbsp oil in a kadai, fry the onions till translucent, add the ginger garlic paste (I omitted it), then add tomatoes till everything turns mushy.  Remove and keep in a separate container and allow it to cool.

3.  Heat another tbsp of oil, add mustard seeds and cumin seeds and allow them to splutter.  Add the curry leaves and red chilies and fry for a minute.  Then add the half cooked bitter gourd and allow it to cook some more in the kadai, keeping the kadai closed, for about five to six minutes.

4. Take the roasted peanuts, blend them with the onions - tomatoes mixture, jaggery and tamarind, using a little water, to a smooth paste.

5.  Add the peanuts masala paste to the cooked bitter gourd, add salt and chili powder to taste, and let everything cook together for about ten minutes so that the flavors get completely absorbed in the bitter gourd.  Serve hot with rotis or rice.

Sneha... here is the chocolate cake you asked. I've personally tried it twice, first time it was a complete failure but second one which i did yesterday turn out good. Got this receipe online long ago.


3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups water
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons Spice Islands pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons white vinegar


1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/3 cup baking cocoa
Dash salt
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands pure vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add water, oil, vanilla and vinegar and mix it well. Pour into a greases baking pan ( i use 13 x 9 in) and bake at 350 for 25-30mins or try with a toothpick insert center to check if its baked. The cool off completely, dont cut when its still hot. At that time you can do the frosting. Use a large bowl, beat cream chesse and butter until fluffy. Add the confectioners, sugar, cocoa, salt, milk, vanilla and mix well. Then spread over the cool cake and store in the fridge.

I didn't use egg as first time when i tried it with egg, it did not turn out good.
