Treat your parents to their favorite food on Parents Day!

Today is Parents Day and if you haven't wished your parents yet then do it right away. It is the best day to express your love towards your parents and let them know how much you care for them. Your beloved STAR Plus family members are here to help you out on some last minute surprises.

If it's too late to try out these tips (Ways to make your parents feel special) then you better buck up and enter the kitchen to prepare your parents favorite meal. Our STAR Plus food experts step in to help you complete this arduous task. So, gear up to take over the kitchen for a day and treat your parents to their favorite delicacies.

On the breakfast table:

If your parents like traditional Indian food then our chirpy and bubbly Khushi suggests you go ahead and prepare her favorite Puri-Aallu Ki Bhaji for breakfast. She says "Hum hote toh yehi banate with something sweet like jalebis".  Our sweet food expert, Sooraj says, "I completely agree with Khushiji. Aaj main apni secret jalebi ki recipe aap logon ke saath share karne jaa raha hoon. All the best."

Kesar Jalebi

Ingredients: 100 gm flour, 10 gm curd, 1/4 kg ghee, 2 cups water

For Sugar Syrup: 250 g sugar, 2 cups water, strands of saffron- Bring the sugar and water to a boil, make thick syrup, add saffron strands.

Method: Add curd and two cups water to the flour and mix well.  Cover and keep aside for sometime ferment.  Heat the ghee. Put the jalebi mixture in a cloth with a hole and gently squeeze the cloth making round shaped jalebis directly in the hot ghee, fry till brown, remove in strainer and put them immediately in sugar syrup.

 If you want to do something different, then you can try the Warm Cherry Muddle or Nutella cereal with fruits and yogurt.

For Lunch and Dinner:

Akshara says, "If your parents are fond of Rajasthani food then do take them out to a good restaurant as preparing Rajasthani food can be a little tricky if you haven't tried it before. You can take them out to places like 'Rajdhani 'or 'In Village' which serve some nice Rajasthani and Guajarati food as well".

In case you decide to prepare something on your own, these special recipes right from the MasterChef kitchen should help you out. You can choose from Saffron Rice and SalanRajshani Platter, Prawn Malai Curry with Sweet Bengali Pulao, Chicken in White Gravy with Saffron PulaoChicken kolhapuri with Rice Bhakri, Stir fried greens with 5 spice homemade noodles or  LoveizzaSukoon-E-Dil

Few more exotic dishes can be found here-

If your lunch was light and there is still some scope of having something little spicy then do try Paaddi Chaat, its the best thing to have during monsoon.

For Desserts:

Remember how you used to pester your mother to give you that ice cream or bowl of gulab jamuns from the refrigerator just after finishing your dinner? Well, now is the time to surprise them. After eating these amazing delicacies why not wash it down with a cool and soothing drink. Jeevika says, "Today I will share my favourire Fresh Fruit Sorbet recipe. I am sure your parents are going to love it. It will be something different for their taste buds then the usual ice-cream or sweets. "

Fresh Fruit Sorbet:

Ingredients: 4 cups Fresh Fruit (sliced strawberries, bananas, papayas, mangoes etc.), 1 cup Fresh Lemon Juice, cup Fresh Orange Juice, Sugar (to taste), 1 pinch of Salt, Mint Sprigs (for garnishing)

Method: Take a large bowl and spread the sliced fruit in it. Cover the fruit with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, to prevent it from browning. Place the bowl in the refrigerator, until chilled. Mix together the remaining lemon juice, orange juice, sugar and salt. Stir well till the sugar is dissolved. Pour the juice in a plastic container and place it in the freezer. Remove after an hour and process it in a blender. Put it back into the freezer, until completely frozen. Serve, place some mixed fruit in a dessert style bowl. Scoop out some frozen juice over the fresh fruit and garnish with fresh mint sprigs.

We hope this will help you prepare for the day and surprise your parents. Remember that the idea is to spend as much time as possible with them on this day and make them feel special. All the best!
