Biscuit Pudding:

1 big pack of Marie biscuits - plain
100 gms of unsalted butter
2 tbsp of cocoa powder
200 gms of powdered sugar.
100 ml milk

Beat the sugar, butter and cocoa powder well and
make a soft mixture. Dip the biscuits one by one
in milk and arrange on a plate - one layer. Apply
the butter cocoa mixture evenly - a thin coat.
Arrange another layer of biscuits dipped in milk
on top of this. Repeat the process of coating with
the butter mixture. Repeat until all the biscuits
and the butter is used up. Refrigerate for an hour
and it is ready for consumption. If you like the
smell and taste of cinnamon, a pinch of cinnamon

1. 12oz softened unsalted butter
2. 10oz castor sugar
3. 5 eggs
4. 1 tsp vanilla essence or 2 tsps orange juice
5. 2 tsp baking powder
6. 12 oz flour

1. In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter
    and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Beat the eggs one at a time, together with the
   vanilla essense or orange juice. Beat well between
   each addition to ensure that the egg is fully
   incorporated before adding more - this will
   prevent the mixure from curdling.
3. Sift the baking powder with flour then fold
   into the mixure to obtain a thick batter. Spoon
   the cake batter into either a non-stick or a
   greased and lined loaf tin.
4. Bake in an oven preheated to 180C or 350F for about
   45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre
   of the cake comes out clean. Turn out onto a wire
   rack to cool.

Dear Sue akka, here is the recipe for Athirasam


500 grms raw rice soaked for 1 hour
300 grms jaggery or brown sugar
tsp cardamom powder

Drain the rice in a colander. Spread it on a paper and let it dry partially.
The rice should be slightly wet. Grind the rice and sieve it once.

Add one cup of water and make the syrup. Before it comes to boil, filter it.
Boil again stirring frequently. When the syrup is bubbling, slow the fire.
To test wheather it has come to the right stage ( patham ) , drop a little
Syrup in a cup of water. You can gather the syrup into a smooth ball. (not stiff ball)
You have to test this method several times after the syrup has come to a boil.
Off the stove. Sprinkle the flour mixed with the cardamom powder, littlt by little
And mix well. The batter must not be very stiff, a bit soft. If we make a ball from it
It must be smooth, and should not break or crack.

Pour the batter into a greased bowl. Pour about 1 tbs of ghee on top of the batter
And keep. You can make the athirasam the next day. (normally I keep for 4 days)
On the day of making athirasam, you remove the batter and knead well.
Incase your batter has harden, just sprinkle a little hot water and knead well.

Heat oil in a wok on a medium flame. Pat the dough in your palm into a disc.
Make a hole in the centre, and deep fry. The athirasam should puff up when you fry.
It will be a bit crisp on the first day. The next day it will become soft.
Well with pratice only , one can make perfect athirasam.
