MEETHE MAI GULABI SANDESH OR NAMKEEN MAI BATATA VADA,...

When i first heard about flower power theme of Jhiva hosted by Rachna i was not sure whether i will participate or not,.cause couldnt relate flowers with cooking,..then i saw Vanis post of HIBISCUS MILK and got inspired to try my luck with flowers,.good theme RACHNA FLOWERS are really powerful and addition of flowers if used properly will surely enhance the taste....thats what i did yesterday...i had a new pack of dried french rose lying in my store from quiet a long time ,..yesterday finally took it out and tried my luck with them,,.as soon as i opened the packet..i was transformed somewhere else,..the aroma of dried french roses was like smell therapy for me,..felt so good,..,mmm..its cant be described in words,..sorry i went somewhere else,..i am back..ya with the french roses finally out of the pack,..i prepared home made cottage cheese...mashed it properly,..kept aside ,in a grinder i added petals of about eight french roses two cardamom and four tablespoon of sugar,..and grounded everything together,.i mixed this mixture in the mashed cottage cheese ,..and mashed again till everything blended together..i tried giving shapes of petals,..but it didnt come that well,..i topped the sandesh with petals of the dried flowers,..and kept in fridge for 10 minutes,
..was scared how the sweet would taste,,,asked hubby ,he liked a lot,..and ya even i liked it too,..since i prepared sweet with rose petals and in the same way as i prepare sandesh i named the sweet GULABI SANDESH and they go to the flower power event hosted by Rachna. and to ORIGINAL RECIPE EVENT Photobucket
HOSTED BY LORE OF CULINARTY
thanks a lot Rachna for hosting this lovely event or i would have never tried the dried french roses
