Candied orange peel

Dried orange peel toasted and then coated with a bit of sugar makes a good mouth freshener.

Cut the peel in strips, remove pith, dry the orange peel in the sun.
Toast them in a non stick pan.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and toast a bit more.
Let cool, store in airtight container.

Vitamin C powerhouse and makes your mouth smell good too :)
Try making a similar one with ginger.

Ras puas

It is Holi and we are in Bangalore, missing the usual festivity in Bihar. No better way to compensate and celebrate with delish food :)

Also put the paniyarams pan to good use.

The batter for ras pua is similar to malpua. Check recipe here I used whole wheat instead of maida.

No guilt in enjoying these light and sweet raspuas!!
