Happy Sankranti ! Mishti Doi recipe

This is what we Biharis eat on Sankranti -
Dahi Chura - also known as Poha.
I made mishti doi and this is what I did -
1 cup plain yogurt
1 can evaporated milk
1/2 can condensed milk

I thoroughly mixed the three. I did not add any cardamom, you can if you like to. I kept the bowl in which I was setting the yogurt in the oven with the light on. I wish I had warmed it up a little as the consistency was not so good.

We also eat khichdi and bachkas on Sankranti for dinner, the pic below shows what we ate! Sorry for the bad pic :-)

Dinner menu was -
Aloo matar
Aloo gobhi
Fuloris / bachkas / pakoras
Sakkara pongal

Happy Sankranti !!

Banana cake with chocolate frosting

I baked this banana cake for New Year celebrations at home. I followed one of my favorite blog recipes-

Some changes that I made are-
I used olive oil instead of butter.
I used milk and vinegar mixture instead of buttermilk.
I halved the sugar as it felt like too much sweetness than we could handle.

The cake was a super hit at home and all of us really loved it.

Frosting recipe is impromptu -
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa

Melt the butter and whisk in the sugar and cocoa and pour it over the cake. I did this while my cake was still warm as we wanted a softer frosting. That's it!
