Moong Dal Ka Laddu~~ Ganesh Chaturthi Special!!!

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi everyone!!!

Here I come with another recipe on the eve of Ganesh Puja...

Moong dal(green gram lentils) are rich in proteins and when they are made into laddus they form the tastiest sweet ever.

This is another quick and easy recipe which you can try making during any puja specially during Diwali!!!

Arranging time :10 mins.
Cooking Time : 10-15 mins
Serves: 5-6 people

You will be needing:

  1. Moong Dal(200gms)
  2. Sugar(200gms)
  3. Green Cardamom(25 gms)
  4. Ghee(4-5 table spoon)
To begin with :

  • Roast the moong dal in a non stick kadhai, make sure it doesn't turn brown.
  • Grind the sugar in the grinder and keep it aside.
  • Grind the moong dal in the grinder and keep it aside
  • Grind the green cardamom into fine powder.
Now lets start with the cooking:
  • In the Kadhai put 5 table spoon of ghee and let it melt.
  • Put the powdered moong dal  and sugar in the kadhai and stir continuously. Make sure it does not form a lump. 
  • When the mixture starts to solidify a little and start coming the middle , you know that it is ready to be taken off from the oven.
  • Now take a plate and smear it with ghee.
  • Put the entire mixture on the plate.
Its time to give it some shape...!!!

Some readers might just want to make a barfee with this moong dal so they can flatten the mixture on the plate and cut it into square pieces. But, since i made this on the day of Ganesh Puja I made laddu out of it and gave it round shape with my hands.

But be careful!! This mixture is extremely hot and can burn your fingers and palm while giving round shape to it!!

Tips: You can moisten your hand with water or ghee before making the laddu. It will prevent the mixture from sticking to it hands,you will feel less heat also you can make perfect round laddus.

My mom doesn't like nuts hence I kept it simple but you can also put nuts in it and let me know how it tasted!!! :)

The Near Far

Around a point fixed Near and Far they move. We measure the distance, Gather all that proves, What is far and how much they have moved. We can see the far but the near stays out of sight. And we never use our senses, We feel close to sun's beaming light. Forgetting that its unreachable.
But the one which we cannot see One that we cannot perceive. Are not very far  Even though it seems.

How Infallible is the New L'oreal Infallible 24hrs Stay Fresh Foundation?!!!

I am not a foundation person and since I have a very oily skin , I don't even have the liability to use any product on my skin.

I never had any plan to buy this product but still i ended up buying this last week just to try this Infallible range of products..
I watched videos of L'oreal Infallible 24Hr Pro-Matte foundation and was pretty impressed with its performance, but unfortunately that is not available in Kolkata.. maybe i need to search a little more.  Basically i had that product in mind when i bought this 24 Hr Stay Fresh foundation.
Foundation Vis-a-Vis: The most important thing you need to focus on while choosing your foundation is "The Shade". Mostly foundation from other brands have shades with pink undertone. And for me its little difficult to find my perfect shade cause mine is little yellowish.  This Infallible range of foundation have yellowish undertone and the shade 235 suited me well... had the SA wouldn't have insisted me ,i would have taken …
