Cold coffee

Everybody loves coffee and with summer setting in, moving from hot drinks that warm our hands to cold drinks that refresh us,  this instant chiller is a winner! 
Made with ice cream and coffee, this drink is something you can whip up in minutes and enjoy on a lovely summer evening.

Chicken Hariyali

As the name suggests, this chicken is green. The reason being the main ingredient-coriander or cilantro.
Chicken hariyali can be made gravy style or as a starter. The starter is usually called chicken hariyali kebabs and are made with boneless chicken on skewers. I have made the kebab style as well, but with boned chicken pieces instead. I always feel that boned chicken tastes better than boneless chicken.

Wholemeal fruit cake (with chia seeds)

I have used a very basic sponge cake recipe to make this melt in the mouth fruit cake. I have however, replaced all purpose flour with whole wheat flour and white sugar with brown sugar. The addition of 1 cup of fresh strawberries made it a lovely fruit cake. You can add any fresh or dry fruit of your choice.

The addition of chia seeds is optional. I had them stocked up so I used 1tbsp of whole chia seeds in the recipe.
