VEGAN AVOCADO - CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

Both Chocolates and Avocados are sought after for their health benefits. Combining these two can result in an aura of healthy eating and that is what I created, precisely. Chocolates are for an antioxidant kick and Avocados for its Vitamin and good fat content (Note that these are the only fruits that offer a good serving of Monounsaturated fatty acids). 
No whipping cream, No condensed milk, No refined sugar. Instead, I went about adding Maple syrup for its low calorie count as opposed to Honey and that makes it Vegan. It is also an excellent make ahead dessert that can be blend in no time.

Every spoonful was truly blissful. You must make it to believe it. Go on now.....

GODHUMAI RAVAI APPAM - BROKEN WHEAT APPAMS -Sweet version

Collecting Food props and kitchen equipment is an insatiable activity specially for food bloggers. I am no different. Despite being  slow (yet steady) in posting recipes, I have never missed a chance to collect food props, equipment and gadgets whenever possible. I have been blogging for four and a half years now and I have quite a decent collection of  props that of which I have not yet put to use many and hope to do so one at a time in the future. Of all the props that I have, I am specially attached to the copper (I have a few more apart from the one seen in the picture) and my brass props that I tend to use frequently for  recipes with a traditional touch. It adds a lot of value during presentation and also can do as stand alone props.
