Sweet Tamarind balls

This sweet brings me and my sisters memories of our childhood eating it during recess at school. I really love the sweet and acidic in it! It’s super easy to do and nowaday you can buy tamarind in bags at the supermarket. It literally takes 15 minutes to make and they you will love it! Here is our homemade recipe.

ingredients

200 grams of  Tamarind pulp

Sugar

Water

preparation

In a saucepan add the tamarind and gradually add sugar and water until dough is homogenous and the flavor is the one you wish.IMG-20150509-WA0009

More acid, less sugar. Sweeter, more sugar.

Spoon the mixture into balls and roll in sugar in another bowl.

Refrigerate. Cold tastes better!

 

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Super fluffy and moist perfect to eat with a cup of coffee, tea or by themselves, it doesn’t matter because they are so delicious and chocolaty. I advise using dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate chips the strong flavor makes a contrast to the sweetness of the dough. Enjoy!

Food: Fluffy Pancakes.

These are the most fluuuuuffy and yummy pancakes ever! Totally LOVE them and once in a while I make some for breakfast and eat them with some maple syrup.

Pancake Recipe

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 ½ Tablespoons. Baking powder
1 egg
2 ½ cups milk
1 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Mix all dry ingredients together, then add egg, milk, and vanilla. Whisk until all
Incorporated.

I use a big ladle serving spoon to scoop the mix and make my pancakes. This recipe makes at least 10 pancakes of that size.

Heat your frying pan to medium and pour the batter on a lightly oiled pan (with vegetable oil), flip when bubbles appear on the edges. Do not flatten the mixture or less it won’t grow. Once flipped it only takes a minute or two to finish cooking.
