Semolina pudding is a traditional german dish. I added a little vanilla flavoring to the pudding to make it much more tastier. How I know that vanilla makes it more tastier ? I made it twice before posting it in this blog & the first experiment with out vanilla made it a little bland. The base dish "Semolina pudding" remains the same, but you can customize the sauce with your choice of fruit to make it more interesting.

Mixed Fruit Yogurt Parfait

Yogurt Parfait
Parfait is one of my favorite desserts & it tastes delicious to me when made with yogurt. It gives me a satisfaction of eating healthy when I make it with yogurt rather than cream.

khabeesa ~ Omani Dish

Khabeesa

Khabeesa is a Oman breakfast dish served on eid days{acc. to wiki}. This dish is simple to make & delicious in taste. This is similar to the India puddings like vermicelli payasam, godhsambu payasam or the traditional kheer dish we make. You can get the flavors of cardamoms & rose water in every bite of this dish. Rose water always made me feel unpleasant when used in cooking. Thought this would be the same, but surprisingly I was happy with taste & smell of rose water in it. So below comes the recipe for Khabeesa, enjoy it.
