Beetroot, Cucumber, Tomato, Carrot & Raw Mango Salad ~ Quick Summer Salad Ideas

I love to experiment with Salads and find new ways to mix different vegetables, fruits & sprouts in delicious yet healthy Salads. This Beetroot, Cucumber, Carrot & Raw Mango Salad was the result of a brainwave one afternoon, when I thought to use my raw mango lying in the freezer for long. I thought why not use this instead of lemon juice as a garnish. The result was a tangy, crunchy and colorful salad. And as we all know, different colors in a meal mean more vitamins & minerals covered!!

Shahi Tukda (Double ka Meetha) ~ Easy Dessert Recipe

What do you do when absent mindedly boiling half a litre milk for almost an hour? In most cases, would throw it.But not my husband.  He made Shahi Tukda out of it! It so happened that the husband was at home (while I was at work) and happened to over boil the milk, while being absent minded watching TV.  The moment he saw the reduced milk, he thought of the amazing Shahi tukda his mum used to make during childhood with the naturally reduced milk and made up his mind to treat with it (how sweet!!). 
Shahi Tukda (also called Double ka Meetha) is simply reduced milk (rabri)+sugar+bread, but it comes together so beautifully to make an awesome divine dessert. I simply loved it and for the 1st time did not get angry on the husband for leaving milk to boil absent mindedly!!
