I don't generally follow rules while cooking, following rules feels like you are a machine and you have a set programme to follow. When you cook from your heart there are no boundaries and no rules to follow. So its time to break free and uplift your cooking skills.
Take out all those mithai dabbas and upgrade your traditional sweets to something innovative. This Eggless Bottle gourd (Lauki) Cake with Almonds And Motichoor Laddoo is my latest obsession, which I have created with some leftover sweets and twisted into a breath taking Cake.
This cake has beautiful amalgamation of light Indian spices. All the lovely Indian mithai flavours in a cake that is healthy and alluring at the same time. Layering with motichooor laddoo at the base and top just adds depth and colour to this beautiful cake.
My Eggless Bottle gourd (Lauki) Cake with Almonds and Motichoor Laddoo is soft, moist, crunchy and it has all the goodness of Bottle gourd/Lauki and almonds which will suit everyone's palate.
