Dil-e-Dastarkhan! (By Jasquerade_X) (Thanked: 13 times)

First and foremost,

Thank you to our lovely Admins for having this section in myShare as MeD compromises of many members from around the world - this gives us a great opportunity to learn different cuisines.

Personally, I only cook under two conditions when I am in the mood to make something or when I have no choice but to - this myview will consist of the recipes that I have tried myself, I do not own them but I love to experiment so when I share a recipe which is mine, I will make a note of that in the beginning.

I will begin with what I famous in the family for my so called "signature" dish which is actually a sweet dish that I had found a couple of years ago in the month of Ramadan and introduced it to the family. This was the first sweet dish I had independently made.

We're all use to Sooji ka Halwa, Gajar ka Halwa etc but I found this different, easy and interesting.

The quantity of ingredients is dependant on how many people you wish to serve.

It was originally called "Anday aur Doubleroti ka Halwa," I found that to be boring so I for myself call it...

"Halwa-e-Jazbaat!" As after eating it, it makes you feel so alive and good!

*Credit for this recipe goes to its original owner*


Cuisine: Pakistani/Indian

Serves: 4-6 people

Time spent making: 40 minutes


*3 Eggs

*1 1/2 Cup of Milk

*3/4 Cup Oil

*1/2 Cup Sugar

*5-8 Cardamon (Ilaichi)

*4 slices of Bread


* Break the slices of bread into little pieces, add milk and sugar, stirring until the mixture has dissolved in the utensil which you are using to make this.

* Add the oil, eggs and cardamom.

* Now switch on the gas and cook on a medium flame for about 30 - 40 minutes, stirring continously to make sure it doesn't burn.

* The oil will begin to collect on the sides which you can easily drain.

* When light brown, place into your serving dish and decorate as you wish (I garnish with crushed almonds).

It is suggested that this sweet dish is best served warm but I had once tried it cold and it still tasted delicious.

Until next time..
