Today I am going to a memorial reading😢 so I will eat everything they offer except beef. Looking fwd to sirni 😔

I don't care much for chocolate cake but this is a good recipe, this I can handle. Spelt flour could be used instead of regular flour.

CHOCOLATE BEET BUNDT CAKE

1 1/3 cups

Natural Cane Sugar

1 cup

Butter

1 ½

Medium Beets

½ cup

Beet Juice (water left from steaming)

3

Eggs

3 oz.

Unsweetened Chocolate

2 cups

Spelt Flour

1 ½ Teaspoons

Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon

Sea Salt

1 Teaspoon

Vanilla Essence



Steam or boil beets until soft.  Reserve ½ cup of the water (beet juice).

Puree cooked beets in a food processor using ½ cup of beet juice.

Melt chocolate in a double boiler on a low to medium heat.

Cream butter and sugar together.

Add vanilla, melted chocolate and pureed beets.

Mix until smooth and add the eggs one at a time.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt together and

add to the Beet mixture, beat until smooth.

Grease and flour a bundt pan. (or double layer 9 inch, or approx 12 cupcakes)

Pour batter into pan.

Bake at 300 degrees for 40 – 45 minutes.  If using 9 inch or making cupcakes, reduce baking time to 20 – 25 minutes.

Experiment!!  Add ½ cup of chocolate chips, or chopped nuts, dried fruits, or even fresh pitted cherries.

To finish this Bundt Cake off, we top it with a Glaze.

GLAZE

½ cup

Whipping cream or full fat coconut milk

4 oz.

Semi-sweet chocolate

2 Tablespoons

Butter or coconut oil

Chop the chocolate and place in a bowl.  Put the whipping cream and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil over a medium heat.  Watch it carefully and don’t let it boil over.  Pour the cream and butter over the chocolate and let it sit until the chocolate is melted.  Stir it all together until it is smooth.

Drizzle Glaze over cooled cake and let it set.  ENJOY!!

Lots of cooking today.....

Dhall; rice; bhagee (spinach + kale + bok-choi) with pieces of green mango; 'fry' karaila; sardines with lots of onion/garlic/tomatee.

Hopefully, will have enough leftovas for the rest of the week. Plus I have some bigan/chicken curry in fridge and some stew chicken in freezer.

duck curry, rice and salad for lunch

I like salad for lunch (no curry/rice though)

Today, I chopped up in small pieces - cucumber, grape tomatoes, radishes, green/yellow/red peppers, red onion, baby spinach and avocado. Added a dash of balsamic vinegar/extra virgin olive oil/sprinkle of salt.

The best lunch!!!

Hubby had his with a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich made with whole-grain flax bread.

Channa n aloo curry......yummm.  one of my fave.

Did you have any goja for Diwali?

I have been craving this for 46 years!!!

No idea how to make it and I don't want to learn.....I want someone to make it for me!!

Is hassar cooked as any other fish? I had that once and did not care for it.

I only like Hassah if it’s fried before currying and there must be other stuff like saijan, ochro, potato or eddo etc cooked with it so that I can be full after pulling and sucking all that bone-shell…

no gojah this way.  I have not had that for few yrs.  my mom used to make the best but these days she doesn’t manage.
I have not made a lot of things since hubby passed away…I was so spoilt by him when it came to cooking special stuff ….he always helped or I didn’t make things like gojah or butter parsad.

46 years is a long time to crave a food…
