This is one dish that I enjoyed making.
Why? My daughters helped me, one of the few rare times when they came in willingly and helped me happily. This was my best Valentine gift from them both. Thanks Kiddos! I love you “gais” (in case you want to misunderstand I am talking about the cow)J.
This one is a Tarla Dalal recipe something that I had bookmarked long long ago. Need I say more?
By the way the recipe is doubled and it said 1 cup whipped cream I measured 2 cups of cream and then whipped it so I ended up with all this delicious mousse which was lovingly filled in glasses by the girls. Most of the pics are by the younger kid. & hence I did not delete any of the pictures and you have to dekho all of them!!
Let’s get down to it then.
