One more to the List ! Check out our Dessert with a Twist.


Pumpkin with a Twist

A twist is something which we all love. With our usual monotonous life, a twist here and a tweak there make things more interesting. Twists with food are something which everyone now is interested in, and when it comes to desserts the opportunities are just boundless. With a plethora of options now easily available we often get into this imagination mode. We start mixing and matching the best from 2 or more desserts and make one – and that one, is the One.

One such instance is when we tried an unusual kheer at my mother’s house. She was in one of her witty moods and played the guessing game with us. We took spoon and then bowl full of it but were unable to guess what the kheer was made of. Or was it the sheer taste of it which made us asking for more and we totally forgot that we were actually playing a guessing game.

Another favorite amongst the dessert variant is the good old custard. Plain and simple but creamy smooth textured custard can never ever fail to uplift the worst of moods.

What happens when there is an amalgamation of these 2 terrific sweets? That is exactly what we experimented on and it was a quite a delectable success.

So here is how it goes:


  1. Red pumpkin
    2. Milk
    3. Mava
    4. Sugar
    5. Custard Powder
    6. Kiwi crush / Blueberry Crush



Assemble all the ingredients


Pressure cook the Pumpkin with some milk


Add some sugar and set aside to grind


Make the custard according to the pack instructions



Pour them in a glass and let them set (refrigerate)


Now grind the pumpkin, Milk & Sugar into a paste


Add the Mawa (Thickened dry milk) to make the paste thick


Pour the contents into a Icing Bag and refrigerate for sometime


With the custard set, Pour the crush of your choice


Top it up with the Pumpkin Mawa Paste

Humble but the tasties bowl of breakfast ever. This Onion Upma with a drizzle of Ghee and a big dollop of Tomato Pickle was our hearty breakfast today. Especially with the rains, this steaming upma, was the perfect kick start to the week.
Food made with love is always much tastier than normal. When there's a mum's love involved it becomes 100 fold better. Here's a tribute to Chef Deepa Suhas Awchat of @goa_portuguesa - The brain behind a range of authentic Goan Spice Mix. We had the Chicken Xacutti made by @johann__dsilva using the spice mix and it was delicious. Can't wait to try the rest of the range. These are available at the restaurant and on Amazon.
With so many cakes doing the rounds on #instagram and us in a #nomicrowave phase we got to thinking really hard and then found a recipe via @cooking.shooking .. This 3 ingredient Cake of Bourbon Biscuit, Milk and Eno ended up in this super soft and moist Chocolate Cake. Try it and trust us , you'll love it. Just grind the bourbon biscuit with the cream inside. That will give it the rich flavour. Mix in the milk well without any lumps. Keep the cooker ready with boiling water and a stand high enough for the water not to seep in. Towards the end just mix in the eno and stir in one direction only. Pour it in the pan and steam for 20 min on low. Tada!!!
We believe in having atleast one meal which is healthy.....CORRECTION....atleast one meal which looks healthy 😉🤔. Our lunch yesterday was this delicious homemade sub with potato wedges overloaded with healthy veggies like capsicum, onion & tomatoes followed by everything else 😉
Don't we all love fancy looking food? There are also times when certain dishes might not look the best but they are bang on when it comes to taste. This rustic Palak Paneer and kadak Butter Roti was our Mumbai Goa highway lunch.
Friday Brunch Scenes at Home ! Tomato Rice, Paneer Dhaniya, Raita and Spicy Banana Chips. 🤗✋ Yes Please !!
Spending almost 2 hour's starting from 12, noon trying to get this PERFECT SHOT IN A RESORT - PRICELESS. 👍 And clicking this shot within the first 5 minutes of our visit ? That's #masterclass ✋ And that's what we got when we went to @andoresresortandspa in #GOA - a beautifully designed property in the heart of the city at #calangute. This calm and serene resort has a lot of greenery to boast of. We had a lovely time walking around and exploring the property followed by a delicious buffet.
There is something so comforting about a bowl of Khow Suey. This delicious bowl of comfort was part of the @lemeridiengoa Sunday Brunch. A brunch of a kind, which lets you sit back & relax while the team attend to all your needs, on your table, from the well curated SET MENU BUFFET. We've tried it and loved it, now it's your turn.
The Perfect Thali ! Can't even explain how good and sinful the Khichda and The Khoja Gosht Biryani at @vivantabytajpanaji Khoja Food Festival tasted. 😍❤
"Hello Fraands Paan Kha Lo" 😉🤣😂😁 Had these delicious and juicy 'Meetha Paans' after our Huge South Indian Meal @shantieshakthirestaurant weekends couldn't be more perfect.
