DSC_0849.JPG

You can make this tiramisu in 10 minutes or even less than that.

In my previous posts, I shared my other tiramisu and truffle tiramisu recipes. Today, I made this tasty tiramisu which does not need eggs or cream but cream cheese.

 

Also you can use honey instead of sugar which is more healthy and tasty. About biscuit for tiramisu you might use petit berrue, lady finger or sponge cake. By the way, you can also use any kind of coffee such as: French coffee, Turkish coffee, Nescafe or Espreso.

So as you see there are lots of options for making this tasty tiramisu.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 tbsp coffee
  • 1 cup boiled water
  • 200g cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp honey or white sugar
  • petit beurre biscuit/ Lady finger/ sponge cake

 

How to make it?????

Mix coffee with boiled water and set aside.

In a bowl with cream cheese, add honey and combine together. Now add 1 tbsp of coffee and mix together.

 

In this step, break some of biscuits in half. Then dip the biscuits into the coffee. They will absorbed the coffee quickly.

 

Now, simply put soaked biscuits inside the glass or cup, followed by 1 tbsp of cream cheese mixture and again another layer of soaked biscuits and finally top up with more cream cheese mixture. For the final touch, add a layer of chopped chocolate or coca powder. It’s ready to serve.

Chocolate Tortilla

I am sure all of you know Tortilla bread. This flat and thin bread is similar to one of Iranian naan breads which is called Lavash. So Today I treated my family with chocolate lavash (or chocolate tortilla). A simple but yet sooooooooooo good 😊🍣

DSC_0728.JPG

I love and love chocolate but In the following recipe I did not use any melted chocolate or Nutella. Because there are thousands of additives in the chocolate. So I just used coca powder and made a lovely mixture with Tahini and honey.

It is really amazing and tasty. Of course you can have a plain chocolate tortilla but I added slices of banana, pomegranate seeds and ….

It is super easy to prepare it, I mean in less than 10 minutes you can make such a tempting dessert for parties or family gathering.

لواش شکلاتی

نان تورتیا یا تورتیلا از نظر ظاهری خیلی شبیه به نان لواش خودمون هست ولی در سایز کوچک تر. امروز من با تورتیا یک دسر خوشمزه درست کردم . شاید خیلی هاتون بگید اه اه اه شکلات روی نون لواش یعنی چی ؟ ؟؟؟ ولی باور کنین اگر یک موقع درست کردید و خوردید می بینید واقعن خوشمزه هست. اصلن اون چیزی که فکر می کنید نیست .
طرز تهیه نان لواش شکلاتی به‌قدری ساده هست که باورتون نمیشه و در عین حال فوق العاااااااااااااااده خوشمزه.
من شخصن عاشق شکلات هستم ولی در دستور امروز بجای استفاده از شکلات یا ناتلا که برای تهیه اشون از دهها مواد افزودنی استفاده شده من از پودر کاکائو استفاده کردم و از ترکیب پودر کاکائو با ارده و عسل یک مخلوط محشر درست کردم که تا امتحان نکنید باورتون نمیشه چقدر خوشمزه میشه.
از میوه‌های مختلف می تونید برای روی نان شکلاتی استفاده کنید و حتی می تونید ساده نگهش دارید و فقط شکلات رو روی نان پخش کنید.
نکته مهم دیگه این هست که این دسر خوشمزه رو میشه فقط در عرض 5 دقیقه تهیه کرد.

مواد لازم

نان لواش

یک ق غ پودر کاکائو

سه ق غ ارده

دو ق غ عسل

یک عدد موز حلقه حلقه شده

یکی دو حبه نارنگی از وسط نصف شده

یک ق غ دانه انار

چند دانه تمشک یا توت فرنگی خرد شده

یک ق غ فندق – گردو یا پسته خرد شده

طرز تهیه

داخل یک پیاله پودر کاکائو را با عسل و ارده خوب مخلوط کنید. یک تابه را روی گاز قرار داده و گرم کنید . نان لواش را داخل تابه قرار داده و گرم کنید و سپس نان را پشت ورو کنیدتا هر دو روی نان گرم و نرم شود.

حالا نان را از تابه بیرون آورده و شکلات را روی نان پخش کنید بطوریکه کمی فاصله با لبه نان داشته باشد.

نان شکلاتی را دوباره داخل تابه با حرارت کم بگذارید. در این مرحله موزهای خردشده – تمشک – انار و پسته را روی شکلات پخش کنید.

همین. خیلی فوری و آسان. نان شکلاتی را مثل پیتزا برش داده و نوش جان کنید.

How to Make Homemade Butter

Butter made from milk of sheep, goat, cow, buffalo,…In old times, butter was luxury and used only in special occasions and events. Butter used for frying, sautéing and baking. It’s colour varies from deep yellow to pale yellow.

Few days ago I prepared my own home made cheese and the result was FAN TAS TIC. Then I told myself lets make home made butter, why not?

DSC_0202.JPG

I know everyone can buy butter but making butter at home is amazing experience. You have no idea how much is easy. I mean it’s super super easy to make beautiful butter at home and however in ancient time making butter needed time and energy but nowadays with simple device you can do that. Ancient technique and method is still used in some of villages. They use a goat skin filled with milk and rock it until formation of butter.

what you need is cream and mixer. About mixer, I used my hand holder mixer, but you can use food processor or even egg beater but this last one will require lots of energy and time !!!

DSC_0150

It takes just about 15 minutes to make your own home made butter. You can keep your butter plane or add different flavours and make it sweet or savoury. For example one of my adding flavour is sumac, because Iranian use sumac and butter for kebab and rice and is perfectly ok.

DSC_0180.JPG

Ingredients

  • 720 ml double cream or heavy cream
  • 1 cup Iced water
  • Mixer

 

For flavouring

  • one orange or lemon zest and honey
  • 1 garlic clove and paprika
  • Sumac
  • Finely chopped chives

How to make it??

Add cream to your device and beat it until the cream become stiff and turn into whipped cream ( it takes 5-6 minutes).

Now add iced cold water to the whipped cream. It helps separate butter from butter milk. Keep beating until butter milk come out and you have yellow butter solids.

In order to separate butter from butter milk, Pout the mixture into a bowl lined with a sieve or line a sieve with a clean butter muslin and set over a bowl and allow the butter milk drain into the bowl. Pick the butter in your hand and squeeze out all butter milk.

Butter is ready. Now if you like, you can add some flavour to the butter or keep it plane. I divided my butter into several pieces and added different spices, and herbs.

You can store this butter for 2 months in the fridge or freeze and store it for longer time.

طرز تهیه کره خانگی

کره از شیر گوسفندبزگاو – بوفالو و … درست میشه. در گذشته کره یک فراورده ی لبنی لوکس و تشریفاتی بوده که فقط در موقعیت و مراسم خاص بکاربرده میشد.از کره برای سرخ کردن و تفت دادن در غذا و یا در شیرینی پزی استفاده میشه.

چند روز پیش طرز تهیه پنیر خانگی رو به اشتراک گذاشتم که نتیجه ی کار عالییییییییییی بود. بخودم گفتم کره خانگی هم درست کنم.

میدونم کره را راحت میشه از سوپرمارکت و بقالی خریداری کرد ولی درست کردن کره در منزل یک تجربه فوق‌العاده هست که بی نهایت آسونه. یعنی وقتی میگم آسونه واقعن سهل و راحته. هر چند در قدیم درست کردن کره نیاز به وقت و انرژی فراوانی داشته ولی امروزه با انواع وسایلی که هست خیلی کارآسون میشه. در زمانهای قدیم شیر رو داخل پوست بز می‌ریختند و آنقدر آن را تکان میدادند که کره شکل بگیره. هر چند حتی امروزه هم در بعضی از روستاها در همه جای دنیا این تکنیک قدیمی همچنان اجرا مییشه.

برای درست کردن کره چیزهایی که احتیاج دارید شامل خامه و غذا ساز هست. خامه ی باید یا خامه سنگین هوی کری یا دابل کریم  Double creamباشه . در آمریکا خامه دوبل با نام خامه سنگین است.

در مورد غذا ساز باید بگم میشه از انواع میکسربلندرغذا و غذا ساز استفاده کنید. البته میتونید حتی با تخم مرغ همزن و به صورت دستی هم این کارو آنجام بدید ولی این کار نیاز به وقت و انرژی خیلی زیادی داره.

در کل کره در عرض 15 دقیقه آماده میشه. کره درست شده رو می تونید به صورت ساده میل کنید و یا با انواع طعم هاسبزیها وادویه ها مزه دار کنید. مثلن ما ایرانیها از سماق برای چلو کباب استفاده می کنیم. من به یکی از کره‌ها سماق اضافه کردم که خیلی عالیه و به بقیه کره طعم های متفاوت دیگری اضافه کردم.

مواد لازم

هفت صدو بیست میلی لیتر خامه سنگین و یا خامه دوبل

یک پیمانه آب یخ سرد

غذا ساز

مواد لازم طعم دهنده

پوست پرتقال رنده شده با عسل

یک حبه سیر و پودر پاپریکا

سماق

تره یا پیازچه ریز خرد شده

چگونه تهیه کنیم؟؟

خامه را داخل غذا ساز ریخته و شروع به همزدن کنید تا خامه سفت و ضخیم شده و فرم بگیرد (این کار تقریبن 6-5 دقیقه طول خواهد کشید). حالا آب یخ سرد را روی خامه ریخته و همچنان همزدن خامه را ادامه دهید . ریختن آب یخ باعث میشودتا کره از باترمیلک یا دوغاب جدابشه.

وقتی آب یخ رو ریختید همچنان به همزدن ادامه بدهید تا کره زرد رنگ کاملن از باترمیلک ( دوغاب یا دوغ کره) جدا بشود.

حالا یک توری یا دستمال نخی تمیز را داخل یک‌کاسه گذاشته و کره را داخل توری ریخته تا دوغاب یا قسمت شیری از کره جدا گردد. سپس با دست تمام کره را برداشته و بادست فشار دهید تا دوغاب از کره جدا شود.

برای طعم دادن به کره می‌توانید از نمک استفاده کرده و کره را نمکی کنید. یا پوست رنده شده پرتقال و عسل را با کره مخلوط کنید که فوق‌العاده خوشمزه میشه و برای صبحانه عالی میشه ( فکر نکنید بدمزه میشه چون دقیقن مثل استفاده از مربای پرتقال و کره هست). یکی دیگر از کره‌ها را با سماق مخلوط کردم. کره ی بعدی را با سیر و پاپریکا و بالاخره با تره مخلوط کردم.

می تونید کره را به شکل گرد و توپی و یا مثل سوسیس شکل دهید . این کره تا دو ماه در یخچال سالم باقی خواهد ماند حتی می‌توانید در فریزر برای مدت طولانی‌تری نگه دارید و وقتی مثلن ماهی یا مرغ سرخ شده درست کردید از کره با طعم سیر و پاپریکا روی آن‌ها بزنید و یا از کره سماقی برای چلوکباب و یا کره پرتقالی برای صبحانه.

Fruit Leather ( Persian Lavashak )

I remember in my childhood my aunties always used to make fruit leathers in traditional way in large trays and leave them outside in the garden or on the roof of their house in the sun for several days to dry out.

DSC_0606.JPG

You do not even need to have perfect fruit, so if there is some bruised fruits, just cut bad part and throw away and just chop them, blend them , mix them with honey or lemon juice and let them dry.

DSC_0061.JPG

Fruit leather which is called Lavashak  in Persian language is super easy to make and is a healthy snack. You can make fruit leather with kiwi, mango, apple, prunes, plum, peach,.. …

DSC_0609.JPG

If you like sweet taste would add honey or if you prefer sour taste simply add some lime/lemon juice.

DSC_0611

 

 

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Mango, chopped
  • 3 cups plums
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey

 

Instructions

Heat the oven to 120C

put chopped mango into a blender and puree it until smooth. Taste it if you want to be sweeter add 1 tbsp honey or on the contrary if you want to have sour fruit leather, add one 1-2 tbsp lime or lemon juice. pour the puréed mixture onto a lined baking sheet ( either silicone or parchment paper).

With a spatula spread it or simply shake the tray and spread the puree in the baking tray.

You need to slowly dry out the fruit leather, so be patient and Place the baking tray in the oven and let the fruit purée dry out. Typically it will take 3-4 hours to dry out and when the surface of fruit leather is smooth and not sticky, it means fruit leather is ready.

Once it is done allow to set at room temperature for 1 hour. When the fruit leather is ready, using a cuter and cut it into stripes and roll it .

They would be perfectly safe to store in the fridge for long time.
