Steamed Orange Cup Sandesh infused with Orange Jam




Since Oranges are rich in Vitamin C and very good for keeping  the cold away in the winters... here is a healthy Bengali sweet dish fusion with oranges and cottage cheese.. to celebrate any moment of your day. Sandesh is a Bengali sweet dish made from cottage cheese... to which I have added home made Orange Jam to enhance the flavour of the orange. 


Ingredients 

5 medium size Oranges cut into halves

250 grams Paneer / Cottage Cheese / Chenna

1/2  cup Sugar

Pinch of Salt

1/3 cup Condense Milk 

Method 

- Using a citrus juicer, remove the juice from the oranges, without damaging the orange peel cups.. incase citrus juicer is not available, then remove the orange segments from the orange peel cups and press the segments through a strainer to procure the juice, discard the seeds.. we should get around 2 cups of orange juice. Gently remove the orange pith from the orange cups. Blanch the orange cups in hot water to remove the bitterness from the skin. 

- Take a pot, add a cup of orange juice, sugar and salt, let the juice reduce on a low flame, stirring it occasionally until the juice reduces and thickens. Switch off the flame. Keep it aside. Once cool, the orange jam will thicken further. 

- Take a blender, add the cottage cheese, condensed milk and the remaining cup of orange juice. Blend all the ingredients together into a smooth paste in a blender. 

- Take a steamer, add water into the steamer, set the steamer plate,  arrange the orange peel cups on the plate. Pour the liquid into the orange cups. Add a tsp of the orange jam into each of the orange cups. Steam the orange cups sandesh for 15 minutes. 

- Remove the steamed orange cup sandesh from the steamer the steamer and cool them a bit, then cool the orange cup sandesh in the fridge, before serving  garnish the orange cups with orange jam, dried orange peel and some mint leaves.

-  This portion gives 10 Steamed Orange Cup Sandesh.

Putu Ayu Ketan Hitam (Black Glutinous Rice and Coconut Steamed Cake)


It's an Indonesian steamed cake recipe. It's can be served as snacks and believe me it is moist, healthy and super tasty.
I have followed Anna dina's blog for this recipe, but I have reduced the quantity of the ingredients to half and recreated the recipe as per my convenience.
The Black Rice was one of the ingredient that I had received as prize from Original Indian Table in collaboration with Commeat. I have plated it on a Tapas plate which again was one of the prizes I had received from Le Creuset...

I made the rice flour at home. I took 125 grams of rice and ground it. Then sieved it. I have used dried grated coconut, but the fresh coconut is more preferred.
Black Rice known as forbidden rice, it is less popular than the other rice varieties, it is also an ancient grain that has been eaten in Asia for thousands of year. It has a powerful disease-fighting antioxidants, and it also contains dietary fiber, anti-inflammatory properties, and has the ability to help stop the development of diabetes, cancer, heart disease and even weight gain.

For the Coconut Layer
Ingredients
50 grams grated Coconut
3 drops of Vanilla Essence
A Pinch of Salt
1 Pandan Leaf

Methods
Add the coconut, salt, vanilla essence and pandan leaf into the bowl. Mix the ingredients and steam it for 2 minutes. Let it cool. Discard the leaf and keep it aside.

For the Cake
Ingredients
120 grams of Black Glutinous Rice Flour
60 grams Caster Sugar as per the sweetness required
A Pinch of Salt
1 Large Egg
100 ml Coconut milk
1 Pandan Leaf
Oil for greasing

Method
Boil coconut milk with pandan leaf. Let it cool then remove the leaf from the coconut milk. Boil a liter of water in a pot. Grease the putu ayu moulds or mini bundt moulds with oil. Put 2 tsp of the coconut into the mould. Press the grated coconuts well until it sets. Keep the mould aside.
Remove the pot of hot water from the flame. Take another bowl which can fit onto the pot. Add the egg, sugar and salt into the bowl. Beat on low speed until the sugar dissolves. Increase the speed of the beater and  beat until the batter becomes thick and pale. Add the flour in the batter in batches. Beat it further till the flour has mixed well. Now gradually add the coconut milk little at a time and continue to beat the batter until the ingredients are well incorporated.
Fill the moulds with the batter until full till the edge, steam it for 15 minutes or till the cake is done. Let the cake cool down before remove it from the moulds.
