Happy Valentine with Chocolate Strawberry Rose Cupcake...

Happy Valentine with Chocolate Strawberry Rose Cupcake...
Humorous Anniversary...❤️❤️
It was a small funny incident which happened 2 years back on my anniversary day, I had just woken up from my sleep, I saw my husband walking in side the room towards me, trying to tell me some thing and he was very excited.  I was in my own world. There was a big bunch in his hand which I though was a big bunch of roses, I very happily went to take it from in his hand and was wondering that in 18 years of our married life he never got me any surprise gifts, how come today he got roses that too early in the morning... I became very... very happy.  But no, it was not roses,  it was a big bunch of fenugreek leaves and spring onions which he had picked up on the way back after dropping our daughter to school. He wanted me to make Meethi Aloo for lunch... He loves to shop for vegetables and he loves to eat... So for Valentine's Day Strawberry roses for him...

Coconut Jelly Hearts

Enjoy this delicious dessert on this valentines day with your loved ones 💕💕💕
For the colour  layer
1 pandan leaf knotted 
1 tbsp agar agar powde
2 1/2 cups water
200 grams  white sugar
Colour of your choice
For the coconut  layer
1 tbsp agar agar powder
1 cup water
2 cups coconut cream
1/2 cup condensed milk
1 pandan leaf knotted
1 Pinch salt
To make the colour layer place the agar agar powder and water in a small  pot and heat until agar agar is completely dissolved. Add the sugar and the pandan leaf and cook until dissolved, do not boil. Take the pandan leaf out. To make the colour layer of your choice  separate the sugar syrup in to different bowls or as many bowls you want to add colours of your choice. Keep the bowls in a tray of hot water as the sugar syrup should not cool completely.  Next, make the coconut  layer. Place the agar agar powder in a small pot and cook until the agar agar has completely dissolved. Add the condensed milk, coconut cream, pandan leaves and salt stir till all the ingredients have incorporated well. Strain out the liquid  and place the mixture in a small bowl sitting in a bowl of hot water. You do not want to let the mixture cool off. While the two batches of layers are still warm, take heart shape silicon mould and  place 2 tablespoons of the coconut cream layer in the silicon mould. Let the layer almost set, then place 2 tablespoons of the colour sugar syrup layer in the cups. Repeat this process until all cups are full.  Let the jellies set completely. To serve, remove the jellies from the mould and enjoy.
