  5. Diwali Party

    Dear All Diwali is just couple of months away. I need suggestions about menu for Diwali party. I would be expecting around 60-70 guests and its not a formal dinner. It is more like open house where people can come in the evening at their convenient time. I need to serve plenty of snacks like items which are tradional as well as can kind of substitute for dinner. Would greatly appreciate suggestions.....
  6. Bitter gelatin

    Is the bitterness related to the quality of gelatine only? or could there be other reason?

    The brand I used is made in New Zealand!
  8. Bitter gelatin

    I made Mango Jelly using Mango juice and unflavoured Gelatine. The jelly turned out fine but is tasting bitter. Can any one help and tell me what may be the reason. The gelatin I used is not too old and well before expiry date. Infact it was a new package that I had opened. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. White Butter

    White butter is what you get after churning cream from Cow's milk. In India, the cow's milk is usually boiled and cooled, a thick layer of cream (called 'Malai') is formed on top which is removed and churned. This separates into buttermilk and white butter.
