It is the most wonderful time of the year. I luv everything about it, right from the lent leading up to it, decorating the christmas tree with baubles, decorations and lots and lots of lights, all the gift making and wrapping, the special midnight mass at church and the delicious food I get to make for my family and friends.

We also had a Christmas Party at work where we all brought food and I was asked to make - no surprises there - my prawn biriyani. I had never made it for so many people, so was a bit worried. I used my biriyani chembu to prepare it and avoided the microwave coz of the quantities I had to prepare. It turned out superb. My hubby wanted me to bring back left overs and he was disappointed  :-) I chuckled inside.

This time as gifts for work colleagues I decided to make these quick and easy chocolate balls with peanut centre and some Rugelach.

My dear friend P introduced me to a 'Lakeland' and OMG it was a paradise for cooks. Things u dream about, its all there. I went there to get my gift packaging, but left a bag much bigger than expected, full of goodies.

My friends at work thoroughly enjoyed all the yummy gifts and their family were after the recipes soon.

Here is how I made them.

1 - Peanut butter - 400g
     Butter , softened - 3/4 cup
     Brown sugar - 3/4 cup - preferably with granules for that bite
     Icing sugar - 3 1/4 cup

2 - Chocolate chips, melted - 200g, I used dark chocolate.


- Mix (1) together. Roll into 1 inch balls (not any larger) and leave in refrigerator to cool and firm.

- Melt (2). The easiest way is to microwave them. Heat at full power for 10 seconds at a time, mixing with a spoon after each 10 seconds.

- Dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Leave to set the chocolate coated ball onto wax paper and cool.

- Keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat them!

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
