Mango Jam Roll Cake or Swiss Roll

Pin It

Hello friends! I'm back home after a month long break. Thank you so much to all of you for taking time out to visit my blog and for your lovely comments :)

Coming back to the recipe, a Swiss roll or jelly roll is a type of sponge cake roll. The thin cake is made of eggs, flour and sugar and baked in a very shallow rectangular baking tray, called a sheet pan. The cake is removed from the pan and spread with jam or butter-cream, rolled up, and served in circular slices. ( Source : Wikipedia )

Simple, quick and easy to make! The slices of the roll can be served warm, cold or at room temperature with whipped cream. Or enjoy it plain with a cup of tea or coffee!

Eid Greetings & Firni ( Rice flour & Milk Pudding )

Pin It

Eid-ul-Fitr is a festival that marks the end of the Holy month of Ramadan. This joyous day is celebrated to give thanks for the blessings of Ramadan. Muslims attend the congregational Eid prayer service which is held in the morning. They wear new clothing, cook delicious food and invite friends and neighbors to celebrate with them. Fasting during Ramadan inspires sympathy for the hungry and needy, and encourages Muslims to donate generously to the poor.

Traditionally, Sheer Khurma ( Milk with Dates) is prepared by Muslims on Eid ul-Fitr in South Asian countries especially Pakistan & India. This special dish is served on the morning of Eid day in the family after the Eid prayer as breakfast, and throughout the day to all the visiting guests.

I'll post its recipe on next Eid Insha-Allah ( I'm still away on vacation, this is a scheduled post ), but here is the recipe of Firni which is also prepared on Eid.

Firni ( Rice flour & Milk Pudding ) is one of the most popular Pakistani dessert after Kheer ( Milk & Rice Dessert ). In Firni, ground rice is used instead of whole rice grain. Its texture is smooth & silky. The addition of khoya makes it more rich & delicious :)
