Ukdiche Modak

By: Tarika Singh

If you’re making these for the first time, these can be tough to handle, especially because the dough is kneaded when steaming hot, but thanks to the stand mixer, this was made super easy- a luxury a grandmothers didn’t have. Kneading with the dough hook of the stand mixer is a dream as you watch the dough come together and you can add water little by little as the dough tends to dry out.

Roasted Almond Jaggery Brittle

By: KitchenAid India

With seasons flying by, it’s time to reach for warmer flavors, things that give comfort. Through fall and winter reach out for the goodness of iron rich jaggery. This brittle is easy to make. Using a good quality heavy bottom pan is key to getting the jaggery cooked well. Use a simple ‘water test’ to make sure the jaggery is done. I missed it once, and happily scraped the ‘not quite done’ brittle back into this fabulous pan, did the water test, and success! Use whichever nuts you fancy. A mix of cashew nuts, pistachios, walnuts, and almonds are good too. Throw in dried cranberries or melon seeds too if you like. This is your brittle, make it with love!

Instant Khaman Dhokla

By: Kankana Saxena

Growing up in a Bengali family where fish and poultry has always been the preferred choice of protein, chickpeas always took a back seat. Except for occasional chickpea stew or using chickpea flour to make batter for deep-frying, I don’t remember seeing Mom using it a lot. Hence, it took me a while to adapt to the taste of chickpea. Arvind, on the other hand, loves the flavor of chickpea, beans or flour! So, after our marriage, I started trying my hands with a few chickpea dishes.

Hakka Noodles

By: Tarika Singh

I don’t know how and when, but I think I’ve slowly turned into the sort of person who harps on about how homemade everything is better! Like these noodles… I’m always a fried rice person when I step out for Chinese food, but it took homemade noodles from scratch to take me back to my childhood love for Hakka Noodles. You might look at the pictures and think this is too much work, but just keep in mind that it’s only because I wanted to detail every bit of noodle-making for you – it’s literally a 4-ingredient process, made super easy with KitchenAid’s Pasta Roller and Cutter Attachment that fits into your Stand Mixer.
