Royce Chocolate Launch in Bangalore [EVENT]

I was invited to a pre-launch event of Royce Chocolate store in Bangalore. Royce is a Japanese luxury chocolate brand and they are opening their first store in Bangalore on 20th June, 2014 at JW Mariott. I got an early peek at the product lineup at this event. Though I am not a big chocolate lover, I was impressed at the quality and carefully prepared sweet treats - now I am actually waiting for the store to open so I can bring these home! Here are some pictures of the different chocolates I got to taste.

Thick Sev Raita [RECIPE]

Thick sev called lakkadiya or ganthiya in Gujarati. It is a very popular snack and you are sure to find large containers full of ganthiya in every Gujarati household. I remember my mummy making it fresh and serving us when we come back from school. The best part about this sev is that it can be used so many ways in cooking, One can even make a subzi (curry) with it.

Today I thought of making a Raita with it and gave a bit of twist by adding tempering. I remember my grandma used to make Vagharelu Dahi (curd with tempering). Using her recipe here with little bit of twist ..Enjoy !!
