Bolo De Cenoura - Brazilian Carrot Cake

Brazilian carrot cake aka Bolo de Cenoura, calls for easy breezy preparation. This cake is one of the most popular and traditional Brazilian dessert. You might have already tried varieties of carrot cake but trust me this Brazilian carrot cake is completely different from those usual carrot cakes. Its quite a unique dessert with an incredible topping and looks almost like cornbread. The addition of chocolate sauce gives a fabulous touch to this flavourful carrot cake. You may wonder why am talking about this beautiful cake. Kalyani of Sizzling Tastebuds gave me carrots and cheese as my two secret ingredients for this month's Shhh Cooking Secretly, started by myself and now the event is taken by Mayuri Patel.

Kovai Hotel Angannan Naatu Kozhi Biriyani/Coimbatore Hotel Anganan Special Chicken Biryani

Sunday lunch is always special that too when we make a biriyani which is quite popular in Tamil Nadu. Actually i never had a chance to taste Coimbatore Hotel Angannan's special Biriyani but trust me google master will definitely help to replicate many traditional dishes at home just with a click. I have been looking for a different biriyani recipe since a while as i was bored to cook the same routine style of biriyani. When i was googling i got hooked to a cookery show where the chef prepared this Kovai special Hotel Anganan chicken biriyani with simple ingredients. Obviously i couldnt resist to give a try and this biriyani came out simply flavourful.

Cheese & Herbed Sundried Tomato Focaccia

Focaccia, this flat Italian bread is definitely our family favourite since ever i tried at home. You can make fantastic sandwiches with this focaccia bread though this bread can be served as an accompaniment along with a bowl of soup or salads. I brought some Sicilian sun dried tomatoes all the way from Sicily after our summer vacation, as i have seen that Sicilian cant live without this fantastic sundried beauties. Back home i was waiting to make an easy bread with it, immediately i gathered all the ingredients to bake this fantastic Italian focaccia with those flavourful sun dried tomatoes. Trust me, this focaccia bread was our moist favourite, this bread came out extremely aromatic and absolutely spongy with loads of cheese and herbs.
