Learn how to make eggless Mug/Cup cake in a microwave. โœจ

I love me some cake and I keep craving for cake every now and then, yes I know that’s bad ๐Ÿ˜› But the good thing is that you can make it whenever you want to and it’s eggless and it’s very quick too! ๐Ÿ˜€ 

Ingredients you’ll need are

Excuse my bad photography and shabby placement. ๐Ÿ˜› 

Measurements:

4 Tablespoons of Flour

2 Tablespoons of Sugar

1/8th Teaspoon of Baking Powder

3-4 Tablespoons of Milk (Depends on the consistency) 

1 Tablespoon of Vegetable Oil/ Butter 

2 Drops of Vanilla Essence 

1-2 Teaspoons of Cocao Powder 

You can add egg too if you eat egg. 

Method: 

Get yourself a big Mug add all the ingredients and mix everything well. As you’re done mixing add a good 1 -2 tablespoons of Nutella in the batter or on the top on the batter. Pop it in the microwave for 2-3 Minutes. The time may vary with different microwaves. 

Let your cake cool a bit and if you’re too eager just like I’m then dig right into it when it’s still warm (just don’t burn you tongue, haha) ๐Ÿ˜› 

You can top your cake with a lot of goodness you want like Ice Cream (my favourite), Lotus Biscoff Spread/Biscuits (you can add that into the cake batter too), Whipped cream, Your choice of icing, Fruits (add after you microwave), Your choice of chocolate (you can add that into the battar too), etc ๐Ÿ˜€ 


That’s my final product, I just dint add the cacao powder, and topped it with some Happiness (Nutella)

If you’re lazy and you don’t want to do anything like this then you can also get those cake mixes from the shop like betty crocker, pillsbury, dr. oetker, etc. get any of the mixes of your choice abd then take a mug; Add 4 tablespoons of cake mix, 3-4 tablespoons of milk, 1 tablespoon of oil, mix it well and pop it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, top your cake with ice cream or whatever you want and your cake is ready to eat! ๐Ÿ˜€

Hope you enjoyed this little bake with me blog! If you like this then don’t forget to share it with your friends and family! It’s really easy, fast and eggless too. Don’t worry the cake tastes great, I guarantee you that, just be precise with your measurements. ๐Ÿ˜€ 

Eid Mubarak to all my friends celebrating!๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒ™ 

Stay healthy and Stay foodie! ๐Ÿ˜€

Zahrat Al Madina Restaurant, Best Falafel Joint-Ajman

We’ve been going to Zahart Al Madina Restaurant since a decade or more and this place has never failed wowing me with their Falafel Sandwich!! Anybody who loves Falafel sandwich/wrap should surely visit them because you’re for sure missing something yummy, they make the best falafel sandwiches/wraps. They serve Indian, Pakistani and Arabic Cuisine. I personally have tasted nothing other than their very well known Falafel Sandwich, Falafel, Samosa and Onion Bhajiya. The location is a bit tricky so please check the directions to this place on Zomato, I’m sure that will help you and you’ll love the food just like I do!

Even after they’re located in Ajman we don’t mind driving through the Sharjah traffic because literally their Falafel Sandwiches are so good, like I told in the beginning I’ve been coming here for more than a decade, the thing that is changed is the restaurants interior and location that’s it. It’s so crazy that the sandwich tastes just so good and exactly same every time I go. They make them just in front of you so you can even see how they make your food through the glass window.

Falafel Sandwich

Theย Falafel Sandwichย is made in a kaboos/pita bread and has tahini sauce, shatta paste (red tomato and chilli paste), cucumber, pickled carrots, tomatoes, cabbage and their 2 huge Falafels. One sandwich is for onlyย 2.50dhs, yess that’s it!! They always make them fresh for every person who orders and we always have a big order because we usually take few ย for the next day also, haha ๐Ÿ˜› I can’t help it. Just store them in the fridge and reheat again and voila you’re ready to eat them! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve eaten Falafels at a lot of places, nobody has beaten their taste, them falafel have a proper authentic taste and are just so good!! 1 falafel is for 0.50fils.

The taste hasn’t changed until today, the same flavours and the same taste! They do have seating inside so you can sit inside or take a takeaway and have it in the car or by the beach as the beach is near by the place, we usually prefer takeaways. The staff is very friendly and shows great hospitality. They’re really pocket friendly when it comes to food.

Rajasthan Al Malaki -Vegetarian Thali Restaurant in Sharjah

I was going through my fellow bloggers blog and read about Rajasthan Al Malaki and since then I kept bugging my parents to take me here and they did. HAHA ๐Ÿ˜›

IMG_7197

We took theย Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road to Sharjah and we were pretty lucky to get no traffic towards Sharjah, I’ll input the location in the end of the blog, so check it out!

They’re usually crowded on weekends so if you can then don’t forget to book a table, even after booking a table we had to wait for almost 45mins. I would suggest you to take a reservation on a weekend.

The restaurant isn’t too big and they’ve tried to fit pretty lot of tables so you feel really restricted with your hands, the place has a proper Rajasthan touch to everything, whether that’s the furniture, paintings, food, etc. Rajasthan Al Malaki serves Rajasthani and Gujarati cuisines in a Thali. Thali is a full course meal where different types of food varieties are served in a round plate.

IMG_7203

They serve 2 types of Thali’s 1) Week Day, Regular Thali which is for 25dhs and 2) Weekend, Royal Thali which is for 30dhs.Kids under 8 half price(for thali) They even have Ala Carte, chaats and sweet counter too. Let’s get reviewing about the food. ๐Ÿ˜€

IMG_7198

I’m surely writing this really late, but hey I’m still writing yeah? Haha sorry ๐Ÿ˜›

We were served 4 farsan, 2 sweets, 4 vegetables, 3dals, 3 types of rotis, 2 types of rice, 2 types of salad.

They started with the Farsan (snacks/starer) Dal Batti Churma, Dahi Vada, Shami Kabab, Khaman Dhokla. It was the best Dal batti churma I’ve ever had, the churma was so soft yet not dry and the dal had all proper spices to it, loved it! Dahi vada, literally my second favourite farsan, I’m very picky with my Dahi vada and they tasted so good, as you put in your mouth they dissolve right than second, not too sweet and really tasty and fresh. I wasn’t too found of the shami kabab because they tasted kind of under cook. They dint have Gobi Patra in the menu as they were finished so we were served with Khaman Dhokla, umm they were fine, kind of dry otherwise was fine. They’re served with Spicy and Sweet Chutney.

Next comes the Vegetables/Sabzi’s Paneer Jodhpuri, Methi Mutter Malai, Gatta Curry and Aloo Lasaniya, personally all are my favourite sabzi’s but I was really looking forward for Gatta Curry I love Gatta Curry soo much and they nailed it!! The gatta wasn’t too dry and hard so that was a good thing and the gravy was tasty too, not too sweet and not spicy either. Paneer Jodhpuri, Methi Mutter Malai and Aloo Lasaniya were great too, liked all of them, tasted great!

Next comes the Dals, Rajasthani Dal, Mithi Dal (sweet dal) and Jodhpuri Kadhi, when it comes to dal I barely have any, don’t ask me why ๐Ÿ˜› I’m so much busy eating other things that I always forget the dal ๐Ÿ˜› All of them tasted good, I personally liked the Rajasthani Dal and Jodhpuri Kadhi because it tasted more like what my Mom makes, so yeah that was a win for me. I don’t like sweet dal a lot so Mithi Dal dint work for me.

Next comes the Rotis, they’ve Phulka Roti, Masala Puri and Makai ke Roti, what I like about Thali places are that they do have a lot of varieties but they don’t serve more than anything the person need so it’s not a waste. They make small puri’s, and roti’s and that too fresh and hot. Who doesn’t like garma garam roti? Ah love ittt!!! Soft rotis and puris are a win for me!

The Rice, they’ve two choices in rice, Kashmiri Pulav and Khichadi, Ummm na na dint like either of them! Khichadi was too runny and Kashmiri Pulav were too spicy and had a lot of Khada Masala which is one thing I hate the most, so dint like either of them. Or may be I was too full by this time that I dint like either of them, you never know ๐Ÿ˜›

And now comes my most favourite part and that is the Sweets ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ They had 3 sweets, Churma, Moong dal halwa and ย Fruit custard. Loved all of them, literally I went mad for the Moong Dal Halwa, so soft not too sweet and lots of ghee ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m not a fruit custard person but this one was pretty good won my heart with the 1st spoon. Churma was good too, the best thing was that neither of them were too sweet, loved that!

Oh how can I forget the Chaas (butter milk) loved it, but don’t drink it too much otherwise you’ll get full too fast before you eat anything. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

The waiters are so well taught their signs and they’re great servers!! The ambience is good but can get very noisy because the place isn’t too big I would say they’re mid sized. Parking isn’t an issue you can get it in front of the restaurant.

Old Gem: Venus Restaurant โœจ

Hey Foodies, how is you all doing?? Good yeah? I’m back with a new blog and this time it’s not about a new restaurant, it’s about one of the oldest gems in Dubai! They’re located in Karama, opposite lulu park and beside Atlas institute.

Venus is one of the oldest restaurants in Dubai and has been the best with their South Indian dishes!! I believe every restaurant has the good and the bad dishes, so does Venus. Whenever we get confused or don’t know where to go for dinner we always opt for Venus. 

We usually order their dosa’s or thali’s. My mom is a fan or their Medu Vada dip in Sambhar, she almost has it as her fix order, haha. There are a lot of things I like/love and few dislike. You should have their Mysore Masala/Sada Dosa, Paratha Korma, Medu Vada Dip in Sambhar, Thali, Set Dosa and Sada Dosa, etc. (That’s a lot of things I like/love) They make the BEST Sambhar, Chutneys and Rassam! A must have side. I haven’t had the same sambhar or chutney anywhere else until  today! The shambar keeps boiling or simmering the whole time which makes it taste so good and fresh. 

 (Left to Right, Medu Vada dip in Sambhar, Mysore Masala Dosa, Masala Dosa and Set Dosa.) 

Recently we had been to venus and thought of trying something different and we ordered their Venus Special punjabi sabzi, actually the staff told us that it’s a very good sabzi so we gave it a try, NO a big NO. The taste of the gravy was okay not the best and it was confusing, there were a lot of khada masala (whole spices) frozen vegetables, little bit of paneer crumble and lot of spices. Even the naan was too chewy and hard to break. So that was a disappointment! Roti’s and naans are always suppose to be breakable and soft to eat even when they get cold. 

(Venus Special Sabzi, Naan, Roti accompanied with side salad) 

I think you should mostly stick to the South Indian rather than the North Indian food, but you should always give a try to new things too if you’re feeling adventurous, haha. 

Recently they’ve renovated this place and it looks better than before with more tables added, they should do some changes too like their chairs, cutlery, etc! Hygiene wise they’re clean, very good and friendly Manager and staff. The prices have gone higher a dirhams or two for everything after the renovation and few items have been added to the menu. I would still say they’re quite pocket friendly!!

Ratings:

Food: 4/5

Staff: 4/5 

Hygiene: 4/5

Money wise: 3/5

And overall I would rate: 8.5/10. 

This is it for Venus Restaurant, I think good restaurants don’t need more explanations. I hope you’re enjoying these blogs! Let me know in the comments below what you want me to try and review about, I would be more than happy! So stay hooked with me, until next time take care and see you soon! ๐Ÿ˜

 

New Restaurant Alert: Sangam Restaurant and Sweetsโœจย 

Hello Foodies, how are you all foodies doing?? Yummilious? Haha. I’m back after trying a New Vegetarian Restaurant, Sangam Restaurant and Sweets. They’ve just opened 2-3months ago, Opposite ENOC Head Office, Near Lamcy Plaza, Oud Metha, Dubai. They’ve a branch in Abu Dhabi also.   

 

Sangam Restaurant has a wide range in their menu, they serve North, South and Chinese Cuisine. But, they haven’t started serving their Chinese Cuisine still. 

As we entered the 1st thing that came to my mind was, this place is spacious and quite big, it was even busy around 10:30 pm and I’ve already been here twice. 

 
Let’s talk about the main thing, the “Food” we ordered a lot of different food items both the times. 

Our 1st time order, from left to right, Mysore Sada Dosa, Tandoori Platter, Onion Tomato Chilly Uthappam, Paratha Korma, Paratha Channa,  and RasMalai.

              

Tandoori platter was good and flavourful, what I dint like about it was their harabhara kebabs, they were extremely hard to break and very dry from the inside. Seekh kebab and Paneer tikka was tasty and even had the real taste of tandoor, Paratha kurma and Paratha channa was also good, the channa gravy had both North and South taste to it, with all the garam masala and spiciness it tasted really good. Uthappam was also good! I had also ordered their Rasmalai but na I dint like it. I’ve had better Rasmalai’s, very average. Oh, I forgot about  Mysore sada dosa, really liked it. It had a little sour after taste, their chutneys and shambar tasted good and freshly made.  

 
The second time we were with our family friend and our order from left to right, Masala Papad, Paneer Achari Tikka, Subz-E- Kofta Makhmali, Handi Paneer, Butter Naan, Lacha Paratha and Rassam.

 
I really loved Paneer Achari tikka, that achari taste to paneer and that too it was tandoored which made everything just too good. It’s was a little spicy because of the marination but totally worth trying. The two Subzi’s one I liked and the other was absolutely a No No. Both the subzi’s look ditto similar and had a very similar taste too, just difference it had was that one Sabzi’s gravy was thicker and more tasty and the other one was more watery and more like tomato purรฉe, both were Brown onion tomato gravy. Subz-E- Malai Kofta was tasty, it had roasted Makhana’s and the kofta was also properly cooked and had a good taste. Handi Paneer is a No No, very watery gravy and dint like it, I’ve had Handi Paneer at a lot of places, dint match the taste, it lacked of spices and even had less of paneer and more of tomato purรฉe in it. Lacha partha and butter naan were alright. The portions are little smaller than other restaurants.  

The staff is attentive and friendly, but hygiene wise they’re a little dirty, that’s were I was not happy about. But overall it was a pretty good experience and would like to try their other dishes too. One thing I would want to add is that it’s definitely a Pocket Friendly restaurant. The first time our bill was about AED55.50 and the second time it was AED85. 

Ratings,

Food: 4/5

Staff: 4/5

Hygiene: 3/5 

Money wise: 4.5/5

And overall rating would be: 8/10 , I wouldn’t mind dinning here again.
