It’s time for this month’s Daring Bakers Challenge!
Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen was our August 2013 Daring Bakers’ hostess and she challenged us to make some amazing regional Indian desserts. The Mawa Cake, the Bolinhas de Coco cookies and the Masala cookies – beautifully spiced and delicious! 🙂

Rasgulla is a soft, spongy & mouth drooling Indian sweet. It has its origin in the Indian state of Odisha (Orissa). Indian cottage cheese soaked in sugar syrup along with rose essence and cardamom would make this a wonderful Indian treasure.
Mushroom & Peas Curry will make a good side dish to chappathi or paratha. This is a simple recipe, which has a standard kurma base. Instead of mushroom and peas, you can add any combination of vegetables that you like.

Homemade Pizza is delicious. It can also be a fun filled weekend project with your little kids.
As soon as I joined the Baking partners, I was in awe with the previous challenge that i missed. It was the Thin Crust Vegetable Pizza which I really wanted to get my hands on for a long time.
Gobi Manchurian or Cauliflower Manchurian is a vibrant dish from the Indo Chinese Cuisine. It is said to have been developed by the small Chinese community that has lived in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) for over a century. Batter fried Cauliflower florets are tossed in to the Manchurian sauce, a sweet & salty brown sauce which is made by the delectable fusion of the basic Indian ingredients along with the Chinese Condiments to suite the Indian tastes! It is a good side for Fried Rice.
