5 Fusion Recipes You Have to Try

I love entertaining and hosting dinner parties, and my favourite part is planning the menu – everything except dessert that is. Don’t get me wrong, I love to eat desserts as much as the next gal, but I’ve never been good at making them. Baking is too exact of a science for me, I’m more of a cooking by ‘andaza’ type of girl. This may be the reason that I’ve gotten so good at doctoring desserts over the years.

Nobody can dress up a boxed Betty Crocker mix better than I can, and I’m pretty much ready to accept the Oscar for faux desserts in the fusion category any time now. If you fear baking dessert as much as I do, may I suggest one of these so easy they almost don’t qualify as recipes, recipes….

Chocolate Dipped Besan – you have no idea how good chickpea flour and milk chocolate are together (and no one will really ever know why I thought of trying them together).

Barf Ka Gola – my version of the desi snow cone is made with gourmet syrups and tastes mmm, mmm good!

    These are interesting but how do we make it? Like e.g., i’m anxious to know how did you put gulab jamun in a cupcake? I wanna try that, and so with few other ideas mentioned above. It will be great if you mention how we exactly do that?
