Celebrating II Blog Anniversary With Darsaan and Ice Cream

P1060317

Hi Friends!

As I had already mentioned during my May month’s event announcement and giveaways that this month is special as my blog baby turns 2 and today is the day when 2 years back with all hesitation and doubts in my mind I had posted my first post.

My blog is now 2 years and 253 posts old today. I had posted a Litchi Kulfi for the 1st Birthday which was appreciated by many. I wanted to post a simple and yet a very simple dessert for this occasion and I had planned the Darsaan many days back.

 

Darsaan is nothing but honeyed noodles served with vanilla or butterscotch ice cream . I was introduced to this dessert by S when I had visited Mainland China about 6 years back. It is a very popular Chinese dessert and is normally available in all major Chinese joints. I developed an instant liking for it but in all these years I have always relished it in restaurants and never attempted making it at home. The blog anniversary was surely the perfect time to try it out.

The recipe has been tried from a book called Delectable Desserts Of The World by Asha Khatau.  I made every thing from scratch but for those who are in a hurry can use fried noodles or fried wonton strips for making this dessert.

Ingredients

For Noodles

a pinch of salt

a pinch of baking powder

3tsp oil

water for kneading

flour for dusting

For Honey Sauce

2tbsp sugar

2tbsp water

2tbsp honey

For Serving

Vanilla Ice Cream

roasted sesame seeds

slivered almonds

Method For Making Noodles

Make a dough using the ingredients under noodles and let it rest covered for half an hour.

Using more flour roll the dough into a 9 inch circle.

Dust the rolled circle thoroughly and cut it into strips and fry on a medium flame till light golden in colour.

Remove on  a kitchen towel.

Method for honey sauce

While the noodles are almost ready take sugar and water in a small pan, once the sugar dissolves add the honey and mix.

Assembling the Darsaan

Pour the honey sauce over the fried noodles, sprinkle roasted sesame seeds and almond slivers. Serve with the vanilla ice cream immediately. One has to work very fast with the sauce as it thicken and hardens very quickly.
