Sweet Potato and Corn Kebab / Shakarkandi aur Makai ke Kabab

Shakarkandi / Sweet potato is used a lot in our kitchens especially during vrat's as it is sweet in taste and has lots of carbohydrate that gives you stamina to fast whole day. But do you know that it is very good for diabetic people as the GI index of Sweet Potato is much less than Potato and it taste yummier. I wanted to make something special for our Tea Party so thought why not try to combine corn and  sweet potato and make something interesting yet appealing, ideal for get-together and parties.

Coconut Laddu / Nariyal ke Laddu/ નારીયેલ ના લાડુ

Coconut Laddu is one of the popular sweet in India, specially made during festivals such as Navratri, Shravan Maas, is one of the most relished sweet during fast or vrat. Nariyal laddu is very easy and simple sweet and very quick to make... no hassle of making syrup, can be made within 30 mins. I learnt this from my mom, she used to make this during vrats and specially on the first day of navratri. This recipe is very close to heart as this was the first sweet dish which i prepared without her help when i was only 12 yrs old. This post is in memory of my mom and to my lovely sisters who loves this sweet.

Hope you will enjoy and make this during navratri. Wishing my all dear friends and readers a Happy Navratri.
