Boursin Stuffed Cheese Buns/Triple Cheese Herbed Buns

Boursin is a brand of popular cream cheese which is easily available in France. We are ardent fan of their garlic and herbed cream cheese and this cheese have its own place in our fridge. This garlic flavoured herbed cream cheese makes an excellent spread to enjoy with grilled bread slices or else to stuff in home made yeasted buns. I have been looking for a chance to give a try to this boursin stuffed cheese buns, finally i baked some for this week's blogging marathon. Yes i picked 'Triple the dose' as theme for this week's blogging marathon, obviously my today's post is loaded with cheese. As per the theme,i prepared the dough with ricotta cheese,stuffed with boursin cheese which is topped with some parmesan cheese.

Khichdo - Gujarati Cracked Wheat Sweet

My love for Gujarati cuisine, pulled me again to make a lipsmacking cracked wheat based sweet from this cuisine. Khichdo, an excellent delicious Gujarati sweet dish i have prepared recently for an occasion at home. This fabulous kheer like sweet is prepared in Gujarat during festivals like Makar Sankranti (Uttarayan-a kite festival).  This sweet is prepared specially for this festival which is eaten later and shared with the loved ones and relatives. Its quite a traditional dish and this dish calls for cracked wheat, milk with dryfruits. Some add channadal or toordal or else a combination of these two dals along with cracked wheat. Since i want to give a try with both dals, i went with both channa dal and toor dal. This sweet is a nutritious dish which is served along with peanut chikki and brinjal sabji for Uttarayan special.
