Fettuccine Alfredo




Fettuccine Alfredo is one of the most favourite recipe of my family. I tried to make it little bit of healthier and egg less version. Instead of egg I use white sauce to make it creamier and thicker and if you don't want too much cream you can replace heavy cream with whole milk or 2 % milk to make it more low calorie version.







Ingredients:
fettuccine pasta 10 oz
Butter 1 stick
All purpose flour 1 tbsp
garlic 2-3 cloves (finely chopped)
sugar 1 tea spoon
black pepper 1 tea spoon
dried parsley 1 tea spoon
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese 2 cup
Heavy cream 1 cup
salt to taste





Method:
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add fettuccine pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender; drain
2. In a large skillet melt butter and add the chopped garlic. Cook on low for about 5 minutes. Stirring often and add all purpose flour in it and mix it well.
3. Slowly, add heavy cream and stir continuously make sure there will be no lumps.
4. As the mixture starts to boil add 1 cup of Parmesan cheese and continue to mix the cream. Pour in the remaining Parmesan and parsley, mix until smooth.
5. Immediately remove from the stove. Serve over cooked pasta.

Any  Guesses?

Race Car Birthday Cake

We celebrated my son's birthday today. He is crazy about race cars. So, I decided to make race car cake for his birthday. I showed him couple of race car cake picture from Internet and then he started to design his own cake for his birthday :) So finally, we both come up with this design.
For cake I used Betty croker instant cake mix and substitute eggs with flex seeds powder. It tastes actually better with flex seeds than eggs. I made three 9 inches cakes. Two of them I used for the base and one to carve the car. I used fondant to cover the car and doors and windows. To give race track effect I used black icing ( mix black food color in icing) and make square around the side of the cake and made some grass on the side of the mud.

What is Sabudana/ Sago/ Topioca ?

After publishing sabudana paratha I have got lots of question about sabudana? So for those who doesn't know about Sabudana, I have my wiki search result which I am posting here. You will get sabudana from any Indian Store.


Tapioca is a starch extracted from the root of the plant species Manihot esculenta. This species, native to the Amazon, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Venezuela is now cultivated worldwide and has many names, including cassava, bitter-cassava, manioc, "mandioca", "aipim", "macaxeira", "manioca", "boba", "yuca" (not to be confused with yucca), "Sagudana" (literally, Sagu drops)--with local variation of "Sabudana"--and "kappa". In Vietnam, it is called bột năng. In Indonesia, it is called ubi kayu or singkong.
The name tapioca is derived from the word tipi'óka, the name for this starch in Tupi.[1] This Tupi word refers to the process by which the starch is made edible. However, as the word moved out of South America it came to refer to similar preparations made with other esculents.[citation needed]
Tapioca is a staple food in some regions and is used worldwide as a thickening agent, mainly in foods. Tapioca is gluten free, and almost completely protein free. 'Tapioca' in Britain often refers to a milk pudding thickened with arrowroot,[citation needed] while in Asia the sap of the Sago palm is often part of its preparation.[citation needed]
