Herb Pesto Rolls

Herb Pesto Rolls

Crispy on the top, soft and chewy on the inside, these aromatic herbal infusion Pesto Rolls made with Master Cook Maida are sure to satisfy your cravings!

Ingredients

500 gm / 3 cups + 2 tbsp Mastercook Maida
7 gm / 1 tsp Salt
6 gm / 2 tsp Yeast
300 ml / 1 ¼ cup Water
1 gm / ¼ tsp Sugar
20 ml / 1.5 tbsp Olive oil
3 gm / 1 tsp Mixed herbs
75 gm / 5 tbsp Herb Pesto

Procedure

In a small bowl, combine the water, yeast and sugar. Set aside to bloom for a few minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together the Mastercook Maida and salt.
Make a well in the centre and add the yeast mixture, slowly combining the flour to form a soft and shaggy mass.
Knead for 2-3 minutes until no dry flour remains.
Let it become hot and using a ladle, pour the batter in a thin stream from a height of atleast 7-8 inches above the mold and exactly in the center.
Add the herbs and mix well into the dough.
Once the dough has come together and is slightly soft, add the olive oil and knead for 4-5 minutes until the oil is fully incorporated and the dough is soft and smooth.
Roll into a ball, cover and proof for 30-45 minutes until the dough doubles in size.
Take the dough out onto a floured surface and roll into an even rectangle roughly measuring 18*12 inches.
Spread the pesto evenly all over, leaving a border of ½ inch on each side and 2 inches on the side furthest from you.
Start rolling the dough from the edge closest to you till you reach the end. Press the edge to seal.
Cut the log into 12 equal pieces, roughly 1.5 inches wide.
Place into a greased tray, spread evenly apart.
Proof for 30-45 minutes until doubled and touching each other. Begin preheating the oven after 20 minutes to 200 C / 400 F / Gas Mark 6.
Bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes till golden and crispy on top. Brush with olive oil after baking and serve warm.
Spread the pesto evenly all over, leaving a border of ½ inch on each side and 2 inches on the side furthest from you.

Tips for Cooking

You can use either a mixture of herbs for your pesto or just a basil pesto but ensure that the herb pesto does contain most of the basil as it is very aromatic and will contribute majorly to the final aroma of the rolls.
Ensure that the pesto you use has less olive oil. Store bought pesto will have a light layer of oil on top to prevent oxidation. Avoid using this oil as it will prevent you from rolling it properly. This pesto oil can be used later to brush onto the rolls once they are baked.
You can add other toppings into the roll as well, like cheese, olives, sundried tomatoes etc. Just ensure that they do not have too much moisture.

Mawa Modak

These Mawa Modaks are a treat for anyone with a sweet tooth; they’re simple to make and delicious to eat. Add some dried fruits for some extra nutrition!

Ingredients

250 gm / 1 cup Mawa or Khoya
150 gm / 1 cup Sugar
5 gm / 1.5 tsp Mastercook elaichi, powdered

Procedure

In a pot, preferably nonstick, add the mawa and stir gently till it begins to melt.
Add the sugar and elaichi powder and stir well.
The mixture will now be quite liquid.
Keep stirring for atleast 7-8 minutes until it thickens and comes together.
At this point, your mawa will be a slight offwhite color. You can choose to keep it this way, or cook for an addition 5-7 minutes, till it caramelises and changes color to a caramel brown. Either way is delicious and its your preference.
Once the mawa mixture is cooked to your liking, take it out in a bowl and let it sit for atleast 7-8 hours covered at room temperature.
After 7-8 hours, place about 40 gm of the mixture into a medium size modak mould and press to form the shape, scrape off any excess and set aside
Optionally, you can stuff the modak with chopped dry fruits. Just take a little of the mawa mixture and incorporate it into the dry fruits to help it sit inside the modak properly

Tips for Cooking

Use high quality mawa for this recipe as it contributes a lot to the final flavour of the modak
If you are cooking the mawa mixture till it is only offwhite, then you can add some saffron to give it a light yellow color.
You can also add finely chopped dryfruits to the mixture directly while cooking instead of stuffing it later on.
Panchamrit is typically made from Milk, but since that would ruin the texture of the cream, we have used Khoya instead.

Steamed Modak

Delectable Steamed Modaks with mouthwatering coconut stuffing – no wonder it’s a crowd-pleaser! Ideal for coconut and Modak fans alike.

For Dough

250 gm / 2 cups Vijay Gold Rice Flour
400 ml / 2 cups Water
3 gm / 1 tsp Salt
5 gm / 1 tsp Ghee

For Filling

150 grams / 2 cups loosely packed grated coconut
75 gm / 1 cup whole jaggery or jaggery powder
3 gm / 1 tsp Mastercook Elaichi, powdered

Procedure

In a pot, heat the water along with the salt and ghee
Once it is boiling, add in all the rice flour at once and mix very well.
Once it is thoroughly mixed, cover with a lid and rest for 5-10 minutes.

For large modaks, divide the dough into 10 pieces, for medium size, divide into 15 pieces. Also set your steamer to heat up.
Take each piece and gently flatten it using your hands to form a cup shape.
Pinch the dough at the sides to form pleats.
Add about a tbsp of the filling in the center and gently press the dough together to form the modak shape.
Set aside and prepare the rest.
Steam the large modaks for about 15-20 minutes and the medium modaks for about 10-11 minutes.

Tips for Cooking

The water and rice flour ratio has to be correct to form the right consistency
Knead the dough when it is hot, if it cools down it will be difficult to work with and may not give the desired result. If it is too hot, you may use a cloth to press and knead the dough.

Makhan Mishri

Makhan Mishri

A Vijay Gold special Poha Recipe for Gokulashtami, Aval Kesari topped with a fluffy buttercream and garnished with Saffron, nuts and rock sugar, or mishri.

Ingredients

For the Aval Kesari

75 gm / 3/4th cup Vijay Gold Thick Avalakki
150 ml / 2/3rd cup Water
50 ml / ¼ cup Milk
100 gm / ½ cup Sugar
20 gm / 2 tbsp Ghee
Few strands of Saffron, optional

For the Makhan Mishri (Buttercream)

100 gm / ½ cup Butter, softened
150 gm / 1 ½ cup Powdered sugar
20 ml / 2 tbsp Whipping cream

Procedure

In a pot, add the ghee and let it heat up on medium flame. On the side, heat the milk and water together until boiling.
Once warm, add the Vijay Gold Thick Avalakki and roast on medium low flame until just beginning to brown and become fragrant.
Add all the liquid at one go and mix well to combine.
Turn the flame to low and cover with a lid. Allow to cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Once all the water has evaporated, add the sugar and mix well to combine.
Cook well until the mixture is thick and the poha is cooked.
Finish with a little more ghee and serve warm or cold. For this recipe, we will serve it cold.
In a mixing bowl, add the softened butter and using a electric whisk, whip on high speed for 4-5 minutes until the butter is pale and fluffy, scrape down the sides as required.
Add the powdered sugar and whipping cream. Start on low speed to prevent the sugar from flying.
Once the sugar is mixed in, increase the speed to high and whip for 3-4 minutes until thickened, and very fluffy

To assemble

Using a round cookie cutter, add about 2 tbsp of the Aval kesari and press lightly to form it into a disc.
Take off the cutter and pipe small stars of the makkhan mishri on top to cover the surface of the kesari.
Garnish with chopped nuts, and rock sugar, or mishri.

Tips for Cooking

You can prepare the components separately a day prior and assemble it the next day to serve.
The Aval Kesari will not be very sweet on its own, as the buttercream is very sweet and will balance out when eaten together.
You can add jaggery as well instead of sugar into the kesari. But note that this wont work for the buttercream
We add whipping cream to stabilise the buttercream, but incase you do not have it, you can make it without the cream, but you may require refrigeration to prevent the buttercream from becoming soft.

BASBOUSA RECIPE

BASBOUSA RECIPE

A traditional Middle Eastern dessert, this semolina cake is made with Vijay Bansi Sooji & soaked in sugar syrup after baking! A guilty pleasure to be enjoyed on a special occasion.

Ingredients

For Basbousa
225 gm / 1&1/3 cup Vijay Gold Bansi Sooji
50 gm Sugar, powdered
30 gm / 2 tbsp Butter, melted
30 gm / 2 tbsp Ghee, melted
50 gm / 4 tbsp Coconut, dessicated
10 ml / ¾ tbsp Rose Water
200 ml / ¾ cup Milk
For Sugar Syrup:
80 gm / 1/3 cup Sugar
90 ml / 1/3 cup Water
For Topping:
9 Almonds, blanched and peeled

Procedure

Preheat your oven to 180 C / 375 F / Gas Mark 4. Grease a 6*6 square pan with ghee and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the Vijay Gold Bansi Sooji and powdered sugar till well combined.
Add the ghee and mix well using a spatula till the mixture is thoroughly combined.
Now add the Coconut and mix well.
Add the milk and rose water and mix thoroughly to combine, ensure that there are no lumps.
Let the mixture stand for 5-10 minutes for the sooji to absorb the milk slightly.
Mix once again and pour the mixture into your prepared tray. Score the top into 9 even pieces and top each one with a peeled almond.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
While the Basbousa is baking, prepare your sugar syrup by dissolving the sugar in the water and boiling the syrup for 3-4 minutes. Allow it to cool completely.
Once your Basbousa is out of the oven, pour all the sugar syrup evenly over the top, it may look like it is too much, but it will all be absorbed. After pouring the syrup, allow it to stand for 30-40 mins before slicing and serving.

Tips for Cooking

If you do not have dessicated coconut, you can use freshly grated coconut as well. Keep in mind that this will contain a little more moisture and the milk will have to be reduced slightly by about 25-30 ml.
The milk can be slightly warm when you add it to the sooji mixture, this allows the sooji to absorb it much quicker and hastens the baking process as well.
Incase your mixture is too dry after adding the milk, add a little more to make it into a thick batter consistency.
