Bakes & Roasts

Pithe-puli-payesh

These are some of the things that often bake or roast towards the end of the year for parties and gatherings.

Sweet

Some of these cakes lend themselves beautifully to this season and what's available in the market, for example, the orange-poppyseed cake (a personal favourite) and the steamed carrot and ginger pudding with a cha-sauce! This year, we've also published on the Bong Eats website a much-requested recipe for an alcohol-free Christmas fruitcake that doesn't require a long soak.

Savoury

The vindaloo, pot roast and ribs are all fairly easy to make and serve at home, or to carry to parties. Besides these you may also want to check out Rahul Mandal's Rannaghare Ke? episode where he bakes mutton patties using the "rough-puff" method.
