    Dear Moonbeams,

    Yes, you can use the store bought burger buns. You can prepare either veg or non-veg. It's your choice.

    Thank you.

    Hai, IL admins,
    My doubt is should each IL compulsorily select two recipes or can post any one recipe from the four choices given.

    Dear Shameel,

    We have made the changes. An IL-ite can post only ONE recipe from the four choices.

    Dear Varmaswathy & Spuppala,

    Salsa usually refers to spicy, often tomato based sauce and used as dips. For more details refer here.

    Thank you.

    Hi ILites,

    Here goes my recipe: PASTA RABRI. (Sweet Desi-Italian dish)

    DSC03486.JPG
    PASTA RABRI
    Ingredients
    · 1 liter full-cream milk (for Rabri)
    · 1 tin condensed milk (for Rabri)
    · 1 pinch saffron
    · 5 cardamoms, shelled and ground fine
    · Sugar (As per taste)
    · A pinch of salt
    · Pasta (Any-Spaghetti,shell,fussilli)-125gms
    · 1 cup milk+1 cup water for boiling pasta
    · Cherries/Gems/Almonds-For Garnish

    Method of Preparation
    1. Boil the pasta of your choice in the 1 cup milk+1 cup water mixture, till the pasta becomes soft and succulent. Drain and keep aside.
    2. Pour the full cream milk and the condensed milk into a heavy-bottomed pot. Add saffron, cardamom, sugar and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Cook 10 – 15 minutes, till the mixture is thickened.
    3. Once the pasta and the rabri are ready, take a container/mould and spread the pasta at the bottom.
    4. Now add the thick rabri on top.
    5. Keep the container/mould in the refrigerator to set for around 2-4 hours.
    6. Invert the mould to a serving tray and garnish with almonds, crushed nuts, cherries or Gems.
