I am super excited to post the very first dish for Cooking From The Cookbook ( CC ) Challenge .
And just don't believe my luck that yesterday I recieved a book Burgers & Smoothies from Gayathri as a winning prize for her WTML ( walk-through-memory-lane) event for my dish idli-burgers-with-moong-cutlets . Thanks a lot Gayathri for such a lovely book.
Coming back to this lovely CC challenge - it is started by a well known blogger Srivalli and if interested you can get more information from here . This challenge is all about cooking from a cookbook or handwritten notes.
I have a really huge drawer full of various cookbooks and handwritten diaries and bound books containing xerox of newspaper and magazine cuttings . So I found this as a great way to use all my notes and cookbooks .Hence decided not to lose this opportunity.
So when one more lovely book - Burgers & Smoothies ( from Tarla Dalal ) was addend to my collection I couldn't resist myself and immediately made this lovely smoothie from pomegranate and pear as luckily I had both the fruits ready in my house.
1/2cup ............chilled milk
1/2 cup ...........chilled fresh thick curds
Peel the pomegranate and separate the seeds and chill them in fridge.
Also chill the pear , cut it remove the seeds and roughly chop it in pieces along with the skin.
Now blend everything in a mixer till smooth.
You can add more milk if the smoothie is too thick.
Serve chilled .
