Mouth Watering Birthday Recipes

1. Vermicelli Pudding
· 170 grams of thin vermicelli
· 1-liter milk
· 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
· 30 grams of chopped shelled pistachio nuts
· 125 grams of cashew nuts, well chopped and toasted
· ¼ teaspoon of ground cardamom
· 230 grams of sugar
· 2 cups of water

For preparing the vermicelli pudding you need to first melt the butter in a saucepan. Then sauté the cardamom and vermicelli until it is light brown. After it becomes brown, add sugar, water and boil the mixture. Now add almonds, cashews, and pistachio. If you want then you can also add the vanilla color and vanilla essence. Bring the dish to a boil and then pour into a serving dish.

2. Cookies
· 45 grams of semolina
· ¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
· 150 grams of butter, which should be melted properly
· 250 grams of plain flour
· 250 grams of sugar

Firstly you need to mix flour, semolina, sugar and bicarbonate of sugar properly in a bowl. Now add a little bit of butter, so that the mixture can be turned into soft dough. Out of the mixture, make small balls of the size of a marble. Flatten and place them on the baking trays, leaving a space of 4m between them. Bake them for over 20 minutes and then remove from the oven and allow them to cool before serving.

3. Chocolate Slices
· ½ cup of butter
· 2 tablespoons of honey
· 225 grams of semi-sweet biscuits
· 2 tablespoon of raisins
· 4-1/2 tablespoons of cocoa
· 2 tablespoons of chopped nuts, which can be walnuts, almonds or peanuts

Mix the butter, honey and cocoa into the pan. Put the pan onto gentle heat and stir it occasionally. Remove the pan as soon as the butter melts. Crush the biscuits while the butter is melting. You can do this by putting them in the plastic bag and beating it lightly with the rolling pin. Similarly crush the nuts into small pieces. When the mixture cools down, put the pieces of crushed biscuits and the nuts into it. Stir them well. Now slightly grease the cake-tin, by putting the half a teaspoon of butter into it and rubbing it all over the base of the tin. Now pour in the biscuit mixture. Leave it in the refrigerator for setting. After the mixture is set properly take out the mixture from the pan and cut into thin slices.
