Today I propose a collection of recipes for evening snacks; we are now in August, it's time for sun, sea and especially the many picnic on the terrace in the company of family and friends. Often for snacks on the evening we opt for traditional and quick sandwiches with meats, which are certainly very good and is simple to transport and consume; but if we are looking for foods to eat on the summer evening, they are delicious and convenient to carry at the same time, here's a proposal that could be for you.
I thought I would collect in this post some of my recipes more interesting and suitable to be transported and consumed by the evening in a simple and practical. From classic and always good omelettes, stuffed vegetables such as eggplant, potatoes and zucchini, ending with meat loaf or roast ideal to be enjoyed cold.
In this way, what to bring to eat on the terrace is no longer a problem, because my simple proposal with this recipe summer lunch by the evening is not only made of puffed rice and cold cuts, but also tasty and easy to carry during our trip to the terrace. It remains for me to wish you good appetite and then good trip to the terrace with my recipes for evening snacks.
Nothing could be easier to prepare, these cakes are crisp and oddly diseases at the same time. The puffed rice krispies treat is puffed rice combined with jaggery and honey there are also different versions of this recipe by adding other ingredients such as chocolate or vanilla useful for festivals or to make as it is malleable and moldable and just made rigid after a few hours. Moreover, thanks to its light weight, the rice crispy treat is a viable solution for creating three-dimensional characters or decorations at several levels.
Puffed Rice Balls
5 cups Puffed rice
1 cup Jaggery
1 tsp Cardamom powder
1 tsp ginger
1 cup honey
2 tsp ghee
1 cup coconut
1 cup water
In a heavy bottom vessel, add water, honey and jaggery and mix together. Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the honey turns to thread consistency. Add cardamom powder and dried ginger, coconut and remove from heat.
Stir the puffed rice into the honey mixture and mix it thoroughly using a big flat spoon until everything is thoroughly coated.
When it is warm enough to hold by hand, grease the hand with ghee, take the mixture and roll tightly into a ball. The balls must be made before the mixture cools down completely. Or spread on a greased sheet/plate and let it cool a few minutes and cut into bars.
Serve after it has completely cooled.
