Eat and travel

There are two things I love most in this life: travelling and trying ethnic dishes. Once my plane lands and I set foot on a foreign shore, the first place I head for is the nearest restaurant where I can get a taste of local cuisine. You can’t even imagine the things I risked putting in my mouth on my trips! Believe me, there is nothing like enjoying worm tacos with a cold beer or feeling the delicious crunching of freshly fried crickets on your teeth 🙂 I’ve been to many countries and each of them had something in store to surprise me. I even picked up a few recipes from chefs I met 🙂 But don’t worry, I’m not going to share the secrets of preparing a perfect jellyfish soup 🙂 Instead, let’s talk about something we all love and something I’m actually a true expert in – sweets 🙂 When I was in India, I was amazed by the wide assortment of tasty – and healthy! – desserts represented there. The one I liked most is called rasgulla https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rasgulla. It is actually quite easy to cook. You’ll require cottage cheese (its Indian variety in the original recipe), semolina dough and sweet syrup. What’s next? Simply shape the dough and cheese mixture into small balls and simmer them in the syrup. The gentle, creamy taste of this dessert will make your mouth water!
