While we're sure you've been busy stirring up hearty curries and coffees using coconuts this month, this versatile nut is also the best way to add creaminess to and “veganize” your favourite dishes and desserts. Here are our top three ways to help you make the most of this nutrient-dense pantry staple — 🥥Whipped cream — Take a can of full-fat coconut milk and leave it in the fridge overnight. Scoop off the ‘cream’ (save the water for your smoothies) and whip it up with a hand-mixer and a bit of sweetener. Perfect to be used with brownies, warm desserts, or fresh fruit 🥥Coconut kefir — To make coconut milk kefir, place the milk kefir grains in 4 cups coconut milk. Stir with a non-metal spoon. Cover with a cloth, secured by a rubber band. Culture at 20 to 29 degrees celcius. After 12 hours, begin checking the coconut milk for up to 24 hours. Remove the milk once the coconut kefir reaches the desired consistency 🥥Cheese sauce — Put 180ml coconut milk, 3 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes, 2 tsp tapioca flour, 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, and a pinch of paprika and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it simmer on low to medium heat, for about 1 minute until the sauce is stretchy. Enjoy it with nachos, on pizza, over pasta!

#FoodhallTestKitchen: Thinking of switching to a #plantbased diet? Turns out, one of the best places to start is your morning cup of #coffee or #tea. So @padmakkb tried three homemade non-dairy #mylks that don’t break the bank (or the #blender): 1. #OatMilk: soak 2 Tbsp instant oats in 1 cup of room temperature water for 1 hour. Blend until smooth, and strain through a fine sieve • The pros: creamy consistency, pleasant ‘oaty’ flavour, economical • The cons: can sometimes develop a slimy texture • How we like to use it: heated and frothed for a #vegan #cappuccino or #latte 2. #AlmondMilk: soak 10 almonds in 1 cup of room temperature water for at least 3 hours. Blend and strain through a muslin cloth • The pros: neutral flavour and colour • The cons: Watery consistency, tends to ‘split’ when heated up, expensive • How we like to use it: stirred into a strong cup of black #tea, or in baking recipes that call for a splash of milk 3. #CoconutMilk: blend 3 Tbsp grated coconut with 1 cup of room temperature water, and strain through a fine sieve. • The pros: Similar in texture to milk, mild flavour, heat-stable • The cons: a bit laborious to grate the coconut • How we like to use it: the most versatile of the lot, this works well as a milk substitute in sweets like custard, pastry cream, ice creams; or savoury preparations like curries and stews Have you tried making any alternative milks at home?

#FoodhallTestKitchen - Microwave Mug Cakes: Wondering how to achieve the best crumb in a matter of minutes? Microwave #MugCakes are an Instagram sensation, but they can be pretty disappointing in real life. So we tested 3 recipes to make sure you to get that quick dessert fix, with the best taste. • Method: Simply combine the ingredients with a spoon or fork in a microwave proof mug • Time: 2 minutes each 1. Eggless - ¼ cup all purpose flour, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, ¼ tsp baking powder, 2 tbsp sugar, ⅛ tsp salt, ¼ cup milk, 2 tbsp oil, few drops of vanilla essence The result - Gummy texture and the cake became drier as it got cold. 2. With egg - 4 tbsp all purpose flour, 4 tbsp sugar, 1 medium egg, 3 tbsp milk, 3 tbsp oil, few drops of vanilla essence The result - A clear #winner, among the three if we had to choose! This closely resembled a regular oven-baked cake. 3. #Vegan & gluten free - 3 tbsp oat flour (or any millet flour), 1 tbsp cocoa powder, pinch of salt, ½ tsp baking powder, 2 tbsp raw sugar (or any sweetner of your choice), 1 tbsp coconut oil, 3 tbsp almond milk (or any dairy free milk), ½ tsp vinegar (for the rise), few drops of vanilla essence The result - The batter puffed up like a marshmallow and then, as soon as the microwave turned off, it deflated like a flat tyre. We wouldn't recommend this one! If you're ready to take kitchen experiments a bit more seriously, join us for the virtual cooking classes by FCS At Home.

#FoodhallTestKitchen: Everyone has their own patented method of making the perfect cup of #chai, but which is the best? All water? Water first, then milk? All milk? We tested out the 3 most popular chai #brewing techniques so you don’t have to guess anymore! 1. Just Water: True #tea drinkers know this is the OG way to consume the beverage. With no milk or sugar to dilute the flavour, this brew packs the maximum flavour (when brewed right). Boil a cup of water and add tea leaves of your choice just before the water reaches a boil. Wait until you get the desired colour and remove from heat. 2. Water & Milk: For when you love your tea but prefer a milder brew, make your tea as mentioned above and add a little milk after you’ve poured the tea in your cup. By brewing the tea in water and not #milk, you’ll ensure you still get maximum flavour but it’s softened ever-so-slightly with the milk (sugar optional) 3. Just Milk: There’s a certain element of nostalgia when it comes to “doodh wali chai”. From Share Bazaar in Calcutta to every nook and corner in #Bombay, this kadak chai loaded with sugar is brewed purely in milk until it reduces to 2/3rd its volume. Simply add a spoon of tea leaves to a cup of milk and brew on a medium to high flame. Add in a teaspoon of sugar as well and watch the colour deepen. Want to experiment more in the kitchen? Check out our class calendar over at @foodhallcookerystudio and sign up for an upcoming session!

#FoodhallTestKitchen: Everyone has their own patented method of making the perfect cup of #chai, but which is the best? All water? Water first, then milk? All milk? We tested out the 3 most popular chai #brewing techniques so you don’t have to guess anymore! 1. Just Water: True #tea drinkers know this is the OG way to consume the beverage. With no milk or sugar to dilute the flavour, this brew packs the maximum flavour (when brewed right). Boil a cup of water and add tea leaves of your choice just before the water reaches a boil. Wait until you get the desired colour and remove from heat. 2. Water & Milk: For when you love your tea but prefer a milder brew, make your tea as mentioned above and add a little milk after you’ve poured the tea in your cup. By brewing the tea in water and not #milk, you’ll ensure you still get maximum flavour but it’s softened ever-so-slightly with the milk (sugar optional) 3. Just Milk: There’s a certain element of nostalgia when it comes to “doodh wali chai”. From Share Bazaar in Calcutta to every nook and corner in #Bombay, this kadak chai loaded with sugar is brewed purely in milk until it reduces to 2/3rd its volume. Simply add a spoon of tea leaves to a cup of milk and brew on a medium to high flame. Add in a teaspoon of sugar as well and watch the colour deepen. Want to experiment more in the kitchen?
