This smoked chicken recipe is a whole chicken coated in homemade spice rub, then slow smoked to tender juicy perfection. This is some of the best chicken I’ve ever eaten, it’s full of flavor and couldn’t be any easier to make.
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
4 teaspoon orange juice
2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 whole chicken
• In a medium size bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Rub the seasoning over the both halves of the chicken. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
• Place wood chips in the smoking tray of the grill. If you don’t have this option you can make a packet out of aluminum foil and punch a few holes in the top of it with a fork and place directly on the hot coals.
• Place the chicken on a hot grill over medium-heat with the meat side down. Grill over the wood chips for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Cover, this will keep in the smoke and to prevent oxygen from igniting the smoking wood. After 30 minutes turn the chicken to its opposite side.

Custard powder is nothing but corn starch or corn flour with flavoring ingredients added to it. So If you are not accessible to custard powder, you can make your own using corn flour (corn starch) or arrowroot powder.
To flavor the custard, just use vanilla extract or vanilla bean pod. To enhance the flavor of custard you can also use 3 to 4 tbsp dry milk powder.
INGREDIENTS (1 CUP = 240ML )

• 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
Fruits of your choice (I have added👇🏻)

• When the milk turns hot, pour 2 tbsp of the mix to the hot milk. Stir it until well incorporated.
• Repeat adding little more and stir well. Pour the rest of the mix and stir well to prevent lumps.
• Keep stirring and cook on a low to medium heat until the custard turns thick.
• Switch off the stove and whisk the custard well to make it smooth. Cover immediately.

Ever wondered why we started drinking coffee? Or how it become a beloved brew all over the world? Well, we’ve got the answers😍
The history of coffee
Legend has it that a 9th-century Ethiopian goatherd discovered coffee when his goats became unusually energetic after eating what looked like red cherries. He took the fruit to a holy man, who then made the world’s first coffee. And the rest is history.
As the original home of coffee, it’s no surprise that Ethiopia produces some of the world’s finest. What makes Kaffa special is that it’s harvested from trees growing in the wild – just as it was discovered.
Mocha is one of the first cultivated coffees and is named after the Yemeni port of Mocha, from where it was exported around the world. It’s grown in the mountains near the Red Sea using traditional methods.
Jamaica Blue Mountain
As its name suggests, this coffee is grown in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica. High altitude, rich, volcanic soil, low rainfall and dense cloud cover give this coffee a mild flavour and lack of bitterness.
Kona can only be cultivated on the slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa on the Big Island of Hawaii. Sunny mornings, overcast afternoons and mild nights create the perfect growing conditions.
When Coffee Meets Culture:
Coffee houses started in Cairo, Mecca and Damascus, where men would gather to socialise and play games. Eventually, they were popping up in Europe and became popular with intellectuals who would discuss Enlightenment ideals and brew revolutions. Today, coffee shops have become a part of everyday life all over the world.
From Bean To Brew
Before becoming a brew, coffee is carefully farmed and delicately roasted. There are different kinds of coffee and different ways to roast them, each of which results in a unique taste and distinct flavour.
Coffee beans are actually the seeds of cherries from a coffee plant. The cherries grow along the stem and take about nine months to mature into bright red coffee cherries. Once ripe and ready, they are hand-picked by coffee farmers, who then extract the beans by either soaking them in water for a few days, or sun drying for a few weeks.
Arabica Coffee Beans
Arabica is the first coffee to ever be cultivated. It accounts for more than 60% of the world’s coffee production and is also the most popular. It has a soft, sweet taste with ideal acidity.
Robusta Coffee Beans
Robusta is more robust in many ways. It has more caffeine and antioxidants, and resists disease better than Arabica. In flavour, it has a lower acidity, with more body and bitterness.
Green Coffee Beans
After harvesting, coffee beans are called ‘green coffee beans’ because of a tinge that develops during drying. At this point, they smell and taste nothing like coffee. They need to be roasted first.
Decaffito Coffee Beans
Instead of removing caffeine from the bean, farmers are breeding new Decaffito plants whose cherries contain no caffeine at all.
White Coffee Beans
White coffee beans are under-roasted to give the bean a lighter colour and the brew a smoother taste.
Espresso Coffee Beans
You can use any type of coffee to make an espresso, but medium to dark roasts are usually better as they reduce the acidity created during the espresso brewing method.
Ready To Roast
Raw, green beans need to be roasted before they can make a brew. During roasting, the coffee beans expand and change colour. They turn to yellow as they absorb heat; brown as they lose water content; and darker still as they secrete their oils. The longer they roast, the darker they become and the more flavour they release.
A light roast has a mild and toasted grain taste with a light body, pronounced acidity and no oil on the surface of the beans. The lightest roast is called Light Cinnamon.
A medium roast will have more body and less acidity than a light roast, but also has no oil on the bean surfaces. It’s commonly known as American Roast.
A full roast is dark, full-bodied and with a well-developed aroma. A Full City Roast is strong, whereas a Viennese Roast is rich brown in colour and slightly oily.
High roasts are the strongest and their smoky-sweet flavour can also be bitter. French Roast beans are almost black. Italian Roast beans are black, caramelised and oily.
Mix It Up
Coffee blends are created when you combine different types of beans or flavours. You can roast coffee beans with flavours like vanilla or hazelnut, or add flavours during the brew.
Hope you all doing good and really had a great new year like me♥️

Today let us know how to make a super soft sponge cake/butter sponge cake recipe by cooked dough method!!!
Many of my friends do not have measuring cups at their home. so they requested me to measure the quantity of the flour and sugar by the tablespoon.
So here I am given the measurement in a tablespoon.
For Egg Yolks:
Egg yolks- 4 nos
Butter – 5 tablespoon
Milk – 8 tablespoon

Once the butter is melted in the milk, take it out from the stove and add sugar, egg yolks, and all-purpose flour give it a nice mix and keep it aside.
Add cream of tartar and sugar little by little into the egg whites and beat until stiff peak formed
Now fold the white batter into the yolk batter. Don’t over mix just give them a nice fold.

pour enough hot water in a larger pan and place the cake pan over it.no need to preheat the oven.bake for 45 minutes at 150-degree Celsius.
Prepare the whipped cream. Pour the heavy cream into the chilled bowl and use an electric or stand mixer to beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed until the cream starts to thicken. Slowly add the powdered sugar and continue beating on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spread it on the top of the cake.
Turn the heat under the double boiler on to low. As soon as the chocolate chips begin to melt immediately, Stir constantly until the chocolate chips are almost completely melted, then remove them from the heat and decorate it.

Muhallebi is a milk pudding that has legendary origins dating to Sassanid Persia. The basic ingredients are rice, sugar, rice flour and milk. In the Middle Ages, muhallebi and its European counterpart blancmange were made with shredded chicken. The traditional recipe is still common in Turkey.
ingredients: Milk – 1 cup Sugar – to taste Rice flour – 1/3 cup Cornstarch – 2 tbs Rosewater – 1 tbs Pistachio – 2 tbs Almonds – 2 tbs
Method Mix rice flour and corn flour in a bowl. Add about ½ cup milk to it and whisk to avoid lump formation. Heat the remaining milk in a heavy bottom pan. Add sugar, stir and bring it to a gentle boil on low heat. Gradually add the rice flour mixture, whisking continuously. The mixture starts to thicken as it cooks. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add rose water and almonds and mix well. Take it off the heat and cool slightly. Pour the mixture in serving bowls and cool completely and then chill in the refrigerator for 1-2hours. Cover with cling film so that skin does not form on the top. Serve garnished with pistachios!
