Misae’s Japanese Dance Coffee

Japanese Honey and Sesame Seeds Coffee

Misae’s Japanese Dance Coffee

 

A Sweetened Japanese Coffee!
What Japanese Coffee??? Will it taste good? Will try out, but where can I find the ingredients?
 
So many questions in your mind, right? See, I could read your mind!!!
 
I had the same questions in my mind. When I went through the ingredients, I just smiled and thought: What just honey and sesame seeds, and Japanese coffee is ready? You won’t believe when I made it, it was like honey, coffee, and sesame drink. In tamil, I would say Thaen Kapi Ellu Kasayam. Sesame seeds dominates the flavor of the coffee.
 
Now, lets talk about the health benefits: Sesame seeds are said to lower cholesterol and blood pressure. It is said that sesame seeds protect the liver from oxidative damage. Honey is a great immunity system builder and energy booster.
 
In Indian cuisines, we use sesame seeds mainly for chutneys and kuzhambu. For chutneys, we need to add coconut. For kuzhambu, we’ll have to eat along with rice. I forgot to mention Ellodarai, which is also a rice item. Usually there is a saying that if we eat Japanese food, we could stay healthier and longer. According to me, if not everything, we could at least try drinking this coffee once a week.
 
Now, If you are a hard-core coffee lover and have a sweet tongue, you would like this coffee. Go for it.
 
If you are a health concerned person, Go for it.
 
If you do not fall into the above categories, do not worry, I would find a tasty coffee that suits your flavor and post it for you soon.
 
This coffee takes 5 mins to make. Very simple and easy preparation. I learned this recipe from Food website.

Nutella Hot Chocolate

Nutella Hot Chocolate

One of my readers had asked me to post some simple Nutella recipes. I was pondering whether I should post some truffle recipes, Nutella beverages or Indian Nutella recipes. My reader clearly requested that the recipe should be simple and easy to make.

 

When I was thinking about the recipe, I thought I have not posted a beverage recipe for a long time. I thought now it is the right time to add one more beverage recipe (Hot Chocolate) to my recipe index would be a good idea. Most of us like Hot Chocolate and kids love them. Sanvi drinks Nutella Hot Chocolate in the evenings. Most of the time, she would love to eat 2 tablespoon of Nutella just like that. I do not have to add it to any recipe to make her eat. Sometimes, if I want her to eat something really healthy then I would some how tweak the Nutella in the recipe. I will post some more Nutella recipes in the future. Meantime, have a sip of Nutella Hot Chocolate!

Preparation Time. 1 minute
Cook Time. 5 minutes
Serves. 1

Ingredients

Nutella – 3 tablespoon
Milk –  1 and 1/3 cup

Preparation

1. Add 1 cup milk and nutella to a saucepan and bring it to a boil over medium heat. Whisk well until the nutella and the milk blends well.

2.  Add the remaining milk and boil for 2 more minutes. Pour the hot chocolate into the serving cup. You can stop in this step. I went a step further and added the hot chocolate to my serving cup. Then I added little milk on top. Finally, whisk until frothy.

Now, Nutella Hot Chocolate is ready!
