Bring Flavour To Your Favourite Festive Sweets With Mixer Grinders

  • 6 September

Indian festivals – be it Diwali or Christmas, Durga Puja or Eid – are always resplendent with the celebration of faith and lots of great food. A marquee feature of all Indian festival food is the delicious spread of sweets.

While we often end up buying them from the store, the satisfaction and taste of a homemade sweet dish are unparalleled. You do not need fancy appliances to make these dishes! With the help of Crompton’s easy to use and high performing mixer grinders like Ameo which give you a 10% finer grinding experience, you can easily make these sweet treats for your loved ones in no time!

While choosing a mixer grinder online for your kitchen, there are a few things that you should know before you make your purchase. Read on to find out!

Wattage

When you select your juicer mixer grinder, always compare the wattage of the different models before you pick one. A higher wattage indicates that the mixer grinder would be able to grind more robust ingredients better. A wattage of anything between 500 to 700 is suitable for daily use!

Speed

Another factor that you should consider is the rotations per minute (RPM) of the mixer grinder. The speed of the mixer grinder usually ranges between 18,000 to 25,000 RPM.

Jars and Their Sizes

Most standard mixer grinders come with 2 or 3 jars of various sizes and with lids. There are generally two dry grinders and one wet grinder. Many of these dry grinders, as well as wet grinders,  bought online will also have ergonomically designed handles that would allow you to lift a heavy jar without hurting your hand.

Blades

The hero element of the mixer grinder is the blade. The best choice would be stainless steel blades that are not susceptible to corrosion or oxidation. A 304-grade stainless steel blade which can retain its sharpness for an extended period is ideal for most kitchens. 

Crompton mixers come packed with all these features and more which make it an ideal option for preparing a wide variety of Indian sweets in the most hygienic way possible. These treats are a great way to spread the joy and divine aura of festivals.

Let us take a look at some of them, shall we? To get you started, here are two delicious Indian sweets recipes that can be made using a Crompton mixer grinder at home. These recipes will need you to use the wet grinders!

Pumpkin Payasam

This is a delicious sweet dish made using pumpkins. The ingredients needed are chopped yellow pumpkin, full cream milk, sugar, saffron, cardamom powder, ghee and roasted almond flakes for garnish.

To start with, cook the pumpkin in milk till it becomes soft. Next, use the mixer grinder to blend this mixture into a smooth puree. 

Transfer the puree to a pan and add in the saffron strands. Let the mixture simmer for 10-15 mins until it becomes thick. Mix in the cardamom powder and take it off the heat.

Garnish with your roasted almond flakes and a dollop of ghee and your payasam is ready!

Paneer Barfi 

Take your paneer out and soak it in hot water for 30 minutes. Remove it and then pat dry. You can save precious time and use an electric kettle to heat the water needed for soaking the paneer. 

Next, cut the paneer into small pieces and blitz it in the mixer grinder to get a crumbly consistency. After this, knead it into a smooth dough while adding mawa and sugar in.

Line a tray with butter paper and transfer this mixture into it and spread it out evenly. You can garnish with nuts, cardamom and saffron. Cut the dish into pieces and refrigerate. Remove it once cooled and dig in. Simple, right?

In conclusion, with these easy recipes and Crompton’s wide range of mixer grinders, you can savour the sweetness of homemade treats at home!
