Special Mole Negro Recipe for Day of the Dead

Known for the flashy and ornamental celebrations, venerating the return of the dead, join in hands to keep up the spirit of “Day of the Dead”. The festival symbolizes the peaceful relationship between pre-hispanic traditions and Christianity. It is accompanied by delectable treat such as Mole negro, Pan de muerto, Candied pumpkin etc. Yummz :P. The funny, scary sweet tooth treat includes Decorated Sugar/Chocolate Skulls and other chocolate recipes. Isn’t it interesting?

I found Mole Negro recipe to be the most interesting one. To achieve different flavors, you need time and effort. But I promise the recipe would be ultimate.

2. Second step is to blend the sauce. Toast the sesame seeds. Add them to the food processor along with almonds, raisins, onion, cinnamon, oregano, and 1/2 cup of the broth. Make the mixture smooth by adding in more broth.

3. Now prepare the sauce. Heat lard or oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the chillies and the above paste (Mole). Stir till oil gets separated. Add in remaining broth and sugar.

Food Ideas for Halloween Party

Here comes Halloween, we are all set for it. Yipee! Ofcourse I will not like to spend my precious time in the kitchen. So here are some TIME SAVING HALLOWEEN PARTY IDEAS…..

Halloween’s Scary Hand

Halloween’s Scary Hand

Halloween Scary Hand (Simple Meatloaf with shape of a hand) – The scary hand is here, it’s burnt, it it looks dreadful, but it’s yummy. Since time will be a constraint that day, I decided to prepare a quick and easy meatloaf, loved by people of all age groups. You can use roasted pearl onions to give an impression of dead nails. Then you can cover up the ground meat with cheese and tomato sauce, it’ll give an impression of flesh and blood, OMG! Nevertheless the ground meat (I prefer beef) must contain your family’s favorite Mediterranean herbs, especially garlic, barbeque sauce etc. to enjoy the taste of the fest.

Grave Pudding

Grave Pudding

Grave Pudding (Chocolate Pudding with your favorite Cookies) – I love chocolate recipes and chocolate pudding is one of my favorites. Chocolate Pudding is one of my favorites. The pudding can be prepared a day before to save time. The pudding can be loaded with your favorite nuts to give impression of the soil. Add the pudding in small glasses. Place Biscuits as shown, they look like tombstone. With chocolate sauce you can write R.I.P. I’m sure kids are gonna love this “Dark Spooky Pudding”.

Spooky Spiders on my Eggs

Spooky Spiders on my Eggs

Spooky Spiders on my Eggs (Deviled Eggs with Black Olives) – This quick and easy recipes is so light and delicious. I always use low-fat mayo for the egg yolks. On the deviled eggs, cut the olives into two equal halves. Make the body of the spider from half of the olive. Slice the other half to give the impression of the spider legs. You can also sprinkle some pepper to give impression of the dust. Though I prefer using low-fat mayo, you can always add mayo that is your family’s favorite. The Deviled Eggs are really devilish here 😛

Devilish Cookies

Devilish Cookies

Devilish Cookies (Pumpkin Cookies) – This is the easiest of all. You need making simple cookies with sugar-spiced pumpkin filling. You can always draw lines like the one on pumpkins with a blunt knife. With the sharp knife you can cut the eyes and mouth. You can also add in some other filling if you want, but I always prefer my family’s favorite Pumpkin Filling. The Scary Devilish Cookies will definitely cheer up the kids.

Halloween is here!!
