Tres Leches Cake [Three Milk Cake] – Mexican Cake/400th Post

This Tres Leches Cake is a special Mexican cake, I did for my girl’s birthday as an exotic treat and also to celebrate my 400th post. I thank each and every one of you to have encouraged me, supported me and helped me reach to this point. Before going into tres leches recipe, I would love to share a few things about this dense, moist, delectable and fantastic cake. Tres Leches Cake is a sponge cake, soaked in three different kinds of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk and heavy cream. This tres leches cake does not use butter, but it is a very light cake, with lots of air bubbles. It has a unique texture, despite of being soaked in the three milk  mixture, it does not have soggy consistency.

Chicken Fajita – Mexican Delight

Yesterday I posted a very easy and a quick Mexican/Spanish rice. Today I am posting another Mexican delight – Chicken Fajita[Pronounced as fahHEEtah]. Fajita is a Mexican term or Tex –Mex for little meat (chicken/beef) strips, grilled and served with mexican rice, onions, bell peppers, sour cream, slasa and guacamole. The chicken/meat fajita is served sizzling hot in an iron skillet to our table in restaurants. The sizzling sound, hot steam and wonderful aroma will just want us to complete the whole skillet. These fajitas are wonderful party food and when you have lot of friends come over to your place.

Mexican Rice/Spanish Rice

I am very fond of Mexican food, may be because it is spicy and hot like the South Indian food. Living outside India I have got wonderful opportunities to try different cuisines in these past 10 years. Whenever I get a choice of cuisines, my first choice will be Mexican followed by Thai food, and then Italian.

Spanish rice is also known as Mexican rice is a very common side dish in Northern Mexico. In Mexico this rice dish is referred to as “Arroz” which translates to “rice”. In Northern Mexico the rice is cooked with chicken broth, tomato, onion and garlic, it is the Mexican way to flavor the rice. So the “Mexican Rice” is nothing but the rice is cooked in the Mexican style.  Today I made Mexican rice and Chicken Fajitas for lunch and chicken fajitas is coming up in my next post.
