In a medium bowl, beat the cream with an electric beater to soft peak stage.
In a separate bowl, beat the mascarpone, sugar and vanilla, until just combined (don’t overbeat).
Fold ⅓ of the whipped cream into the mascarpone gently so as not to knock out the air and repeat two more times until all incorporated.
Quickly dip each biscuit into the liqueur (don’t soak) and lay them side by side in a 8 inch square or rectangular tin or box lined with cling wrap will the sides hanging out.
Top the biscuit with half the cream mixture, spreading it over evenly with an offset spatula.
Spread most of the berry compote ( reserving a little for decoration) on top.
Repeat the biscuit and mascarpone cream layers again. Dot the remaining berry compote and make a design using a toothpick. Cover it with cling wrap. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight before serving.
Before serving top with the shave chocolate, followed by the raspberries.

Homemade Mixed Berry Compote/Sauce

This is known by different names, berry sauce, berry coulis or berry topping, berry compote is essentially berries cooked down with a little sugar and lemon juice until thick and syrupy.
The berries will break down as you cook them, they won’t hold their shape. This makes it perfectly spoon able.

If you don’t like the seeds, you can easily push the compote through a sieve to separate them from the flesh and in so doing, you have a perfectly smooth berry sauce.
You can use the berry compote while still warm, at room temperature or when cold and there is nearly unlimited number of ways to use it.

This compote can’t be preserved for long periods as it doesn’t contain enough sugar. You’ll need to eat this within 6 - 7 days of making it or freeze it for up to 2 months. This compote is naturally vegan and gluten free too!
This is so quick to make, you can have this vibrant berry compote ready for topping your pancakes, cakes, ice cream and so much more. This thick berry sauce is so versatile and so easy to make.  

Makes ½ Cup

1 Big Cup Frozen Mixed Berries
2 Tablespoons Heaped Sugar or to your taste
A Juice of Half a Lime
½ Teaspoon Vanilla extract
Place the berries, sugar or lemon juice into a medium saucepan over medium flame. As it heats stir until everything is mixed. 
Bring to a simmer and cook stirring every so often for around 10 to 12 minutes or until the juice has thickened. 
Mash the berries with a spoon to make a sauce. 
Stir in the vanilla then pour it into your preserving jar and let it cool to room temperature before lidding and storing in the fridge.

Split Green Moong Khichdi /Chilkewali Moong Dal Khichdi#SundayFunday

This Khichdi is delicious, full of proteins, nutritious, satisfying, nourishing and most of all it's a complete one pot meal.

¾ Cup Split Green Moong/Chilkewali Moong Dal
1¼ Cup Rice
1 Small Onion - 
½ Teaspoon Ginger Paste
½ Teaspoon Chopped Garlic
1½ Teaspoon Cumin Seeds
½ Teaspoon Asafoetida
2" Cinnamon Stick
8-10 Whole Black Peppercorns
¼ Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
Salt To Taste
1 Tablespoon Desi Ghee Or Oil
4½ Cups Water

Wash and soak rice and dal in 2 cups of water for 20 -30 minutes. Wash gently so that the skin from the dal doesn't come off, 2 - 3 times is more than enough. Measure the water because we are going to use the same water to make the khichdi.
In a pan, heat ghee or oil ( I used desi ghee). Add cumin seeds when they, sizzle, add asafoetida, cinnamon and peppercorns, sauté for a second then add the onions. Cook just till onions are translucent. 
Add ginger, garlic, salt and turmeric, sauté for a minute or two.
Add 2½ cups water and bring it to a boil.
Add the soaked rice, dal and the water in which it was soaked in, stir well but carefully, taking care that the grains of rice do not break. Bring this to a rolling boil.
Mix again lightly, cover and cook on low flame for 10-12 minutes or this the rice and dal are fully cooked.
If all the water has been absorbed, the khichdi is done. Give it a light stir so that the dal is rice is mixed well. Cover and cook for a 2 -3 minutes. Switch off the flame and let is sit for another 3 to 5 minute. Before serving, lightly fork to separate the grains.
Serve piping hot topped with desi ghee, yogurt, a fried chilly, chopped onion, a slice of lemon and garlic chutney.
