Creamy Macaroni Cheese

If you are a Pasta lover, then you will definitely love this recipe. The rich taste of cheddar cheese, chicken and the creamy sauce make it so tempting to resist. Its an all time favourite fo kids too!

2 cups macaroni
1 cup chicken boiled and shredded (you can also take boiled minced meat instead)
3 cups water
150g butter
1 onion peeled and finely diced
¼ cup plain flour
2 cups milk
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2 tsp Black pepper powder
Salt to taste

Cook macaroni in boiling water for about 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.Boil the chicken in water until tender and then shred into small pieces. Fry the shredded chicken with a pinch of salt and black pepper powder and 1 tsp butter in a frying pan.

Melt butter in a pan and fry onion in it till the onion gets whitish and soft. Stir in the flour and add a little milk to make a smooth paste. Gradually add remaining milk and keep on stirring to make a smooth paste. Cook for about 1 minute. Stir in cheese,chicken, salt and pepper and remove from heat. It will start to thicken. The sauce is ready. Add this sauce to cooked macaroni. Stir thoroughly and put on low flame for 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through.

Note: If you are using minced meat, then boil it in water with a pinch of black pepper powder and salt. You dont need to fry it again.

Strawberry Smoothie

Strawberries are in season and who would not love to eat the sweet juicy deep red strawberries. They always seem so tempting to me especially when they have a dark red colour. But today, I thought of not eating them right away but to make something more tastier from them.

To make 1 glass, you need:

4 to 5 stawberries
1 scoop strawberry ice cream
2 tsp sugar
3/4 glass of milk

First add stawberries with tops removed and half of the milk in blender. Shake it well so that the strawberries mix up well with the milk. Now add the remaining ingredients and blend well. Take a glass with some ice cubes and pour the smoothie in it. Chill and enjoy!
