It was an unplanned party, given suddenly. There was no planning, no invitations, nothing. That day a packet of eggless Marble Cakes and Nan Khatais was handed to me. Seeing all that I decided to make cold Rose Milk to serve with it. There was cold milk kept in refrigerator, so there was nothing to do much but only I had to take that milk out, add sugar to it and then add the rose concetrate in it. The Rose Milk was ready in minutes. It's my favorite cold drink, especially in summer I used to drink it. It's delightful to take sips of pink coloured cold Rose Milk having fragrance of Rose with crushed Rose Petals in it.
The cold Rose Milk was ready to serve in plain glasses, garnished with Rose Petals and Silver sugar balls (Dragees) on it.
The glasses were became dewy due to the cold milk.
And the Silver sugar balls (Dragees) were looking like tiny shining pearls on red petals of Rose.
The total combination was very pleasent. The sweet scent of Rose with bright light shining on that Rose Milk was the feast to our eyes.
In addition to the cold Rose Milk the eggless Marble Cake having flavours of Vanilla and Strawberry was ready to serve in a dish.
For those who like to eat the cake slices with fruit jam, the cake slices were smeared with mixed fruit jam and the Silver sugar balls (Dragees) spread on it.
Even without any decoration, the colours of cake were looking so attractive that in very less time only some pieces of Marble cake were left and the glasses of cold Rose Milk became empty. But no worry. The empty glasses were washed and filled again with cold Rose Milk and for the cake lovers, another Marble cake having Vanilla and Chocolate flavours was served in deep rectangular dish. That off-white and chocolate coloured combination was so tempting!
Now the earlier cake pieces having flavours of Vanilla and Strawberry were kept in casserole lid for those who hadn't tasted it yet.
With milk and cakes there were Nan Khatais (The Indian Cookies) kept in baby gourmet bowl, ready to eat. The Nan Khatais having different shapes were not only colourful but were garnished nicely with different things on it with beautiful impressions.
Thus the dishes were not only tasty and delightful but colourful also and I am now eagerly waiting for next such occasion.
