salam

I like your very cheerful attitude.  There is something about weddings that make me not refuse desserts, not that I would normally refuse dessert .  It is the  love and happiness on the  faces of the bride & groom that makes me happy and not care about eating.

Aww, that must have been a fun chat, darn - stupid (6/9hr E/W) time difference!! Angry
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooo jalaibi - I used to eat this a lot when i was younger (when the opportunity was there  Wink) but not so much any more, but as you may guess (not to mention all the chocolate) BABA has a tummy  Embarrassed  Sad

I always though Gulab Jamun looked nice, being round and with its sauce, etc, but then I tasted it and it didn't match its appearance, but if I see some, I usually have a bite or two, so I'm getting used to it.

My family (esp the khala's and mamu's) are crazy about the desserts (all year 'round!), but I guess for them the whole weight issue isn't as a big of a problem as it is for us young guys and gals, but hey, for weddings, its all GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD of course!   Cool

So, whom among us is gettin' hitched this summer??? I'm expecting an invite!!  Tongue Grin

Sr. jannah, I'll have one of each, please...


Btw - Thai Desserts are the bomb!

What Br. Khalid was indicating was either a Deep Fried Banana Dessert or Deep Fried Ice Cream (btw, I just discovered that chat right now, how long has this feature been available?)

Anyways back to the main topic in hand...

Deep Fried Banana Dessert is Banana Dipped in Flour Deep Fried to Crispy served with Honey and Scoop of Ice
Cream.

Friend Ice Cream
French Vanilla Ice Cream covered with home made butter and deep fried to a crispy finish.

Sorryyyyyyy Kathyyyyyyy... but look at it this way, if you know they're all equally fat you can eat any one you want Smiley (and now i know 2 is my limit and to make sure i work it off at the mehndi party the night before!!)

the kheer thing i found is the least fattening IF ppl make it with lowfat milk and less sugar...but if they use cream and whole milk and real sugar and lots of it it just balloons to 417!!

i didn't do research on those chocolate fountains.. that's fruit right... gotta be the winners  hungry

and i do agree that weddings should be a EAT what you want FREE card!!!

after all, we wouldn't want to disappoint the bride/groom Smiley

ppl getting married this summer from the board... hmm that would be abdulbasir, shortyroxrazia & i think there was someone else?

I agree.


Having said that, these set of pictures really do kind of scare you a tad!!

Scary iindeed BrKhalid - I'm trying to cut down on the icecream and candy, but its hard when you're studying and you just need some sugar to get that extra energy!
