homemade marshmallow recipe
My son Charan was playing at his dear friend Shibu’s house when he returned home he wanted to convey something to me.His face was filled with surprise and impatience.He said with all excitement that shibu’s aunt did “homemade marshmallow (s) all by herself.Charan enjoyed marshmallows done there at shibu’s place and he requested me if I can try it for him. When I see these marshmallows in recipe books and stores I would think it will be never a homemade job cause thought it was a complicated recipe to make at home.After he asked me I was searching for the perfect recipe without eggs and found the exact method at mallika’s web space named “vegbowl”. In conclusion it turned out excellent at first go itself mainly charan was totally satisfied.The best part of this recipe is that it gives excellent results without adding any corn syrup or eggs. The first batch made got over in one day because my brothers children where also there to empty the box.Setting time takes at least 4-6 hours or even you can keep it overnight.Once set it will become bouncy when touched.Don’t over do the mixture(beating) if it becomes too stiff then transferring will be too tough and sticky.Thick ribbon stage will be correct for transferring the mixture to tray.
