Maida matri/thattai- diwali snack recipes

Hello to all my lovely loyal readers after a super long time who actually happen to see my blog time to time and enquire with me regarding the updates. I actually wanted to post this before diwali and I started my post almost 20 days back, but could not find time to do it. But now as I am finding some time, I have a few posts in my drafts which I will try to post in the next few days before my upcoming trip to India. I look forward to do some serious blogging next year unlike this year…

Indian bakery style honey cake

Recently, I was just getting nostalgic about my school days at pune. I was around 7 years around that time. There was this tiny cute bakery on my way back from school with full of yummy colourful goodies. Everyday as I walked back home holding my moms fingers, I use to be tempted and craved for each of those yums. This particular pink colour muffins covered with sweetened coconut fascinated me a lot. On some rare occasions, Mom used to buy the goodies. We ate with relish and enjoyed it to the core though if it was today , I…

I am trying to make it more organised and more better to get motivated to be regular to blogging.Cooking has been going on and it has been full fledged healthy cooking. I do have some recipes in my drafts which I would like to get done with and then start working on other recipes.

Vegetable brown rice patty – easy wholemeal ideas

My son often has stayback after school on certain days. So I need to pack an extra tiffin box on such days. He hardly gets 15 minutes for eating before the class begins. He eats very slowly and so I usually pack something which can be easily and quickly eaten. Generally I make stuffed parathas and roll it up for him. So for one of these stayback days, I made some wholemeal cutlets. This recipe involves rice and vegetables and made a quick and proper lunch for my son. They were delicious too. You can add some crumbled paneer or…

Khoya cupcakes/Mawa muffins – easy eggless muffins

I had made this muffins almost six months ago. I had got a packet of frozen khoya from mustafa last year with an intention of making some sweets for diwali , but never found the time. Finally when it was nearing the expiry date, I decided to make the muffins which I had bookmarked long ago from a few blogs. I did not want to use eggs or condensed milk in it. So I finally took a recipe from here and made some small changes in the measurements and eliminated a few ingredients.I think I baked the cake a tad more time and it sunk a little in the center. But the cake was denser as I had expected it to be just like we find in the indian bakeries. Its certainly not going to be spongy. But the cake was really good and it involves lots of calories , so I would not

Eggless whole wheat almond cookies – easy eggless cookies recipes

Its almost 5-6 months now and today I finally decided to post. Things keep me busy,and when I do find time, I cant bring myself to do the process of clicking, editing and publishing the pictures and the posts. It seems like a elaborate activity. Though I keep getting kind enquiries from my friends and bloggers about why I am missing in action nowadays. So finally I decided to leave all my priorities behind and publish a post. Cooking has been happening , but not much of baking. So perhaps when I start blogging , I will restart baking too.

Whole wheat spicy foccacia recipe – easy bread baking recipes

Baking has not really been happening at my place lately. I had made this foccacia bread a couple of month ago with some soup. It was delicious. I have posted another recipe for foccacia sometime back. I had used all purpose flour. I had baked foccacia for the first time and it turned out really good. So the next time, I wanted to try it with whole wheat flour/atta. Foccacia is a very forgiving recipe and even beginners can try this bread recipe as it is not easy to go wrong with this one. After this attempt, I even tried…

Caramel cake recipes – Baking recipes

I have been wanting to try this caramel cake recipe from a very long time. But somehow due to my busy schedule and also partly because of my laziness , I have been postponing it. Infact I was not baking at all after repeated requests from my kids. So finally I made it last friday as I had some free time due to school holiday declared because of the haze. I have a few posts in my drafts which I have delayed posting for so many months already, but this cake was super special. It was so delicious that I…

Corn dhokla recipe – easy snacks recipes

I had made this some ages ago for an evening snack and we had gorged on it and loved it.I buy corn many times as my kiddo likes it. But I often forget about it leaving it in the refigerator perhaps for a fortnight. It happened this time until I finally thought of making bhutte ka kees. But thinking of the meagre amount it will be after all the process, I dropped the plan and thought of making this dhoklas. I referred to a number of recipes in the net. Nothing special about the recipe, its almost same as we…
