jam muffins

Jam swirled muffins recipe

It looks so appealing with the jam on the top and kids will surely enjoy them. So that day I decided to make the normal way without any healthy ingredients. I used all purpose flour and granulated white sugar. I used only half a cup of sugar and it was okay for us. There is sweetness of the jam too.

sprinkle cake

Sprinkle cake recipe using whole wheat flour

I have seen in a couple of blogs featuring them and they looked quite tempting. I wouldn’t call this cake completely healthy. I have used an egg and the regular granulated sugar and the usual ingredients. Except that I have added more of whole wheat flour and a little of plain flour. But for a more whiter and a spongier texture, you can consider using plain flour completely.

Garlic ,tamarind and jaggery is added to suppress the pungent fiery taste of the red chillies. But it is still very spicy. I love to have it with my curd rice , chapatis or dosas sometimes.

This is a very easy recipe and its my go to recipe whenever I don’t have much time for cooking. This does not really require any side dish as such though you can serve a side dish of your choice if you like it that way. Papads or chips should be a good choice to serve with too!

 
chickpea salad

Tangy Chickpea salad
