Cheesy broccoli bites /balls – Kids snack recipes

There was a time when I used to cook a lot reffering to cookbooks. But then recently, I never found time. I used to bring home a lot of cookcooks especially baking books from the library. I would even copy down a few recipes and never saw it again. I totally stopped bringing books and I stopped buying them too. But recently when we went to a nearby mall, there was a old books sale going on. It was quite surprising to see a lot of cookbooks by Indian authors. I found a book by Nita mehta which contained snack…

 

Broccoli paratha recipe – easy indian bread recipes

I do buy broccoli quite frequently, not because its a favourite at home. But as its quite healthy and we get really good fresh ones here that I am quite tempted to buy it everytime.

Pasta pomodoro

We vegetarians have very few options at the pizza hut here in Singapore. But we are quite happy to note that they have added vegetarian pastas too from a couple of months. My son loves pizzas and pastas. Last time we had pasta with pomodoro sauce and mushrooms and he just loved it. It was all over in no time. Then we had pasta pomodoro at the pastamania too. My son loved it as usual, though I liked the pizza hut one better. So I thought of recreating this at home especially now when the term holidays are going on….

When my grandmom made the popular tirunelveli halwa for creative saga during my trip to India, she also gave me a bag of wheat berries asking me to try making it again when I go back to Singapore.

So now when the blogging marathon is happening, the idea of making soup with it struck me as I am trying to use unusual and new ingredients for the soup to make the event more meaningful and interesting.I browsed the net to see…

 

Broccoli with corn and peas- Salad

Just like soups , I had been ignoring salad from my diet for a very long time. To be more precise, salad was a rare occurence on our dinner table. But the healthy diet awareness which I have been hearing about in the blogosphere, magazines and television and my goal to lose weight has made me include them in my diet. I had definitely cut down the inclusion of too much fats in food, having more of low carb foods and more helping of pulses and vegetables. But the inclusion of raw food which contains the maximum amount of fibre…

 

How did I have my maggi one day?

With broccoli …. Another post which has been in my draft for sometime. Broccoli is something which is really healthy and should be an essential part of your diet. I buy them almost every week and use it in a soup or mixed veg . curry or pulao etc etc, though am not really too fond of its taste. I thought of experimenting with it this time instead of usual thing. And combining it with maggi came to my mind. Maggi noodles is always a favourite and saviour during those days when you dont feel like cooking anything great. Of…
