Whenever I find time, I try to make some traditional snacks for them to know and enjoy atleast a few. One of these days I remembered this sesame ladoos we used to have during the winter season especially during sankranthi in maharashtra. Its very easy to put together the crushed sesame seeds and jaggery,requires less ingredients and and very less of your time,totally my kind of recipe!!!
This time I decided to use the basil pesto sauce about which I had mentioned about in my last post.I had had this basil pesto pasta in an Italian restaurant few months ago and liked the taste. But my kids found the taste a bit weird and are yet to acquire a taste for basil pesto.
As I already mentioned before , breakfast is definitely an important meal at our place. I try to make our breakfast quite filling, healthy and tasty especially for the kids so that they have it quickly and go to their schools without making much of a fuss. I make sandwiches atleast twice a week and you can also find yummy and interesting sandwich recipes here.
I have also been making pancakes. I use healthy and different ingredients each time. I normally use whole wheat flour or oats. And then , I drizzle with some sugarcane syrup before I serve. This syrup was given by a friend and it has been a great thing. We have totally enjoyed it. My kids also love these pancakes and eat them in a jiffy without making a fuss leaving a satisfied me!!!
It turned out quite good and delicious though it wasn’t too moist and had a dry crumb but soft in the inside.The colour was good too!! It tasted good and my kids had them too!! You can try this out if you love fruit and nut cakes.
This time decided to use peanuts and a bit of coconut milk for a different flavour. It definitely tasted delicious and went really well with the phulkas I had made for dinner. You can adjust the proportion of peanuts and coconut milk to suit your taste.
I had made this smoothie few months ago when I had bought some pomegranates which were not at all sweet. My kids love pomegranate. But this particular variety which I had got from the supermarket were huge and looked juicy with a beautiful red colour. But they were not sweet at all. So I decided to make a smoothie. I and my hubby had it for breakfast . It was yummy and filling too!! It was a good way of using up the fruits.
I want to spend some time doing healthy cooking and bring up some healthy baking recipes.I really hope to change their diet pattern. So that should also give me opportunity to blog more of this recipes. I have already been doing this and I keep sharing the pictures in my instagram too. So please do keep visiting and continue to encourage me with your comments.
So here comes the brownies recipe with carrots,beetroots and nuts. DO try and you will love it.
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…
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…
