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…

 

South indian mixture recipe – Diwali snack / savoury recipes

Last year , I had posted a chiwda/mixture recipe which is mostly made in Maharashtra. I find it easier to make that and have been making that almost every year during diwali. This time I asked my grandmother for diwali snacks and sweets suggestions. Among the sweets , she suggested boondi ladoo as she had taught me last year to make them. But I still dont feel confident about making them. She then asked me to try badusha. I have never made that , so I decided to make a small amount of it as it sounded a little simple…

 

Pineapple halwa – easy Indian sweet recipes

I have always loved pineapples and love to use them in my cooking or baking. I have made pineapple kesari with semolina a couple of times before. But I wanted to try a dessert just with pineapple. I found a number of recipes in the net. But I made a very simple one. But I have given a few different options in the notes below. I made this as prasadam during one of the days of navaratri. I made it quite late in the evening, and so the poor quality of the hurriedly taken images. I will try to update…

Mooli ka paratha/radish paratha – Indian flatbread recipes

I find paratha is the best way to sneak the vegetables into your family meals. Radish is something I rarely buy as I make only radish sambar with it. But after making this parathas some couple of weeks back , I have started buying them quite regularly. That is whenever I visit the Indian shops. I love the long slender ones rather than the fat big ones though the latter ones are a less pungent. I usually try to incorporate the vegetables directly into the flour while making the dough. But nowadays I make the dough in advance as I…

I had made this burfi last Diwali. I love to share small boxes of home made sweets with my friends during any occasions.

How to make oats pav or oats buns– easy bread baking recipe -oats recipes

Bread baking is really addictive. When you bake once, you feel like trying out more recipes. I had got a packet of bread flour which was lying in my pantry for a long time nearing the expiry date. My kids keep me so busy nowadays especially the one year old that I really don’t find to do anything exclusive apart from the everyday normal cooking. But then I decided to finish my bread flour before I have to trash the whole packet with a heavy heart. So I first baked the cinnamon buns. Then a sandwich loaf. Then I made…

That gave me an inspiration to bake more goodies in future. One fine day, when I was going through the photos in foodgawker, My…
