Whole wheat oats and apple muffins – Healthy and eggless bakes

I love to have this kind of healthy muffins for mid morning or evening snacks. I always use atta, oats or other kinds of healthy flours when I am baking for such kind of regular snacking. Maida or all purpose flour is reserved for cakes during special occasions. I once made muffins using finger millet flour and my kids had them thinking it was chocolate cake. I love to use fruits in my bakes and have used apples before in my cakes. I made muffins this time and it always pairs well with some walnuts. I generally try to avoid…

 

Atte ka halwa recipe – easy sweet recipes – food for kids

When I was young and watched the hindi movies with interest, I used to be quite fascinated with the concept of halwa puri in them and I really used to feel quite tempted with the combo. When in some early 90’s we moved to north india, an acquantaince made this halwa poori and shared it with us. The poori was good as always , but the halwa tasted a quite weird as we were used to the semolina kesaris till then. I never knew atta could be used to make halwa. I came to know about this very recently when…

Coconut cardamom cookies – using wheat flour

I wanted to use the pilsbury multigrain atta in the cookies finally, after successfully using them in cakes, muffins and bread before. I decided to follow the usual nankhatai (an Indian cookie ) recipe which I am so fond of. Cardamom has always been a favourite, gives a lovely aroma to the flour as soon as you add them. I found some dessicated coconut in the pantry and decided to use them as well. That gave a nice crunchy texture and taste to the cookies. I used the granulated white sugar and butter without any substitutions.As I was already using…

 

Multigrain atta savoury buns

I have been having a good time baking using the multigrain atta by pilsbury. I used them in blueberry cupcakes and then a savoury cake and now in savoury buns with good satisfying results. By satisfaction I do not just mean the texture and taste , but also the fact that they are healthy, and most important, a sense of satisfaction when your kid relishes them with joy!!! Ok, savoury buns were in my to-do list ever since I baked bread for the first time. I got addicted to bread making that time and then suddenly I lost interest in…

 

Savoury vegetable cake

I was intending to bake a savoury version of a cake for a very long time. As I always try to make my cakes healthy and of low calories, I wanted my savoury cake to be the same so that we could have a healthy guilt free and delicious snack. And therefore I have incorporated the multigrain atta which contains barley, ragi, soya along with a large proportion of wheat flour. I have found this atta really ideal for baking purposes . The cake has a lovely spongy texture. And then the addition of vegetables of your choice makes it…

 

Blueberry muffins- healthy and beautiful!!

I just cant stop myself buying bluberries whenever I see them at the supermarket. They are not so expensive and too tempting to resist myself buying them even if I dont have anything specific in my mind on how to use them. I had made a pretty cake with them before and now I was eager to make some muffins- and that too something really healthy and guilt free.So using the plain flour was out of question and it had to be wheat. But recently I saw jayasree using the multigrain atta by pilsbury and fortunately I found that in…
