orange marmalade brownies

Orange marmalade brownies

I have used some jowar/sorghum flour of which I had some in the freezer. I wanted to use something healthy and thinking of whole wheat flour or oats, I finally decided to make with millet. You can try using any kind of millet flour. I have not tried but am sure it would work as long as there is chocolate in it. You can even use whole wheat flour instead of maida. The texture would be a bit more chewy in that case. And please feel free to use any kind of sugar you have. I have used orange marmalade here . I have always loved the combination of orange and chocolate.

Vegetable brown rice patty – easy wholemeal ideas

My son often has stayback after school on certain days. So I need to pack an extra tiffin box on such days. He hardly gets 15 minutes for eating before the class begins.

So for one of these stayback days, I made some wholemeal cutlets. This recipe involves rice and vegetables and made a quick and proper lunch for my son.

 

Khoya cupcakes/Mawa muffins – easy eggless muffins

I had made this muffins almost six months ago. I had got a packet of frozen khoya from mustafa last year with an intention of making some sweets for diwali , but never found the time. Finally when it was nearing the expiry date, I decided to make the muffins which I had bookmarked long ago from a few blogs. I did not want to use eggs or condensed milk in it. So I finally took a recipe from here and made some small changes in the measurements and eliminated a few ingredients.I think I baked the cake a tad more time and it sunk a little in the center. But the cake was denser as I had expected it to be just like we find in the indian bakeries. Its certainly not going to be spongy. But the cake was really good and it involves lots of calories , so I would not
