When I had some ragi dosa batter in hand, I went ahead and made some of this dhoklas. The family really enjoyed them .
Kids were amazed to the see the beautiful red colour pasta unlike the usual white pasta they have always relished till now. Though I do make different kinds of pasta sauces nowadays, they are not fond of all the varieties . But this one was different.
When I visited kailas parbat for the first time, something which really piqued my interest were their chole baturas. Of course, it was not the first time, I was coming across or having chole baturas. To tell you the fact, I have had the authentic ones during our stay in Delhi. I have devoured different varieties of them and have really enjoyed them to the core. But here in Kailas parbat, they had something different to offer.
Today morning, I was cutting a whole pumpkin for making olan. I had seperated the fibrous portion along with the seeds at the center and planning to discard it as we usually do. But my grandmom who is visiting us suggested that we could make chutney with it. This really impressed me and I immediately thought of doing a blog post.
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.
