Hayagreeva

This week I will be posting March festival recipes i.e. recipes of dishes made for festivals that fall in the month of March. Since the most popular festivals are Gudi Padwa and Ugadi, I will be posting one recipe for Gudi Padwa, one Karnataka recipe for Ugadi and one from Andhra where Ugadi is also…

Simple Whole Wheat Crepes

   For the third and final day, I wanted to do a desert / sweet dish and so I tried the French goey chocolate sponge cake from Priya’s blog but I managed to burn the top of the cake. Though it tasted good, it was in no condition to be clicked and so I switched…

Flourless Mug Cake

    On top of my to be finished list is peanut butter. The daughter is its lone admirer in the house and since she can’t finish a large amount in a short time, I figured I will try using it for stuff other than bread. So here is a quick and easy mug cake with…

Quick Banana Ice cream

  It’s the same situation. Again! Every time I settle down, start liking the city, figure out my way through the place without Google maps and think, ‘I can get used to this’, the husband would tell me those words – ” we have to move”. So we are moving. Again. It will be our…

Apple Crisp

Samba Rava Payasam

Sesame seeds Chikki

    It feels awesome to be back after a break, albeit a short one. Chikki is a delight in many ways – it’s very easy and quick to make, it’s very healthy and nutritious and to top it all it is simply awesome to eat.  Having lived in Mumbai, I have had more than my…

Not just another banana bread

  Banana bread is one of those bakes which has a million recipes each as awesome as the next. But some of them do stand apart like this one. The fun part is it doesn’t need oil, butter, sugar or wheat flour. So yay!   And the not so good part is, atleast for me, it…
