Spicy Buns

For the third and final day of the ‘Roll and fold like a bun’ theme, I have some spicy buns. I was so tempted to call these quick buns because these are made with yeast. After the sourdough spree I had, the fact that I can actually complete the bread from start to finish in…

Flavoured Grissini

So I am on a mini oats bake-a-thon now. I like using oats for its texture and not so much for its so called ‘health reasons’. I have got so tired of ‘health food’ that I now consciously avoid anything that claims to be healthy. Its ridiculous really how we have stopped enjoying food for…

Spicy Coriander Bread

It is December and so it is Bake-a-thon which is a legitimate justifiable reason to turn on the oven every couple of days to post baked dishes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I wanted to have a proper theme and everything but the family is in a super non co-operative mode and so I could…

Veggie Calzone

For the second day of the Global Cuisine theme, I have another bread from Italy – the calzone. It is a veggie calzone and the perfect way to sneak in all veggies that your family would not eat. Calzones are pizzas with the toppings used as stuffings. Why I like this bread? A healthier version…
