Balehannu Dose|Banana Dosai

For the second day of the mega marathon, I have the Balehannu Dose or the banana dosai. Thanks to this marathon, I discovered the amazing variety of dosais made in Karnataka. I have been consciously trying out more local food since I moved back to Bangalore two years ago but my dose knowledge was kind…

Sourdough Banana & Zucchini Bread

Another resolution I have is to improving my sourdough baking. I wanted to bake a sourdough bread loaf but the winter has been particularly cold this time and my starter is taking ages to show any signs of activity. So I ditched that idea and decided to bake a sourdough quick bread with bananas and…

Banana Flittas

One advice I would like to give people who are yet to be married is that to look for someone with similar taste in food. A surprisingly lot of time and effort in your life is with regard to food – buying, making, eating. If you don’t agree on that, it is not going to…

Banana Honey Muffins

Life is full of wonderful little surprises. One such is this banana honey muffin I made. I needed to have muffins for my continental breakfast spread I made for the Thali theme last month. I was in a tearing hurry because I need to finish cooking and clicking by 10 in the morning else the…

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…

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…

Baked Oats and Banana 

    This recipe is probably one of the best things that happened to me. Really! One, it is a healthy way to use up the overripe bananas instead of drowning them in butter and sugar to make banana bread. I know, they taste heavenly but I have overripe bananas on a weekly basis. Soooo not…

Cocoa Banana Mug Cake

  I am sure overripe bananas are an issue of national concern. I mean, if I was still in India I would have blamed Modi for it and returned the picture book I received in kindergarten for best handwriting.  But thankfully the situation is not as bad. There are mug cakes to the rescue. If…

Dragon fruit Nutella Smoothie

I am discovering that creating a dish with Nutella is as easy as it is tough. It’s easy because Nutella pairs well with almost anything and gives it a beautiful chocolate-y touch. But it’s tough because Nutella hardly ever goes anywhere from the jar except directly into my mouth. It’s as if my hand, on…

Gulab Jamun Mix Muffins

I write this blog post mainly for two reasons – 1. Blogging Marathon time again. yay! 2. More importantly, to serve me as an eternal reminder – Never trust the Husband with grocery shopping. Like never ever! We travel 100 kms once a month to the ‘nearest’ Indian grocery store. The scene is usually a…
