Dryfruit Cardamom Cookies

After that spicy coriander bread, today is for the sweet and simple cardamom cookies. I am not much of a sweet bake person. I love baking breads (too obvious, huh?) and other savory dishes but not so much of cookies or cakes. But surprisingly my cookies are reasonably popular whenever I bake them. I guess I should credit the recipe more and less my skills … Continue reading Dryfruit Cardamom Cookies

Rulavachi Bhakri | Mangalore style Rava Dosai

I cannot believe how fast this month is passing by. When I began this mega marathon, I only had a rough draft of a list of dishes I wanted to make. I figured that dosais are easy and can be made on a day to day basis. I did not realise that so many of them were the soak and ferment kind but I managed. … Continue reading Rulavachi Bhakri | Mangalore style Rava Dosai

Rose scented Hazelnut Cookies

This is my third and final post on New Year Challenges. I have been planning forever to experiment on ideas and recipes instead of adapting other recipes. Though I am sure most flavour combinations have already been discovered and perfected, there is a thrill and satisfaction of discovering something on your own instead of simply adapting another recipe. I used to do that a lot … Continue reading Rose scented Hazelnut Cookies

Whole Wheat Bran & Seeded Bread

All my life, I have been a staunch supporter of all purpose flour when it comes to baking bread. It makes a lovely light loaf and easily beats all other flours in terms of taste. Call it destiny or old age, of late I have started enjoying whole wheat loaves a lot. I love the chewy texture and the flavour it brings along. Though I … Continue reading Whole Wheat Bran & Seeded Bread

Khobz dyal Zraa’ – Moroccan Wheat Bread

Another awesome part of baking bread is the scoring of the dough before baking. Scoring is simply slashing the dough top so that we are able to control where the bread expands from. When you score the bread with a pretty design it adds a delightful artistic side to the loaf, a treat to the eyes and you are in awe of it even before … Continue reading Khobz dyal Zraa’ – Moroccan Wheat Bread

Lemon Tea Cake

Some recipes you bookmark to try later and others tempt you so much that you rush to your kitchen, make it at the earliest and rest only after you have sunk your teeth in a slice. This dish is one of the latter. It was made by Valli earlier in this Bake-a-thon and I saw it and have been salivating ever since. To add to … Continue reading Lemon Tea Cake

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 to this simple crepe recipe which can be breakfast or … Continue reading Simple Whole Wheat Crepes

Whole wheat Pancakes

I typically need instant breakfast ideas on a Monday morning. That’s the day we are most likely to oversleep, run around in circles trying to find stuff and that’s the day the daughter decides to wake up earlier than her usual time and demand a fifteen minute cuddle.┬áSo instant breakfast for me is what I can get ready between the time the husband wakes up … Continue reading Whole wheat Pancakes
