Gujarati Khandvi

Homemade Khandvi

I made this Khandvi on Monday Morning for breakfast. I was too lazy to do the proper garnishing but I am in forever love with Khandvi and finally I got the perfect proportions from this food blog: http://www.rakskitchen.net/2013/11/khandvi-recipe-indian-snack-recipes.html

Garlic Roles

Pull apart Garlic roles

20131120_202709These are Garlic Roles I tried yesterday night for the first time and they turned out to be just great. Major hit on my fb profile and at home. Best part is I can alter the filling/flavours according to my liking. Teamed up with some healthy pasta for dinner.

This is the quick Maggie one but I am in love with my Soup cups. And this winters I am gonna try as many soups as possible.

Veg Noodles and Manchurian

The past weekend was all about cooking in full swing, made Chinese – my version of noodles and Manchurian. The Manchurian were a delight even to me. The husband was also beaming with happiness. Sorry for the sad color of the gravy, at the last moment I realized I was running out of Soya Sauce.

Home Made Pizza from Scratch

Home Made Pizza from Scratch

Was a healthy version with less/no cheese and the base was of whole wheat floor. You would what’s a Pizza wihtout cheese, but when you have some dozen extra kgs hanging on your body, that’s what pizza becomes. It tasted yum without doubt.

These were all the veggies that went into a kind of Pulao that I picked from my MIL. She makes a super tasty spicy pulao and I tried it this time. It was such a hit that during Diwali break at my in – laws I made it thrice in just ten days. I forgot to click the pic of the end product :(.

Eggless Chocolate Cake

Eggless Chocolate Cake

Made this for two of my favorite cousins when they were visiting me sometime in June, this was for their special achievements and making us super proud. The elder one got into IIM – L and the younger one into BITS – Pilani :). Recipe from another of my favorite blogger: http://hungryandexcited.com/blog/2012/09/eggless-butterless-chocolate-cake/ and I cant wait to go to Goa sometime soon and taste her baking goodies.

I had some more pictures to post but the last one reminds me that I am getting super late in baking a special something today :). Will let you know how it went.


I have been baking !!!

Three baking experiments in past ten days and shall I say all successful ones.

First thing first, a big thank you to techie2mom for running this wonderful food blog and also taking pains and writing this baking for beginners. This not only saved a lot of TBH’s money (I was going to buy an oven) but also gave my baking experiments a new momentum. The post explains in detail the nuances of baking using a microwave and I am only too happy with the results.

So what I have been up to?

First I baked this, a basic eggless sponge cake using a recipe shared by the latest guest at home (yup there are some god send guests too)


Only when I cut it, I realized why a sponge cake is called a sponge cake :). It turned out to be amazing.

Then I tried my hands in some bread making, a very small portion without even having a loaf tin but still managed to turn out to be good enough to give way to more efforts in this direction. Inspired by Haathi’s Masala Bread but not exactly replicating it. Sorry I don’t have pictures of it to share now.

And then the cherry on cake or what ever, Haathi again from Hungry and Excited posted this recipe of Eggless Guilt free Golden Cake and I did not need anything else, I was so tempted to bake it the moment I saw it but decided to wait for a proper baking tin and gather all the ingredients. And yesterday I baked this only later to realize that it was Gudi Padwa too 🙂


And it turned out to be exactly the way I thought it to be. Kudos to all the food bloggers out there, you guys totally rock.

So what’s been up with you?
