CORN CAPSICUM CHEESE TOAST

Sandwich is such a saviour for me.When I blink with no options to make I just blend the available ingredients to make a sandwich and my son just loves it.This was one such random try .I actually planned for a bread pizza but little one didn’t want the sauce on it,so this recipe is an open sandwich.Adding sauce(check out home made sauce recipe here) will make it an exact bread pizza. Sandwiches are excellent options for breakfast/snack/dinner because of the variations we can make and stuff all vegetables we wish to make it healthy/yummy/colourful.

VEGAN MANGO MUFFINS/EGGLESS MANGO MUFFINS-A muffin recipe with no white ingredients and no milk products-Yes it is vegan. I just can’t believe myself and I can’t hold the recipe to myself.

GROUNDNUT CASHEW BALLS

Everyone in the family is so fond of groundnuts.We love it as laddu/candy/steamed/roasted/gravy/stir fry/salad. I used to make this laddu when little one was less than two years when I was scared if he would bite groundnut candy(our own kadalai mittai) and chew well. Groundnut is an excellent source of energy,protein and selenium. When we combine groundnut and jaggery it becomes a power house of iron too. I always prefer the traditional candies like groundnut candy/laddu/fried gram ladoo/sesame laddu to any other store bought cookies or candies or biscuits. You can watch a video of Dr.Sivaraman here stating the importance of our own traditional foods and highlighting the nutritional value of groundnuts. Continue reading “GROUNDNUT CASHEW BALLS”

GHEE FRIED POHA|SWEET FRIED POHA

How many of you crave for a simple munch on or a “karack morak” snack at times? I do at times. I control myself saying snacking is bad most of the times. But when I am out of control I prefer making some instant snacks at home and have few spoons. One such instant quick snack is this recipe. I honestly didn’t know how to name the dish. I just randomly came up with this. Please ping me if you have some suggestions. This is usually made in the vessel which had been used to melt butter in the process of making ghee. Amma does not wash the vessel with the residue. She makes fried poha and then washes it. So everytime when ghee is made at home from butter (Check home made butter recipe here) , you can find this fried poha in our snack table. Continue reading “GHEE FRIED POHA|SWEET FRIED POHA”
