Recipe | Strawberry Galette with Oatmeal crust – Remembering the gift of marriage

A couple in love is like a pair of scissors….two useless pieces of metal, until they are inextricably connected at the core so that they can move together as one and accomplish great things.” ~ Jack Canfield

KK and I have known each other for more than two decades. Marriage is just a reason, but lifelong friendship is the most precious gift that we received on 22nd January 1996.

Recipe | Healthy Papdi Chaat Tarts- It’s all about sharing my love for food

“What keeps me motivated is not the food itself but all the bonds and memories the food represents.” M. Chiarello
I was slightly disturbed reading a message from a reader last evening which read like this “I love your recipes, but please include step-wise pictures of the recipes and increase the frequency of your blogposts.”
To which my reply was, “I am glad that you like the recipes here. But please understand that Lite Bite is not just a recipe blog, it’s my personal diary where I also love to share my …

Baking | Indian Parathas Calzone Way – There is nothing better than being able to bring a smile on  someones face

There is nothing better than being able to bring a smile to someones face and make them happy. Yes, I did it again!
I have other commitments lined up for this week already and I may not be able to take up this project. Moreover I am not a professional photographer, I can ony style the food to some extent. And doing 60 dishes in such a short span of time is practically impossible.” I replied showing my helplessness to accept the said project to my friend ‘P’ on phone.

Recipe | Easy & Healthy Pumpkin Pie with Oats Crust and A Perfectly Wonderful Evening..

Sports do not build characters. They reveal it.’  I would never have known this side of my son but for the sports day celebrations in their school. He along with other friends helped their teachers organize the props, dresses and other essential accessories for the shows on Sports day. Some of the students (including him) who stay near school premises took extra food, water and goodies daily to share with others during long hours of practice sessions in school. Proud moments for any parent.

And I promised him to make a dessert on their sports day which resembled the color of their dress code, Yellow.

Think of yellow and Pumpkin pops up in mind. This extremely light, delicate and scrumptious Pumpkin Pie was what I baked and shared with my son’s friends.

Mini Oat Tarts with Mixed Fruit & Yogurt Filling – Healthy Dessert to Indulge

Think of a dessert and fresh fruits top my list hands down. A bowl of sliced juicy strawberries, apples and grapes sprinkled with castor sugar or with fresh yogurt is what I and my hubby crave for. There is always a difference of opinion at home, my children love to settle for a  chocolate bar if there is just plain fruits for dessert. But they look pretty cool of late, now that they know their food blogger mama  needs to update her blog with a recipe every week 🙂

Wholewheat Mini Pears Pie with Cinnamon and Palm Sugar

The unexpected guests who were allergic to cream, condensed milk & eggs, made me bake these mini pears pie, and I am delighted I did the same! Else dessert is normally a frosted cake or fresh fruits with cream. And this time I thought of making a pie with pears instead of the ubiquitous Apples and bake them in individual mini tarts. Quite easy to assemble, these Mini Pears Pie also give more crust to bite upon than the single crust pies.

The uneven look of the pie crust is due to the hard dough which almost crumbled when I lined the moulds. But then the result is a very delightful pie with a crisp base and a soft filling of red pear. Cinnamon and palm sugar combo give the extra flavors and healthy touch to this delicious pie .

A Healthy Wholewheat Veggie Pot Pie

Pot pie is a baked pie recipe, which is filled with loads of veggies and covered with whole-wheat or flaky pastry. Easy to make and healthy, these are a perfect and wholesome dish for the cold winter nights.

The top crust can be made flaky with refined flour or a bit dense and chewy with wholewheat. Since I like whole grain in my baking recipes, I baked this pot pie with whole-wheat pastry which was similar to a baked wheat biscuit texture.
