Recipes | Three Easy and Healthy Indian Breakfast Treats – Let there be Art

Creativity has no boundaries and is best expressed when the mind is free and the world is your canvas to work upon. For the last couple of days South Indian cinema and politics is abuzz with a certain ban on the release of a Tamil movie. Though I don’t follow the happenings from the field of cinema or politics much, but this one caught my eyes. People in the shops, morning walkers, school children, my maid and not to forget the screaming TV channel anchors, everyone seems to be worried about the freedom of expression overnight.

Anyways, hope both the sides resolve the issue amicably soon and the freedom of an artist to express art without any boundaries or political pressure is restored and also the powers of politicians to bring in peace and justice are appreciated.

Wholewheat & Veggie Savory Cake – A Healthy Breakfast Treat

No Pancakes, no Parathas, no Upma and no Sandwiches please…we want something different for breakfast tomorrow” my son made a demand last night. “We are ready to wait for a little extra time mom, so no excuses” my daughter informed with a blink. First half of the night was spent turning from one side of bed to other, thinking about that ‘something different’. Why not take one ingredient each from all the breakfast recipes and …Yes I got it, now sleep tight Zzzzz…

Wholewheat from parathas, semolina from Upma, yogurt from pancakes and veggies from sandwiches and here I am with this healthy yet ‘something different‘ on a lazy Sunday morning breakfast table…Tada! Big smile on their faces and I know that the effort of baking this delightful savory cake is really worth taking 🙂

Found A Peanut… a Refreshing Peanut Sprout Salad Recipe

Roasted Peanuts or groundnuts are a very popular & economical street snack which are healthy too. These serve as a wonderful travel food which could easily help spark a conversation with your co passengers 🙂 Available throughout the year these nuts are an important addition to various regional recipes of India. I can’t imagine my Poha without fried peanuts and the cold winters without the chikkis and ladoos mom makes at home.

Wholewheat & Cornmeal Goji Berry Scones – A Healthy Treat

“Madam we have a few exciting and new organic products on shelf this month” greeted the man in the shop. “Thanks shall check it out” was my quick & meek reply to the much baffled salesman and he understood that I wanted to be left alone during one of my monthly visits to the health stores nearby.

Never did I know that I was in for a surprise, yes I spotted Goji Berries! I looked at the salesman who was probably a bit upset with my reply and smiled. Yes, I am holding one of the most nutritious and powerful super foods in the world – Goji Berries!

And from the day I got my hands on these wonder foods, I am on a ‘Goji spree’. It is as if I want to make up for all that I lost for so many years without these berries.

Oatmeal and Banana Scones – Perfect Way to a Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast recipes cease to change in many households due to lack of time or inability to adapt to new tastes. If it is traditional Indian flat breads or Parathas all year long in my mom’s place, Idlies or steamed rice cakes adorns the breakfast table in my In-laws house. To break the monotony I started introducing various grains and fruits in baking along with various healthy breakfast recipes immediately after my marriage. Today we all enjoy to feast on our breakfast of Muesli crumble, Ragi pancakes, barley scones or granola bars with the same enthusiasm.

Oatmeal never tasted that great before!” is the comment from my son after having a bite of these Oatmeal and banana scones 🙂

The Wonder grain Barley – Health Benefits and a Delicious Dessert

Barley reminds me of my pregnancy when I had to gulp that glassful of white, odorless and tasteless fluid religiously. Times have changed after the constant browsing and learning more about food and health through internet. Though there are schools which are for and against the wholegrain in diet, I go with the former. As I don’t make the wholegrain as my staple food but add them as a supplement with my veggies, fruits and lentils.

A Bread, a Brownie and Wonderful Zucchini All The Way!

Sometimes simple things in life can bring in windfall gains and mine came through the wonderful vegetable Zucchini I bought this weekend. Yes, this small veggie got transformed into three different delectable dishes for my family last Sunday. A bread, a brownie and a few pancakes. Thought of posting all together but then restrained myself doing the same, as the post will become too long and will be difficult to categorize all. So here are the two Zucchini delights for you to indulge in…a bread and a brownie. Don’t miss out on the easy & quick breakfast of Zucchini savory pancakes.

The plain Zucchini bread with no other flavors and very less of sugar tasted very good and was liked by me and my hubby. The chocolate in the brownies marred the flavors and taste of the veggie but anyway became a hit with my kids 🙂

Healing Honey

One of the most ancient foods known to us – Honey, is a nature’s gift to mankind. This translucent, viscous and golden beauty is highly acknowledged for its healing properties. A great source of carbohydrates, it has a natural fruit sugar and is a delicious alternative to white sugar due to the color and flavors it imparts to the food.

A bottle of Honey is a must at all times in my kitchen shelf. And I find it really hard to resist licking a teaspoon of it whenever any recipe requires me to unscrew the bottle of this golden liquid 🙂

A Cake That Was Not…Eggless Ragi or Finger Millet Bake

The cake that was not…Yes, I didn’t get any appropriate title for this beautiful cake which happened accidentally! The Ragi Pancakes which I made this weekend and posted before this cake came into existence, left me with surplus batter sitting in my fridge. Not knowing what to do with the batter I just added a few spoons of chocolate syrup, a handful of nuts and baked it. Voila’ this pretty came into life!

Sometimes accidents do bring sweet results, and this Ragi Cake is one such 🙂
