No-Knead Oatmeal Bread with Fresh Tomato Soup – A Light and Refreshing Dinner

Nothing can beat a homemade wholegrain bread and a cup of hot veggie soup for a cozy weekend family dinner. Normally weekends are reserved for going out and dinning at places where we can do a little bit of window shopping and let the kids indulge in play areas. Incessant rain marred our Saturday plans and we decided to stay put. This is when the idea to bake a fresh wholegrain bread with fresh veggie soup came across.

Banana, Oatmeal & Wholewheat Bread – A Healthy Breakfast Loaf

On any normal day my freezer stock more overripe and blackened bananas than ice cubes, more so because I like baking with bananas and love banana smoothies as a filling breakfast treat and always end up buying extra for the same. This Eggless Banana & Oatmeal Wholewheat Bread was yet another extremely moist and delightful bake for our Sunday breakfast. Since I did not get time to de frost the banana in the morning, I grated the banana and was happy to see a fluffy and evenly baked bread. Grated frozen banana did the magic here!

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.

A Date with Sunflower Seeds – Baked Healthy Ladoos

Come festival season and all the shops get decked up in new attire, lighting, posters and various gimmicks to attract customers. The most active participants during this time are the sweet sellers. The colorful and attractive array of sweets in the shops are tempting enough to give a try.

Most of the sweets in the shops may not confer to the quality of the ingredients used in it, due to the mere quantity and demand of such goodies. For the same reason I wanted to give a slight healthy twist to this traditional sweet recipe which is almost synonym to Rajasthan.

Churma Laddoo is an integral part of welcoming any guest in Rajasthan. I bake the wholewheat flour balls instead of the normal practice of deep frying them in ghee.

Wonder Grain Ragi or Finger Millet and a Dessert – Ragi Puttu

These tiny deep red pearls called Ragi or finger millet are bundle of nutrients. A whole grain which I came to know about much later in life. Until then the cobs or the fingers of ragi used to decorate my vase of dry flower arrangement for long 🙂

It was only when I came to the South of India I became aware of these goldmine of nutrients. From then on it has occupied a much coveted place on my dinning table. I love the earthy and rustic aroma of this mighty grain.
