Punjabi Kheer Mousse

Punjabi Kheer orchestrated into a new melody of texture and caliber. I turned it into a modern dessert and made a Kheer mousse the other day. Though it is categorized into fusion foods list. But it holds the grace of authenticity, in the core flavors. One can prominently point out the Punjabi kheer flavor, after the very first taste. My favorite part of the dessert is that it not overly sweet and yet satisfy the sweet tooth cravings. Overly sweet […]

Healthy Gluten-free Brownies

Healthy Gluten-free Brownies When I started baking long ago, I went through a series of trials and experiments in my mom’s kitchen. I started with very basic cakes and cookies and it took me long to nail the recipes, that would give me consistent results. Baking as a subject needs a lot of patience and accuracy. One needs to be familiar with the oven temperature and should know, how the ingredients behave with each other. How one ingredient can overpower […]

Classic Banana Bread

How we have a very silent presence of water and air in our lives and we never acknowledge them, never bother to give them some appreciative words. A classic recipe of banana bread has a similar kind of presence in a bakers life. It never seems to get old, and never goes away and we really never acknowledge it. I love baking a loaf of banana bread, love to have a slice with my tea or coffee. It always has […]

Healthy Oat Muffins - 1

Healthy Oat Muffins

Healthy + Tasty baking is considered as a misconception by many. I also fall into that pit of the doubt when I buy commercial baked goods and they are labelled as #healthy. Our psyche makes us eat more when we read the word healthy. The whole food market today is evolving around these keywords. The word Healthy on a packet of cookies can be true, but the number of calories each cookie contains is often not mentioned prominently on the […]

Smoothies for Healthy Gut

Gut health should be taken into consideration. I don’t want to use that heavy vocabulary, that goes beyond our pronunciation sometimes, but you and me, we must take care of our guts. If we take care of our gut healthy, most of the health problems disappear.  Every emotion, feeling, that we go through starts from the gut. The mind and the gut are very closely associated. I have mentioned earlier, how few foods can help us improve our gut bacteria. […]

Red Bean Salad Lunch Bowl

I was on a holiday last month with the family, we were in Austria. It is a beautiful place and we had a wonderful time.  Food, food and more food, I have overindulged for a month. Now, I feel a need to detox the body. Maybe I should try going off sugar for a couple of weeks. It’s kind of obvious that I have gained some weight. I have this desperate desire to erase off those unwanted numbers from my […]
