Homemade Sun-dried Tomato Pesto

  Sun-dried tomato pesto is very simple to make at home. It adds a lot of depth in terms of flavour and texture to any snack you serve it with. I am not sure if the name – sun-dried tomato pesto would be a correct for this dip. This is my version and is super quick to prepare.  But I just want to insist on using good quality sun-dried tomatoes. The ones which are fleshy, and are chewier in texture. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Apple Cinnamon Granola

Apple Cinnamon Granola

Granola is healthy and it’s so true. Here is a brutal fact – Too much granola will make you fat.  Healthy does not mean over-indulgence is permissible. The ingredients that are used in the making of granola are all healthy/superfoods, but they are rich in fat (healthy fat). The nuts, seeds, coconut oil, palm sugar are all great for health but are high in calories. By all means, having granola and ditching the packet of chips is a better choice. […]
