The second recipe that I am going to share as part of this baking marathon is the Buttermilk Biscuits, the bread based one which is quite popular in the North American Continent. Biscuits and gravy is a popular breakfast recipe, and you can find this combo in all the breakfast joints. I took advantage of this baking marathon and explored and tried all different flours. I prepared this recipe using Self-Rising Flour and it is eggless too. :-)
As I mentioned in my Oats Puda post, I am trying to incorporate oats into our daily meal and here is one such recipe that I tried recently in the oats challenge attempt. All smoothies are pretty much simple, so I don’t want to repeat that again. :-) For the third day of “smoothies” theme, I presenting you the overnight oats smoothie with dates and flax meal.
Yesterday I posted a simple smoothie with fresh bananas and today’s smoothie is also simple but instead of fresh fruits, I choose frozen fruits. We love berry smoothie, but finding them year around is difficult. So I always have a frozen pack in handy so that I can whip up some easy smoothies, parfaits not only for breakfast but for snacks. This is a simple four-ingredient fix. Blend the berries along with yogurt, water, and vanilla essence and that’s it. A perfect, easy, grab and go breakfast is ready in no time.
I love breakfast smoothies. I bet everyone has crazy mornings and if you want to prepare a healthy breakfast but within 10 minutes, smoothies are your best bet. Today I am going to share a simple smoothie prepared with readily available ingredients. All you need is milk, banana, peanut butter and sugar to prepare this glass of goodness.
Hope you all a great Pongal / Makar Sankranti celebrations. After the heavy festive food, we all need something light and healthy. Today I am going to share one such healthy and an easy recipe – Oats and Besan Puda or Chilla – A perfect breakfast, evening tiffin err I would say perfect lunch box recipe too. If you are following me on Instagram, you might be aware of my oats challenge. Nothing big, I challenged myself to include oats in our daily diet, as simple as that.
It’s time for a guest post. I am so happy to share this post written by Mullai Madhavan of SpiceIndiaOnline. She is one of my favorite blogger and a wonderful friend. I love all her recipes and she says they are simple recipes. But for me, all her recipes are lip-smacking and drool worthy. I like her detailed step by step explanation of the recipe and of course her pictures, oh boy those are worth zillion words. I am a big fan of her pictures. Today she is sharing one of my favorite recipes – Sabudana kichadi.
If it was sambar vadai yesterday, obviously it has to be thayir vadai today. :-) Yet another popular South Indian tiffin recipe – prepared by soaking the crispy lentil vadai or vada in spicy yogurt mix. Unlike sambar vadai, this is super simple to prepare. Once you have the vadai ready, this can be whipped up in less than 30 minutes.
Sambar Vadai – the crispy deep fried savory snack soaked in the hot piping lentil sambar is one of my favorite comfort food and I can enjoy it for any meal. The crispy vada when soaked in sambar becomes super soft and melts down as you chew it and the taste of the sambar vada depends completely upon the sambar. (Obviously right?) Here come my tiffin sambar 3, and the sambar vadai recipe. (Friendly warning, lengthy post ahead)
Idli, Dosa, Paratha and Soups are great for sneaking in veggies and greens. Here is one such recipe – Vallarai Keerai dosai. Vallarai keerai dosai is prepared with regular dosa batter which is then mixed with the Vallarai puree and the flavors are enhanced with onions, cumin and black pepper corns.
A quick and flavorful biryani or pulao prepared with Vermicelli or Semiya. This is an easy one pot meal that can be prepared during weekdays and also a perfect lunch box recipe. I pretty much prepared this like my chettinadu biryani but went with less veggies and regular onions instead of shallots.
