    EVENT: RECIPE SWAP CHALLENGE THEME:RECIPE SWAP 4 Today’s recipe is for the Recipe Swap Challenge Group. What is this group all about? Initiated by Jolly Makkar and Vidya Narayan, every alternate month the participants are paired up. We choose a recipe to cook from our partner’s blog. The recipe can be cooked as it is or make slight changes. This a great group as it allows me to prepare recipes that I’ve bookmarked or saved from fellow bloggers. For the month of December I was partnered with Lathiya who blogs at Lathi’s Kitchen. She has quite a few interesting dishes from Kerala and lovely bakes too.

    When one looks at suggestions for snacks that are about 100 calories per serving, mangoes are never mentioned. There is a misconception that mangoes are fattening. One cup of mango is only 100 calories, 83% of its weight is water. It is packed with Vitamin A, D, C, antioxidants and is full of healthy fiber. Mangoes were grown in India over 4000 years ago. It is believed that the Buddhists took mangoes on their voyages to other lands. By the 10th Century mangoes had reached East Africa and Middle East.

    I love strawberries Fresh fruit cupcakes are delicious, soft and fruity. I went to Nairobi last week and came back with loads of fresh sweet strawberries. I had to bake these yummy cup cakes this morning. Ideal for breakfast or tea.

    for coconut lovers  The first time I realized that cupcakes can be eggless was when I helped Nunu to make the coconut cupcakes. In a houseful of guests and little kids, we used to bake loads of these cupcakes. Dunked in tea,coffee or milk they taste amazing. We have baked these cakes for various occasions right from birthdays to offerings at the temple or religious gatherings. They tend to taste much better the next day. Nunu baked them with me twice and after that, it was my job to bake the cupcakes and she would take care of lunch or dinner. Baking these delightful cupcakes for a religious occasion is a joy, a sense of happiness during birthday parties and something different for festivals.   …
