    March 10, 2012mayurisjikoni

    Baked Broccoli Baked cauliflower is a popular dish, but have you tried baked broccoli? I really don’t like steamed or boiled broccoli on its own. So the best way I like enjoying this vegetable is baking it with some sauce, cheese and sometimes adding other veggies like cauliflower, corn or mushrooms.Baked Broccoli makes a delightful dinner option, served with a salad on the side and home baked bread. Broccoli belongs to the cruciferous family i.e. in the same family as cauliflower, cabbage, mustard leaves, kale.   Health Benefits of Broccoli   Broccoli contains twice the  amount of Vitamin C compared to an orange. Rich in selenium, a mineral that has found to have anti cancer and anti viral properties. It is a rich source of…

    RECIPE: OLIVE AND ROSEMARY FOCACCIA Olive and Rosemary Focaccia is so aromatic, flavourful and the best part is, that it is so easy to make. Enjoy it on its own with some flavoured olive oil, with some soup or even you pasta dish so that you can wipe the sauce off the plate with it. Take some focaccia along with some salad and wine for a picnic. What Is Focaccia? Focaccia is an Italian olive oil bread. It is flat and can be of any shape – round, square, rectangle or as individual portions. The focaccia dough is much softer than normal bread dough.

    Eggless Mango Coconut Muffins Have you ever tried baking cakes or muffins with fresh mango? You can use ripe mango puree, chopped mangoes or both. For this recipe I use both as you want a burst of mango flavour with each bite.   What is a Mango? Mango is a juicy stone fruit (drupe). Yes, though we all say mango seed, its actually called a stone. Undoubtedly India is the world’s biggest supplier of mangoes. Having said that, a visit to Carrefour in Dubai (my first visit to UAE), I was totally baffled at the variety of fruits that were sold. When we came to the mango side, you name the variety and it was there. Sitting pretty at the far end were apple mangoes…
