    EVENT:FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME:#179 FOODMAGBEST When Seema who blogs at Mildy Indian suggested the above theme, I didn’t even want to know what the other choices were. I like something that jolts me from my comfort zone and this was just the right theme. Basically for this theme we could prepare any dish and then work on the photography or presentation, pretending that its for a magazine cover. How exciting would that be in reality. In reality I would not be the one photographing the food or working on the presentation. I would have to just cook the recipe. Well, we all can wish for anything dear to our heart. Before I go into the recipe, I must mention that Seema has had the opportunity to stay…

    EVENT: GUEST POST FOR EVERGREEN DISHES Sometime back Jayashree, who blogs at EverGreen Dishes asked me to be a guest on her blog. I promised her that as soon as I got back from my trip to India I would make something for her blog. However, time just flew, with me falling sick and then with Navratri and now Diwali preparations. However, I feel bad when I’ve made a commitment and cannot see it through. Jayashree is quite a busy body, she not only has 3 ebooks published but also runs a popular Facebook Group called Desi Bloggers Connect. I got to know her through some food blogger groups that we both are a part of. Her blog is full of  South Indian recipes, a variety…

    EVENT:FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME:#172 INTERNATIONAL FEAST When it comes to choosing themes for FoodieMonday/Bloghop, the task can be a little difficult as we try to make it a bit challenging and yet feasible for all, with members living in different parts of the world and availability of ingredients. For quite sometime our themes were more or less based on Indian cooking. So to give that a rest and to make something different this week, I challenged the members to identify a country beginning with the first letter of their name and then cook a dish from that country. By this theme hoping that we’ll get a variety of different dishes from different parts of the world and hence the theme name #InternationalFeast. For me the choices were…

    EVENT: BREAD BAKERS THEME : MIDDLE EASTERN BREADS I find that Middle Eastern Breads are so different from the other breads and I love them. So when Karen who blogs at Karen’s Kitchen Stories suggested Middle Eastern Breads, I knew I’d take part. However time was running out for me as I had to travel in September and I also had committed to doing 26 Indian Flatbreads. So it was like my kitchen was full of breads..though flat, but it was screaming ‘make something different like rice’ and I had to reassure it that soon all this flour work would be over. I had a few days left before the travel date approached and was in a dilemma, should I participate, shouldn’t I! The pull…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #158 INDIAN FLATBREAD Sometimes taking a break from blogging and commenting is required. I took a small break last week and though I had carried my computer to Nairobi, I didn’t open it for 5 whole days, not even to check what’s happening on Facebook, Pinterest… ok had to admit couldn’t keep away from Instagram but promise I did not post anything 🙂 Poonam who blogs at Annapurna, suggested the above theme. In a few weeks I’ll be doing a Mega Blogging Marathon on Flatbreads for the Blogging Marathon group. But lets get back on track to this group. Poonam’s blog is full of traditional and not so traditional recipes. She has so much patience to click photos of every step. As…

  • Pan de Yuca/ Yuca Bread#BreadBakers

    July 10, 2018mayurisjikoni

    EVENT: BREAD BAKERS THEME: GLUTEN FREE BREAD This pan de yuca or yuca bread or cassava bread recipe has been in my recipe book for over a year. I had once bought some cassava flour to try out some traditional African recipe. Lost the recipe, couldn’t remember the name, left with a bag of flour. When I cleaning out the fridge, the flour came out from some hidden corner. Googled for recipes to use up the flour and came across the recipe for pan de yuca. I jotted it down and decided to check out other similar recipes. What got me so confused was the different oven temperatures used, the amount of cheese used. I got confused and thought I’ll get back to the recipe…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #151 CORN The whole of today was spent indoor as right now Montreal is going through a heatwave. We thought that the night time would be cooler so went for a long walk with hubby. However, the heat was unbearable. The last time I experienced a blast of hot air like this was years ago when I first went to Amdavad before I joined school in Mt.Abu. Mombasa is a hot and humid place but we don’t get dry hot air. Tomorrow too is going to be hot and people have been advised to drink lots of water. Luckily the football matches for the World Cup are going on so for better half of the day watched the matches. I cannot sit…

    EVENT: BREAD BAKERS THEME: NATURALLY COLORFUL BREADS When Mireille who blogs at Schizo Chef suggested the above theme, I couldn’t see beyond  beetroot. I wanted to bake a bread with beetroot puree. However, that didn’t happen as twice during my trip to the market I forgot to buy beetroots. Staying in Mombasa has its few perks amongst the many disadvantages, one of them being that vegetable and fruit sellers come to my doorstep. Two wonderful ladies who balance heavy plastic basins filled with vegetables and fruits on their heads, have a medium size basin full, tucked in between the arm and chest and a full kikapu (baskets made from dried palm leaves) carried in their other hand come practically everyday. They both sell seasonal fruits…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP  THEME:146TH BREAD RECIPES Breads have become such an important part of our daily diet, be it for breakfast with some butter, jam, eggs, as a sandwich for lunch, with our soups and sometimes some curries. As a snack we enjoy freshly baked rolls, buns, or snacks made out of bread. Bread is a versatile food. There have been several controversies out there indicating that bread is bad for health. I guess its only bad if you’re overeating. A couple of slices is fine. Today’s theme chosen by Kriti who blogs at Krispy Kadhai, is bread. Sometimes I like how members think. So Priya asked as to whether we have to bake a bread or make anything using bread? So that opened up a…
