    August 6, 2023mayurisjikoni

    Recipe: Avocado Tomato Sandwich Avocado Tomato Sandwich is a filling, delicious and healthy meal option especially for days when you don’t feel like cooking in summer. Best time to enjoy those fresh juicy tomatoes. When it comes to sandwiches, I love tomato ones, with avocado and the classic cucumber one.

Put everything together to make a filling and healthy sandwich in a matter of few minutes. Whenever I use an avocado for sandwiches, I don’t use butter. This makes the sandwiches healthier with good fat from the avocado. While hubby prefers closed sandwiches, I rather…

  • Chole Bhature

    Recipe: Chole Bhature Chole Bhature is a popular dish in the Northern part of India. Apparently, it originates from Delhi. Chole is a spicy chickpea curry and bhatura is a soft puffed up flatbread that goes with the chole. One is bhatura and several are called bhature. It is also known as chana bhature. Generally enjoyed as a breakfast dish, but one can enjoy it for lunch or dinner. We love chole bhature with some chilled chaas. The process of making chole bhature with homemade chole masala or spice mixture may seem tedious but trust me, it is worth all the effort. The freshness of spices adds so much flavour and aroma to the chole. Sharing This Recipe With Sunday Funday Group Sunday Funday is…

  • Potato Bread

    May 26, 2023mayurisjikoni

    Potato Bread Potato Bread is a white, soft and fluffy homemade bread. Leftover mashed potato is added to the dough. To make it more flavourful, I have added fresh rosemary and cheddar cheese. This bread makes a lovely sandwich bread. Memories Sometime back I had baked, (well actually some years ago..) an Irish Freckle Bread whereby potato is added to the dough. That bread was really soft and delish. So next on the list was to bake a savoury version. The first time I made the bread, I landed up with a very sticky dough and because of the extremely hot weather in Mombasa, the dough over fermented resulting a dough that I just couldn’t handle. Added some more flour, and then baked them as…
