    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #161 GANESH CHATURTHI RECIPES Ganapati Bappa Moriya, Mangal Murti Moriya The whole of India will be chanting the above and getting ready for the Ganesh Chaturthi, Vinayak Chaturthi or Vinayak Chavithi festival.  To find out what the chanting actually means watch this video. This festival marks the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It is believed that when Lord Shiva was away, Goddess Parvati created Ganesha from sandalwood paste to guard the door while she went for her bath. Lord Shiva returns and Ganesha doesn’t recognize Lord Shiva and Lord Shiva had no idea that Ganesha was created by his wife Parvati. A fight occurs between the two as Ganesha would not allow Him to enter.…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #154 FILMI FOODIES Whenever Mallika who blogs at A Foodie Housewife suggests a theme for our weekly FoodieMonday group, she comes up with unique ideas. The #154th theme suggested by her was Filmi Foodies. So what does that mean? Well, either you make a dish that your favorite actor (note that these days there is no gender differentiation) loves, or any dish/dishes that an actor suggests or makes for the masses to follow their diet and nutritional plan or make a dish that has featured in a movie. The first foodie movie that I watched was Cheeni Kum. However, being a vegetarian I didn’t want to go into the whole procedure of creating a Hyderbadi Zafrani Pulao without meat. After that I watched…

  • Carrot Coconut Kheer

    EVENTS: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 WEEK 2 DAY 2 FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEMES: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET / EID SPECIAL Lets talk about the the Blogging Marathon theme first. I chose make one type of Indian Sweet because I wanted to make different types of kheer and also showcase that its possible to make both sugarless and with sugar without any hassles. I’d come across so many carrot kheer recipes and always wondered what it would taste like. So voila there I made it and it tastes awesome. Its actually a great dessert, easy to make and the charming thing about this recipe is that besides being so colorfully tempting, one can control the amount of sugar that goes into it. Since carrots are slightly sweet,…

    Happy Valentine’s Day    What is Valentine’s Day without roses, chocolates and all things cute? Hope hubby is reading this and gets a hint;). People could be selling Valentine’s paraphernalia right under his nose and he’d still not get the hint. Sighhhh! Perhaps I should treat myself to roses.     Getting down to today’s theme for FoodieMonday/Bloghop group, we unanimously decided on Valentine Rose as our 131st theme. For this theme one could either prepare something that has rose flavor or which is in the shape of a rose. I really love rose flavor so I chose to make a healthy but romantic dessert. Though I served to hubby dear a few days before Valentine’s, he thoroughly enjoyed the early treat. That means I will…

    Gingerbread and Oatmeal Bread#BreadBakers Theme: Whole Grained Holiday Breads Whether people would like to admit it or not, December brings about an air of festivities for all. The celebrations begin with ThanksGiving and will end with New Year celebrations. Shops are decorated, Christmas sales are on, friends and relatives share decorated streets, trees, homes photos. One cannot help but get drawn to this seasonal celebration. I consider myself very lucky that I get to enjoy Diwali, Eid and Christmas. As a Hindu living in a predominantly Christian Country and a strong Muslim part of Kenya, I get drawn into celebrating all three festivals. When Kalyani of Sizzling Tastebuds suggested Whole Grained Holiday Breads, I tried looking for recipes where I could use whole grains. There…

    Happy Diwali    For most Gujaratis the Diwali celebrations began from yesterday with  Rama Ekadashi, whereby if you fast on this day, all your sins are forgiven and you attain salvation. However, in typical Gujarati style, fasting food or agyaras food is prepared. No grains or beans, onion, garlic, many vegetables are not allowed. However sabudana khichdi, moriyo, potatoes, etc are prepared.     Today is Vagh Baras or Vase Baras. On this day the cow and calf are worshipped. Vagh means debt and today all debts are cleared and new transactions are done in new ledger books after Labh Pancham. The word Vaak Baras is mispronounced as Vagh Baras. Vaak or Vani means  Goddess Saraswati, the one who blesses us with language and knowledge.…

    Cookie,a must with tea or coffee Theme: Cookies For Your Sweet Tooth   BM #81 Week 2 Day 2    Isn’t it intriguing that when one has tea or coffee during mid morning or in the afternoon, one feels like having a cookie with it? I do. I usually want to have one small cookie with my afternoon tea. My siblings and I grew up having biscuits as we called them back then with our glass of milk. I enjoy dunking my cookie or biscuit in the tea, milk or coffee. A few places in the world will automatically serve a small cookie along with some coffee. I like that special treat whenever I get it.    I enjoying baking and cookies was what I learnt how to…
