    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 THEME: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET Next week I’m traveling to Canada to visit my son. Excited? Yes. Have I started packing? No. I know last minute I’m going to be running around like a headless chicken. I need to put away the spices, grains, flours, lentils everything in the fridge. I hate this part. The weather here is so humid that food gets spoilt within a month in not stored in the fridge. I need to still make a few goodies to take for him. I need to pack. I was joking with hubby dear that he might as well convert one of the bedrooms into a cold storage. Oh well, let me just relax for a bit and…

    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,…

    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 WEEK 2 DAY 1 THEME: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET For the #89th BM theme I chose make one type of Indian Sweet as I specifically had one famous and easy Indian sweet in mind, and that is kheer. I want to show that any type of kheer can be made into a sugar less option too. I personally don’t like the taste of any artificial sweeteners. However hubby loves his stevia. When I made the kheer, I added sugar at the last stage. I removed a portion for hubby, added stevia and to mine I added sugar. Also one is able to control the amount of sugar according to their taste. Don’t want to add sugar then add palm…

    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. Mango design or paisley is featured in textile designs for centuries. Mangoes come in small, medium and large sizes, can vary in shape too and may be either yellow, orange or red in colour and…

    Happy Holi    I’m not going to go into why Holi is celebrated as I’ve already mentioned that in my other Holi posts. However, I still believe that everyone can enjoy a more environmentally friendly Holi by not using artificial colors. Not only do those awful reds, blues, greens and yellows not come off our skin and hair for days but it affects the plants, makes the roads look messy and dirty. Its also a waste of water which is fast becoming even more precious than any metal on earth. At the same time please please please leave your pets out of this celebration. A hug should suffice and not coloring the poor creature’s fur with all sorts of colors!    When I was growing up…

    Healthy Dessert For Kids Theme: Kid’s DelightBM#85 Week 3 Day 3    During my last trip to Montreal, during the weekend we decided to go to the Old Port area. It was bustling with people, it was a very hot sunny day, many food trucks were around selling food, desserts etc, stalls selling hats, sunglasses, souvenirs, and so many things. While most of the Canadians and tourists were enjoying the sweltering sun, I was looking for some place to sit under the shade. I  cannot bear really hot weather. It just zaps all my energy and I feel so sluggish. I finally found some place on the bench under a tree and right in front of the truck selling chocolate dipped frozen bananas. The choice…

    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…

    Recipe Swap 2       After Dawn paired us up for the January Food Bloggers Recipe Swap, I had every intention of immediately checking out my partner Sarah Schwarz’s blog Cook At Home. However, that did not happen as I was in a holiday mood. When Sarah sent me an email asking me questions to know a bit more about me, I thought I too better get cracking. However, on holiday and no access to a kitchen  I thought I’d go through her blog and decide on what I’d like to make. As I cruise through her blog I see the phrases like Whole 30 and Paleo. Frankly I didn’t know what Whole 30 meant till I googled the phrase. So I knew I would…
