    EVENT: A- Z RECIPE CHALLENGE THEME : A DISH BEGINNING WITH THE LETTER J Why I made Jaggery Banana Bread? Well, I’m a member of the group A-Z Recipe Challenge, a group started by Jolly Makkar and Vidya Narayan. What is required of in this group? Nothing too difficult but to cook a dish using an ingredient whose English name begins with the designated letter. This month we’re suppose to choose an ingredient that begins with J. Jalapeño, Jackfruit, Jelly, Jam and Jaggery are some of the few ingredients that I thought of.  I have jalapeño poppers on my list to try out for so long. The urge is now even more urgent as I tasted them during my visit to USA and loved them. …

    EVENT:FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME:#192 ONE SPICE INGREDIENT   When Sasmita who blogs at First Timer Cook was suggesting themes for #192, I wasn’t paying much attention as I thought I wouldn’t be able to participate. It was when I got back to my hotel in the evening and saw over 50 messages on the group’s WhatsApp, is when I began reading them out of curiosity. With One Spice Ingredient as the chosen theme, I immediately remembered that I had a recipe in the draft that fits the bill. I was about to post this recipe for the minicake theme but changed my mind. I now know why this one got saved.   Sasmita has a wonderful blog with a huge range of recipes from Odia dishes to more…

Well, its a group of bloggers who get together to post a dish for 26 days according to the chosen theme. For more details check out the initiator Srivalli’s page here.

Its going to be a challenge to…

    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #88 THEME: KID’S DELIGHT – HEALTHY DRINKS – WEEK 3 DAY 2 As I mentioned in the Day 1 post for healthy drinks for kids, I want to refrain from using artificial flavors, additives, colors and today to the list I add harmful fats like hydrogenated vegetable fats. These are found in baked goods, restaurant foods, sold as margarine, finds its way into products like peanut butter, other nut spreads etc. Peanut butter in moderation is good for health. Making peanut butter at home is so easy. Roasted peanuts are processed in a food processor till it becomes a smooth paste. Its that simple. Why should kids have peanut butter included in their diet: Its rich in protein. Has good fat. Keeps…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON THEME:EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 19 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” When Srivalli first suggested the themes for this Mega Blogging Marathon my mind was set on the breakfast theme. Little did I know that I would truly be exploring flavors from other countries and some from countries I’d not heard of like Tatarstan. At that time the only breakfast dishes that I could see were French Toast, different bakes, oatmeals, you know the usual Sunday brunch items.  When I decided to take on the challenge of making breakfast dishes from A-Z, that’s when a whole world of different breakfast dishes opened up. Today’s breakfast is…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 13 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Wow, we’ve reached half way, another half to go. As the letters are passing by so quickly so are the days.  I had the real Monday Blues today. Got up early, beat the clock and finished all my kitchen work before the water went away and was all ready to tackle a few hours on the computer. However, suddenly I felt a little dizzy and couldn’t concentrate on what I was supposed to write. Decided to rest a bit till hubby comes home for lunch. Served lunch, didn’t feel like eating much but he…

    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…

    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…

The other participants posted their recipes before Thanksgiving Day.     How does this group work? Well, its quite simple.

     Land of the Dawn Lit Mountains    As I had mentioned last month, The Shh Cooking Secretly group started by Priya Suresh of Priya’s Versatile Recipes is traveling round India state by state. Not physical travel, but cuisine wise. For the month of October participating members had to come up with dishes that are popular in Arunachal Pradesh with the given secret ingredients. This state wise cooking is opening up a whole new world of cuisine for me. I’m learning new names of dishes, new ingredients and different cooking methods. Food in Arunachal Pradesh in general does not have much oil unless its a fried dish and they depend largely on ingredients grown or available locally. People of Arunachal Pradesh love their meat and bamboo…
