    Food Blogger Recipe Swap -November Partner :Luca – Simply Delish Eats    Its my first time to post a recipe for the Food Blogger Recipe Swap. I’ve always been interested in trying out recipes from other bloggers blogs. I wanted to join the Secret Recipe  Club but it shut down. I came across this group by chance and requested Amber Dawn who blogs at Simply Made recipes to enroll me as a member. My first post and I’m a bit late but then better late than never. The other participants posted their recipes before Thanksgiving Day.     How does this group work? Well, its quite simple. Every month (except during holiday time), Amber will ask who would like to participate in the event for that particular month. We add…

     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…

    Food on Sticks is fun The 109th theme for FoodieMonday, Bloghop is On A Stick decided by the initiator of this group Waagmi who blogs at Cooking is Funn. Just a few days ago my daughter in law posted some photos of their visit to Kuala Lumpur. She showed us food stalls serving all kinds of food on sticks or skewers. While most appeared to be meat and fish based, I could make out a few sticks of veggie stuff. Serving food on sticks or skewers is fast becoming popular at Bars, Lounges, Dinner Parties, Cocktails,as Street Food as people don’t want to get their fingers dirty and food on sticks or skewers does look pretty, colorful and tempting. Just a few days ago I…

    Fantastical Food Fight This group, Fantastical Food Fight managed by Sarah Ellis, is where bloggers create a recipe according to the monthly theme. This month the theme is Ice Creams and rightly so as its summer. Summer and Ice Creams go hand in hand. Summer in Montreal – Memory It has been really hot for the past few days in Montreal. Humid and sunny, just the kind of weather Canadians enjoy after the long winter months. People walking, jogging, swimming, sailing, lazing in the sun, enjoying picnics. My dad is here from London, and he too is enjoying the bright sunny days. What a change for him from the grey, windy weather in UK. As for me I prefer to walk in the shade, sit…

    Kabalagala (Ugandan Pancakes)#BreadBakers So many different types its unbelievable I didn’t have any theme in mind when I volunteered to host the month of February for the Bread Bakers group.As Christmas got over and the year was ending I knew I had to think of a theme pretty soon. I went back to the rules for participants and there the word pancake kept staring at me. The only pancakes I know are the usual Indian ones like dosas, uttappams, chilas etc and of course the typical fluffy American style ones dripping with melted butter and honey or maple syrup. Did a bit of research (what would we do without Google?) and hey presto the world opened up to me with a variety of pancakes I’d…

    A satisfying beginning to the day    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast is breaking a fast; a fast you undergo from the time you had dinner to the time you have breakfast. Importance of breakfast has been stressed by athletes, dietician, doctors, physical trainers. Breakfast provides the necessary fuel required for the brains and body after the overnight fast. Meals usually consumed for breakfast provide important nutrients like iron, calcium, B vitamins, proteins and fibers that are necessary to function during the day. A balanced meal of carbohydrates, proteins and minerals and vitamins is what most breakfast meals provide us with. Eating cereals, eggs, lean meat, fruits, vegetables, milk products take care of the required balance meal.    Eating a…

    It is healthy!     Our Home Bakers Challenge for the month of October was Oat Bakes, recipes selected by fellow blogger Rafeeda of The Big Sweet Tooth. All the recipes were tempting to bake but for a change I chose the healthiest one. No sugar and no fat, yes you read right no sugar or fat. So you can imagine the bake without even fat. It was a big chewy but what I like about these bars is that it can be a snack for in between meals, a sweet treat after meals or can have it for breakfast. I know what I am going to carry with me when I am travelling next time especially by Ethiopian Airlines. As I mentioned before, long…

  • 521. yeasted banana sandwich bread

    September 24, 2015mayurisjikoni

    magic fruit    Who would have ever thought that banana can be used along with yeast to make a delicious bread? I didn’t…. till Aparna of  ‘We Knead to Bake’ challenged us to bake one for September. I thought “that’s going to be a sweet bread, so how come its a sandwich bread?” However, the bread was not sweet and besides the slight banana taste, its like any normal bread but with a soft inside and crispy crust. As soon as the loaf came out of the oven, I wanted to slice it straight away because of the delicious aroma. However, had to resist the urge but after 20 minutes just had to slice it. The warm bread was an excellent accompaniment to a wholesome…

  • 499. eggless chocolate banana bundt cake

    April 21, 2015mayurisjikoni

    Celebration As I mentioned in my previous post, April is full of birthdays and anniversaries. Last weekend we celebrated my hubby’s mama’s 77th birthday. I baked a cake for his birthday. It had to be eggless as mamaji is a total vegetarian, no eggs or meat or fish. I had loads of over ripe bananas and thought of using them up. Hot weather means bananas do not stay good for too long. I though of using butter icing and then changed my mind as I thought a 77 year old man deserves a more classy cake. He wanted to serve ice cream as dessert so mamiji requested for a cake that could be served with ice cream. I decided to drizzle the cake with some…

    NO SUGAR, NO CREAM        You maybe wondering what I am talking about. I am talking about an ice cream where you don’t need to add any sugar or any whipping cream, no sweetened condensed milk. I came across this recipe in an Eating well article. The original recipe used just the bananas, but I added milk to give it a more creamier, softer texture. You really can’t make out that this ice cream is not made from any cream or condensed milk. Easy to make, can also make it in minutes if you get unexpected guests. However, I do recommend a very strong blender for this task. You know the magi mix type or even the steel jug type which we normally…
