    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 9 “Breakfast Like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” I’m a little excited and at the same time a bit worried. Pretty soon am moving from Blogger to WordPress. Work is still in progress. I’m keeping all my fingers crossed that the move will be seamless. The new blog was supposed to be ready before I started the Mega Blogging Marathon. Before I posted the first day recipe I was in a dilemma as to should I participate or not. What made me participate is some of the recipes that I had already prepared for the theme. As the saying goes ‘baad mai…

  • 710. Bajri and Moong Dal Khichdi

    October 2, 2017mayurisjikoni

    Super Healthy    Navratri and Dussera are over, all the feasting is over..for now. After all the rich snacks and desserts, Saturday meal was a simple khichdi made using bajri (bajra, pearl millet) and moong dal.        The 112th theme for FoodieMonday/Bloghop suggested by Amrita who blogs at The Food Samaritan, was #1Tsp Oil. This theme couldn’t have come at a better time. Saturday meal was definitely light on the stomach and yet full of nutrition. Thanks Amrita for encouraging us to cook with little or no oil.     On my ‘to do list’ was this bajra khichdi ever since Sapana of Cooking with Sapana posted the recipe for the protein rich dishes theme. Sapana thank you so much, the khichdi turned out really delicious.  …

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:5 For this protein rich dish I nearly drove my husband up the walls! I wanted to bake individual portions for this recipe but my son’s kitchen didn’t have any individual oven friendly bowls. I researched online for the right kind of bakeware, and it had to be from my favorite shop Stokes. Next day it was raining but I insisted that we go to the shop. From home its about a 30-40 minute walk. Hubby took out all sorts of bakeware from the kitchen and I just kept rejecting them as my brains could only see the bakeware I had seen on the Stokes online store. Finally, as we all know, women…

    Love this recipe    Its Monday and yes you’ve guessed right.. its #FoodieMonday #Bloghop day. Our #98th theme was chosen by Saswati who blogs at Delish Potpourri. Saswati’s got a beautiful blog full of travel stories, a variety of recipes from different parts of the world and I love her desserts. She suggested #CWFB which means Cooking with a fellow blogger. For this theme we had a choose any recipe from a fellow blogger in our group. I have so many recipes bookmarked from all these members, it was difficult to choose which one to cook.    Sticking to my healthy cooking as far as possible, I narrowed it down to 2 recipes that I’ve tried and made again and again. One is rava kara…

    Healthy One Pot Meal The #95 theme for #FoodieMonday #Bloghop group is One Pot Meal suggested by our group member Sujata. I nearly skipped this week as on Friday I had to close down my kitchen as we are travelling to India and then Canada. It’s going to be nearly 3 months that I’ll be away from home. Well, not that I am complaining. The first 14 days  its going to be time spent with my daughter and son in law and we’ll be busy enjoying a wedding.My daughter’s best friends are getting married. Then we fly off to Canada to spend time with her twin brother. Usually when we travel, I tend to close down my kitchen a day before and order take away.…

    Guest No.10          I was supposed to post this last week but the whole schedule got messed up. I had some posts that had to b live on certain dates (that’s what happens when you’re in too many groups!) and problems with the internet. It rained a lot last week and many places in Mombasa were flooded.           My 10th Guest on the blog, its my sister in law Heni. She’s married to my cousin Hiren. His mum was my 3rd guest. She had prepared Tangy Creamy Potato Curry. I’ve not had much opportunity to spend time with Heni, but whatever time we spend together at my dad’s home, their home or an outing, its fun. When I first met…

    Papa Francis in Kenya The Pope’s visit to Kenya had all Kenyans excited. Slum area Kangemi was cleaned up as the Pope was going to visit it. The Pope’s message to Kenya couldn’t have come at a better time. In the past few years, the gap between the rich and poor has widened, corruption has reached a critical level and the non existence of basic services and infrastructure. It seems we live in a society where the people in charge of the Government have their heads buried in the sand, oblivious of what problems the rest of Kenya is facing. He spoke out against corruption, criticized the lack of roads, sewers, drinking water, electricity,refuse collection, schools, hospitals, proper housing and security for children. He talked…

    Generosity What is generosity? Its readiness or liberality in giving, kind, amplitude. Any charity organization in the world depends on the generosity of the people. People can be generous by donating money, providing service or being a part of the support. Providing service to the needy and less fortunate costs money. Recently my Club, Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari, held a fundraising event. The committee organized a dinner and dance event. Music was provided by our local band Mombasa Roots and Voyager Beach Hotel helped in organizing this event and providing the entertainment. I think the hardest part was selling the tickets. Its so difficult to convince people to buy the tickets for a charity event.The event went well and was supported by many well…

    full of vegetables    The recipe for vegetable handvo has been in my recipe book (followers may recall that all my recipes since I started cooking, are jotted in a big diary given to me by my dad) even before I got married. My friend’s mum use to make this very often as a snack or as a meal. When Padmajha Sureshbabu of Seduce your tastebuds gave me corn and sesame seeds for the shhh cooking secretly challenge, I immediately thought of the vegetable handvo. Obviously there were so many other corn recipes popping up in my mind as I love corn, but I couldn’t miss the opportunity to blog one of my written recipes. Before I proceed to the recipe, I must mention that Padmajha’s…
