Eggless Butter Cake

Butter cake is supposed to be one of the basic cakes in which the main ingredient is butter along with flour, eggs, and sugar. This month’s baking eggless group decided to turn this recipe into eggless version. As they have loads of butter they are supposed to be one of the quintessential cakes and require you to run an extra mile to digest this rich delicacy. I was putting off baking this recipe searching for Want to know more about this recipe?

Bolillos [Mexican Rolls]

Me too! I almost twisted my tongue trying to pronounce and I was so drawn to the name that I couldn’t stop my curiosity to get to know this recipe and try them immediately. I was searching for a new Mexican recipe to try, nothing that I’ve heard or tried before and my search landed me at Vaishali’s blog (holycowvegan ) and just as she had mentioned in her post I was totally drawn to Want to know more about this recipe?

Lauki Chole

I have successfully fought the urge to shop for the past two weeks. I’m referring to grocery shopping especially vegetable/Indian groceries as I tend to stock them up until I don’t have space in my refrigerator or my pantry as if an apocalypse is waiting to happen. I have taken an official oath in front of my husband that I’m gonna cook vegetables from the vegetable drawer as well as my frozen compartment before heading Want to know more about this recipe?

Pineapple Gojju [A typical Kannada Dish]

When I first tasted Gojju made by my friend I just knew I had to have the recipe and remake it at home. Somehow I never made a note of the recipe and I completely forgot about this dish until I saw it at Suma’s Veggie Platter. The recipe brought back some good memories of lunch sharing with my friend and the wonderful time we had together as colleagues. We usually enjoy pineapple slices sprinkled Want to know more about this recipe?

Kozhukattai (Rice Dumplings with Jaggery & Coconut)

Sweet Kozhukattai/modakam can be described as warm rice dumplings filled with a mixture of jaggery and coconut. I remember helping my mom whenever she cooked elaborate dishes such as kozhukattais and my mom has always encouraged my mishaps with a tender smile and reassuring words that I just need more practice. There is definitely a skill set required to make the cups for the base of the dumpling but nothing that can’t be mastered with Want to know more about this recipe?

Fried Idli Upma

Ok, seriously I didn’t know what else to make and I successfully managed to change a healthy dish into an unhealthy one. I felt very guilty frying idlis (I usually pan fry them with minimal oil) but wanted to taste the fried idlis as I do let my family(myself included) to occasionally indulge in such sinful foods. Idli upma is generally made by crumbling leftover idlis but this time I deep fried mini idlis and Want to know more about this recipe?

Broken Wheat Upma (Broken Wheat Pilaf)

Do you believe in miracles? I didn’t, until yesterday when my husband came home and said his lunch, which was “Broken Wheat Upma” was delicious. I didn’t know if I heard it right and alarmingly he repeated he loved it. I didn’t know I would hear it from the same man who abhors upma and who can give me 10 different expressions of hate and disgruntled tone with a single mention of the name upma.

Sabudana Upma (Tapioca Pearl Pilaf)

I can’t express my love for upma, I don’t know if its the ease in making or the mixed spicy taste that it provides with different textures all in one bite. My ears and eyes pop up every time some one mentions the name upma. My friends and I meet every Wednesday trying to catch up on local gossip (oh! I admit loud and clear that we love doing it) and more importantly share good Want to know more about this recipe?

Doodh Peda (Milk Sweet)

I always thought it would be much easier to cook with less ingredients  but when we (Avant Garde Cookies) decided to cook with 5 ingredients or less for this week’s theme I was totally blank not knowing what to cook. The frantic search and counting number of ingredients in a recipe was quite tedious and I admit, I found it way harder to cook with less ingredients.I am a person who believes “The more the Want to know more about this recipe?
