My son is finishing his first year at school and his institution is having a small party for kids.Parents were asked to send some simple party snacks and my friend Gouthami suggested this Baked Potato Wedges recipe from her blog last evening.She also suggested me to make the preparation works at night so that I can just bake /toast on a tawa today morning. I gave small tweaks to her recipe and made everything ready last night.I was so scared because I had failed twice before in baking gobi and potatoes but today baked potato wedges turned out to be a super hit.I am saving this recipe for all my further attempts.The colour , texture , taste ,flavour of baked potato wedges was so perfect and super yummy. And an additional good thing about this recipe is you make it by just shallow frying in a tawa too. Come let’s see the recipe while I keep waiting for my son to get back with his feedback.

Eggless BeetRoot Cupcakes without Raising Agents|Eggless Red velvet Cake for toddlers and kids

Today’s recipe is Egg less Red Velvet Cupcakes or Egg lees Beetroot Cup Cakes.This Red Velvet Cake/Beetroot cake has no APF/maida,no white sugar,no raising agents,no butter and trust me it was done in a jiffy. Don’t you feel tempted to give it a try? Baking is simply therapeutic and easy if you begin loving it.My love for baking with healthy ingredients can’t be explained really.I wanted to try an egg less red velvet kind of a cake with natural colouring using beetroots and some baking without raising agents(baking powder/baking soda).I didn’t have much courage to give it a try because there were too many to experiment like no white flour,no white sugar,no raising agents,no artificial colouring and lots. All of these are pretty much different from the usual recipes.And above all we wanted to do some topping with frosting cream too. Too much na for a beginner???I know 😉 I got some courage from my friends Kalai Rajesh,Ravneet Kaur and Gouthami(Click here for her recipe) who posted similar experimentation in the recent days.  The trial session went on last weekend and it came out pretty well except for few corrections which I learnt from experts. I have included all details under my observations.Please read the recipe in detail and give it try. There was also a cranberry choco cake made with the same combinations which will be posted this week soon.

Dry Yellow Peas Fritters|Pattani Paruppu Vadai|Masala Vadai

Happy New year and belated Pongal wishes folks 🙂 I am back a long vacation. I hope all of you are keeping good health out there.We all love quick bites like vadai /bajji/fritters when they home made. I would like to highlight a point here .Fried Foods are always not unsafe,especially deep fried foods.Deep fried foods when not taken regularly and not cooked in used oil/refined oils is definitely safe when taken in moderation.Trust me ,even ghee fried foods are safe.It is best to use seed oils for regular use if possible cold pressed.Our family have always been using coconut oil and sesame oil only. Masala Vadai/Paruppu Vadai is one of my favourite snacks,that too on a chill evening with cool breeze.You can definitely gobble 2 to 3 with no guilt.

GHEE FRIED POHA|SWEET FRIED POHA

How many of you crave for a simple munch on or a “karack morak” snack at times? I do at times. I control myself saying snacking is bad most of the times. But when I am out of control I prefer making some instant snacks at home and have few spoons. One such instant quick snack is this recipe. I honestly didn’t know how to name the dish. I just randomly came up with this. Please ping me if you have some suggestions. This is usually made in the vessel which had been used to melt butter in the process of making ghee. Amma does not wash the vessel with the residue. She makes fried poha and then washes it. So everytime when ghee is made at home from butter (Check home made butter recipe here) , you can find this fried poha in our snack table. Continue reading “GHEE FRIED POHA|SWEET FRIED POHA”
