Of late, I have been experimenting with my own gluten-free flour mixes. Trying to increase the whole-grain content of GF flours is a challenge, since it can lead to some compromise in taste. Finding the right balance with other flavors is important.  🙂 Disclaimer: Although I have said this is a nut-free recipe, coconut oil

And I decided to try it out the healthier way, with unprocessed cocoa powder, coconut oil and lots of dried fruit and

A delicious, protein-rich snack in the form of patties or cutlets made with sprouted beans. I had some leftover black-eye bean sprouts that I had made sundal with, last week. We were tired of eating varieties of sundal for the Navaratri festival, and our taste buds were begging for some other form of snack. Quickly

  Navaratri is an Indian festival that motivates me to make an Indian sweet, as I call people home to celebrate the function in the evening. Last week, I had fresh coconut with me and thought of making a variation of my mango halwa. Alas, I did not have any mango pulp or the fruit

  When I visit a Health & Wellness store, I can go crazy buying unprocessed foods including superfoods. It is my aim to use as much of it in everyday food. Superfoods being loaded with antioxidants and minerals, are best consumed in raw or minimally cooked form to get the full benefits. After all, we

  Seedai is a deep-fried traditional dish that is made for Krishna Janmashtami or the birthday of Lord Krishna. Every time that I have tried making these for the festival, the seedai pops in the oil, with a violent ‘explosion’, always a disaster, leaving me in a state of shock.

Dosas are versatile in that many combinations work well. This time, I tried a combination of sprouted whole grain bajra or pearl millet along with urad dal (black gram dal). I got this inspiration from my mother who recalled reading about this in a women’s magazine in India. I used a non stick orgreenic pan

  A few days ago, I realized that there is no simple banana bread recipe on this blog! My kids do not like simple banana bread; somehow the taste of just wheat and banana does not appeal to them. I have date syrup with me, so this time when I found 2 overripe bananas with
