Buttermilk Brownies

A delicious fudgy brownie made more interesting with the addition of buttermilk! Over the years of baking, I have come to realize that adding buttermilk to your baked goodies makes it extra moist and soft. I have a lot of chocolate cake recipes that uses buttermilk. And when I came across a recipe that uses buttermilk, I had to try it out! Needless to say, this was another super tasty and fudgy brownie!

Green peas are a wonderful source of nutrition. They are rich in protein and vitamins and that's why it is also one of the first foods given to babies. Apparently, 1/2 cup of cooked green peas has 4 times more protein than carrots! So green peas are a wonderful source of protein for vegetarians. They have a low glycemic index and green peas are rich in fiber too. There are many ways to cook the green peas, this kind of poriyal is a South Indian speciality and it goes very well with sambar or rasam rice.

Jelly Boats

I don't make jellies at home as kids are not too fond of it but someone gave me 2 packs of jellies and I did not want to waste it and I made these cute little boats. I have seen these pictures in pinterest and wanted to try them out. Sure enough, seeing the little boats my kids were pretty excited to try them! You can make these for birthday parties and I'm sure it will be a huge hit among the kids!

Which ever way you choose to have it, this is a healthy tasty dish! You can make it dry like how I have made here or make it like a gravy too. I made it dry as the dry version goes well with rice.

Egg Chapathi | Egg Chapathi Roll

My kids like to take chapathi to school but they want to eat the chapathi only with curd. They don't like eating it with any veggies. This recipe is an easy way to make their lunch more healthy. The addition of eggs makes it protein rich and it makes the chapathi tasty too. You can add some vegetable stuffing in the middle and roll it up too. But my kids don't like it that way so I simply cut this up and pack it with curd.

Keerai Thandu Poriyal

Keerai thandu poriyal is a stirfry made with only the stems of the keerai. I make a lot of keerai poriyal and my kids don't like eating the stems of the greens. So my maid suggested this recipe where you can cook the stems separately and make a poriyal out of it. The stems are already so tender so it cooks pretty well. I put it in the pressure cooker to make sure it was well cooked so that my kids will not fuss about it!
