Kollu Podi | Horse gram Powder

Horse gram or Kollu is a super food which has lots of health benefits. I came to know about the value of kollu when we took our daughter to a doctor for a problem that she had and he told us to include kollu in her diet atleast 2 days a week and hence I started my research on horse gram and came to of all it's health benefits.


Kollu Podi

Kollu is extremly rich in iron, protein and calcium. It also aids in digestion, weight loss, reduces cholesterol, is a diuretic, rich in anti oxidants and so many more benefits.

I have been looking for ways to include this in our weekly diet and make it tasty as well so this is the first recipe I tried. This kollu podi is an adaptation of my idli podi recipe and it came out very well. I also added lots of curry leaves to make it more rich in iron.

This podi can be had with idli/dosa or even rice.

Chocolate Banana Cake

I do a lot of baking with bananas since that is the most common fruit at home and if it's about to go waste, I bake something with it. This is one such bake. Bananas and chocolate goes very well together and if you add some cinnamon and walnut to the mix, it just becomes too delicious!

Chocolate Banana Cake

There are plenty of banana bakes in my blog as this is a favorite at home and it always comes out so well. This recipe is from joy of baking and as usual it's a winner! The cake turned out so moist, dense and fudgy, almost like a brownie!

Mint Chocolate Ice Cream

I never used to try recipes with mint essence since I never got it where I lived. And then I made this mint chocolate milkshake using mint toffees and I thought of trying this ice cream also with the same and it worked out very well!
I love the flavor of mint and chocolate together so I was looking forward to tasting it. This ice cream, as all other ice creams, tasted absolutely yum!

Chocolate Panna Cotta

This is another recipe that I made for the potluck with my friends. This potluck happened close to a year ago and I'm still not done posting those recipes!! I've really been slacking off!

Anyway, I love panna cotta and I'm always looking for excuses to make these. I have already posted coffeemango and strawberry panna cotta, this time I wanted to make chocolate panna cotta since chocolate is always a favorite among many.

Mochai Kottai Kuzhambu | Kuzhambu Recipes

My mom makes a lot of mochakottai kuzhambu and I simply love it! My childhood memories are all filled with me picking up and eating the softly cooked mochai every time I go by the kitchen!
This is the dried variety of mochai and it is called as field beans in English. When ever I want to make kuzhambu and don't have the appropriate veggies for kuzhambu, I always make this mochai kuzhambu.

Peanut Butter Ice Cream

This summer I made lots of lots of dishes for my baked section but I'm just not able to find time to write! To everybody to asked about me, thank you so much for your concern and well wishes, hopefully I will be back to active blogging soon!


Peanut Butter Ice Cream

I made this ice cream a couple of months back for my daughter's friend and her family. Whenever I think of what to take with me when visiting someone, they always ask me for ice creams or cakes! Bored of always making chocolate and vanilla ice cream, I tried some peanut butter ice cream and it turned out really yum! I used a whole cup of peanut butter and that made my ice cream thick, you can choose to add a little less than a cup too. But if you want an ice cream that tastes peanut buttery then go for a full cup!

Sweet Ragi Adai

I have been looking to add ragi in our diet and my mum suggested making sweet ragi adai for the kids. Ragi is very healthy and it's good to include it in our diet atleast twice or thrice a week. This adai can be made for breakfast or even for evening snack, I'm sure kids will love it.

Brownie Mousse Shots

It was mela time again at my husband's office and like last year my husband was putting up a food stall and we were brainstorming on what to make this year. I wanted to make something different from last year's egg free marble cupcakes so we settled on some dessert instead of cakes/cupcakes. 


Brownie Mousse Shots

And after much contemplation we decided on these mousse shots and it ended up to be a great decision! These mousse shots were the first to disappear and I was even stopped by his CEO and appreciated for the fantastic taste of these shot! I was very happy to have made my husband proud!!

I made this egg free since my husband wanted only egg free desserts. You can choose brownies with eggs and mousse with eggs too.
There is another brownie + mousse combination in my blog which is totally yum, check out this chocolate mousse brownie recipe.
