Eggless Dates Walnut Muffins | Dates Walnut Muffins Recipe

Dates Walnut Muffins

For the past three years, I always wanted to try out Dates and Walnut Muffins or Cake recipes. It did not happen for a long tme. Last week, I bought a big pack of good quality dates. Why I have stressed so much on quality is because sometimes they just soak low quality dates in some syrup and sell it in a reasonable price.

Pomegranate Raita

It is a pomegranate season here, so Gj bought some pomegranates day before yesterday. I used some for Fruit Salad and the rest I used for Pomegranate Raita. I made Vegetable Pulao and Pomegranate Raita went very well with it. I have posted many Raitas like Apple and Grapes Raita, Mint Yoghurt Raita, Coriander Yoghurt Raita etc. This raita has the tinge of sweet as well as sour flavor. It is very similar to Onion Raita and very simple and easy to make. It also serves as a good dessert. Try it and you would love it.

Instant Kadalai Mavu Dosa |Besan Ka Chilla | Besan Ka Cheela

Instant Kadalai Mavu Dosa

Instant Kadalai Mavu Dosa is a recipe that I learned last year. It is a very handy recipe, and you can make it anytime with the available ingredients at home. You can make this recipe once in awhile at home and eat it with a spicy chutney. Usually, you don’t need a chutney for this recipe but I like to have it with a spicy chutney (I am so used to eat with chutney.) Some of my friends have it with ketchup. This recipe is perfect to have as breakfast. Enjoy the Besan Dosa!
