The second ingredient PJ sent me is a flour which I couldn’t recognize. It looked a bit different from ragi flour and the flovour was totally new to me. I even put a pinch of it in my mouth to see whether I can identify the flour, but sadly no. I then messaged PJ and she gave me the answer. It is buckwheat flour/ Kuttu ka Atta which we don’t get in Tamil Nadu. But I have heard a lot about this flour and know that it is gluten free. There are so many Indian recipes I could try but who is going to eat? Myself and hubby are both on low carb diet and no type of atta can be consumed. Only Sruti can eat it but she will never eat ladoo or any other sweet. So I had choose a recipe so that my daughter would eat it without any reservation. That is how I came upon this cookie. Loaded with choco chips and butter scotch chips, I was sure, Sruti would love this.
Baking without oven is an interesting technique and it has been so popular in India. In fact my mom used to bake her cakes in a cast iron pan filled with sand which creates the required temperature inside needed for baking the cake. But after we got our first oven, we completely forgot about it. Once I started posting videos, I have had so many readers asking me to do recipes without oven. So I started baking with pressure cooker again. My first recipe Eggless Red Velvet Cake was a hit among viewers. So I made these soft and tender pav buns in pressure cooker for all those who love baking but don’t have access to oven.
Brioche is an enriched French bread with a very soft, tender crumb. Traditionally, it’s made with a good quantity of eggs and butter, but for those who don’t eat eggs for any reason, this recipe is definitely a keeper. And to make it more interesting I have used wheat flour or atta to make these buns. You can use it a sandwich/ burger bun or just taste it slathered with nutella or butter or jam. However you serve this it tastes so buttery and yum. This month’s Bread Bakers host Pavani of Cook’s Hideout wanted to make us healthy breads. So I used wheat flour in this recipe but I couldn’t skip butter as the whole recipe depends on butter.
After the two chocolate cupcakes in a row, here is a different one which is a favourite for most of the people I know. Red velvet is is my favourite too. Even though some are not very keen on the food colour used, I don’t mind tasting this once in a while. But still I need to try a recipe using beetroot for those who wants the all natural cupcake. These red velvet cupcakes are made with oil and so these can be decorated with cream frosting and can be refrigerated without loosing the moistness. And like most of the eggless cakes, this is a one bowl recipe. Mix everything in a bowl and bake.
