I make this for lunch every alternate day so that I don’t get bored of the cauliflower rice. I even add the roasted veggies to cauliflower rice to make it more interesting. Today I will share with you the easiest way of making this. You just need to slice up the veggies, add the spices and ghee, give a nice mix and bake in oven till done. Doesn’t it sound easy? It is also so delicious and can be put together easily enough.
I am on paleo diet for almost two months now and I try to maintain it properly. Snacking can be a problem when it comes to paleo if you are unaware of the tricks to make delicious snacks. I am yet to learn those tricks. I think I will get there in a few months. I usually snack on almonds and curd. But recently, I am trying to incorporate more cheese into my diet. This grilled eggplant is one way of adding cheese without affecting the diet. When I announced that I am making an eggplant pizza, my daughter was curious. She wanted to remove the eggplant pieces from the pizza and eat the remaining. But she didn’t expect that the eggplant itself is the base for these mini pizzas. She was totally disappointed.
Almonds is an important part of vegetarian paleo diet. So how come high fat almonds are considered diet food? In paleo we try to reduce carb intake and increase fat intake. The energy needed are got from the fat consumed and do not worry, it will not increase your weight. I have been on paleo for the past 24 days and I am so happy with my weight reduction. I haven’t checked my weight for now, but the dress which was in my cupboard for more than a year is fitting me nicely. I will be sharing more recipes here.

From my childhood days, I have been a great fan of puffs. The flaky crispy pastry with a savoury filling always makes my mouth water. When I was in college, we bought a small oven. We also had a book which covered all the basic baking recipes including the Indian bakery style puffs. I noted down the recipe and tried it. As you can imagine, it was a great flop. So from that day, I stopped trying puffs at home and enjoyed them in bakeries. After four years, I stopped eating eggs and completely avoided eating puffs at bakery.
Do you remember the Desi Burger chat I made a week back? I got some great feedback regarding the bun I used in that recipe. I mentioned that I will be posting the recipe soon. And here it is. A delicious flavourful bun which can be used for sandwiches and burgers. Usually onions give a nice sweet flavour in baked goodies. So when I saw the recipe at KAF I tried it immediately.
After two sweets for Christmas celebrations, I am here with a savoury recipe. This is an enriched dough with butter and it is so soft. It was supposed to resemble a Christmas tree, but as the dough was very soft, it spread out too much in the tray. So the final bread didn’t even resemble a tree. But still they were so soft and when served warm, they just were gone in seconds. If you are trying this, try to make it in a 10″ round cake tin instead of the tray. You will get some beautiful pull apart rolls.
Ever since I saw the desi burger chat in Vaishali’s space, I was itching to try it out. And then I was one recipe less for this week’s marathon. And there was some buns in my pantry. So I decided to finish this week’s BM with this delicious fusion chat. I know the buns look super cute, but you will have to wait for the recipe. It has been reserved for December. But you can use any burger bun to make this chat. I am sure most of you will have green chutney and sweet chutney in your fridge. Then it is really easy to put together. This chat is from the streets of Haridwar.
So what is a cheese bomb? Small bread dough filled with cheese and baked to perfection. Nothing fancy. When you break open the cute looking bread roll, the molten cheese will ooze out making it a great snack for kids. I am sure kids would love to see the molten cheese. In fact my daughter was so thrilled at the cheese inside the roll. I made it for her after school snack and she just loved it.
I am back with the next Blogging Marathon week. This week, I will post three recipes which can be made for Kid’s birthday parties. Last week, I bought a mozarella cheese pack, and I wanted to use it in the snacks for this week. The first recipe is for calzone. Calzone are yeast breads, usually filled with sweet or meat fillings and are shaped like half moon. There is also fried version of calzone, where the prepared dough is fried instead of baking. Pizza calzone is a variation of calzone usually filled with pizza toppings.
