After baking with two ingredients, I am making a traditional recipe for the third day. For this week of BM, the theme is quite interesting. Two bloggers exchange ingredients through mail and we are supposed to cook with the ingredients which we received. I was paired with PJ and the third ingredient she sent me was the mixed millet rava. When I saw the rava, I knew that it was millet rava, but I couldn’t say which millet. So I asked PJ and she told that it is mixed millet rava. It is a nutritious ingredient and I was thinking about recipes I could use it for.

For the second day of mini bakes, I chose to do mini bread rolls. Usually kids like rolls that are buttery and soft, and it is rare that kids like those artisan breads which is so crusty. My daughter loves those crusty breads. When I first made the crusty bread, I was not sure whether I need to serve it for hubby and Sruti. Hubby didn’t like it as I predicted, but Sruti loved it so much. I don’t know how she likes these types of rolls, but she loves to have it with nutella/ peanut butter/ jam. When I saw the recipe I didn’t even think twice as I have a huge fan at home.
Milk or yogurt can be used as the base of any smoothie. I have already tried with milk but have never done with yogurt. So for today’s post I tried adding yogurt in my smoothie. This is also part of my diet and I loved having this. But let me share with you the experience I had with today’s smoothie. As I can’t add sugar, I thought the apple’s sweetness would be enough for the smoothie. But when I made it, I felt it very bland. I have never felt this way with milk based smoothies. My daughter tried a sip and gave me back the glass.
Smoothies are so easy to make. Add whatever fruit you have it at hand with milk or yogurt and run it in a mixer. Your smoothie is ready in a minute. If you are following normal diet, add sugar as per your taste. But as I have mentioned earlier, I am on paleo diet and sugar is a great no no. Even fruits and milk has to be had in moderation . That is why we divided the amount given in the recipe into three portions and had it in the evening.
I love the taste of musk melon and we used to cube it, add sugar and serve it chilled. When I saw this at the fruit shop, I bought home one to make the above preparation. But then I started paleo diet and I didn’t want to add sugar to it. I was also not sure whether my daughter would like it as she is the only person who is having sugar at home. So I decided to make a smoothie instead. When I sliced the musk melon, I was surprised that it was not at all sweet.
For the final day of Chinese recipes, here is a delicious veg manchow soup for you. I am not a huge fan of soups. The only soup I make often is made with drumstick leaves and is often taken a a medicine than for fun. But after I shifted to paleo, I have been making soups daily and I am also enjoying it thoroughly. Most of my time in kitchen is spent in cutting vegetables. I use lots of cabbage, carrots and mushrooms daily and this soup uses all these veggies and makes a great filling meal. Yes, you heard it right, this is what I made for dinner. If you are serving it as an appetizer, then thicken the soup with corn flour. The amount will serve minimum six persons, but if you are having this as your whole dinner, then the given amount will serve only two persons.
