Peynirli Cicek Pogaca literally translates to Cheese Flower pastry. Pogaca are savoury pastries filled with cheese, olives and potatoes and available all over Turkish bakeries. They are enjoyed as breakfast or tea time treats. When I saw the shape of the breads, I just immediately decided to make it for this month’s #BreadBakers theme. The theme was to make a Mother’s day inspired flower bread. There are so many ways to make beautiful shaped breads and this is one of the easiest methods.

Empanadas are pastries or bread stuffed with meat or any other filling. This is a dish common in Spain and Latin American countries. It is either baked or deep fried according to the region it is served. These are so easy to pack and so makes a great snack to take on picnics. I am doing picnic hamper recipes for this week’s BM and this recipe is a part of the theme. As I mentioned earlier, you will be seeing international dishes this week.
Last month, I had so many hurdles and couldn’t even visit my blog regularly. But this month I am trying to get back on track. So I have enrolled for this month’s BM. The themes are quite interesting as always. For the first week, I have chosen the theme Picnic Hampers. So when you go on picnic, what can you take with you to fill the tummies of all the hungry family members. When I was a kid, mom used to make puliodharai and thayir saadam for every picninc we went. And after marriage, even my mom-in-law used to make the same combination. Looks like most of us have grown up with the same food. Even my daughter loves this food. So even I make the same when we go for a picnic. But what can we do if we want to make a change? Go for any food that is easy to pack and doesn’t spill or go bad in the journey. I will be sharing three international recipes which can be packed for picninc and I am sure kids would love it.
The next Swedish bread I made last week is the saffron bun. I am sure many of you would be familiar with this saffron bun. Saffron is added while kneading the dough and it gives an amazing colour to the final buns. These buns are made for Swedish Christmas time St Lucia feast on December 13th. Made in the shape of S, they are also studded with raisins.
I will be sharing the recipes for vegetarian paleo diet and meal plans so that those who follow vegetarian paleo find it easy to cook. When I started paleo, I didn’t even know what to make. But after 16 days of cooking, I have already got the hang of it. Using only vegetables and paneer, now I create new dishes everyday so that it doesn’t become a boring affair. Let us start with a basic recipe.
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.
