For the second day, here is one more easy breezy dessert you can put together in around fifteen minutes. I am not going for any traditional recipes this week, but am just giving you some good ideas for any party you will be doing for easter or some other occasion. Ever since I bought a pack of dried rose petals from Delhi, I have been using it to top my desserts. My daughter loves it and being the only one who is trying out the desserts, I am quite happy to add the rose petals on them. They look so good and tastes great too.

Black forest cake is one of the hot selling cakes in any bakery. And even the recipe in my blog and YouTube have got a good number of views. Whenever I post cake recipes, I get so many requests for cooker cakes. In India, before OTGs came into normal day to day use, pressure cookers were the ovens for most of the housewives, including my mom. My mom used to add some fine sand in the bottom of a cooker or a cast iron pan and baked cakes in it. The sand used to maintain even heat throughout the pan and so the cake baked will turn out so good. I started pressure cooker baking only after some viewers asked me for the recipe.
This month’s Bread Bakers host Mayuri of Mayuri’s Jikoni wanted us to make pancakes. And it can be a regular one or from any part of the world. When I was browsing through the blogs, I found that there are so many types of pancakes around the world and even our dosas come under the same category. I was looking for easy recipes and as it involves maida, I wanted to make a small batch. I saw the Greek version of pancakes usually served with honey. When I read the recipes, I found there were two recipes for the tiganites. One is like the usual pancake made with flour, milk and eggs but the other one was made with yeast and had no eggs. So I chose to make the yeasted tiganites.
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.
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.
Wishing You All A Very Happy Pongal
Harvest Festival is celebrated in different parts of India with different names but it is such a great part of our people. Fresh produce is used to make festive dishes and people take part in various games, they visit temples, visit relatives and friends and this is such a joyous occasion. I remember celebrating Sankranti in Mysore. We used to dress up so nicely and take ellu bella packs to all the neighbours and friends and it used to be so amazing. But nowadays, the getting together is missing so much. I myself confine myself to our home. Without mom, there is no one to talk to and it is becoming so boring nowadays. Guess, this is the side effect of getting old!!
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.
