Finally we are into the fourth and final week of Blogging Marathon for this month. This week I chose to do Book marked theme. We can post dishes bookmarked from fellow bloggers during this week. To start with, I am doing a simple yet delicious dish from Sandhya of My Cooking Journey. I had bookmarked a bread from her blog and I wanted to try it but as I am doing only simple recipes nowadays, I opted for this Curd Oats. It also suits my healthy cooking so much. Sandhya used steel cut oats but I get only quick cooking oats here. So I reduced the amount of water used for cooking and this is cooked in minutes compared to the steel cut oats.

For the second day of Blogging Marathon Week 3, I prepared a recipe from Hudson Canola’s Good Mood Food. When I received a pack of Hudson Canola Oil, there was a recipe book in the pack. There were so many lovely recipes but as usual I never tried them. So at least for the sake of BM I wanted to try a recipe. As I had all the ingredients needed for this recipe, I made it for our evening snack. It is a combination of nutritious ingredients and is shallow fried in canola oil to make it more healthy. I served the cakes with sweet and green chutney. The cakes were very soft and very delicious. The combination of green and sweet chutneys was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed these cakes.
