Badam aur Nariyal ki Barfi | Almond and Coconut Fudge

I made Almond and Coconut Fudge | Badam aur Nariyal ki Barfi for Ganesh Chaturthi this year . This is a very simple and quick recipe to prepare. Needless to say it tastes really yummy too. This barfi tastes best when you let it sit overnight. Though it might be difficult to do that once you have tasted it!!

Banana Oats Breakfast Cake | Eggless Baking

Banana Cake

Banana Bread or Banana Cake is a favorite in our home. I bake it at least once a month - and have many variations of  this delicious cake on my blog. I have baked Banana Cake with raising, with nuts, multi-grain flours, with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips - the list goes on! This latest is a wonderful Breakfast Cake as it is made with oats. Its dense, healthy, and nutritious and packs the power you need in a breakfast food. I love baking this Cake on weekends, for road trips, or to take along on hikes. At home I just warm a glass of milk and enjoy the cake with it. For the road I pack individual slices in cling film and add them to our snack packs. They are perfect with a hot glass of tea after a good long walk.

This year I decided to begin with making steamed snacks. I began with some Dhokla and the next on my list to make was Pithi | Peethi | Lentil Filled Rice Dumplings.

Til ke Laddu | Sesame Seeds Laddoo

Its Ganesh Chaturthi and I have been cooking up some yummy celebratory dishes. This year I made Til ke Laddu | Sesame Seeds Laddoo for the first day of Ganesh Chaturthi. Followed it up with Mumra Chikki, Amimi Kozukottai, and today I have made Dal Pitha. However, I have been slow to post all the yummy dishes that I have been cooking up for this festival season. In fact its been many days since I wrote a post at all. Last month was quite busy and while I made some great dishes and took the photos, I just could not find the time time to sit and get the writing done.
