Dhokla is a specialty snack of Gujarat; but now easily available in all parts of India. Dhokla is a savory steamed light, airy and spongy snack similar to a cake. It is made with besan which is the main ingredient along with some baking powder, which plays an important role in puffing up the dhokla. It is then steamed and then tossed is a mustard seeds tadka. Well this was the traditional description, in today’s recipe we have gone a step further and given it a twist. We have marinated the steamed dhokla into a delicious spicy yougurt base tandoori masala, and then tossed it in a pan. Yummy and super easy to make. Let’s get started!
Here’s how to make a delicious Atta Cake, or in other words Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake, all made in a pressure cooker.
Not only this cooker cake is high in fiber, but has no added white sugar. This naturally sweet cake is a perfect snack along dish to have with a cup of tea or coffee.
Loaded with the goodness of dates, now why don’t you try it out? Oh yes, this can be added to your diet if you’re a diabetic patient, in small servings 🙂
Let’s get to it.
Making an atta cake is that easy. Now why don’t you try it out and share a virtual treat with me?
The cake is irresistibly delicious, one literally cannot judge if there is any sugar added. I agree, there is a lot of sugar in this cake in the form of dates and stevia. But that’s natural, and not refined white sugar. And you can easily decrease the amount. Stevia is optional to add, but I like the touch of bitterness it gives in this, that just spikes the sweetness 🙂
That’s all for today, Keep cooking & stay fantastic!
What better than a hot cup of coffee with some crunchy onion pakoras on a cool breezy evening. We love our pakoras for sure.
But, wait, these ones are bit different, I tell you. These super crunchy little pakoras are a delight! This recipe had been shared to me by a dear neighbour, who happens to be Sindhi. These sanna pakoras are called sanna, cause I understand sanna means small. There is no much difference in the making of these from the old style pakoras, but the double frying & lotsa coriander does the trick!
Its been a while that I have posted something in the line Egg-less baking without Oven. What better than this time of the year, cool breezy mornings-evenings, and the start of winters. Winters along with them bring a surprise every year, with some many festivities round the corner, Christmas is definitely not a miss. In fact, today’s recipe is dedicated to Christmas, perfect for gifting, and a plus no alcohol used.
Easy peasy, not much soaking involved, and a perfect season’s greeting!
So, without further ado, here is the recipe.
I love the little crunch from cashews and walnuts and plus the goey texture is heaven from tutti-fruity. A must try for this season. Do pour in your thoughts upon this delicacy in the comments below.
Dhoklas is something I gorge on often, not just because these little steamed cakes are healthy, light, spongy & high on protein, but also because I love them! 😀
My mom makes these Khaman Dhoklas using curd which are an absolute delight, and I thought why not share the recipe with you as well? She personally loves Onion Dhoklas, recipe for that in the notes section 🙂
Here’s the video recipe 🙂
You just can’t go wrong with this, try it & share your feedback with us 🙂
Deepawali or Diwali, the brightest festival of the year is here and this time around, we’ve curated two recipes for you to stir up, serve & impress your guests!
The best part? Both of these recipes are damn easy to make and are as scrumptious to the palate.. Why delay? Let’s get started.
Puri Chaat, a distance cousin of Raj Kachori. Easier to make, easier to impress your guests. I mean literally who can say no to a chaat. I can’t. Ofcourse, I’m a chatora. 😛
A crisp puri with bubbling hot vatana, ice cold sweet yogurt, tangy tamarind chutney, zingy coriander chutney, spices, sev, onions is this.
That’s easy ain’t it? Make it & Enjoy 🙂
This recipe was inspired by my relative Manisha Bhabhi, her mom makes a slight different version of this. She calls it Bhar ke Puri and she recently started blogging at www.foodnspoons.com. She shared her mom’s recipe for Bhar ke Puri with me years back, and since then I’ve been making it every now and then with different variations and it comes out great all the time 🙂 Check out her version here.
That’s all for today, one more diwali special recipe to come very soon! 🙂
But seriously, this cake is divine.. I’ve made it a lot of time in past and failed to make as well.. But now, It comes out perfect everytime and has a delectably amazing flavor of all spice along with the light & spongy texture..
This cake can be had just as a tea time cake, or can be frosted with cream cheese or any icing for that matter. But I like to just with some icing sugar on top.. You can bake this in a loaf pan, a bundt pan or any shape
Believe me, carrot cake does sound boring at first.. But it is such a thing you get addicted to! It has happened with me and all of us in the family.. The light, soft & spongy texture is sooo goooodd! So, let’s get on with the recipe, shall we?
It’s easy to make, and tastes yummy.. Why don’t you try it & let me know how it goes?
