Sabudana Khichdi (with a bellpeppers)

Sabudana Khichdi is one of the most popular dishes belonging to Maharashtrian cuisine. A simple , yet so fulfilling dish , it can be had with tea or pair it with yogurt to have as a meal:) I have made a very simple change to this popular dish by adding some bell peppers. The flavor of the bell peppers compliments this dish really well. Personally, I love to load this khichdi with loads of roasted peanut powder , shredded coconut and cilantro. The sweetness from the peanut powder marries well with the spice of the red chili powder and tang of lemon juice.

Quinoa salad

After back to back posts of sweet treats (Almond biscotti, Buttermilk Fruit cake and Baklava), I am back with a healthy and delicious salad recipe "Quinoa Salad". This is not only highly nutritious but very very tasty. Apart from quinoa, the salad has a good amount of apples, cucumber, raisins, spring onion, pomegranates, walnuts and bell pepper. But apart from these veggies, a key component of this salad is "Cilantro" or dhania leaves. I have used a very simple dressing for this salad.I made a dressing with Olive oil, lemon juice , salt and pepper. The veggies used in the salad can be changed. You can add more veggies of your choice or eliminate a few. The salad can be customized as per your liking.

Baklava, popular middle-eastern sweet is a rich pastry dessert made of fillo sheets filled with a nut mixture and sweetened with a aromatic syrup. Baklava is supposed to have originated in Turkey but is popularly made in Greece, Bulgaria etc. Each country adds its own touch or twist to this amazing sweet. Today, I present you my version of this pastry dessert "Baklava" with  walnut-pistachio filling.

Almond biscotti (Italian cookies)

Biscottis are crunchy italian cookies. Biscotti is derived from the latin word "biscoctus" meaning twice baked. So as the name suggests preparation of this cooking involves two steps of baking. Ingredients are mixed, shaped into a log and baked. Then it is cut into pieces and baked again. Today, I share with you all a simple and easy recipe for ALMOND BISCOTTI.
