Eggless Banana and Walnut bread (Vegan)


Today , I present to you a very easy to prepare loaf cake. Egg-less Banana Walnut Bread is very easy to prepare  that even your kids can make it:) I have kept this recipe vegan by using almond milk and oil instead of regular milk and butter. But if you wish you can very well use them.I have used toasted walnuts in this recipe that add a very beautiful flavor to this bread/cake. This is a perfect coffee or tea time cake/bread.

Quinoa  (pronounced as "KEEN-WAAH") is a flowering plant that belongs to the amaranth family. The seeds are harvested and processed to remove the bitter tasting outer seed coat. Quinoa has  a good amount of protein and dietary fiber among many other nutritional values. Today I am sharing with you all "Quinoa Upma".  Serve this hot upma with some chilled yogurt and have a healthy , fulfilling meal:)

Avocado Parata / Flatbread



Avocado (also known as Alligator pear) , is botanically a large berry consisting of one large seed. This is one fruit , we eat a lot in our house. Usually, I prepare "Guacamole" which we eat with chips or as a spread with toasted bread. But on other occasions, I prepare a tasty flatbread with avocado. Due to the buttery texture of the avocado, these flatbreads/paratas turn out very soft and you can roll it very thin too. Serve it with a curry of choice or yogurt and you have a delicious meal:)

Dal Makhani Rice (Instant pot method)





Today, I present to you a simple and delicious rice dish using left over Dal Makhani. Last weekend, I had guests  for whom I had prepared Dal Makhani. There was quite a lot left over. We ate the Dal makhani the next day for lunch too. There was still a cup left over. So, instead of eating it again for dinner, I decided to create a little twist and voila , Dal Makhani rice was born:)
