Great for fasting days and equally perfect as a power-packed everyday snack!!!!


You can make almond ladoos with condensed milk alone or sugar syrup following the same style. It was a super easy process. 













Almonds Benefits:


  • Help manage blood glucose levels
  • Add dietary fiber and aid in digestion
  • Make a powerful snacking option
  • Are loaded with vitamins & minerals, making them a complete health food



Health benefits of almonds have been a matter of discussion for centuries, with no controversies whatsoever. Eat them raw or toasted; flakes or sliced, slivered or floured or simply turn them into almond milk or almond butter. 

Believe me or not, almond butter makes a great substitute to clarified butter. I have tried an almond butter cake, without adding a single drop of oil or butter and it turned out amazingly delicious.This delicious cake was ready in 2 minutes. yes, this was a mug cake.

You might also want to try almond butter whole wheat cake.

You may also make almond butter kulfi, which is seriously healthylicious and does not use cream or sugar!  Almond butter does the magic here while honey adds subtle sweetness to this seriously addictive kulfi.


Trust me, the almond butter kulfi sans oats makes a delicious navratri recipe.


Almond Benefits

Almonds come with several health benefits. Unlike other types of nuts that are high in bad cholesterol, almonds raise good cholesterol levels. Try this health food and you will fall in love with the recipe!


According to a study published in the American Dietetic Association Journal, almonds raise vitamin E levels in the red blood cells and plasma. The study also claims that almonds for cholesterol are really beneficial and help in lowering LDL while raising HDL levels. The nuts help improve blood lipid levels and are thus great for the heart functioning.

Another study published in the Cancer Letters claims that almonds may help reduce colon cancer risk. In fact, eat almonds regularly to boost your body's cancer'fighting properties. Of course, you cannot change your genes, but you certainly can alter the behavior of genes with the type and amount of food you eat.

Though almond benefits outnumber their side effects, if you are allergic to nuts, avoid consuming them.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
