Baked Samosa With Wheat Flour


baked samosa
Hubby loves samosa, but I always make sure he never has it. Yes, you may call me devil, but I really do not want him to serve him with any deep-fried stuff merely for his love for samosa.
So I decided to surprise him with a baked samosa instead, that too made of whole wheat flour, little suji, and besan. I must accept that there is a difference between wheat and maida. Maida (all purpose flour) tastes better but it isn't the healthiest option. So I tried with wheat, as I am watching our food intake closely.
Hubby's response "theek hai."
My baked samosa tastes good, though it may not be the best, as we get from the halwai or its fried alternative. But since health comes first, taste can wait!

Let's bake samosa now.
Knead the dough once again and make small balls. Take one ball and flatten it like a chapati. Cut into two halves and then fold one side over the other, as shown in the pic.
Add the filling and follow the same process with the rest of the dough.
Preheat oven (microwave convection mode) at 180 degrees for 8 mins.
Meanwhile, brush the samosa with oil as they are preparing to go into the oven.
Grease the tray and place the samosas over it.
Bake for 12 mins.  Then open the oven and turn the side of the samosas and bake for another 12 mins (may take more or less).

Keep an eye on your samosas.
Enjoy baked samosa guilt free with coriander or tamarind chutney.

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…
