Leftover Rice Cutlet: Healthy Snacking Option

I have made leftover rice cutlets earlier. Made these today especially for a neighbor next door, who was celebrating his 75th birthday.

You can't get happier than this - bringing smiles on other's faces. Can you?
Not at least in my case. As I am not a foodie, I never cook for myself (except cookies). I cook to get a first-hand experience of healthy recipes. My mission is to find a balance between health & food.

I try to include healthy ingredients in my recipes, so everyone can enjoy healthy recipes. This is why I opened the group "Healthy Recipes by Homemakers" in Facebook, where talented homemakers from across the world share healthy recipes.

This group is an open invitation to anybody willing to share or learn everything about healthy eating.

2 boiled potatoes
2 tbsp- hung curd

A Little Story behind This Mango Cake

The smile you can bring on the face of someone through your trivial efforts does not have a match. It was the birthday of a 75-year-old neighbor, who does not have a strong financial background. Moreover, his only son, who is around 40 years, is not mentally strong enough to work outside. The boy remains with his pensioner dad, as his mother left for heavenly abode 6-7 years back.
Anyway so today was the old man's birthday. …

No Cream No Sugar Mango Oats Kulfi

After my friend Ritu had tried the mango oats ice cream, I thought of giving it a try. I wonder if anybody, except Ritu, would think of such combination. But she is a big oats lover. Rightly so, her focus is on healthy eating and health food.

I added oats to my kulfi a couple of days back. It did not disappoint. Rather, I loved how oatmeal adds that creamy layer to the kulfi, without the need to add cream. This means this recipe gives you no extra calories from cream while offering the benefit of fiber. No health freak would ever want to miss this mango kulfi. Will you?

Anyway let's come back to the healthy dessert recipe.








Ingredients
1 mango -pureed
1 tbsp- oatmeal (you may dry roast oats first - I didn't)
2 tbsp- thick/hung curd (check the above  video to learn how to make instant hung curd at home- no cloth, no hanging required)
1/2 cup-milk
1 tsp- roohafzaah/rose essence (you may add more since we are not including sugar in the recipe - I like it less sweet, so added 1 tsp…

Baking With Oat Flour: Nutty Oatmeal Cookies

Yes, it's cookies time again. Of course, these days I do not bake cookies without oatmeal. This healthy blend of oatmeal, almond meal, and wheat flour, with a hint of gram flour and a dash of semolina, makes these cookies a perfect accompaniment to your tea, without compromising the taste & health.


Here's my another take on healthy cookies with oats. A healthy blend of oats, wheat flour, besan, and almond meal - nutrients and fiber!

What more could you ask for if you can get cookies with these healthy ingredients?

Still have doubts?

Well, let's see how to make this healthy oatmeal recipe.

Mango is the king of fruits. I love it, you love it, and we all are fond of this pulpy, tangy, sweet, luscious fruit. The only person I know who doesn't like mango is my SIL (strange but true - yea, everyone has a choice). Anyway, in continuation of my food experiments, this time I have come up with a stunner.

My last burfi got really good reviews from different food groups. On top of it, hubby loved it. This gave me the confidence to introduce the king of fruits to my sweets experimentation spree. I was unsure how my experiment with a strange combination of oats and mango would come up, but I am writing this note while enjoying one of the healthiest sweets on earth.
