kaddu chutney, bengal gram chutney
It was kaddu or pumpkin day in my kitchen today. I tried kaddu raita, kaddu buttermilk, and kaddu chutney and savored all of these with dosa! Yum platter it was!

The decision to make kaddu or pumpkin chutney came all of a sudden. It's very simple to prepare this tasty, tangy, and healthy chutney.
Let's see what all I have included here!












Ingredients
kaddu
1/2 tsp- chana dal
1/2 tsp - urad dal
1/4 tsp- mustard seeds
1/2 tsp- oil
1 small piece of tamarind (I used sweet tamarind chutney) If you are using tamarind, then keep it for boiling along with little sugar for 8-10 mins
Tomato -1 (if you do not want to use tamarind - I used imli instead of tomato)
Salt, black salt
Green chilly
4-5 mint leaves

Procedure
kaddu chutney pumpkin chutney


  1. Cut pumpkin into small pieces and boil with little salt and turmeric for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Let them cool down.
  3. Take oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds,chana dal and urad dal. Let them splutter on low flame.
  4. Add green chilly. Mix and switch off the flame. However, if you are using tomato instead of tamarind, cut tomato into small pieces and add to the tempering. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes and its juices blend with the tempered ingredients. Turn off the flame and let them cool.
  5. Pour the tempering over the pumpkin pieces.
  6. Add this mixture into the grinder along with tamarind paste and 2-3 mint leaves. 
  7. Add little sugar and black salt.
  8. Run the processor for 2-3 minutes or until you get paste.
  9. Your tasty, tangy pumpkin chutney is ready!
  10. Garnish with coriander or mint leaves. Enjo!

Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

What I did next was exactly this!
My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat
Yes, my dear…

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
