Kaddu Raita (Pumpkin Yogurt Curry)

kaddu raita 
Kaddu was never a favorite this side. However, ever since I tasted kaddu sabzi (pumpkin curry) in a community kitchen in Khadur Saheb, I have developed special liking for pumpkin. Nevertheless I had never thought of trying kaddu ka raita unless I came across my dear friend Tanvee Sharda's heirloom kaduu raita recipe.

Finally, I have given it a try and amazingly, the unique blend of pumpkin and curd tastes yum! I made my own adjustments to the recipe.



Ingredients
1/4 pumpkin (sliced into small pieces)
1 cup- curd
1/2 tsp- mustard seeds
1/4 tsp- chana dal
1/4 tsp- urad dal
black salt
salt
sugar- 1 big pinch
green chilly
coriander leaves
roasted jeera powder (cumin seeds)
flax meal (alsi powder)
1/4 tsp- oil

Procedure
dosa, kaddu chutney, bengal gram chutney and kaddu raita


  1. Boil pumpkin with little salt and turmeric for 20-30 minutes or until soft.
  2. Let it cool.
  3. Meanwhile, let's prepare the tempering.
  4. Put oil in a pain. Drop in mustard seeds. Let them splutter.
  5. Add chana dal and urad dal. Let them crackle.
  6. Turn off the flame. Add green chilly to the tempering. Keep aside.
  7. Take the pumpkin pieces and add them to the grinder along with the tempering ingredients.
  8. Add sugar and black salt.
  9. Give it a good churn once again.
  10. Pour this pumpkin mixture into the curd.
  11. Check for salt. Sprinkle roasted cumin powder and flax meal.
  12. Garnish with coriander leaves. Enjoy this kaddu ka raita with rice or roti.
  13. I had it with dosa, kaddu chutney, and bengal gram dal chutney with a twist.
  14. I kept 1/4 cup of this pumpkin curd mixture aside to make kaddu buttermilk.

Eggless Cake Baking Without Baking Powder, Soda: Whole Grain Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? You might be wondering whether there is something like eggless baking without baking powder or soda. Well, this was exactly what I had been thinking until I tried this eggless cake without baking powder today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me. If baking without baking powder interests you, then you will be a permanent visitor here, for we think, live, and eat healthy and primarily focus on baking without baking powder or soda.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.


Here are the recipes to make almond milk at home.
