Healthy Recipe With Oatmeal Procedure
oatmeal recipe

  1. To begin with we need to make clarified butter from cream. Typically we collect cream from skimmed milk after boiling in a container for a week and then extract ghee or clarified butter from it.
  2. Take a big vessel. Grease it with oil and then pour the cream into it. Cook on a low flame while stirring intermittently. It will take time & effort and you have got to be patient. Nevertheless, it's well worth the efforts. When you get the thin layer of oil separating from the solids, sieve it and keep aside.
  3. Then add water to the solids and heat again on a slow flame. Again, you will separate oil from solids. Do this 2-3 times or if you are okay with little amount of clarified butter in the recipe, you may stop here and use these solids for pedas.
  4. Ideally I try to add more and more water to the ghee leftover to remove most of its ghee content. I add water to the leftover solids and churn out little ghee and then again add more water when the milk solids are dry. I follow this process 3-4 times.LOL
  5. When you are left with this ghee leftover, mix the same with oats and run in a food processor. I used my grinder.
  6. Add sugar or gur and green cardamom and run the grinder again.
  7. Take out in a bowl and make cute little balls. If you add less amount of oat powder or do not add oats to this, you will get perfect pedas, just like those that you savor in Mathura :) I have made pedas with paneer. Check here.
  8. Enjoy healthy oats pedas.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?






















Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes.
