Healthy Oatmeal Coconut Cookies With Whole Wheat Flour: Parle Style

If I say I am going to treat you to homemade oatmeal cookies flavored with coconut, what will be your reaction?



This is one baking recipe with coconut that you are instantly going to fall in love with. Do not believe me? Read further!



No I do not claim to have got the perfect Parle style coconut biscuits, but I have certainly come closer to replicating the taste and crunch of these coconut cookies. I have been trying out various cookie recipes, for I am a biscuit lover. I love to enjoy my tea with cookies - though I eat only one or two biscuits.

My love for biscuits started during childhood. We would savor glucose Bakeman's biscuits with milk during those days. The story is simple - there was a Bakeman's factory near Patiala, and we would buy loads of biscuit packets whenever we would be crossing the factory while heading to and fro Patiala. Rajpura is my mom's home, and as kids, we would love to visit nana-nani (maternal grandparents) during vacations. It was then that w…

OPOS Rasgulla & Rasmalai: Odisha Pahala Rasgulla in 5 Minutes

The word rasmalai sounds so blissful - with all the ras intact.  Well, I am sharing with you a gur rasmalai and rasgulla recipe that uses toned/low-fat milk. This does make a healthy sweet that you can indulge in guilt free. Of course, I am not saying you should be doing this daily. Pahala rasgulla is a special sweet in Odisha. I love the brown tint of this Odiya sweet and its spongy texture.


Well, I am OPOSing a number of recipes every day. In fact, OPOS is what I do these days in my kitchen - rarely do I make anything the old way. Why not? OPOS is another name for life made easy - or you may say it is cooking made easier!  While we have been trying out OPOS recipes everyday, primarily meals, it's time to OPOS sweets now. Of course, it is Diwali time, which is the time to relish sweets. Since I do not indulge too much in sweets, given the amount of empty calories that go into the body, I try making everything at home, so that I can keep an eye on what goes inside us. What do you…

Tips to Bake Oatmeal Bread Without Yeast: Soda Bread Recipe With Whole Wheat

No yeast atta bread recipe is for health freaks like me. I am skeptical to use yeast in my bread recipes, so always try to come up with yeast free whole wheat bread recipes that give me the satisfaction of not including "yeast the beast" to satiate my bread cravings.









































Sounds interesting?

No yeast bread recipes are not as popular as those with yeast. But I always try yeast-free recipes.

I have been trying to experiment with different bread combinations. This time tried my hands at a mixture of rice flour, whole wheat, and oats. The bread comes out super soft, though there is always a difference between yeast and no yeast bread.

But for a healthy take, the yeast-free bread has many takers - at least I am always ready to bake one. We have not bought market bread for more than a year now. Yeast can be a major cause of allergies in many people with high histamine levels.

So we try to avoid market bread. Moreover, the bread making process in factories is filthy and the way they kne…
