Jeera/Cumin for Weight Loss/Digestion
You are already aware that cumin seeds for digestion are widely popular, right? But do you know jeera, which is a quintessential spice in Indian recipes, also helps improve immunity and respiratory disorders. Used extensively as a condiment in the Indian subcontinent, cumin is touted to be a rich source of energy. Surprisingly, the cute little spice is loaded with vitamin A,  B6, C, E , amino acids, and minerals, including calcium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, potassium, copper, and magnesium. It has a substantial amount of carbohydrates and fats & fatty acids.

One teaspoon of cumin is enough to meet your daily requirements.

Cumin adds taste and flavor to simple recipes. But the best thing is that cumin is a weight loss aid. It is rich in an organic compound, Cuminaldehyde, which activates your salivary glands and thus work as a digestion aid.

Second, cumin contains thymol, which stimulates the glands secreting acids, enzymes, bile juice that aid in complete digestion. Cumin is also carminative, which means that it relieves you from gas troubles, and thereby, improves digestion and appetite. Due to its essential oils, magnesium, and sodium content, cumin promotes digestion. Cumin works best when taken with hot water, providing relief from stomach aches.

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…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
