Egg Bhurji / Scrambled Egg Curry

Scrambled egg curry is one of the best side dish for crispy dosa, chapati or poori and even rice. This curry is easy to prepare, does not need much time & you can complete all the task in the same pan. Whenever there is no time to prepare any side-dish to accompany your rotis, this will be a less time taken recipe.

Ragi Peanut Laddu

As always my focus is on my fussy kid, who do not like ragi in any form. The benefits of Ragi(Finger Millets) are never ending by adding extra nuts and several cereals which are dried and powdered. It makes as a perfect recipe to all the nutritional requirements. Kids should be made to take ragi drinks/snacks which is available from an early age before they are introduced to bakery food.. Ragi is best food for weight control, diabetes and a cooling the body.It is rich in calcium & rich source of fiber and helps lower cholesterol level. Instead of popping a pill, you can as well substitute that with ragi kanji.

Ragi cherry is one of the best semi-solid foods that you give your kid before you get him/her used to solid food. As I did to my kid. It's the best baby food in India to make kids strong. Speak to your granny and am sure she will come up with more suggestions!

Eggplant-GreenPeas Curry

We don't usually think about green peas as an exotic food in terms of nutrient composition—but we should. Because of their sweet taste and starchy texture, we know that green peas must contain some sugar and starch (and they do). But they also contain a unique assortment of health-protective phytonutrients. Green peas stand out as an environmentally friendly food. Green peas are a very good source of vitamin K, dietary fiber, vitamin B1, copper, vitamin C, phosphorus, and folate.

Eggless Custard Powder Cake

  I love cakes with a touch of another ingredient than just plain flour. So adding the custard powder is a low fat bake as it would be comfortable for regular baking... :)

Custard powder is for people who wanted an alternative to eggs. It looks a lot like cornflour and the reason being that the base used is cornstarch along with salt and vanilla flavorings.Yellow coloring gives the custard just enough color to look as though there are plenty of eggs in it... :)

To make a recipe with custard powder, the basic steps followed is as follows:
Combine sugar, milk and custard powder in a broad pan to make a paste. Add hot milk and stir till sugar dissolves and becomes a thick creamy sauce. Use as required. But now I didn't followed.
