Spicy Black-Eyed Beans Salad

We South Indians make a spicy curry or “sundal” with legumes. Black eyed beans curry used to be something that I’ve always loved! I usually make it with simple curry powder or make the masala version that I learnt from my friends in Pune. I buy dried beans, soak them in water for a couple…

Peek-a-boo Popsicles

My daughter loves Lotus Biscoff spread. When she just started walking, she opened the kitchen cupboard, opened a jar of lotus spread and started eating it. I don’t give her too much of store bought spreads because they are loaded with sugar, empty calories and preservatives. It’s been a year since she had lotus biscoff…

Green Bell Pepper Curry

My daughter initially hated green bell pepper. I made peace with the fact that okay it’s a vegetable she doesn’t like and she will eat it one fine day. Never thought that “one fine day” would come so soon. Last month I made this curry for some friends who came home for lunch. She loved…

Spinach Roti/Flatbread

I love flatbreads. Thankfully my daughter equally loves them. I usually make spicy rotis and have with raitha or just make plain rotis and a spicy curry to go with it. Today, my Mum and I made spinach rotis for all of us and had it with raitha because it’s very hot outside. Ingredients: 1…

Spinach and Peas Farfalle

A super quick pasta recipe this is with spinach and peas. After boiling some farfalle pasta, I realised that I don’t have any fancy cheese at home. All I had was mild cheddar cheese slice singles. I didn’t want to change the menu so went ahead with that cheese slice. Ingredients: 1 cup of pasta,…

Mini Pancakes

I’m slightly shy to say that we have pancakes as evening snack. I’m usually pretty bad at making pancakes because I make it just for my daughter and the internet recipes that I see usually serve 4. I’m obviously bad at Math and I find it difficult how to reduce the quantity of eggs! Today…

Avocado and Banana Nice Cream

If you’re looking for frozen home made treats for your child, nice creams are the best options! They are home made, contain just fruits and absolutely no preservatives or dairy (optional). My two year old gets attracted to good looking meals so I add nuts and drizzle some maple syrup. Nuts are completely optional, especially…
