Cold Coffee–Beat the October Heat

One of the most asked question in pregnancy is – So what food cravings do you have? Frankly I had none. But when your doctor advises you to avoid something, you miss it. That was my case, I missed street food especially pani puri , SPDP, ragda pattice.. I also missed Chinese takeout but my daily dose of caffeine was the most missed one!

Ukadiche Modak | A sweet dumpling

If you asked me 5 years before, if I will ever try to prepare Ukadiche Modak, my answer would have been – Oh God Never ! Reason – too complicated – too time consuming – not worth! But today, I feel, after couple failures plus trails, the modak will come out fine, trust me.

This Ganpati, I prepared 11 Ukadiche modak as prasad for the first day. If a five month old mother can prepare it, anyone can give it a try Winking smile. The recipe was based on the Ruchira-  a Marathi cookbook.

  • First – I loved the name which I know, I can not pronounce correctly : Tortilla de Espinacas Open-mouthed smile
  • Second – healthy yet seems delicious.
  • Third – omelette.

I loved the chunky potatoes, the egg-ish spinach and garlicky essence.

I used to prepare potato omelette, even posted one similar Parsi dish – Potato-par-Eeda. But adding spinach to it changes the taste altogether.

We loved it, if you try I’m sure you would love too.

Eggless Tutty Fruity Cake

It all started last June, when my Gynac asked me to take extra care in first trimester, or was it some lazy hormone released during pregnancy, I had become a reluctant soul. But now when my baby turns 5.5 months, I feel Life is nearly same as it was before, with more fun, extra entertainment, loads of laughter and bountiful of smiles.

So when I look at my blog which had been in quite inactive mode for last year, I feel obliged as this had been one of my long lasting hobby plus a somewhat creative side of me. It’s not just obligation, but I always loved this space where I would vent out my culinary experiments and my amateurish photography skills.

Just to make everything sweet and short – I really wanted to get back on this space. so here I am with one of my baking experimentThumbs up
