I never met a "Cupcake" I didn't like! (કપ કેક - ફક્ત ૫ મિનટમાં )

"When you share a cupcake you share love"

And that's just what I am about to do. :) Well, not literally but you'll see...

It's no flamboyant recipe really but a very very simple recipe I have tried and tested many times at home for the kids afternoon time snacks with milk.

(કપ કેક - ફક્ત ૫ મિનટમાં)

Cupcakes - My Way!
Sugared biscuits (preferably Parle G) - Single pack (Entire)
Caster Sugar - 2-3 big spoonsfuls  (and more if you love it sweet)
Baking Powder -  half teaspoon
Cocoa Powder - 1 table spoon
Milk - half cup or a little more

Grind the biscuits to a fine powder. Add caster sugar and cocoa powder to it. Start swirling it well while you add milk to it so that lumps are not formed.
Mix it well till a fine paste is formed.
Add baking pwder to it.
Pour it into your baking mould. Remember to grease your mould with unsalted butter or ghee.
I always microwave it at 900 for about 3 minutes.

And then, Keep calm and eat a Cupcake! :)

Spicy Banana ! (કેળાનું શાક )

(કેળાનું શાક) 
Well, certainly you might be thinking I am going out of my mind for I just mixed two oddly contrastiing words 'spicy'  and 'banana'  together.

But trust me once you have made this super easy recipe you will not want to stop licking your fingers for Spicy Bananas is a great combination of sweet banana with some spices!

All you need is :


Banana - half a dozen
Garlic Bulb - One whole
Green Chillie Pepper - 2
Turmeric Powder - 1 tea spoon
Salt - to taste
Red Chilli Powder - half tea spoon
Dhaniya-Jeera (Corainder/Caraway) Powder - 1 tablespoon

(Chopped Green Chilli Pepper and Crushed Garlic)

Cut Bananas into cubes. Scrape the banana peels from their insides.
Chope Green Chilli Pepper in big pieces. Chop half of the garlic cloves from the bulb and crush the remaining half.
In a non-stick deep frying pan heat some oil and add some jeera. After a minute or two add the chopped chillies and garlic. (CAUTION: Chilli seeds splutter quite instantly and you may burn so take care while you are performing this step)
Add the cubed bananas.

Now add salt, turmeric powder and Dhaniya Jeera powder. Mix well.

This is what it looks like once mixed well.
Spice Banana is now ready to be served with Chapatis!

Interesting Tip: Most kids and adults don't eat bananas. This is a good way to feed them bananas. It works at my place, so it can certainly work at yours!
Tell me whether or not it did! :)

FenuGREEK Grams / Masala Methi Chana (મસાલા મેથી ચણા)

(મસાલા મેથી ચણા)

People all over the globe are smacking their lips and tucking sumptously into our legendary curries! Well, I have for a long time now, secretly nurtured a craving for them too.

So here's one simple recipe with some very simple curry in it that not only tastes like million bucks but is also soaked wet in nutrients (literally!)


Black Gram (Soaked over night and pressure cooked) - about a large cup
Onion - 2 small
Tomato - 1 big
Ginger Garlic Chilli Paste -  2 Tablespoons
Salt - to taste
Turmeric Powder - half Teasooon
Red Chilli powder - 1 Tablespoon
DhaniaJeera Powder - 2 Tablespoons
Garam Masala - 1 Teaspoon


Pressure cook the black grams that have been soaked overnight or for atleast 6-7 hours.

Whilst pressurecooking them remember to add a pinch of baking soda to it as well as some salt.
Meanwhile shallow fry some fenugreek leaves that have been chopped finely and washed thoroughly.

 Do so on a medium flame and remeber to keep tossing it frequently lest it burns. Addsalt to it.
Next add chopped onions and ginger garlic paste to it. Allow the flavors of all these ingredient mix while you keep tossing them.  When the onions turn pink add tomatoes to it. You may either add tomato puree to it or add chopped onions.

Cook this curry on a slow flame. Add some water to it... and after say it simmers for about 4-5 minutes add the remining spices to it. Again let the gravy cook for a couple fo minutes,
Add the grams to it.  Let it cook till the grams seem to be absorbing the gravy and it's flavours. You will know this is happening once the gravy begins to thicken.

Masala Methi Chana is ready!
