Khasta Namkeen Paare | खस्ता नमकपारे | Step Wise | Diwali Treats




Hi all!!

Today I’m sharing one of my most favourite snacks which goes well with a cup of tea or coffee. No Diwali celebration is complete for me unless I make these namakpaare or salted deep fried biscuits. Over the years I have mastered the art of making these and now know very well the nuances in it’s making.

Sweetened Boondi | गोड़ बूंदी/ मीठी बूंदी | Diwali Snacks | Diwali Treats | Step Wise

Foodelicious- Sweetened Boondi

Hi all!!
I am posting after a long time and with the Diwali approaching in a few days I’m all set to post recipes for the same. To start off I’m posting the colourful sweetened boondi. The coloured boondi not only looks attractive but tastes good too. My younger one who is quite finicky about eating sweets, loved it to the core.
These are easy to serve  and are welcomed by children, so you can call them a ‘kid’s delight’ too. Moreover, these can be used as garnishes on sweets. Also, can be served with rabadi and make a wholesome dessert.

Foodelicious-Gojju Podi

Hi all!!

Sharing another important spice mix used in Karnataka cuisine. This podi/spice mix/masala is used to make a traditional preparation called Gojju which is spicy-sweet-sour curry made using a select few vegetables and fruits. The most commonly used veggies and fruits are Okra, bittergourd, pineapple, mango, onion, tomato etc.

The freshly ground masala adds a better flavour to the gojju which tastes best with steamed rice.

Mushroom & Onions Focaccia


Foodelicious-Onion & Mushroom Focaccia


The Focaccia frequents my kitchen quite regularly as these are enriched breads which are easy to make. One can try making them with various toppings and variations. This one is the third focaccia recipe that I’m posting here. I’ve previously posted Rosemary-Onion Focaccia and Focaccia Caprese.

I was baking another batch of Focaccia Caprese when I decided to make this combination too. I wasn’t too sure how mushroom would taste on it but decided to give it a go and I was contented with the outcome. Focaccia is a very forgiving bread and one normally can’t mess it up. The combination worked and the addition of sea salt gave a nice coarse crunch and saltiness to the topping. I would recommend you not to skip the coarse sea salt. S’s verdict was that the focaccia tastes awesome because of the sea salt.

Kid’s Lunch Box Ideas| Thin Red Beaten Rice/Poha With Veggies | Step Wise | Vegan


Foodelicious- Red Beaten Rice With Veggies


I had taken an opinion poll on Facebook fan page, on what all of you would like to read next on the blog and I got an overwhelming response and most of them asked for a healthy kid’s lunch box recipe, it goes to show that the prime concern for all mothers is how to feed healthy food to their children.

As a mother of a teenager, I thrive to feed veggies to my son in every possible way. I find his lunch box most crucial as it’s the meal he has at school in the afternoon. I have to keep coming up with ideas which sound interesting to him and he can proudly share with his friends. As I’ve mentioned earlier that his friends look out for his lunch box and a boring lunch box is not what he would like to show to his friends. I can’t give him junk food or a deep fried items regularly too, which he would most happily eat to increase my discomfort.
