Baby corn is one such thing that can gel well with any cuisine, be it Indian, Chinese or anything from West. Baby corn has host of benefits, like it is low in calories, and has less carb when compared with normal corn. Baby corn has large fibre contents, which is good for lowering risk of heart diseases and type 2 diabetes. A 1/2-cup serving offers 4 percent of the daily value for vitamin A and iron, and 2 percent of the daily value for vitamin C. Sharing this Baby Corn Masala, a creamy gravy based recipe, which I would say is derived from my experiment with North Indian Cuisine.
Festivals can never be complete without sweets and “Besan Ladoo” (बेसन लड्डू) has been one such sweet which has its own niche place in sweets. The roasted aroma of gram flour with ghee, tossed in coriander powder leaves a long lasting flavour in mouth. I simply love this ladoo and is mostly available in my kitchen cupboard round the year. As much as people prefer cookies in snacks, I prefer this besan ladoo, and if its a festival like Diwali and Holi, rest assured that if you visiting me, you will be greeted by these absolutely mouth watering ladoos.
Recently I tried Makhana Kheer, then I thought why not try out something different with Makhana / Lotus Seeds? My quest led me to try out these cutlets made from Makhana, something which I would call easy to make. A perfect starter for any day, and best you can have it during Navratri and whilst fasting. Below is my detailed step by step pictorial recipe of “Makhana Cutlet (मखाना कटलेट) or Lotus / Foxnut seeds cutlet”.
I often hear my fellow friends saying they don’t get time to cook or cooking takes time, and this means dessert is one thing which normally goes out of window. I am sharing this step by step pudding recipe of Lotus seeds, also known as Foxnut seeds which can be made in jiffy. It is more commonly known as “Makhane Ke Kheer” (मखाने की खीर). This is phalahari kheer recipe that suitable for Navratri fasting or vrat or any upwaas, like Mahashivratri. Makhana is healthier than any other cornflake cereals or popcorn, hence I normally roast it and keep it in jar and simply munch it when hungry.
