Hola from my part of the world!!!!!

It’s been a week since I shared a new recipe.Hmm.. been busy at work.I have many recipes yet to be shared with all wonderful people who encourage me. Today’s theme is PANCAKES and I will sharing an easy and yummy recipe which will be loved by everyone!!!

pancake (or hotcakegriddlecake, or flapjack) is a flat cake, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that may contain eggs, milk and butter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan, often frying with oil or butter.Most of the recipes have eggs. I was inspired by Korean Potato Pancakes also known as Gamja-jeon. I have done some variation to suit our tastebuds. My boys just went gaga over these yummy pancakes. It is filling and perfect for breakfast too. I don’t have a sweet tooth so chose to make a savoury Pancake for this week’s theme.

IMG_3373IMG_3398

 

Hello !!!

I was craving for some dessert this weekend. I had a few ingredients in my pantry and viola i came up with a yummy and healthy Smoothie bowl with the goodness of Mango , greek yogurt, honey and organic dried Mulberries.Yogurt is a staple at my place. An important part of our daily diet.

Yogurt is extremely versatile. You can dip it, spread it, freeze it, add fruit to it or eat it plain. Yogurt is often included on healthy food lists and for a good reason. Yogurt is highly nutritious and is an excellent source of protein, calcium and potassium. It provides numerous vitamins and minerals and is relatively low in calories. The difference between yogurt and Greek yogurt is that Greek yogurt is more creamier as it is strained thrice compared to the normal yogurt.

Here are some other ideas:

1.Make a breakfast parfait by layering yogurt, dry cereal or granola, and topping with your favorite fruit

2.Top waffles or pancakes with yogurt and sliced strawberries

3.Enjoy a mid-day snack by blending yogurt, fruit and juice to make a delicious smoothie

4.Dip raw vegetables in plain yogurt

5.Use yogurt for salad dressing and dips

6.Serve plain yogurt on quesadillas, tacos, soups and chili—as an alternative to sour cream

Today I am sharing a healthy recipe for Mango yogurt smoothie bowl which can be whipped up in just 5 mins and can satisfy your sweet cravings and hunger pangs.By adding some cornflakes or Museli you can serve it as breakfast too.
