Oats Wheat Kohlrabi (knolkhol) Muthia (Steamed Savory Bites)

Back with another kohlrabi recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ I love using this vegetable a lot because it just goes well with a lot of flavors and cooks quickly. Ok let’s not forget it’s healthy too ๐Ÿ˜‰ In my previous blog post I mentioned that planning something for the evening snack can be difficult. Something to have with tea and relax! This Muthia fits right into that slot for snacks that are super yummy, easy to prepare, tasty, and healthy!

Sprouted Mung Beans Salad(Hesarakalu Usli/Sundal)

Mid-afternoon or evening snack is something that I end up not planning for at all! Somehow planning for breakfast, lunch or dinner takes up so much time or effort that there is hardly any time left to think of something for the evening. Unfortunately, what I realize is that I end up munching on whatever is available! So much for careful eating ๐Ÿ™ So I have been deliberately putting some thought into what I can have in the evenings when I get home – something quick and fast that does not require a ton of work! If you are looking for someย ideas – try having some fresh fruit or a quick south Indian kosambari (check out Sprouted Fenugreek seeds and raw mango kosambariย  and Southekayi hasi sasive(cucumber in coconut-mustard sauce)) or a masala papad or try this awesome sprouts salad/usli/sundal ๐Ÿ™‚

Yogurt Parfait!

Yogurt parfait – sounds fancy!

Yogurt parfait is a kind of ย frozen dessert with layers of yogurt, fruit and nuts/granola. What is there to not like about this? ย ๐Ÿ™‚
The creamy yogurt, the juicy fresh fruit topped with some crunchy nuts/oats/granola.

Microwave Khaman-Oats Spinach Dhokla

Khaman Dhokla is an Indian steamed savory cake made using chickpea flour/gram flour/besan. It is one quick, healthy treat that is loved by all! It is one of those classic dishes like Indian samosas. There a ton of variants and recipes already up on the internet for a lot of khaman dhokla recipes and other variants! But this is my take on it. I figured it had to feature on my blog since I make it practically every time I am hungry and want something super quick. There are a couple of pros and cons of using microwave to prepare dhokla. For the plus points – it is really easy, quick and is a great way to stay away from junk food when you are super hungry! On the other hand, like most quick shortcuts to Indian food, using a microwave just does not give the same texture as steaming the dhokla. That being said I still love this recipe ๐Ÿ˜€
