 Easy Eggless Cake Recipes | Egg-free cake Recipes
Don't we call love easy snack cakes? I am a huge fan of light eggless cake recipes, if there is a way to skip eggs and butter to make cakes then I am all game to the idea. I have tried many eggless cake recipes which I thought would be great to share in one single post. Usually Eggless cakes are said to be dense, oily or too moist. But not really, although in the baking world people even war about eggless cakes and cakes with eggs. For special occasions I prefer to bake a sponge with eggs and for regular cake cravings I stick to cakes without eggs. If you ask me which I enjoy better? I love them both, its hard to not fall in love with a perfectly baked cake isn't it?. All these cakes are tried many times in my kitchen and loved and devoured by my loved ones. If you are a baker do you need an excuse to bake? certainly not ;-). Go ahead and enjoy baking these cakes for your loved ones.

Kerala Chicken Stew for Appam
Kerala Chicken Stew for Appam
Last week when I posted the Vegetable stew recipe on my blog, I got a request for Chicken stew recipe and since my husband's birthday was nearing I wanted to make Chicken stew and appam for his breakfast. I love mallu food and I have already posted many delicious mallu recipes on my blog like the aviyal, mango fish curry, ragi puttu with kadala curry, appam and so on. There are many more kerala recipe that are our family favourite but yet to be blogged. When Amma was a newly wed she had a lovely mallu chechi who thought her many kerala recipes that Amma graciously passed on to me. Although we love our Tamil food can never say no to Kerala recipes for their flavour and coconut indulgence. I am sure each household has their own recipe for a chicken stew this one is my own version. It totally depends on how rich or mild you want this curry to be. My version is mild and not rich but is perfect with appams/ idiyappams. My husband was one happy man to enjoy this breakfast combo on his birthday :-) who ever said a way to a man's heart is through his stomach was so right ;-).

Soft spicy steamed momos, can there the someone who cannot like them? I crave momos just like cakes, cookies and ice cream. I pull my husband to the momo shops and simply devour them with every bite. Few months back a bunch of us met up for lunch and we ordered for veg momos and I was totally disappointed with the restaurant that served dry chewy momos that only had the taste of raw cabbage. I was so disheartened and complained to the restaurant manager and walked away not forgetting what happened. So the other day I was reminded of momos and wanted to make them from scratch and it turned out too good. Try this recipe and you will tell me the same. Schezwan sauce is used to spice up these momos and I did make the filling with loads of finely chopped vegetables. And as always have tips for making the easiest filling without spending much time on chopping vegetables.

Roasted Masala Corn Recipe
Roasted Masala Corn Recipe
Chennai Beaches are known for their local street vendors crying out loud their recipes of the day, ranging from bajjis, vadas, sundal, cone ice (icecream) and chole (masala roasted corn on the cob). Although the rest of the dishes always took my interest to back then, Amma is a huge fan of these roasted chole and only recently have I found a liking to them. And when ever I go grocery shopping I pick up sweet corn cobs and store them in the refrigerator. For instant evening munchies I either pressure cook them or make these masala corn, I love them both ways and definitely healthy way to enjoy your evening cuppa. Not only do beach vendors sell them sometimes street vendors also make these delicious chaar grilled corns on iron skillets with coal and fire. They taste even amazing with the chaar grilled taste. I have used sweet corn instead of the chole, I prefer the taste of sweet corn and for how soft they are to munch, you can use the same method to make roasted chole. Now lets move on to the recipe.

Vegetable stew with appam a perfect Mallu combination that no one must miss. I still remember one of my friend's mum who used to market this combo to invite me home for breakfast. And her tricks always worked :-). Years have passed and here I am making appam and stew at home and I must say this recipe works perfect every time I plan to make appams for breakfast/ dinner. Stew is a light thin curry made with vegetables/ chicken using coconut milk. I always prefer using fresh coconut milk but making it with canned coconut milk won't hurt. Make this delicious combo for your family and be ready to be flooded with praises.

Ragi/ Fingermillet Flour Puttu Recipe
Last month when I was home I asked Amma to make Ragi/ fingermillet Puttu with kadala curry not like I am a big fan of puttu but because i was seriously craving for puttu. Something not the usual Tamil breakfasts like idly, dosa, poori, pongal types. And my craving for puttu was totally satisfied with this delicious combo. Although the white puttu beats the brown/ ragi one, I prefereed to have the ragi puttu for its health benefits. A perfect platter of puttu is filled with nutrition, protein, oil-free steam cooked for a healthy breakfast. Kerala puttus are incomplete without the dose of coconut but you can always skip it if your curry has coconut. Now lets move on to the recipe of kadala curry and ragi puttu.
