Method

Grease a 12 hole muffin pan.
Heat oil in a skillet add onion and stir well add capsicum and stir, add all vegetables and spices stir for two min.
Mix vegetables and ¾ cup of cheese with the sifted flour and baking powder.
Whisk together the eggs/ banana , oil and milk and add to the flour mixture.
Stir until just combined.
Spoon the mixture evenly into the muffin holes and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

My special tip :

Love to serve these muffins warm. They are very tasty and healthy as well .They are better eaten on the day they were cooked. Freeze any spare muffins to have on hand as a healthy snack.

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth .....it is really important to be fit and healthy. I realised that, some change in lifestyle can help in maintaining a balanced diet. To apply it in daily routine...I have started a Diet food series.
There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa! I love dosas and in fact I'm planning to make one today in breakfast. And it's not just because they taste divine but also because they're really fun to make: Right from grinding down the urad dal and rice, letting the white stuff ferment to running your ladle through the batter checking for lumps, it's almost therapeutic.

GURWALE SHALGAM ( SWEET AND TANGY TURNIPS) punjabi style

Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.
This recipe is from my mother in law's cook book , my mom In law was an excellent cook and being a panjabi, her excellency was panjabi cuisine. She was excellent at cooking all panjabi dishes like sarson ka saag, makkai ki roti, gur ke chawal  or any vegetable like turnip or kormas, . I have learnt almost all panjabi dishes from her and I really wanted to thank her for that , today whatever I make related to punjab reminds me of her . Lov…
