Banana and walnut eggless cake

Banana and walnut eggless cake

Bananas are all time favorites , I love this moist freshly baked cake so much that I can bake it every weekend . As you all know Bananas are a storehouse of essential nutrients like potassium, magnesium, dietary fibre and B vitamins.
It's really healthy and a tasty option to add in daily diet. And if somebody is allergic to egg then this recipe is a boon for them .


2 cups ...........all-purpose flour
1 tsp ................baking powder
1/2 .................tsp baking soda
1 tsp .................salt
1/2 cup ...........butter - softened / fresh cream / malai
1 cup .................sugar
3/4 cup .........whole milk
1 tsp ..................vanilla essence
2 bananas - mashed
1/2 cup .............walnuts - chopped and raisins


Cream the butter with the sugar till it becomes nice and pale.
Mix flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder in another dry bowl.
Add this to the butter mixture one spoon at a time , alternating with a little milk at a time and beat until nicely blended.
Add the flour and milk alternately as you keep whipping the batter so it gets nice and fluffy. be careful about lumps .
Fresh cream or milk fat/malai makes this cake very soft and spongy so I generally prefer that .

You can even use a food-processor for this. Keep scraping the sides as you blend or beat the mixture. Add a little more milk(half cup more) if the batter looks too thick.

Add the mashed bananas and vanilla essence. Finally add in the chopped walnuts and raisins. folding in just to mix it well.

Grease a cake-baking pan, or use muffin molds for individual cakes. I used a 8" cake tin .Fill tin only 1/2 as this needs more room to rise. Even if you use a muffin moulds do not fill more then 2/3rd .

Bake your cake at 180oC till done , check your cake by a barbecue stick if it came out clean then your cake is ready to eat .
Topped it with honey and banana slices . You can topped with frosting also .

Eat the way you like it warm or cold . I like warm ,it melts in the mouth .

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth 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. After your pour the batter down a hot sizzling pan, even the wait to figure whether the dosa will stick or not is a delicious feeling....Dosa with healthy twist will make this delicious treat more interesting. My dietitian sugges…

Gur chana / jaggery coated roasted chickpeas

 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 



Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. 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…
