Palak Paneer/Indian Cottage Cheese with Spinach

I still remember I have posted this recipe long back, back then also I used to like my palak paneer without tomatoes, even today it is the same, only thing that changed is the masalas/spices that I used then and now, and another thing is Paneer I used to fry, but now I like them without frying. Well I guess it is not only me, there are many who like their Palak Paneer green, I feel adding tomatoes change the color, also cooking the spinach leaves for long and covered cooking turn them to a different green color which I don't prefer. So here goes my new version now unlike the old way of palak paneer which is a family favorite since more than a year now😉

Methi matar malai

A bunch of methi (fresh fenugreek leaves) at Indian stores here, I was like I must try something special out of this. Many things started running in my mind but a curry using these leaves had an edge as I scanned through the list of items that had queued up. My kid loves chapathi/roti (Indian flat bread) and it is for sure not a daily preparation at our place as I tend to keep rice often for curries as it is kind of easy stuff to be prepared. Well, but in a week I manage once or twice to prepare rotis.

Now I try at times things that include more of protein and fats. My craving this winter is for an Indochinese snack, well to be honest, it could even be my brunch or lunch (actually anytime I can snack on this). I tried out a version of paneer chilli which did not involve flour in any form following a recipe from internet. Isn't that interesting?

Banana Apple Whole Wheat Flour Cake with Coconut Sugar

Holiday is at times exhausting but well kids are kids, they tend to feel bored often unless they are engaged in some summer camp or so. I did want to spend some quality time with my kid this summer, so took a few days off just to be with her chattering around. But then I never knew that it turns out hard, as at times we run out of the different types games we could play together, I kept planning one after other and finally yesterday it was cake baking, our agenda for the day, and we baked a delicious moist bundt cake and that too egg less 😊!


Now when it comes to cooking or baking, off late I try out something that is healthy. The coconut sugar that I
