Who does not like pizza, but having pizza outside is generally not healthy. How about we make whole wheat pizza with our choice of toppings. So this time we are back with a fun to eat pizza, peppy paneer pizza. I generally use my whole wheat pizza dough and pizza sauce recipes.
Peppy paneer pizza has some mild bell peppers or capsicum. We have also thrown in some soft paneer making it a very desi pizza. Generally I’m not a big fan of fusion food, I do make some exceptions though. ... “Peppy Paneer Pizza | Paneer Capsicum Pizza | Pizza Recipes”

A comforting porridge to kick-start your day in any weather, sounds good and I am all for it. Porridges usually come in the form of something with a sweet tinge more often than not. Oats porridge with dry nuts for instance. But I try to make savoury porridges like ukad from Maharashtra or ragi ganji from Karnataka. Here I have made Italian special savoury breakfast polenta.
Polenta is essentially cornmeal made into a porridge with Italian origins. Polenta is made in many ways and here I tried a savoury breakfast polenta. It is gluten-free and is light on the stomach making it a perfect dish for breakfast. ... “Breakfast Polenta | Polenta Porridge | Porridge Recipes”

We all love instant recipes be it idlis or dosas. But instant recipes need to have the right balance to turn out to be tasty. Their fermented counterparts enjoy the time to rest and turn out to be light and airy. But adding flavourful things into a recipe like corn or spinach like this instant corn idli makes them taste so good!
Corn idli is made from corn rava (maize rava/cornmeal). This is easily available in grocery stores. Just like making rava idli, this instant corn idli is a specialty. It has yogurt added for moisture and light instant fermentation. The pop-in-the-mouth corn niblets (frozen/fresh) along with sweet raisins make them very unique in taste. ... “Instant Corn Idli | Idli Recipes”

Generally most of us eat regular white bread or nowadays health conscious people eat whole wheat bread. But did you know that different countries especially like India, Mexico, Italy, France have their own specialty breads. In India, of course we have rotis, phulkas, chapathis, kulchas, naans, yes, the list is endless. Similarly in Mexico they have different types of bread like tortillas, corn bread etc. They are a corn loving nation and their corn tortillas are so good!
Corn bread is a very different bread and unique in taste. It is so moist and soft almost like a cake that it can be served just on its own without anything on the side. Here I have served it with guacamole, a Mexican condiment like our chutney. Corn bread has these pop-in the mouth corn niblets with tiny puddles of corn sweetness filled in them. Yum, to say the least! ... “Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Bread | Mexican style cornbread”
Packed with a punch of jalapenos, with cheese, corn and spinach – Mexican style muffins

I have a soft spot for anything savoury 🙂 Whenever I get an opportunity, I try to make savoury things to nibble on. This is Dish 4 of the World Cuisine Series and it is from Mexico. One of my favourite cuisines to prepare and of course to eat (gobble ’em all up). These are muffins with Mexican flavours, corn, jalapenos, cheese, what is not to like about them. Whenever I bake anything I try to make them all with whole wheat. Along with whole wheat flour, I have also used yellow cornmeal which is maize flour, easily available in stores/supermarkets. It gives a nice texture to the muffins, you also get to incorporate another grain and cornmeal is widely used in Mexican cuisine! The most important thing about muffins is not to overmix the batter/mixture which will make them chewy and hard. Mix and make muffins, enjoy them as a snack or for a quick nibble with a glass of milk in the morning. Also try other Mexican recipes! ... “Spinach Corn Cheddar Cheese Muffins | Mexican Savoury Muffins”
