Chocolate Cake [Egg less]

Today I am going to share a cake which has a special place in every ones heart – it is none other than the Chocolate cake. Somehow my husband is not a great fan of Chocolate cake, so I try to skip baking chocolate cakes. But my little daughter just loves it, so this was a special cake I made for her. I have not done any icing; you can choose icing of your choice. One more important thing friends, I am relocating back to Chennai, so I will not be able to post regularly for few weeks. But will try to keep posting and visit your spaces whenever possible. For now let’s enjoy eggless chocolate cake.

Ajwain Paratha/Omam Paratha/Carom Seeds Paratha

I have been making different types of easy and quick paratha a lot lately, the hidden reason behind it is to pack lunch for my girls. This ajwain paratha is one such paratha. It is a flavourful and delicious paratha that can be made in no time and is a perfect lunch box recipe. Ajwain/Omam is very a common and a handy herb/seed in Indian households which helps in getting rid of stomach pain, indigestion and flatulence. Not only as a good digestive aid it has other health benefits as well. Ajwain is very useful in relieving sinus problems, cold and congestion. A quick tip, before going into the recipe, crush a few seeds of ajwain tie it in a soft cloth and heat the bundle over a warm tawa. Apply this warm bundle over the chest to relieve congestion.  Having said a few things about ajwain, let’s move on to the recipe. Check out other different types of  chapathis/parathas here.

Pasta with Chickpeas/Pasta e Ceci – Indian Version [Vegetarian]

 “Pasta e Ceci” means “Pasta and Chickpeas” which is actually a thick soup. In Rome pasta e ceci was traditionally eaten during lent (40 days before Easter) on Fridays, when the Catholic Church discouraged eating meat. Pasta e Ceci is found throughout Italy, the one food I could find in most of the menus when we visited Italy. But the pasta e ceci had the anchovies fillets added to it, but I have made a vegetarian version of Pasta e Ceci and added a little bit of Indian spices for added kick. Do try this pasta with chickpeas friends, you will surely find it interesting and stunning.
