Soul Food.............

From last 8 days I was eating so called junk food (I love to :)..... mostly outside. Today we are celebrating our festival Dipawali and in lunch I prepared simple Indian food.

Potato curry, Roti (Indian bread), salad and Sweet Gulab Jamun (prepared from ready made pack).

Soul Food.............

Though I consider my taste buds to be quite good, but after munching on junk food here and there, I loved to prepare such simple food with very less spices. I would like to call this food as soul food........... :)

Cucumber, Carrot , curd (raita) salad

Yum yum....... Gulab jamun...

Wheat and Barley Bran flour Biscuits

I love baking but I hate to use very fine white flour. So, this time I have made biscuits from wheat flour and Barley Bran. These are perfect tea-time or evening snacks. These are also all time favorite of my daughter. As I used whole wheat flour and barley bran flour with home made butter, I don't suffer from any guilt when she eats 4-5 pieces at a time.


1 cups sifted whole wheat flour,1/2 cup barley bran flour,
1 tsp. baking powder,
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. Sugar
1 tsp. butter milk

Sift Flour once, measure, add baking powder and salt, and sift again now add sugar . Cut the butter and use your hand to mix it in the flour. Add butter milk if required so that you can make a soft dough.
Now wrap the dough in plastic film and keep in the fridge for 30 min.
Roll and cut with biscuit cutter. Bake on ungreased sheet in a 300-350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. My Big Help...........
