Whole Wheat Carrot Dates Prunes Cake | Loaded with Dry Fruits | Baking With Whole Wheat

My Love for Baking: I have been baking for the last 11 years & still, it gives me joy and the opportunity to try out something new and fresh. Baking is about mixing the right ingredients in the right amount and bake at the right temperature for the right duration. And with experience, you understand how certain ingredients mix well with others and you can be creative with your baking.

I love Baking

I love creating recipes that challenge the traditional ways of baking. From experimenting with whole wheat flour, oats flour, there are tons of ways to update your favorite sweet treats and improve the value of their overall nutrition without losing out on any of the flavors.

Whole Wheat Carrot Dates Prunes Cake

Dates are one of my most favorite dried fruits. For those who don’t know, dates are the dried fruits that hang off of the date palm trees. Whole dates have become a very popular way to sweeten both raw and baked desserts because they’re naturally sticky, moist, full of fiber, and most importantly, they are a “whole food” — in other words, they have undergone no manipulation or processing.

No Sugar Treat

Prunes taste like plums with sweet traces which are brought during the drying process. Prunes are sticky and chewy. The prunes can make your favorite baked treats healthier by adding moisture while also decreasing the amount of sugar and fat in comparison to a standard brownie recipe. Plus, the unique flavor of prunes is truly indulgent and can satisfy any sweet tooth.

Healthy Tea Time Cake

Also known as gur, jaggery is a winter-specific food, which can be either enjoyed as a standalone sweet or can also be used to make several mouth-watering desserts. Jaggery is a healthier alternative to refined sugar as well. You can easily ditch white sugar and switch to this yummy sweetener and use it to make tea, laddoos, halwa, and various other sweet dishes.

No Oven Baked Cake

If you want to make your food preparation a little more nutritious, try adding dried fruit into your recipes. Not only are they good for your body but they also can boost the texture and moisture levels of bread and other baked goods. 

Loaded With Dry Fruits

A super moist cake with dates, prunes, carrots, and lots of dry fruits in every bite. It is a deliciously wholesome treat and thus goes well with an evening tea. No egg, no butter, no sugar is used in this cake. This eggless whole wheat carrot walnut cake ticks all the right kinds of boxes for me – it is very simple to make, it is bursting with flavor, it can be served warm with your coffee or tea, there is no messy frosting involved, it is healthy made with whole wheat flour and no sugar, it is moist, soft and spongy. Do try this cake

HOW TO BAKE THE CAKE IN KADAI (WOK)

In a heavy bottom, kadai add a cup of salt or sand. Place a steel stand in a wok. Cover and preheat the kadai on high heat for about 8 minutes. (Adding salt at the bottom ensures that the kadai doesn’t burn. Heavy bottom kadai acts as oven and ensures even cooking from all sides). I never used salt in my baking because I use a heavy bottom kadai (Prestige Brand) and I am baking for the past 2 years in the same kadai. It works perfectly fine. But, it depends on the brand, quality of the kadai.

After 8 minutes, lower the heat and put the baking tin in a kadai (wok). Cover a lid and bake bread for 60 minutes. After 60 minutes check the cake with a knife, if the mixture does not stick, it means the bread is done. If batter still sticks to the knife then again bread for another 10 minutes.

Raksha Bandhan Special | Tofu Kalakand | Indian Sweet Recipe | No Ghee No Oil Sweet Recipe

Traditionally celebrated by Hindus, Raksha Bandhan is a festival in which a sister ties a talisman or an amulet, also called rakhi, around her brother’s wrist. This symbolizes love and protection. Sometimes, when siblings have to live in separate locations due to various reasons like education, work, and marriage, it becomes difficult to experience the same joy.

Raksha Bandhan Special

Thanks to the advent of the internet, you can select your favorite fancy rakhi online and send that rakhi with sweets like gulab jamun, ladoo, rasgulla, and barfi overseas. This year I ordered rakhi from Ferns N Petals. Ordered an Ethnic Rakhi Set & Plants In Metal Pots and I loved it.

Handmade gifts often let the receiver feel that they are loved. They think that the person giving the gift has spent enough time thinking about what they want, something that shows their personality or interest. In addition, a handmade gift lets someone feel extra special because rather than giving a store-bought present, you chose to put your time creating something.

Handmade Rakhi

Without a doubt, the person who will receive it will feel nothing but good vibes. I made these personalized rakhis with alphabet beads and colorful threads. How I made it? The link is below.

Tofu Kalakand

Kalakand is a delicious, rich sweet dish that is a staple in most Indian homes, particularly in the North. The texture and taste of this homemade recipe are very similar to the one you get in the mithai shops and are very easy to make as well.

Indian Sweet Recipe

This is a very simple recipe and it is so close to the traditional Kalakand, the only difference is I replaced paneer with tofu. Indian desserts tend to be very sweet traditionally and I am sticking to the traditional flavor. You can reduce the sugar if you wish. This kalakand also has a specific traditional flavor and texture.

Ghee Sankranti Festival of Uttarakhand | GHEE TYAR | Festival of Uttarakhand | Homemade Ghee with Unsalted Butter | Recipe From My Maa ki Kitchen Se

Uttarakhand calls it the ‘Land of Gods’. Mysterious, beautiful, exotic, charming, and magnificent, that’s Uttrakhand in a nutshell. The enchanting land is divine with some jaw-dropping tourist places and when you visit this place you can better judge why the Gods chose Uttarakhand to make it their abode. With several beautiful places to visit in Uttarakhand, a trip to Uttarakhand should be on your bucket list of places to see in India.

Ghee Sankranti Festival of Uttarakhand

Uttarakhand is popularly known as The Abode of Gods (Devbhumi). There are several festivals celebrated in different parts of the states throughout the year. Most of the festivals are associated with agricultural activities, nature, and changes in seasons. In this series of festivals, one of the festivals is known as ‘Ghee Tyar’ or ‘Ghee Sankranti. This is one of the most popular and well-known festivals celebrated in the rainy season. It’s been celebrated all across the state for centuries.

GHEE TYAR

As per the Indian lunar calendar, Ghee Tyar or Ghee Sankranti is celebrated on the first day of the Hindu month Bhadrapada (August). In this festival people necessarily include delicious foods made of Ghee in their meal, maybe this is the reason its name as Ghee Tyar. In addition to this, people also include Urad (Black gram) stuffed chapatis and vegetables made of Arbi (Taro root) fresh leaves on their meal. On this wonderful day, farmers show their gratitude for a prosperous harvest and share their food made of Ghee with each other.

Festival of Uttarakhand

Ghee (also known as clarified butter) is delicious with a nutty aroma. It’s easy to make at home, perfect for those who are dairy-sensitive, and cheaper than what you can buy in the store. Ghee is similar to clarified butter, where all the milk solids are removed, but it’s cooked just a tad bit longer. Those extra couple of minutes allow the milk solids on the bottom of the pan to begin to brown, which gives ghee a slightly different, more nutty flavor profile to clarified butter.

Homemade Ghee with Unsalted Butter

Ghee is a traditional Indian food and has been enjoyed in the Middle East and Asia for thousands of years. It’s also frequently used in Ayurveda and other healing medicines. Once you make ghee at home, it’ll be hard to go back to store-bought. Because it’s just so easy to make.

Recipe From My Maa ki Kitchen Se

I have seen my Maa & NaniMaa making ghee every day from homemade butter. I have never seen her buying it from the store. She is a firm believer in homemade ghee. It tastes, smells way better than a store-bought one. Once you go this route, you will never look back. My Maa & NaniMaa makes “desi ghee” from malai. Cream refers to “MALAI” – Malai is a thick yellowish layer of fat and coagulated proteins that form a layer on the surface of the milk. It is formed when raw milk is heated for an hour and then it cools down completely. After that, a thick, yellow-toned layer of fat will form on the surface. But here in the Netherlands, that is not possible so I made ghee from butter.

Ingredients :

5 blocks of unsalted butter each 250 gms

Black cardamom – 1

Method :

  1. Place the butter in a clean pan on low heat. Let the butter melt, do not stir.
  2. Once the butter melts completely, let it simmer and add black cardamom. As the butter simmers, it’ll start foaming and splutter.
  3. Continue cooking the ghee on low heat for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure the milk solids don’t burn at the bottom. As it cooks, it’ll start to change colour from a bright yellow to slightly greenish and then to a light golden brown.
  4. Once the ghee becomes clear, stops foaming and the milk solids at the bottom turn brown, Ghee is ready 🙂 Let it cool for 40 minutes before straining it. Store it in an airtight jar.
  5. Ghee starts to solidify, but still runny in consistency. It gets lighter on color as it becomes solid.

Raksha Bandhan is here. A festival for celebrating the love between siblings. The common tradition associated with this occasion is the sister tying Rakhi on her brother’s hand and the brother on his part gifts his beloved sister something precious. Sister usually likes to prepare sweets, especially for this occasion a night before the celebration. 

Raksha Bandhan Special

Loaded with M&M and delicious chocolate brownie is a perfect way to celebrate Raksha Bandhan.

This chocolate brownie is not only egg-free but also contains no all-purpose flour or maida and uses oil instead of butter. The best part about this brownie is how moist it is. The Oats make this brownie soft and flavorful. I used whole wheat flour instead of maida or all-purpose flour to give it more nutritional value.

Oats are commonly eaten for breakfast as oatmeal, which is made by boiling oats in water or milk. Oatmeal is often referred to as porridge. Oats are loaded with dietary fiber and have a range of healthy cholesterol-lowering properties. Oats are hailed as one of the easiest to use ingredients.
