Recipe: Ganesh Chaturthi Special - Ready in less than 15mins

Hello Readers, Vinayaka Chavithi aka Ganesh Chaturthi is around the corner. No Indian festival is complete without sweets. Irrespective of the big menu we lay down, Lord Ganesha's birthday platter is incomplete without his favourite laddus. Today I am sharing a simple and very well known laddu recipe in every household. However, this is my mom's recipe. I have eaten this from so many popular sweet shops, my friends' house, neighbours' house but none of those is near close to the ones my mother makes. Along with a secret ingredient, the laddus she make will have loads of "Maa ka pyaar" (mother's love) making them taste the best!! This is one particular sweet I don't prefer to eat from anywhere else.  The recipe I am sharing today is "Rava Laddu". I know this makes you nostalgic and takes you back to your childhood. At least I could say, it definitely does take me back. This is one such sweet item that used to be a regular in most of the festiv

What to feed 6-12 months baby?

Yay.... your baby has turned 6 months and is ready to try on delicious food other than his staple food - milk. Starting on solids could be exciting and a bit relieving to moms, as they don't have to worry about their milk supply, feeding the child in public places or away at work etc. While this is true to an extent, we have to take it slow and introduce solids to baby gradually. Breast milk or formula will still be baby's primary food and source of nutrients, complemented with solids until he completes his first birthday.  In this post, I shall explain about few aspects which moms in general would like to know while introducing solids.  Follow me on  Instagram  and  Facebook  to get notified about my latest articles!! What is the right stage to feed solids? Pediatricians suggest to start babies on solids only after they complete 6 months.

Book: One Arranged Murder by Chetan Bhagat

It's been quite a while I read Chetan Bhagat's novel. When I searched for his recent publishes, I was surprised to see two titles that missed my notice - One Arranged Murder and 400 days were published in the years 2020 and 2021 respectively. I have read most of Chetan Bhagat's fictional novels right after their release. His writing style is very simple, witty and free-flowing; his characters are so relatable, like the girl next door or one from our friends gang or simply just like us; most appealing aspect of his works is the story that makes us wanting to read through the end in a single sitting. For most of us, Chetan Bhagat became a house hold name after the release and success of the Bollywood's comical drama, 3 Idiots directed by Rajkumar Hirani. This movie is based on Bhagat's first fictional novel Five Point Someone, with Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Sharman Joshi in the lead roles. For those unfamiliar, Chetan Bhagat is an Indian Author, columnist and youtuber.

Recipe: Spinach Corn Pasta

Pasta, an Italian born ingredient, has won the hearts of food lovers all over the world. Who can deny pasta loaded with cheese? At least I can'tšŸ˜  Pasta is normally made out of wheat flour, salt, water in combination with or without eggs. Variations of pasta made with rice, corn, quinoa and other legumes are available as well. Pasta can be made in different shapes and sizes, while Spaghetti, Lasagna, Fettuccini, Macaroni, Conchiglie, Penne, Farfalle, Fusilli, Ravioli and Riccioli are quite famous varieties. We can cook pasta in white creamy sauce, red sauce, pesto sauce or just with cheese. Pasta can also be baked, made into salads, added into soups; making it a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes. If you have boiled pasta handy, the recipe I am sharing today recipe can be easily made within 10 minutes and can be eaten for break fast, lunch, dinner or a snack. It is well suited for birthday parties, family get togethers and weekend dinners. Even it can be
