Avocado Honey Muffins



Avocado Honey Muffins

Muffins are perfect breakfast and this combination of avocado and honey is really delicious,especially when it is nice and warm and fresh from the oven.Avocados and honey keeps the muffin soft and moist. It is oil free and tastes really good and is healthy too. I have used  avocados in chocolate cup cakes in place of butter and it came out really soft with no after taste. I added a little of butter scotch chips, you can add chocolate chips of nuts according to your preference.

Ingredients
Flour- 2 cup
Baking powder- 1 tsp
Salt- 1/3 tsp
Egg-1
Avocado- 1 whole+ 1/2
Honey- 1/4 cup
Sugar- 1/4 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Butter scotch chips- 1/3 cup
Milk- 1/3 cup


Mix flour,salt and baking powder and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degree f and line muffin tins with liners.
Cut avocado an scoop out the flesh. Using a fork mash it really soft or make a puree of it using a mixer. Mix in honey and keep aside.
Beat egg and sugar till it is light and fluffy. Add the dry ingredients along with the mashed avocado,vanilla essence and milk and fold in till all come together is combined. Mix in the butter scotch chips and fold in once more. Divide the batter equally among the muffin tins and bake for about 15- 18 minutes till it is slightly golden on the outside and the tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy!

  29. Hello, Suja, Right now I am making your Oreo Cookie Cake. I am just waiting for the frosting to chill so that I can spread it in the cake. I made some changes on it because I did not have enough flour but the cake still turned out delicious. I am going to post it in my blog next week.

Stuffed Squid

Stuffed Squid
Squid is a unique and yummy sea food delicacy that can be prepared in a variety of ways. Squid rings or fried calamari's is a the most popular and is a great appetizer. Squid is staple in many seafood restaurants. It is also popular street food in several south Asian countries.Squid is enjoyed in the coastal belt of south India especially in Kerala and Tamilnadu.In Kerala squid is known as koonthal or Kanava.

Squid is one of my favorite sea foods-roast squid, deep fried,stir fried or squid curry-I love them all.Squid has a mild flavor and gentle sweetness and marries well to any flavor and taste of your choice. Squid can be stuffed before roasting or frying,its tubular body called mantle is great for stuffing. You can get creative with the stuffing- use prawns,fish,pork, cheese, bread crumbs,olives,rice or anything of your choice.

Today's recipe is a stuffed squid with spicy prawn filling.The dish is inspired by a similar preparation from the book Classic H…

Kerala Fish Curry ( Mulaku Curry)

Kerala's Red Fish Curry or the Mulaku Charu is hot and spicy fish curry. Its rich color is from Kashmiri chilly powder which is less spicy when compared to regular chilly powder.

Fish curry and rice or fish curry and kappa pukku is the absolute comfort food for every malayali. The state is blessed  with long coast line, backwaters and lake and Keralites are great fish eaters. Red fish curry tastes awesome and you can find this type of fish curry everywhere-in  homes, restaurants,toddy shops or boat houses for tourists. Even though this curry is staple for the malayalis, you will still find a lot of regional variation to this recipe. Each region and each home has its own adaption of fish curry.

The tamarind used in this recipe is Kudampuli/ Gambooge/Malabar tamarind. You can find this in abundance in Central and North Kerala. This souring agent has lots of medicinal value and helps aid digestion.
Malayalis love adding coconut to every dish, but this curry is an exception. But it…
