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.

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Shrimp Biryani

Shrimp Biryani has a wonderful taste and flavor which makes it stand apart as one of the most popular and favorite among Biryani lovers. There are different ways to make an authentic shrimp Biryani. This is not an authentic one. It is inspired by the Goa shrimp Biryani which makes use of coconut milk and tomatoes instead of yogurt. When i read about this i had an instinct to make it as I wished to understand why Goa food is unique is in its flavor and taste. This recipe actually called for the traditional method of making it with raw shrimp and uncooked rice cooked in coconut milk. But I did not try that fearing that I will end up with a pulao. Luckily my method proved successful and the Biryani came out well and there is a wonderful aroma now in my kitchen.

Ingredients
For Rice
Basmati Rice- 1 1/2 cups
Water- 3 cups
Cardamon-2
Cinnamon- 1 stick
cloves - 2
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 tsp


For shrimp masala

Thai Fried Bananas

Thai Fried Bananas
Thai fried bananas is very popular in restaurants and also a yummy street food. When I first read the recipe it sounded interesting and I wanted to replicate this popular street food at home.It is made with Thai bananas and the batter is made with coconut milk and rice flour. The first time I saw these bananas fitters, I thought that it was just like the Kerala pazham pori/ plantain fitters. It looks somewhat similar,but this had a unique taste and favor.It has enticing flavor and taste of sweet banana, coconut milk and fresh grated coconut. The rice flour makes it super crispy.  This is a sure winner if you have sudden guests at home. 

You can find Thai banana at any South Asian market. If you cannot find them use any banana with a firm texture to make these fitters. Ripe plantains can also be used. It is a sweet dessert and can be served on its own,but to make it extra special serve it with some vanilla ice cream. Give this recipe a try, you will surely love it.


Goan Prawns Pickle

Goan Prawns Pickle
Pickled sea food like prawns and fish is often handy, especially when you are not in a mood for elaborate cooking. I have already posted a prawns pickle recipe shared by my mom. When I read about this spicy Goan prawns pickle, it sounded interesting and I decided to give it a try. It has a very unique taste and flavor,like the Goan Vindaloo and can be stored for over a month.

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
