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.

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…
