Artichoke Spinach dip


Artichoke Spinach dip is one of a cheesy dips which is my personal favourite and usually loved by all. A creamy cheese base with the goodness of Spinach and artichokes,a bit of garlic and of course topped with cheese, baked until golden and bubbly.

First time we had this in Boston in a Restaurant and loved it....I hope you will love it too.A very easy recipe to make for a party or a gettogether or just to munch on with crackers/bread /tortilla chips on a boring day.

Firstly, Artichokes are thistles which is a family of flowering plants characterised by prickly leaves.The outside of the bulbs which is green is not meant to be eaten.Only the inside soft part ie the heart(which we usually get in a jar of store bought marinated artichokes ) is edible. Plus they are packed with nutrients and antioxidants.Rich in fiber,Vitamin C and K and folate.

Secondly Spinch,which does not need introduction,a leafy vegetable rich in iron, fiber, Vitamin A and E.

So this isnt just a casual cheese dip...but totally delicious, filled with some goodness of these vegetables. 

This recipe requires sour cream, mozarella cheese,cream cheese, Eggless Mayonnaise and marinated artichokes which are easily available in stores.

I have used all organic ,grassfed diary products...It can also be made vegan by choosing the alternative vegan options.Also I have used organic eggless Mayonnaise.You can make just a spinach dip if artichokes are not available.It tastes just delicious.It can be stored in the Refridgerator for 2 to 3 days if you are lucky enough to have some leftover to store.Just heat it in Oven for 2 minutes and relish again.

So without wasting time ,lets dig into the recipe.

Organic Sour cream 8 oz
Organic eggless Mayonnaise 1/2 cup
Organic grassfed Mozarella cheese 3/4 cup

Eggless Brazilian Cheese Bread

Pao de Queijo (pronounced as pown -deh- kay-zho) aka Brazilian Cheese Bread is a small baked cheese bun, a popular snack and breakfast food that originated in the state Minas Gerais of Brazil. These are bread/buns usually made with tapioca flour, milk, oil, cheese, salt, and egg/egg substitute. Since I don't use eggs in my baking I have used vinegar instead. These are soft, chewy and so addictive. I love to make healthy bakes from all around the world. Inspired by this YouTube video by Something Dave and I gave it a try as it was an eggless version.These came out so well. These are super simple and easy to make with just five ingredients. A must try because they are gluten-free, contain no yeast, no baking powder, yet so soft and cheesy😋 I had never tried baking with tapioca flour...and found it so interesting to bake with. The dough is too sticky and you will need some extra flour to be dusted to make balls out of it. I have used plant-based pa

Huli pudi (Sambar Powder) North Karnataka style

Huli Pudi is one of the authentic traditional Sambar powders which has been passed on from generation to generation. This is specially made in North Karnataka. There is a wide variety of sambar powders not only within Karnataka but within South India. Each region has it's own way of adding ingredients and making them. In North Karnataka brahmin families, you can usually see two types of Sambars, firstly 'Saaru ' which can also be called Rasam with Toor dal. The consistency is thin and usually made with Tur dal and tomatoes or Tamarind. The other one is 'Huli' which is thicker in consistency and usually includes some veggies or greens. So here I am sharing the Sambar powder that is used to make a typical Huli. This is so unique and different from South Karnataka Sambar powders. The main difference being the omission of urad dal and Tur dal. This powder is just made with dried spices. This can be made in advance in large quantities/batches and stored in a
