Sweet and salty chocochunk Blondies

Hi all,

A Blondie is a rich sweet desert bar.It is similar to traditional chocolate brownies but substitutes vanilla for the cocoa used in brownies.

These are eggless, sugarfree and made with Wholewheat flour.So I have used jaggery powder instead of sugar which gives them a lovely flavour and also healthier to eat especially for kids.I have added yogurt instead of eggs which is always at hand.

I made these for one of the collabs /challenge which had the theme salty and sweet.They came out so well.My daughter loved them.

These blondies have both sweet and salty flavour which is amazing.Bored of eating just sweet desserts...try this out.You wont be dissappointed as the taste is new and amazing.

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.

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

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
