Black sesame smoothie bowl

Smoothie bowls are perfect breakfasts on some days for me when I am not able to cook elaborate ones. This not only satiates your hunger but also fulfills your daily nutrition. I must say Sesame seeds are basically packed with health-boosting minerals, rich in calcium, magnesium, and copper. Especially black sesame is rich in calcium and good fats that are necessary for good health.

 So in order to make breakfast super healthy, I am here with a Black Sesame Smoothie bowl. Very simple and can be done quickly. You must try this recipe because it is sugar-free as you need to add honey or maple syrup.

You will require a black sesame paste which is very easy to make. You can add garnishes as you wish.

Let's dig in the recipe:

For the black sesame paste:
Black Sesame seeds 2tbsp
Honey /maple syrup 1tbsp

For the smoothie:
Black sesame seeds 2 tbsp
Bananas chopped 2 
Black sesame paste 1 tbsp
Honey 1 tsp
Milk/Coconut Milk 1/2 cup

For Garnishing:
Dried Coconut chips
Black sesame seeds
White sesame seeds


1. Let's make sesame paste which we will use in our smoothie. Toast sesame seeds in a pan on low flame until you get a nutty aroma. Then blend it in a mixer till the oils release and you get a paste out of it. Now add honey and blend again. Keep the black sesame paste separately.

2. With a mortar and Pestle, Grind the black sesame seeds.

2. In a Mixer Jar, add crushed sesame seeds, bananas, black sesame paste, honey, and milk.

3. Mix until blended, transfer to a bowl.

4.Top with blackberries, blueberries, coconut 
chips, sesame seeds, and hemp seeds.

Make this healthy and yummy breakfast for a good start of the day! Do give me feedback and share it with friends. Also do subscribe to get my recipes in your inbox.

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
