Chanya Ros - A Goan delicacy

Chanya Ros is a famous Vegetarian Goan breakfast. A very popular dish in almost all Goan restaurants. It consists of a combination of Patal Bhaji (white Vatana curry) and Sukkhi Bhaji(Potato Sabji) and relished along with Pav. Since my husband is from Goa, this is one of his favorite dishes. He has been eating this from his childhood along with some other Goan specialties which my Mother in law makes. So I got this recipe from my Mother in law and prepare this dish on those days when we want to have something special apart from regular Breakfast. Goa is commonly known for its seafood but there are also amazing vegetarian recipes that have been passed on from generations like Muga Gathi, Patoli, Tambdi Bhaji, Alsande Usli, and so on. This dish is also known as Chanya Tonak. The main ingredient in this recipe being White Vatana is a very good source of protein, minerals, and dietary fiber. It also helps in lowering cholesterol and regulating Blood sugar. Who would

Whole wheat Boule Bread

In French, boule means ball, and this is the shape the original bread makers would make their dough into. It is a hearty, squashed ball-shaped loaf. It can be made with any flour, leavened with commercial yeast or even sourdough. It may seem difficult to bake such a beautiful artisan bread. But trust me you can bake this perfectly by following the Instructions properly. The aroma of the bread in your kitchen when it's baked is just so good. The outer crust is perfectly crisp and inside it is soft and moist. Again this recipe you must try because mainly it is whole wheat and secondly you don't need a Dutch oven. You just need your Cast iron pan to bake this. I always opt to make my baked goods as healthier as possible. So I can serve it to my family guilt-free. I am not a regular baker since Indian food is cooked on a stovetop. But when I do, I make sure it has some nutrition along with the taste. You will just need a few basic ing

Whole Wheat BlueBerry Galette

Blueberry Galette is a classic favorite treat that is easy to make and easily customizable. Galette is basically a pastry dough wrapped around fresh fruits. They are originally a French dessert, which can be made without any tools and looks so beautiful and rustic. You can add in any seasonal fruit that you get and it tastes absolutely delicious with the bursting flavors of that fruit. And blueberry is one such flavorful fruit that we will be using in this recipe. This recipe is definitely much healthier than the usual one mainly in terms of the replacement of All purpose flour and refined sugar with Wholewheat flour and Coconut sugar. You must be knowing that All-purpose flour available in the market is so processed and refined that it doesn't contain any nutritional values. The same is the case with Refined sugar. Hence I always try to make sure that I use healthier alternatives in my recipe which also makes for a delicious dish. Now speaking a
