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 about blueberries,  you may already know that they are high in pectin, a natural sugar form, super source of antioxidants, boosts Immunity, and regulates blood sugar. So eating them in this delicious form will only do good for your body.

Also, you can add some toppings to enhance the taste and one such refreshing topping is Icecream.

This recipe requires minimal ingredients that you already have in your pantry. Nothing fancy and easily customizable with any fruit of your choice.

Let's dig in the recipe:

Makes 3 small size galettes
For the dough:
Whole wheat flour 2 cups
Coconut sugar 4 tbsp
Salt 1tsp
Butter (cold, cubed) 8 tbsp
Ice water 7-10 tbsp

For the filling:
Fresh blueberries 1 cup
Coconut sugar 2tbsp
Cornstarch 1tsp
Cinnamon powdered 1/2 tsp
Ground cardamom 1/2 tsp
Vanilla extract 1tsp
Milk for brushing.
Ice cream (optional)

1. In a large bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, salt, cubed butter.

2. Work with your hands /pastry cutter to mix the butter in the flour...such that the butter cubes turn into a size of a pea.

3. Add ice water 1tbsp at a time and mix thoroughly until dough becomes crumbly and hydrated enough to hold together.

4. Dump the mixture onto a floured surface and form the dough into a disc with your hands. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.

5. In the meantime, make the filling. Combine the blueberries, coconut sugar, cornstarch, powdered cinnamon, cardamom powder, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Mix well, cover and chill while the dough chills.

6.Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

7. Lightly flour the surface of a parchment paper that you can transfer to the baking tray after making the palette to bake. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts.

8.Roll out one part of the dough with a parchment paper on top into a circle about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick

9. Add the filling to the center, then fold the edges of the crust in.

9. Place the parchment paper carefully in the baking tray. Brush the edges with some milk.

10. Continue the same steps with the other two dough parts and place them on the baking tray.

11.Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until golden brown.

12. Serve warm or at room temperature with ice cream (if desired)

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
