Whole wheat Cinnamon Pistachio Biscottis

Biscottis are basically Italian biscuits that originated in the tuscan city of Prato. These are usually oblong shaped, twice baked, dry, and crunchy biscuits best for your breakfast or evening tea time.

These are super easy to make and you will never go back to the store-bought ones. Totally customizable, you can make any flavor you want. The basic recipe remains the same with just the change in the flavor.
Since I always prefer a healthier alternative., I made these eggless biscotti with whole wheat flour and coconut sugar. I added pistachios that were in hand and cinnamon for that fall vibes which I am literally waiting to start!!
These can easily be made vegan by using dairy-free milk and butter. Definitely a great snack option, especially for kids to pack in their snack box or to give them as an after school snack. Since these days my daughter is attending an online school, she likes to munch on them during the break time. It keeps her filling and also very importantly there is no artificial preservative which I always stress to keep kids away from.

There are so many flavors that you can try...I choose the one which I have in my hand. With very minimal ingredients you can bake these healthy biscotti's at home and not have to depend on store-bought ones for snacks.!

Let's dive into the recipe

Whole wheat Flour 13/4 cups
Coconut sugar 1 cup
Baking powder 1tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Cinnamon powder 1/2 tsp
Organic butter 1/2 cup
Organic Milk 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence 1tsp
1/4 cup shelled pistachios

1.Preheat oven to 350-degree Fahrenheit.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and keep aside.

3. In a big bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon powder, and baking powder. Mix well.
4. Now add butter and mix well using the hands until combined.
5. Add milk, vanilla essence, and pistachios. Mix well again till completely combined and the mixture is moist throughout.
6. Gather everything and make a dough.
7. Divide the dough into two parts.
8. Make a log about 12 inches out of each dough portion, flatten them and place them in the baking tray...
8.Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Don't turn off the Oven, as we will be baking again. And then cool them down for 10 minutes.

10. Carefully transfer the logs on to a cutting board and slice on an angle into 1/2 -1 inch slice. Place the slices cut side down back onto the baking sheet and again bake another 7 to 10 minutes until lightly browned. Keep an eye on them. If thin, they may take less time.
11. Once done...remove them on a cooling rack and let them cool for some time. They will become crisp as they cool down.

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
