2 Ingredient Teething Cookies

These teething cookies are healthy and so easy to make that you will never want to buy the store-bought ones ever. You babies/toddlers will love gnawing on them like there’s no tomorrow. Sammy likes to hold them by herself and she’s so happy that I let her do so.  We have teethers in all sorts of shapes and sizes and she easily gets bored of them but these cookies are such lifesavers. Here’s how I make them.

Multi-grain Porridge/Sathumaavu Kanji

I gave Sammy only ragi/finger-millet porridge initially as I was asked not to give her more than one ingredient at a time. This porridge is a mixture of various grains and millets that are very healthy. So I started giving this only around 7th month. The procedure to cook this is very similar to ragi porridge and it smells heavenly. I add fruit chunks or peanut butter to it to make it more flavorful and also she likes to gnaw on the fruits. Here’s how I make it.

Buckwheat porridge

Hey guys,
I’m here with another healthy porridge recipe/idea for your bub. My mom and MIL sent some amazing homemade porridge powders that I can cook into a porridge in a jiffy but I was looking for more options and my friend recommended this product to me which my bubsy loves. I started giving this when she was around 8 months. I cook this and add half an avocado or peanut butter or berries. Adding avocado/banana/nut butters/yogurt makes this porridge so creamy and filling. I add berries or other fruit chunks when she’s struggling with teething and gnawing on these fruit chunks helps her with the itchy gums. You can find this cereal in cereal aisle at Wholefoods. Alright, here’s how I cook it.

Ragi Kanji/Finger Millet Porridge

Ragi is one of the most nutritious food that you can give your baby. This was the first solid food Sammy had I think when she was around 5 months. I din’t add any sweetener like jaggery or sugar as she has got used to the natural flavor of the porridge. I just used to cook the porridge and add some breastmilk to thin the consistency of the porridge. Eventually as her appetite built up, I started adding mashed banana/peanut butter/ steamed apple to the porridge to give it a flavor. Here’s how I make it.

Banana-date-nut Bread


My husband and I go bananas over banana bread and it’s our breakfast staple at home. I have tried several versions of banana bread like this chocolate-banana bread, banana muffins, nutella-banana muffins. To be honest, this recipe is my favorite of all the ones I have tried to date. It’s vegan- no egg, no butter, no milk and yet so fluffy and moist. I have used part ‘whole wheat flour’ and part ‘all-purpose flour’ here, you can change the proportion to your liking. Here’s how I make it.

Glazed Lime Cake


I haven’t baked anything in yonks and was craving for something lemony since a week. I baked this glazed like cake for the first time 3 years back and we loved it so much that I wanted to try again. I’m usually very conscious while baking cake, I try to replace all purpose flour with wheat flour, white sugar with brown sugar, butter with oil but this cake has all sorta mean stuff- butter, white sugar, white flour and all sorta meany yum stuff. But it’s totes worth it. 😀

Spinach Dal Khichdi in Instant Pot

Long time, no IP recipes!! In fact not much recipes off late. The reason is I’m so so lazy these days that I hardly cook anything great but even if I do I’m lazy to take pictures! 😀 So I planned to make dal and rice yesterday but got so lazy that I dumped everything in IP and made dal khichdi. 😛 And it turned out so good especially on a cold winter night, this is such a heavenly comfort food! I usually make khichdi/dal with moong dal but I ran out of it and made with toor dal and loved it. If you don’t have a Instant pot, make the same thing in pressure cooker or rice cooker. Alright, here’s how I make it. Check out other Instant Pot recipes here. Read More …
