Gluten free fermented Buckwheat pancakes

Since becoming gluten free a year back, it has been an amazing journey. Firstly I got to learn and taste so many different grains but most importantly make recipes that taste so good and more nourishing than wheat!

Tender Coconut Chutney

It isn't common to make chutney out of tender coconut flesh. But the creamy taste and texture of this Coconut chutney is simply divine. I always find it difficult to save some for chutney whenever I buy these tender green coconuts.  There is a mad scramble to drink...

Gluten free pancakes (Chilas)

Chocolate

Gluten and egg free chocolate cake

Who doesn’t love chocolate? This simple cake has very few ingredients to make it an indulgence you can make most often. My earlier version had the usual flour in it. And since becoming gluten intolerant I have tried a few options. This one has amaranth flour in it...

Winter Sesame Truffles

Why does this recipe have the word winter in it? In traditional societies, seeds like sesame were eaten in winter because they created warmth. Eating them in summer generates heat in the body so it is not advisable. Sesame seeds have iron and calcium and it is the...

Labneh cheese balls

I first tried Labneh in the desert town of Deir-e-zor in Syria some 18 years back. At that time I was used to just Mozarella and Cheddar and the Indian cottage cheese called Paneer. So, this was a whole new experience for me. The sour tangy taste coupled with spices intrigued me. Basically it had the consistency of cream cheese with the sourness of yogurt. It was served with their Mezze, or with their chargrilled meats. In some restaurants it had coarse salt and garlic pounded into it giving it a very unusual kick. Raw garlic in cheese? It was a flavour I would never forget!

Superfood green chutney

Sometimes we just do the same things the way we have been doing it for years! It is hard to change habits, learn new ways and to discover and find efficient ways to do things. But when we do, it is like an "aha" moment and we wonder why we didn't think of it before!...
