Crunchy Munchy Roasted Gram – Quick and Easy Munch / Snack

I hope the name looks funny – “Crunchy Munchy Roasted Gram”, since this snack was prepared by my hubby, during his bachelor days 😝, most commonly during the lazy times or with no pocket money, this would be their hunger food for sudden cravings with little job, easily available and less expensive ingredients. Recently when he was chatting about his good olden days in Bangalore more than 15 years ago, this resulted in the discussion of this recipe 😊.

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #176 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.

Mango Cheese Cake / Mango Cheese Cake with Condensed Milk

Usually I like cheese cakes, but thought it would be a big process to prepare and due to my laziness never tried it. But this time when my son’s birthday was nearing and on the other hand my mango mania – resulted in this process. The result was best and when my kids had this, my son wanted me to prepare it for his Birthday party 😊

  • Light brown sugar or sugar – ½ cup (optional)
  • Salt – ¼ tsp
  • Butter – 4 tbsp.

Making of Eggless Nutty Quinoa Pancake –

Preparation:

  • Rinse the quinoa in water for 4 to 5 times, otherwise it would give slight bitterness to the dish.
  • Boil 3 cups of water, add the rinsed quinoa, cover and cook until the quinoa turns soft and fluffy. It would increase in size once its boiled.
  • Crush the walnuts and almonds/badam to a coarse powder and keep it aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup of boiled quinoa, wheat flour, a tbsp. of butter, baking powder, salt, pour in the honey, coconut milk and milk, mix it all together and make sure no lumps are formed.
  • Heat a pan, add ¼ tsp of butter, spread it all over the pan, pour a spoonful of batter, at the center of the pan and spread it gently to a small circle.
  • Drizzle butter along the sides and little over top of the pancake.
  • Cook only in medium flame, otherwise it would get burnt.
  • After it starts leaving the sides of the pan, gently flip the side and cook on both sides.
  • Again drizzle, ¼ tsp of butter along the sides of the pan.
  • Remove it from fire, once it cooked.

Serve it hot with Honey or Maple syrup or Palm jaggery syrup or Hershey’s chocolate syrup. I have served it with palm jaggery syrup, as I have not added sugar to it.
