Padmavati - The queen tells her own story.
I bough this book last year, at sharjah book fair, after reading a review in one of the FB groups. 
Though I bought it a year back, it caught my attention only last week, while I was cleaning my book shelf. 
I m a quick reader and I can read for hours undisturbed, not bothering the ruckus and chaos happening around me.
But I read this book slowly, only 2/3 chapters at a time, allowing the story to sink in me.
The narrative is superb, keeps us turn pages one after the other.  The author effortlessly weaves the past with the present, one chapter you will be with padmavati and ambika and in next chapter you will be walking  the old fort of Chittor with Uma and mrinalini. The author says  she took few hints from the historical facts and rest is all her imagination. I wish what she had written about ratan singh and padmavati’s love for each other is true. It is spine-chilling to read about the jauhar, imagine a few walked into it with a smile on their faces, my heart skips a beat. 
But at the end, who are we to judge, when you love something so earnestly you are willing to sacrifice anything, even your life.
An interesting read, if you love historical fiction and (I) also have the advantage of not watching the movie. 
A good read for the year 2019.

Looking for something light after all that scrumptious holiday cooking?
Here is a fresh and simple salad with quinoa and moong dal. Simple flavors, filling and light on tummy meal. I have made it quite a few times when my friends come over for a light meal and chit chat at home.
Do try and let me know how you like it

A quick sandwich to ward off that evening hunger. I m trying @almarai bran bread for kids for the first time. I was skeptical whether they would like the taste,  to my surprise both like the bread.
Banana, honey and nut sandwich is a usual at home, elder one loves savory sandwiches but lil one prefers his sandwich a tad bit sweet!
I have used almonds here,  you can go ahead and  use walnuts and even some peanut butter as spread!
Butter it nicely I have used a generous spread of @amul_india unsalted butter, and toasted it to golden perfect !
A quick, healthy and a filling snack for those evening hunger pangs!

Kootu Podi that doubles up as rasam podi also. Kootu is a traditional south Indian dish a semi solid sometimes a thick gravy of veggies and lentils. It is one of my favorite as I make it almost 4 times a week. It gets done it minutes in a pressure cooker.  This simple spice mix  adds magic to this dish. 
You can find many varieties of kootu powder, with little variation of spices.
Here is  mine, a recipe from my mom which I m following for the last 14 years!! I should actually call it a heirloom recipe 😊

It is the season of fresh strawberries, juicy, ripe, deliciously aromatic berries everywhere in the market and price makes it all the more tempting to buy!!
I buy 2 packs every week I go grocery shopping! I made some jam last week, shared with a strawberry hater and she loved the jam, she took the whole jar with her 😊 such is the love and taste of homemade goods! 
Here is a collection of strawberry recipes from my kitchen

An eggless whole wheat, mango and almond cake that is bursting with festive flavors. Mango and warm spices like cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and ginger , with roasted almonds for crunch, this is definitely one of the best cakes I made this year. Made with store bought @mothers_recipe kesar mango purée, can’t wait to bake with fresh mangoes when in season!!

A place for us ! An emotional read for me, I couldn’t stop myself crying while reading the last chapter, tears still rolling down my cheeks. A story that could happen in any household, 2 sisters and a brother, a strict father and a son protecting mother😊 I could easily find my mom in layla, not only in protecting her son, but when she makes sure her daughters follow the rules 😊.
Author has beautifully penned the relationship between all the characters in the story.  A wonderful read, thanks to @thepaintedphrases for the book, keep reading such treasures dear so i too could enjoy them from you 😃

For the second week of Bake-a-thon,i chose 'Fresh fruits in bakes"  as my theme, i baked our usual banana and oats loaf for the first day.  Loaded with walnuts and choco chips this eggless and whole wheat banana and oats loaf serves a perfect afterschool snack for your munchkins or as a scrumptious breakfast on a relaxed day. I have used brown sugar, that sugar can be easily replaced with alternate sweetners for a more healthier version of this quick bread.

Eggless whole wheat mango muffins, flavored with cardamom and cloves. I would call it a desi muffin, all desi flavors, mangoes and cardamom! I have made these with @mothers_recipe tinned mango puree, but can't wait for the mango season to try it with fresh mangoes. A wonderful addition to your festive bakes list!!!
