Chicken Malai Boti :

Friday night finger-food is here !

'Malai' means cream and the very name suggests the texture of these delicious grilled chicken morsels.

Creamy, rich and flavourful, these boneless bites actually melt in the mouth and are seriously addictive .

Roll up in paratha, naan or pita bread with fresh salad to make a more filling meal.

Rose-colored glasses. Yes, that's what happens when you think others are like you and want only the best for you, are being genuine and truly have an honorable intent. You'd think I' learn to clean off my rose colored glasses. I'm talking about reality TV shows. I was cast on FOX Network's Master Chef season 2. Imagine my exhilaration finding out that news. I remember exactly where I was when I got that call from the head casting agent saying I w...

I love dates too, dear +Dana BK :) I eat them to curb my chocolate cravings at times :)) I would love to chuck in a banana for a creamier texture and some almonds for richer flavour into this shake with yogurt.
Tahini sounds like an interesting innovation, Dana! Not in shake but sometimes I use it in marinades that require almond paste when I'm out of almonds :)

A wonderful informative post on the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil by +Loretta Sebastiani. If you love Mediterranean food, you must check her blog for healthy, delicious and authentic recipes.
 
The extra virgin olive oil could prevent and cure diabetes
A group of researchers at the university La Sapienza in Rome published an interesting study in the journal Nutrition & Diabetes. The research results were also presented these days in the presence of the Chancellor Eugenio Gaudio. Francesco Violi is the coordinator of this study.
The study has shown that olive oil reduces blood sugar and increases insulin levels in healthy people opening up interesting perspectives on its use in patients with diabetes, in which the postprandial blood glucose can be very high and potentially damaging to the cardiovascular system.
In all the studies published until now it had never been identified the mechanism by which the olive oil interfere with glucose metabolism. On the contrary, in this research, glucose and lipid profile of 25 randomized  healthy subjects was analyzed, by experimenting with a "cross-over" methodology, the administration of a dose of 10 grams of olive oil in a meal with typical Mediterranean food. The researchers tested the effects of this administration in a lunch in which there was this extra virgin olive oil (first study) and in a lunch in which there was the seed oil (second study). Before the meal and 2 hours after,  the carbohydrate profile of the subjects (glucose, insulin, and incretins) and lipid profile (cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triglicerididemia) were studied.
The research results have shown that two hours after the meal, the subjects taking olive oil had significantly lower values of blood sugar and higher levels of insulin; besides it was recorded a significant increase of incretin hormones and a significant reduction in serum cholesterol too. 
I have always said that eating according to the Mediterranean diet is very healthy! :))

Flourless Chocolate Muffins with Plum Sauce :
Moist, light and oh so good ! My very first experience of baking flourless chocolate muffins but I think this is how I shall always bake them from now on .

The sweet and sour, luscious red sauce from fresh plums and a dollop of cream turned them into a sweet temptation hard to resist. I love a little dessert for breakfast on weekends, don't you?

Have a great weekend!
