POHA - my breakfast today.

POHA  is a staple in my cupboard, allowing me to fix a quick breakfast or snack or a light lunch without much fuss. It is uncooked rice that has been flattened into flakes, like rolled oats. It cooks much faster than whole rice, and is easily digestible. The uncooked flattened rice is called ‘poha’ and the cooked savory dish is also called ‘Poha’. You will see many variations of this dish. Some add stir fried potatoes, and vegetables, I personally like to keep it simple mild spices and peanuts add a nice crunch to its otherwise soft texture. The addition of mango is optional  but takes the dish to a whole new level.
It is very easily available in Indian and international market as thick or thin flakes.

Rodrigo style fish with citrus cilantro sauce
Good morning google family!
I just want to let you guys know that all is well. I have barely had time to like, comment or read your posts. So for now blogging and social media has kind of taken a back seat and will  most likely stay there for the next little while. Fortunately, I had my camera handy when I made Pescado Rodrigo for our Sunday lunch. Pescado rodrigo is a classic Mexican recipe made with tilapia. The fish is seared until crispy, then flaked and served with a citrus cilantro sauce on a corn tortilla. We wanted to eat it as a full fillet. Thus, I made quinoa and braised carrots to serve alongside.

Orange Flavored Chocolate Risotto
A sweet version of creamy savory Italian risotto. Instead of cheese, wine and broth you put chocolate, orange juice and milk.

Mystery Ingredient
What am I?
I am a teeny tiny ingredient, pretty as a pearl.
I am mildly sweet, light, and easily digestible with a slight nutty flavor.
As versatile as you can think of, I can be used in sweet or savory dishes,
But I can be ground and popped, and even be used in making beer and wine.
 
I'm tagging +Rita Dolce , I am sure she has a secret ingredient hiding in her pantry.
You have one week to think of a mystery ingredient. Post about it in a similar way, then tag another person to lead the game.

Thanks +maria nasir  for tagging me.

I wish I could have one right now. This look so tempting +Jenni Field 
 
I'm starting a new series on cheesecake! Hoping to alternate Tuesdays between cheesecake and ice cream this season. First up, I made Gluten-Free Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cheesecakes. What makes them gluten-free, you ask? Aside from the fact that there is no flour in the batter, rather than go with a standard graham cracker crust, I went with coconut macaroons! Good call on my part, if I do say so myself!

Cream of Lambsquarter soup with toasted pumpkin seeds
I know that it’s April, and that it’s springtime but spring is not really a spring in Richmond, BC. You will get a week or so of nice weather and then it is rain again.
When I spotted lambs quarter,  an edible wild in an Indian market, I grabbed a bunch to make some soup. Bathu as we call this green in punjabi and bathua in hindi, is available for a short time only during spring and early summer. So , If you are having the same kind of cold and rainy weather (like we are) this nutrient dense soup will certainly excite you.

Just wanted to say hello to fellow foodies! I’m still here, but things have been pretty hectic in my part of the world that need my full attention. So for now blogging and social media has been put on the back seat and will stay there for next little while.
Thank you!

Very lovely poem on roses +Shamsa A. 
 
Roses are simply flowers
Blooming on their times
They can't smell their fragrance
Or see their pretty hues...
Our feelings give them meanings
Emotions lend them words
They hug the chest of grooms
And kiss the hair of maidens
They cry on fallen ones
And smile as heirlooms
Shamsa Anwar.

Spiced Parsnip Cake with Citrus Cream Cheese Frosting
Parsnips look like pale carrots but they actually contain much more folate than carrots. Their unique sweet, nutty and earthy flavor goes well with warm spices. Here I took the classic carrot cake recipe and changed things around to make a tender gluten free parsnip cake with citrusy and spiced cream cheese frosting.

Love to cook nutritious meals and putting healthy twist to classic recipes.
Introduction
A daughter, a wife and a mother. This is how people know me and perhaps describe me. What they don't see behind the roles is the woman who help (work for) her husband in his business and love to do gardening and write a food blog in free time.
Bragging rights
Cooking gives me satisfaction and I feel it is a way to show people that you love them. I can’t escape from this even if sometimes I want to, first its in my blood, I have seen my mother, aunts and other women in family doing the same, not as a chore but as providing nourishing meals to their family. Second cooking has become my passion and third I am gluten free. Cooking it myself gives me freedom to choose the ingredients that I want.
