Talk of stuffed parathas and you cannot do without mentioning the much loved 'stuffed paneer paratha'. Paneer has an exalted status in a vegetarian's diet and it has earned that name for all good reasons. These paneer parathas are stuffed with a filling prepared out of freshly prepared paneer and some spices. Served with an array of chutneys and a bowl full of yoghurt, it is protein packed in a vegetarian meal.

I am continuing with my 'stuffed dishes' theme of day 3 of Week1 of BM#89 and today I have this easy and delicious stuffed paneer paratha recipe to share. I usually make fresh paneer by curdling milk to use in making these parathas. However, you can also use ready to use blocks of paneer. Just make sure to grate or crumble it finely.

Let's check out the recipe now.

Rajasthani Mirchi Vada, as the name says is a popular deep fried fritter from the state of Rajasthan. Large green chillies are stuffed with a spicy potato filling and covered in a chickpea flour batter and are then deep-fried to perfection. An ideal snack to munch on during monsoons.

Almost every year to go to Jodhpur en route our visit to the shrine of our kul diety in Osiyan, Rajasthan. When in Jodhpur, you cannot do without enjoying its local street foods and this Rajasthani Mirchi Vada is one that tops the list, of course along with a glass of Makhanya Lassi. So, for the 2nd day BM #89 with chosen theme 'stuffed dishes' - I couldn't think of any other better recipe to share here.

Pune had its first pre-monsoon showers a few days back and with it, I was in a mood to enjoy some fritters with some 'kadak adrak wali chai'. So, I made these Rajasthani Mirchi Vada and enjoyed it with a cup of tea with my friend and neighbour.

Stuffed Gobhi Paratha is a simple and hearty Indian stuffed flatbread which comes with a flavourful filling of grated cauliflower. Just like Aloo Paratha, Gobhi Parathas are also a very popular breakfast dish in many North Indian homes.

When I chose Stuffed Dishes as one of the themes for BM #89, I was very sure that I would do some of my favourite paratha recipes here, and Gobhi Paratha was on the top of my list. As much as I would love to have a variety of veggies in my meals, the truth is I am a very choosy eater. And I have to admit that veggies like cauliflower, broccoli, etc., are not at all my favourite. The best way to consume them for me is in the form of parathas. That's the reason why this paratha makes an appearance in my menu every now and then.

Let's check out how I make Gobhi Paratha from scratch.

May 2018 - A Month That Flew By #GratitudeCircle

There is always something to be grateful for. Gratitude for the month of May 2018.

May was a month for me that just flew by! Yes, quite literally. And it ended on such a crazy note that I myself can’t believe what happened.

Life always has its own ways of throwing things our way; things that we think would never happen to us. So, when they such things happen, we can be reeling under it's after effects for days. The challenge is to accept the things as they are and that can be the most difficult thing; easier said than done. No regrets whatsoever, because I think if I were to pass through the same circumstances again, for the first time, I would do the same thing, again. But, will I let that happen again? I won’t comment there, because as I said life can throw a googly anytime but I am better prepared now. At least I think so.

May though fast, it was also memorable (or should I say unforgettable) one. While I may not seem to be all that appreciative of others, I know in my heart how thankful I am. And even if I try to put it all in words, I know my words will fail me. My way of handling things that I can't control is by distancing myself from it. That doesn't necessarily mean that someone did anything wrong or that I mean to hurt someone or be coldhearted. It is just that I would rather occupy myself with something else rather live in a dilemma. It's only sane to stop when you can see that there is a dead-end ahead. Making up your mind is one thing, convincing your heart is another deal.

Everything in life happens for a reason. And my problem is that I try to find a reason for everything!

On that note, let me begin my reflections on the month of May 2018.

Eggless Whole Wheat Almond Cookie Recipe | Eggless Baking | Cookies Recipe

Eggless Whole Wheat Almond Cookie Recipe
Eggless Whole Wheat Almond Cookie #Recipe
These eggless whole wheat almond cookies come with the goodness of almonds and whole wheat. So, shun the store bought refined flour cookies and enjoy these with a glass of milk.

Some time back, one of my fellow bloggers - Jolly, suggested that we try alphabet themed blog hop event and I was so excited about the whole idea. But, give it to my planning and execution, I am here with my blog post for the themed event on the very last day! Initially, I thought I would try something with apples. I had a couple of ideas - apple pie, apple crumble pie or applesauce brownies. But, none of those worked. And today, on the very final day for posting the recipe, this idea of almond cookies lit up in my head.

I just went into the kitchen, gathered all the ingredients and bingo - the cookies were done, photographed in good time.
