Homemade, healthy and super delicious![/caption] Food forms an important part of any culture which shapes its identity to some extent. We recognize certain authentic and popular Indian food items with the culture it is associated with, like the dal baati churma with the people of Rajasthan or sarsoon ka saag with the people of Punjab. Similarly, Litti Chokha resonates with Biharis as a staple meal and we are here to explore it’s recipe, with a slight twist. We have stayed in Patna, Bihar, for a few years, during the childhood days and both our parents belong to the state of Bihar. My mother has made Littis in the yester years, coupled with Chokha and my Dad reminisces the days when he would relish this good old combination, with mirth. Having heard many stories

Winter calls for a slice of cake with a warm cup of tea or coffee, isn’t it? And when the bake is made at home, made healthy, it’s definitely more desirable! We love cake! When there is nothing sweet available at home, we bake a cake and relish it! Having practiced healthy baking for over a year, we never want to shift to the store bought unhealthy ones that contain refined flours, sugars, preservatives and cake gel. Healthy homemade bakes are, anyday, the best option for a guilt free binge. The recipe we are sharing today is a pre Christmas bake that contains a citrusy taste, along with the decadent chocolate, but nothing is overpowering, due to it’s perfect balance! It’s eggless, fluffy, easy to bake and requires quickly available ingredients. We used a small size bread loaf tin for baking

To our utter relief, it came out perfect in the first attempt, which made all the efforts worthwhile! This a creamy dessert that you can enjoy a slice of, with your coffee. The burnet crust, gives it the golden touch and the perfect texture that it deserves. This is something new we tried creating at home, when we got tired of baking the usual cakes and cookies. It was a refreshing bake and a super yummy one, that we are now ready to share with you! Read
