Dry Fruit Scones Recipe @

Dry Fruit Scones Recipe @

Dry Fruit Scones are far from plain, they are lightly sweetened,  thick but soft and delicious.  Made with plain flour, butter, milk  with baking powder as a leavening agent, it is pretty quick to prepare.

Had dry fruit mix in my pantry so I  incorporated them in this recipe. These tender, buttery scones are nicely moist. It is almost the same method as preparing the pie crust. You can add pretty much anything to this basic recipe. Savory, sweet, fruity or rich, you name it, it would probably work in scones.

The key to a perfect scone is to make sure you don't overwork the dough, otherwise the result will be a hard doughy scone. They're good enough to eat on their own!

Oatmeal Banana Cake Recipe @

A cake  for oatmeal lovers. This Oatmeal Banana Cake is super simple to prepare. It is slightly different from others you might have came across because my method requires no soaking of the oat.

With this cake I was able to avoid other desserts that had more sugar and  this cake requires no frosting too. I have sprinkled it with black sesame seeds but this is optional

By adding oat in your diet may help contribute to:

Reducing the risk of diabetes
Lowering cholesterol levels as part of healthy diet
Reducing risk of cardiovascular disease
Stabilizing blood sugar

Hot & Spicy Chicken Masala Recipe @

One of my family's  favorite dish is this  Hot & Spicy Chicken Masala.   When I cooked a special rice, this  was little spicy since I have used bird's eye chili in it but this is optional, you may omit if you can't stand the heat but trust me this tiny chili adds  a special punch to the dish.

Looks complicated  but actually it was easy to prepare. What you need is a blender/food processor to process the ingredients until smooth but I prefer to use my pestle and mortar to do the job.

Make sure to remove the skin and trim the excess fat from the chicken.  If possible, blend the spices without water since the juice from  tomato will aid the process. Hope you'll enjoy this  Hot & Spicy Chicken Masala as much as we do!
