Cheedar Cheese Filled Rolls

It’s raining here again... so it was perfect for me to bake again. In the past, I’ve had my share of baking failures but I’ve moved on. After a quick scan, I found that I had all the ingredients for making some simple cheese filled rolls.

I truly loved my baking experience as I saw the rolls raising up and turning golden. My kitchen turned into a small bakery and loved all the aromas.


All-purpose flour 2 cups

Active dry yeast 1 envelope (about 2 teaspoons)

Olive oil 1/2 cup

Cheddar cheese (shredded) ½ cup

Salt to taste

Sugar 1 teaspoon

Lukewarm water1/2 cup


• Pour some lukewarm water in a small bowl and dissolve active yeast and sugar in it.

• Let this mixture stand for 10 minutes until foamy.

• In a large mixing bowl mix flour, salt, olive oil and the yeast mixture.

• Mix all the ingredients to make a soft dough. Use water if required.

• Cover the dough with plastic wrap for almost 2hrs for the dough to rise.

• Punch the dough onto a lightly floured surface to remove air.

• Divide dough into 12 equal pieces.

• Lightly grease the baking pan.

• Roll the dough into long cylindrical shape.

• Place the cheese in between.

• Roll the dough again to cover the cheese.

• Bring both the ends together to give it a circular shape.

• Set the rolls about 2 inches apart on the pan.

• Brush tops carefully with some olive oil.

• Bake them in a pre heated 180C oven for 15 minutes until golden brown.

Punjabi Karela Sabzi

Here’s this bitterly sweet recipe that I've been dying to share with you. As a kid there was this one veggie that I have always found super intimidating was – Bitter Gourd. As years have grown by, I have started liking mom’s Punjabi style karela recipe. Mom was behind me to use it on a regular basis as it helps in controlling blood sugar levels. Did I ever mention that she made me drink bitter gourd juice every morning on an empty stomach to control my blood sugars? Actually it helps. It has plant insulin which brings down your sugar levels. Back to the recipe…I saw it…I grabbed it....and then I got home, and didn't really know what to do with it. I have always eaten at my Delhi home but never made it myself. Googled but wasn’t very sure. One international call, jotted the recipe on back of the grocery bill and decided to make it instantly.

Diabetic Friendly Eggless Chocolate Cake

After visiting a sugar free chocolate studio, I was really inspired to bake something on my own. Chocolate cake seemed to be the best way to start. Ditching the traditional way of making sweets and savories for Vijaya Dashmi, I baked a cake for hubby and a small group of Indian friends.


All purpose flour 1 cup
Salt ½ teaspoon
Baking powder 1 teaspoon
Baking soda 2 teaspoons
Unsweetened cocoa powder ½ cup
Sugar substitute – 6 teaspoons
Vegetable Oil – 1 cup (I used sunflower oil)
Milk – ½ cup
Vanilla Extract – 1 teaspoon
White sugar free chocolate 1 slab


Preheat the oven to 160C

Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and sugar substitute into a large mixing bowl.

Add vanilla extract, oil and milk. With an electric mixer, beat at medium speed for 3 to 4 minutes.

Grease the baking pan with oil and flour. Pour the batter evenly into the baking pans.

Place the pan on the middle shelf and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a knife inserted int…

Smoked Vegetable Biryani

I have to admit that when I’m cooking something new, I aim to post the recipe here. But luck doesn’t always favor. Either the picture is not satisfactory or we are too impatient to wait for the photo session to get over or the dish itself disappoints me. I have to admire the food bloggers, who are so regular in posting new recipes with beautiful looking pictures.
Anyway, I’m glad to post a new recipe here after getting convinced that this biryani is the best that I have ever made.  The biryani features many of the same ingredients that I have used all these years but the end result is entirely different. I thought it would be fun to show that with the simple addition of charcoal, you can take the recipe to an entirely new direction.

This recipe is my aunt’s, who learnt it ages ago while doing her home science course. She then passed the recipe to all her sisters and that’s how I got to learn how to cook vegetable biryani.
The only change/ addition that I made was the use of charcoal smo…
