Eggless Oatmeal-Walnut Cookies

Finally I baked eggless oatmeal cookies...its been on my list for very long time, for some reason kept pushing. While searching for the recipe today I came across Chef in you , I liked the idea of roasting oatmeal and walnuts and grinding them to fine powder. The author has used maple syrup and rice syrup in the recipe. In order to replace these ingredients , I used Madhurams idea of adding sugar and honey. End result, my cookies turned out just great!!!!


Oatmeal [quick cooking] - 1/2 Cup
Whole wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Walnuts - 1/2 cup
Vegetable oil [Canola] - 2 tbsp
Honey - 2 tbsp
Brown or white Sugar - 2 tbsp
Raisins - 1/2 cup
Cinnamon powder - 1tsp
Vanilla extract - 1tsp
Salt - a pinch
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp

  • Soak raisins in water and keep it aside.
  • Combine walnuts and oats and dry roast in a pan until it turns little brown and emits aroma. Cool and grind in a blender to make powder. Add salt, baking soda and cinnamon powder
  • In a separate bowl blend oil, honey, sugar and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, soaked raisins and mix thoroughly with a spatula.
  • Make a dough, pinch out small balls [almost 8] , flatten in the center and place it on baking sheet at least 2 inch apart and bake in the center of the oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes. Mine were browned in 11 minutes.
  • Cool and store in air-tight containers...

Water-just enough to prepare the dough
Food color - yellow [optional]


Pre-heat oven at 200 degree Fahrenheit. Line the baking tray/dish with un-greased foilCombine flour, water and color in a bowl to prepare little stiff dough Pinch out small balls from the dough and shape it into diyasBake it in the oven for 20 minutes [during the process I gradually increased the baking temperature to 300]Cool diyas at room temperatureThe diyas should feel little hard, if not just leave it in the sun Roll out some cotton wool to make wick, add some oil and light your Diya !!!Tips:
While preparing the dough you can add some fresh petals to add beautiful patternDuring baking, one of my diya's base puffed like chapati, it can hap…

Shimla mirch aur alloo sabzi [Potato bell pepper fry]

Back home I used to love bell peppers [aka capsicum, shimla mirch] and for some reason don't enjoy eating it here in the US. Being a vegetarian, its not a good idea to be choosy with limited vegetables available here :)) So I decided to cook a regular bell pepper and potato curry with a twist.....and my secret ingredient is MDH Paav Bhaji Masala [you can get in any Indian store ]. Trust me, Paav bhaji masala adds an extra zing to the sabzi and now its one of my favorites !! I hope you all gonna enjoy this one....


Potato - 2 medium
Bell pepper [Capsicum] - 2 medium
Onion- 1 big
Mustard seeds [rai] - 1tbsp
Turmeric - 1.5 tsp
*Paav Bhaji masala - 2tbsp
Corriander/Cilantro Powder [dhania] - 1.5tsp
Salt - according to taste
Green Chillie - 1 chopped

Boil potato, make sure you don't over boil them, else they will be mushyChop onions [slightly bigger pieces, it adds taste to the subzi (curry)]Chop bell peppers [not too big nor too small]
Heat oil, add mustard seeds a…
