Urad Dal Kheer/ Urad Dal Payasam/Ullundhu Payasam

Urad dal kheer is a traditional drink prepared in Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu and this drink is prepared with healthy ingredients in it. Though this kheer calls for urad dal, dry ginger, palm sugar and cardamom, this payasam tastes absolutely delicious when served warm or else chilled. This drink is definitely an energy booster especially for girls and growing kids. Simple to prepare, this kheer gets ready very easily if you go for pressure cooking. Since i used palm sugar instead of jaggery or sugar, the addition of palm sugar aka panang kalkandu makes this delicious payasam more healthy as this palm sugar is loaded with many interesting medicinal values. Palm sugar helps a lot to deduce body heat and this sugar is rich is iron, obviously its definitely healthy with loads of nutritional values.

Iranian Barbari Bread/Noon Barbari/Naan-e-Barbari

Barbari bread is a type of flat bread which is quite popular in Iran and its neighbouring Armenia. Barbari means our fathers or else related to Barbars in Persian language. Barbars are a group of people who lives in Eastern borders of Iran. Obviously not need to explain that this bread comes from this group.Coming to this Bread, its often eaten with cheese with herbs, jam, or else simply with a cup of tea for breakfast. Its almost like our Indian Naan bread,and this bread is also known as Naan-E-Barbari or else Noon Barbari. However Persian also makes this bread as much as like Iranian. This bread is usually shaped as a longish oval and this bread calls for roomal, a flour paste prepared using flour and baking soda. This flour paste helps a lot to stretch the yeasted dough and this paste is also used to spread over the bread to give a deep brown colour after baking.

Blueberry Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze

I have been looking for a chance to bake something with berries since a while as berries are showing their heads in our farmer's market. Finally i baked this incredible bundt cake with one of my favourite berry aka Blueberry. Not to forget that i just adore bundt cakes very much. Since i got an original bundt cake pan from my cousin sister which she brought me all the way from USA, i just treasure it. My today's post goes for a super spongy, airy, and soft bundt cake with blueberries, to make this cake more interesting, i prepared an easy breezy glaze with lemon. This is a classic bake though it took me almost a year to bake as i was looking a prefect bundt pan. Coming to this bundt cake, this cake makes an excellent dessert, breakfast or else evening snacks. Served along with a scoop of icecream, this bundt cake makes a fabulous dessert too.
