The avocado was introduced to me by my SIL, almost 24 years ago, and I instantly fell in love with it and haven't grown out of it. I'd happily eat it on its own, but a couple of times I have prepared few dishes using Avocados like Avocado and Strawberry salad with Honey Vinaigrette , Avocado Dill Cream , and Avocado and Fenugreek Paratha, which were all phenomenal.

Last year I saw Avocado Toast recipe pins were flooding onto Pinterest feeds, they were so tempting, so I jumped on board the Avocado toast express. I know they are all the rage right now! So one morning, whilst I was eating it, I asked my kids and husband to try it. In the evening I had a phone call from husband, "Do we have enough avocados, or shall I bring some for you?", he said, next morning he wanted to have avocado on toast :) We love mashed avocado immensely, especially with Rye bread. For a long time, we ate it the same way, just mashed the avocado and spread on the toast, sprinkle a little salt and black pepper.

But then, I wanted a veg and protein packed breakfasts,  so I prepared avocado butter by using pistachio nuts, as they offer a good source of protein, fats and minerals. The addition of roasted mushrooms and tomato made this breakfast meal more healthy and we achieved our goal to 7-a-day, yes you read it correctly, health experts are now saying that seven is a magic number to stay fit and healthy.

In the family, everyone enjoyed this creamy and crunchy, all in one super delicious bite. It's totally balanced both in flavours and nutrition. Actually, this toasts can be eaten as a light summer lunch as not much prep to do. In other words, excellence!

Notes:-
Make sure you use thick and hearty bread slices, so the toast is able to hold the toppings. I have used Waitrose Rye and wheat dark sourdough bread.

Almond, Coconut and Pineapple halwa using Vita Coco Coconut Milk Alternative - #TasteslikeNoUdder #Vegan

Almond-Coconut-and-Pineapple-halwa-Jagruti's-Cooking-Odyssey
Almond, Coconut, and Pineapple Halwa, what can I say about it? This halwa is so good and even more simple to make. This rich and sumptuous halwa pairs really well with Potato and Chickpea Curry and Poori (Deep fried Indian Bread) makes an indulgent breakfast or brunch on a lazy weekend.

Almond-Coconut-and-Pineapple-halwa-Jagruti's-Cooking-Odyssey

In some part of  North India and Pakistan, many people follow this tradition religiously. Mostly on a Sunday morning, for a comfort and filling breakfasts, people love to devour Halwa ( mainly suji ka halwa-semolina Pudding), Potato and Chickpea Curry and Poori. Most of the time, women of the house would prepare this delicious meal in the morning, but I've seen hundreds of people queuing up outside the roadside stalls or restaurants where they serve you this meal. Rich and sweet Halwa, Spicy and tangy Potato and Chickpea Curry with soft and pillowy Poori is one killer combination you must try once in a lifetime, a serious blast of yumminess in one meal!

Almond-Coconut-and-Pineapple-halwa-Jagruti's-Cooking-Odyssey

In my family, there will be always four yes's for this combination. Mostly I would prepare for a Sunday brunch, so I don't need to worry about lunch as this meal heavy on the stomach.While we devour with the whole family we would watch either Movie or recorded programmes.  Being health conscious we don't indulge too often. Nowadays I only prepare this breakfast ONLY on daughter's request as she studies away from home.  Past many years I have made amendments in this combination, instead of Suji (semolina) halwa, I prepare Badam (almond) halwa and sometimes pan fried Paratha replaces the deep-fried poori.

Almond-Coconut-and-Pineapple-halwa-Jagruti's-Cooking-Odyssey

Last weekend on daughter's request we prepared it for a Sunday Brunch, oh yes, before she arrives home, she sends in her menu requests. Suji or Badam halwa is mainly prepared with dairy products. This time Badam halwa is prepared with a little twist, ghee and milk were out, coconut milk and oil were thrown in and for a change, pineapple has been added to compliment the coconut, allowing tropical flavours to shine through. Family went absolutely bonkers for it :) and we watched a couple of Quantico episodes and daughter packed a good amount of halwa and Curry with her. Instead of a Poori, we made Layered Coconut Doodh-Milk paratha. Glad I tried it, and it was a great success.

Wishing you a food-filled weekend!

Now that warmer weather is approaching, we are more comfortable with cold and refreshing breakfasts, but still, use same ingredients like oats and buckwheat. In recent times I have been bitten and then smitten by the buckwheat bug. The Buckwheat wave has just swept me off my feet. And these days Buckwheat comes on top of the list for most of my recipes. Once again these humble Buckwheat were in the main lead and because warmer days there is coconut, mango for tropical flavours and I used cardamom as it does go really well with coconut and mango flavour.

Over night coconut, cardamom and mango buckwheat porridge
Since quite some time now, in my family, we don't eat high sugar fruits such as mango, banana, pineapple or watermelons too often and definitely not in the evening. Only in the morning with heavy protein food. Currently, Alphonso mangoes are back and they are in abundance in Indian grocery stores. Oh yes, this Alphonso makes me weak at the knees, I picked up a couple of boxes before they vanish from the market. While I was carrying them to the car, today's recipe was dancing in my head.

Remember I mentioned here, that couple of years back I tried raw buckwheat mango smoothie and I thought that I will never able to make that again, so this time instead of blending everything into a smoothie, thought of keeping everything whole.
Over night cardamom, coconut and mango buckwheat porridge
This porridge recipe is straight forward, with no cooking require at all. I would not mind making it every day. This creamy overnight buckwheat porridge has this unique earthy and rustic flavour, with coconut milk, fresh mangoes and a pinch of cardamom counteracts that natural nuttiness of buckwheat and makes a lot easier to eat. This porridge is right what my body needs!

Indian women and their love affair with gold is known to the whole world, for Indians, gold is that ultimate love object. As much as we love gold, we love saffron and obviously take great pride in decking up with gold and cooking with saffron, the world's priciest spice. Well, let me tell you about me then, I love to cook with saffron but not so much keen on gold.

Veagan Saffron and British Asparagus Pasta-Jagruti's Cooking Odyssey
In our recent visit to Zurich, we were invited to the Hiltl, world's oldest vegetarian restaurant.  We tried for the first ever time saffron pasta, since then these awesome flavours were dancing in my head. The waiter who was looking after us at Hiltl, told me about all the ingredients they used in this recipe so I had a rough idea how to cook this pasta.

Now that British Asparagus is appearing plentiful on our markets and shops, it was time to pick up a bunch as they are here for only 8 week season. So this time it went in this pasta dish.
British Asparagus Jagrutis cooking odyssey
Although in original recipe, Hiltl suggested double cream, but to keep dish little lighter I used coconut milk and skipped any kind of cheese, also butter was replaced with coconut oil, still, pasta was fabulous and the whole family enjoyed it immensely. This creamy and vibrant  pasta can be served as a starter or a main meal . If you serve as a starter I recommend keeping the portions very small.
Veagan Saffron and British Asparagus Pasta-Jagruti's Cooking Odyssey
Notes:-
Use dairy cream and butter if you like.
Sprinkle cheese once pasta is done, vegan can use nutritional yeast.

That means each of these little delicious truffle has healthy protein and fibre along with chocolate and coffee deliciousness!
Vegan Mocha Chia seeds and Mixed nuts Truffles
Whenever daughter visits us over the weekend, I always make an effort to prepare some nutritious treats for her to take with. She loves Medjool dates, that takes care of her sweet cravings. According to health experts Medjool dates are the healthiest natural sweetener with bucket full of good benefits.
Vegan Mocha Chia seeds and Mixed Nuts Truffles
The base of this recipe is dried fruit, but they don't contain any refined sugar, the dates in these truffles makes them sweet, but they won't send you in sugar coma as nuts and chia seeds will balance it out as they are full of protein.  Chia seeds are my favourite go-to add in for so many things.

Notes :-
Instead of mixed nuts, you can prepare these truffles only with one kind of nuts.
Omit coffee powder to make this completely raw.
Unsweetened Cocoa powder can be used if you can't get hold of raw cacao powder.
If you are not using high quality soft dates, soak them in a warm water for half an hour, then discard the water and dry off dates very well.
Although these truffles are made with good-for-you ingredients and 100% natural be sure not to binge on these, especially if you are suffering with high sugar levels as they contain a lots of sugar from dates.
