Some glimpses from an Italian kitchen


By Tripti

Hello my lovely friends…

I am back and this time with some glimpses, directly from an Italian kitchen. Since I promised I will bring you all the enthralling stuff I find here, presenting you a different  yet delicious and healthy snack recipe right here, right now… ;-)
My heartiest thanks to Maria, one of my Italian friends, for enhancing my cooking skills. Perhaps, you will too find the same reason to thank her by the end of this post. So friends, here it is …

 the awesome Vegetarian Salty Muffins, step by step J

By the way how you will feel if somebody brings you a salty ‘Rasgulla’. Exactly, the same was my reaction, when I heard of vegetable Muffins. Those sweet, spongy, chocolaty and different flavored muffins could be salty and with vegetables too brought me here for another chit-chat.

Muffins are something, which could be best explained as an ‘Oxymoron’ to me. It’s a soft & sweet pleasure to tongue and the worry of loads of calories too. So, this idea made my situation easy and I booked a small tour to Maria’s kitchen. The recipe is extremely simple, you have everything available at home, what’s less is your attention and motivation.

The ingredients are even simpler than a normal Indian curry. Simple ingredients like all purpose flour (used for cakes too)-240 gm, eggs-2, sunflower oil-5 big tea spoons, salt, milk-200 ml, baking powder- 1 big teaspoon or 15 gm,black pepper, chilly, oregano (if available), cheese ( if available) and vegetables as used in noodles like cabbage, carrot, capsicum, onion, green-peas and also  olives, cucumber and tomatoes. Ingredients are quite flexible.

You could always be innovative and therefore I would like to sautĂ© vegetables with little spices instead of putting them fresh. You just have to mix and blend them properly.

This is the trickiest part; don’t rush while blending it as it’s can’t be skipped to get fluffy muffins. Pre heat your oven a bit and then put the batter in muffin liners and bake them at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Allow them to stay a bit later in oven and next… call your friends, family, and kids to have a perfect chai-time.

Earlier, to dress up for college & work used to put me in dilemma and now cooking has replaced it. Yogesh loved it and I am happy that I can even store it for some days… so; I have kinda solved my dilemma of a perfect & healthy snack and perhaps you too. and yes out of all what I loved the most, was Maria’s daughter Julia, who made all possible efforts to make this recipe taste and look good (in the post).
