As a kids we are used to eat roasted peanut and date ladoo, that combo tasted awesum ! Usually my mom made this dish often as they are rich in protein and sugar fee. Peanut and Dates Ladoo belongs to my childhood. I really crave for any types of ladoo’s that my mom makes. I liked to feed my daughter and hubby healthy and protein rich rather than fat rich or sugar rich sweets. Very simple to prepare with only two ingredients. Now move on to this quick and healthy recipe.

At last summer is here Now kids are ready to go in the swimming pool, parks, gardening, cycling and many more activities will go on. To beat this heat, reduce hunger and get some energy, I regularly make this mango milkshake with less time, and my daughter gulp it immediately. In Maharashtra we called Mango is a ‘’king of fruit ’’. They are sweet and juicy.
The seasons first mango recipe is here. Mango milkshake is the best summer drink !
This is classic Indian recipe made from ripe mangoes and milk. This is thick, creamy and delicious recipe of milkshake.

Here is healthy chapati / flat bread, made with spinach. Chapati is main in our Maharashtra cuisine and our daily meal is incomplete without chapati. It is always hard to convince kids to eat greeny and leafy vegetables. So I always try to add new ingredients while making chapati dough. Also Spinach is known for rich source of iron, so I try to add it in many dishes. Spinach or palak chapati is not just colorful, but flavorful and healthy too. Kids might also love the color and its surely change for them from the regular chapati. This recipe is definitely worth to try !

Rava Idly is my favorite as it’s a quick recipe. I am enjoying rava idly since we came here (USA). That time my daughter was too small, was not even crawling. At that time it was hard to make full meal. Then one of my friend suggested this instant Rava Idli recipe. Easy and quick idly, after making this I am big fan of this recipe. I was using packet/ready made mixture, but thought of making it at home. It turned out perfect after 3rd attempt !! I tried this idly using Eno frit salt or Baking soda, both are perfectly came out. Try this soft and tasty rava idly, I am sure your family will love this !!

Aloo Simla Mirch is quick and easy side I have been making at least twice a week. It cooked fast, so never remain raw or uncooked. This dry vegetable curry that has no liquid and it doesn’t need to be ‘’chopped fine’’. I usually stuff this subji in the middle of chapati and make a rolls for my daughter. It is very easy to carry and also healthy filling. It tastes best when it is hot and can be served with Naan, Rotis.

Cheesy Capsicum Toast is very quick and easy breakfast recipe. I learnt this recipe from one of my friend when we had tea party. They were too delicious, my daughter loved it. These easy to make cheesy toasts can go with various toppings.
It can be made on stove top too. Just toast the slice on tava / pan ( check the notes for details ). I have tried both oven and stove top methods, both are easy and quick. Toast came out crispy cheesy and flavorful. This is one of the best recipe for kids with glass of chilled juice.

As weather is changing day by day, we get clear indication of summer . Its is just around the corner. What can be the better than the flavor of raw mango. “Raw mango panna” is the ultimate drink to survive in summer.
‘Chaitra’ is the first month of Marathi calendar. In this auspicious month we celebrate ‘Chaitra Gauri Haldi Kumkum’. This is mainly for girls and ladies. We prepare some snacks which is made from raw mango like raw mango with lentil (Kairichi dal) and Aam panna. We invite gals and ladies staying nearby to come and enjoy this function. My mom would keep a large woke of panna ready for this function.
I think she makes the best Panna in the world. I have used her recipe. Here is the quick recipe to this summer chiller.
