Today, I am going to present a healthy and tasty baked dish with simple vegetables (veggies are absolutely your choice). Baked veggies are so yummy and filling, simple yet fabulous. This is especially delicious in Wintertime, when we always crave warmer foods. You may serve it as a party or potluck dish too.....

5-6 Florets of Cauliflower
1 Medium Potato, Cut Into Medium Cubes
1/3 Cup Sweet Corns (frozen)
1/3 Cup Green Peas (frozen)
3 tbsps Chopped Red Bell Pepper
3 tbsps Chopped Green Bell Pepper
1/2 of a Medium Carrot, Cut Into 1/2" thick cubes
2 tbsps chopped Parsley Leaves
3 Processed Cheese Cubes, Grated (I used Amul cheese cubes)
1 tbsp Butter
Salt to taste
Black Pepper Powder to taste
1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes

1&1/2 Cup Milk
2 tbsps Butter
2 tbsps All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Sugar
A pinch of Nutmeg Powder
Salt and Black Pepper Powder to taste


Boil potato, cauliflower, sweet corn, carrot and peas for 10 minutes. 

Drain water completely and set aside.

Take butter in a microoven safe bowl. Micro at 100% MW power for 30 seconds.

Mix all purpose flour in it. Fold nicely. Micro at 100% MW power for 1 minute.

Pour milk, sugar, salt, nutmeg powder and pepper powder in it now. Beat well, so that no lumps are formed.

Microwave the sauce for 3 minutes at 100% MW power or till it thickens. (Alternatively you can make it on stove top too)

Add boiled mixed vegetables, chopped green bell peppers and chopped red bell peppers to the prepared sauce.

Add 2 tbsps grated cheese in it.

Mix black pepper powder, chilli flakes and adjust salt now. Fold nicely. Grease a baking tray, pour veggies mixture on it.

Sprinkle the remaining grated cheese and dot with butter on the top.

Preheat oven at 200 C. Bake it for 12 minutes or till cheese melts and turns golden.

Serve hot with brown bread.

In our house everyone loves okra, for this reason I have made okra a number of times in my kitchen. Microwave Spicy Okra is a quick and tasty, which is specially cooked in rich Indian spices and flavorful coriander seeds. When I saw this yummy recipe on my dear friend Meena Bhatia's space Homely Food, could not resist myself by making this wonderful North Indian delicacy in just few minutes in microwave. Try this, you would surely love it.

2 tbsps Oil

Wash and wipe okras dry. Trim the tip head and tail part of each okra. Cut the okras in desired shape.

Dry roast coriander seeds and whole dried red chillies for 2 minutes. Let them cool a little. Pound and make a coarse powder. Keep it aside.

Pour oil in microoven safe bowl, heat at high power for 30 seconds. Add ginger garlic paste, pounded masala, curry leaves, green chillies and microwave at 100% MW power for 5 minutes.

This dense moist easy chocolate cake we can make just in 2 minutes. I got this recipe from Meena's space, Homely Food. I slightly adjusted the recipe to suit our taste. I prefered to add lemon juice, as it makes cake super moist and spongy. We can prepare this cake with very few ingredients, which are easilly available in our pantry. I simply loved this cake and I was completely satisfactory with the outcome. Let us begin cooking this delicious cake.......

3 tbsps All Purpose Flour (maida)
1&1/2 tbsps Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3 tbsps Confectioner's Sugar / Powdered Sugar
3 tbsps Butter (melted)
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
A pinch of Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
3 tbsps Milk (at room temperature)
1 tsp Lemon Juice
Few Nuts for Topping

Put 3 tbsps confection's sugar in a mixing bowl, add milk in it. Keep stirring till sugar dissolves in milk.

Sieve all purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.

Add vanilla essence, lemon juice and butter in it.

Fold nicely, so that all ingredients are incorporated well.

Grease a microoven safe bowl with little butter, arrange few nuts at the bottom of that bowl.

Pour beaten mixture on it.

Place the bowl in microoven, micro it for 2 minutes at 100 MW power. Keep it 5 minutes on standing time. Cool for 10 minutes, take out the bowl now.

Turn cake out of the bowl, yummy super moist chocolatey cake is ready now. 

I served each cake wedge with topping by a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!!!
