Shakshouka is originally a Tunisian dish, that is often mistaken for Middle Eastern food. Made with tomatoes as the basic ingredient and eggs that are poached or cooked sunny side up, this dish is also one of those that you can add anything into and it will turn out just fine.

So here’s another recipe that’s not only healthy but easy to make. And by easy I mean something that anyone and everyone can whip up.
The best part is, it’s using oats – my favourite! I happened to come across this recipe while I was going through my Facebook feed, and the moment I spotted this, I knew I had to try it. So here it is…my version of a Carrot Oatmeal Porridge. Continue reading “Carrot Oatmeal Porridge”

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, (@hungryoungwoman) you must have noticed that I’m into healthy eating lately. I’m hoping it’s not a fad though as I’ve discovered how tasty can healthy food be.
This is so easy, that you can almost do it with your eyes closed! Except you’ve got to keep it open when your baking though…okay, bad joke. It wasn’t even one…anyway, moving on. A baked egg and tomato is something anyone can whip up in almost 10 minutes. Continue reading “Baked Eggs and Tomatoes”
Okay, so I know I’m a bit late for this post. Flavor of the month’s rules state that it should be posted at the start of every month. But, oh well, rules are meant to be broken right? 😉
Since the flavor of this month is chocolate, which happens to be my favorite by the way, I decided to make Chocolate Fudge Pops.
Close to chocolate truffles, but aren’t them.
The ingredients are pretty easy and also readily available in every household.
All you need is:
Some leftover chocolate cake. You can also do with stale muffins that you don’t feel like having anymore.
Some biscuits dipped in strong coffee
2 tsps strong coffee (For taste)
Toppings of your choice. (For garnishing)
All you have to do is crush the cake/muffins and add the other ingredients to a bowl. Mix thoroughly and shape the dough into little balls with your hands.
You can also use nutty biscuits if you like to have it crunchy.
Lastly, roll your little Chocolate Fudge Pops into your favorite toppings. Some of them can be cornflakes or chopped nuts of your choice.
Get creative! I decided to use some of the toppings available at home.
Chocolate Fudge Pops are a great snack loved by adults and children alike. They are colorful, fun and even reduce wastage! The best part is, that it’s all made using ingredients at home!
Have fun creating these and enjoy! 😀
Until next time. xx
So, I’ve decided that I’m going to post a recipe of a chosen flavor on the first Saturday of every month. The flavor of this month happens to be…Eggs!
The recipe I’m going to post today, is an Indian dish. I first saw this on It’s All About Food (Check out her blog!) It is called Nargisi Kofta (Egg meatballs with gravy)
This is my first attempt on making an Indian dish, something that requires frying, cutting up stuff and well, the basic steps that go into cooking up a meal 😛
I was very happy with my attempt though. The kofta was perfect, with a layer that wasn’t too thick nor too thin. The gravy complemented them really well. Also, the koftas could be eaten separately. All in all, a wonderful dish!
- 6 Eggs (4 of them to be boiled)
- 1 small onion (chopped)
- 500 gms mutton mince ( you can use chicken too)
- 1 tsp chili pepper powder
- 1 tsp garam masala powder
- 1 garlic clove (crushed)
- 2 tsp rice flour
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- Salt to taste
- Oil for frying
- 1 large onion (finely chopped)
- 1 large tomato (chopped)
- 1 tsp oil
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tsp garam masala powder
- 2 tsp chili pepper powder (1 tsp if you do not prefer spicy food)
- Coriander to garnish
- First, boil 4 eggs in hot boiling water. After done, transfer to cold water and peel them.
- Next, add the mutton mince, one egg, chopped onion, garam masala powder, chili pepper powder, turmeric powder, crushed garlic and salt to a bowl.
- Divide the mixture into 4 even portions. With a little oil spread on your palm, take one portion and flatten the mixture. Place one boiled egg inside, and wrap the mixture around the egg to form an even coating. Remember to not make the coating too thick. Also, make sure that the egg cannot be seen beneath the mixture, try to conceal it well.
- Next, put some rice flour on a plate. This can be upto 2 tsp, more can be added later.
- Heat the oil in a pan for deep-frying.
- Beat an egg with water in a bowl and keep aside.
- Take the mince coated egg and dust with the rice flour. Make sure to cover all the sides of the egg. Then, dip it into the bowl of egg and water and put the egg (Kofta) for frying.
- Cook the kofta till golden brown. Make sure to turn it while cooking to ensure same color overall.
- Add oil in a pan, and add cumin seeds once the oil is hot. Add ginger garlic paste once the cumin seeds splatter.
- Add chopped onion and cook for 2 minutes. Then, add garam masala, chili pepper powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt and chopped tomato.
- Cook for about 5 mins, and the add half cup yogurt and a cup of water. Let the mixture cook for about 5 mins and then add koftas and further cook for about 2 mins.
- The mixture should look something like this.
- Finally, add coriander to garnish.
Tip: Since there was some leftover mixture of the kofta, I decided to make them into little balls and fry them. These can be eaten on their own and taste quite good.
Note: Koftas must be added only when you are going to serve the dish.
Happy cooking 🙂 xx
