Healthy Fruit & Nut cake (egg less)

Hi Ladies !!!!!!

Every body seems busy with Diwali cleaning, shopping etc. etc.  After Dusshera hullabaloo, now its time for festival of lights, Diwali.

Delhi is decked up with colorful lights.Roads bustling with heavy traffic. People carrying gifts, sweets for the loved ones. You can hear the sound of firecrackers even though annoying, but still an integral part of Diwali celebrations.

What with namakparas, sweets, gujiyas everywhere I decided to make something sweet, but healthy for my kids. This is a Fruit and nut cake which people make during Christmas, but I decided to give it a try anyways. I got the recipe from the net  and made some variations to it. The first time, the cake turned out to be a bit pasty but second time I got it right ( that's what my kids said). They liked it very much so I believe the changes have clicked and gone well.


Maida - 1 cup
oats - 3/4 cup
Muiselli - 3/4 cup
Fresh fruits - 1 cup finely chopped
(I used banana,apple and kiwi)
Dry fruits - 1 cup
Soda bicarb - 1 tsp
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Oil - 1/2 cup 
Mixed fruit juice - 1 cup ( mix more if the batter is too thick)
Sugar - 1 cup
Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp or more according to your taste
Rum - 2 tbsp (optional)
Nutmeg powder - 1/2 tsp

Mix oil and sugar. After that fold in the dry stuff and then add the juice. Lastly add the fruits. Grease 10" - 11" mould properly and pour in the mixture. Bake it for 50-60 min at 180 C Pre-H oven.

Note - Since this is a fruit and nut cake it is going to be a dense cake and as I have used fresh fruits, instead of dried ones it will be more moist. Serve it warm preferably with ice-cream.

Have fun and happy eating !!!!

Crochet handy purse/pouch

Hi ........

How are you ??? I hope you all  are busy with your respective hobby projects. 

Here in Delhi, the sun has lost its sunshine, and is replaced by a foggy / dusty layer which is giving the city a gloomy look. Winter has started to seep in slowly especially the morning and evenings.I am still suffering from Puja hangover. Doing nothing and lazing around has become part of me.. There are so many things going on in my mind, but they are not taking a definite shape. So many incomplete projects are lying there but even after trying so hard I am not able to finish them. Yeah I know this is a very lame  excuse but honestly I feel my crafty indulgence have taken a backseat and I am happy doing nothing and cribbing about not being able to do so. 

This small crochet pouch which I had started long before Puja,  has been in the pipeline for quite some time now and after much ado I was able to complete it today.This is a handy pouch made for keeping makeup items like kajal, lipstick, etc or I can simply use it as a money purse. I have used silk threads for these -  pink and black. For the design pls click here

Even though I had clicked more pics of the same, but due to some computer problem I am not able to upload them properly. I have been trying fr an hour now, but due to my limited IT knowledge I have failed miserably. I will try reloading them tomorrow and update my post, till then you guys will have to do with one pic only. Extremely soooorrry for the same.

Thanks for visiting my page.......

Bye and good night !!!!
