Hello folks!

How is everyone? How are your holiday preps coming along? Today I have another classic Goan sweet to share with you’ll.  ‘Doce’ and ‘grão’ means ‘sweet’ and ‘grain/bean’ in Portuguese. This is almost like a fudge, made of chana dal ( split Bengal gram) , freshly grated coconut, sugar and flavored with cardamom. It is quite a tedious and time consuming dessert, but the results are so worth it! I promise! Continue reading →

Hello folks!

I’m back with another healthy, vegan & kid-friendly snack recipe – Soy and spinach croquettes! I had this large box of organic spinach that I got from Costco, I used it at least three times and yet I had about 2 cups remaining. I thought I would experiment with it in the form of croquettes.

It made for a very interesting combination, they were moist and delicate on the inside, delicious from all the seasonings with a crisp exterior, basically everything you wish for in a deep fried snack 😀 Continue reading →
