  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F or 170°C.
  2. Prepare the muffin tray by greasing them with some butter/oil or by lining them with muffin liners
  3. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  4. Now add mashed bananas, the egg, oil and vanilla in another bowl and whisk well. 
  5. Add the wet ingredients (egg mix) to the dry ingredients **
  6. Use a spatula to mix and fold in the ingredients until well combined
  7. Add Chocolate chips (if using) and with the help of a spatula mix until they are evenly distributed 
  8. Use a ladle or an ice cream scooper to spoon in the batter into the prepared greased or paper lined muffin pan. 
  9. Sprinkle additional chocolate chips on each muffin cup (Optional)
  10. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (See notes)
  11. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack. 
  • You can make eggless too by adding 4 tbsp yoghurt and 1 tsp baking powder along with the baking soda mentioned in the recipe.
  • If you feel the batter is very thick, you can add in about 2 tbsp of milk and mix. Do not add altogether. Add one by one and see the consistency.  
  • Use any flavorless vegetable oil. Avoid coconut and olive oil. Sunflower oil works best.
  • These muffins can be stored in freezer for unto 3 months. Wrap them tightly in aluminum foil and store. 
  • You can keep them at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days. If you can resist them and want to keep them for longer, you can store them in refrigerator for 1 week. 
  • Use very ripe or overripe bananas for this recipe. That is what will give a nice flavour and also underripe banana won't incorporate well in the batter. 
  • If you don't have choco chips, you can add cut chocolate pieces. You can completely avoid the chocolate chips and just make them as plain banana muffins. They taste great too. Add in finely chopped nuts instead of choco chip. 
  • Do not over-bake. Test if its done by inserting a toothpick into the center after 20 mins. You should bake it further only if you see wet batter on toothpick. 
  • As for all baked goods, make sure to follow the measurements to get perfect moist muffins.

Easy Sambar (without tamarind)

Sambar is a must in most south Indian families and like others even I have grown up having dosa- sambhar and chutney's. A Sambar is a lentil based vegetable stew or curry cooked with dal/lentils along with some veggies and some tamarind pulp. There are coconut based sambar as well and each region has its own sambar variation. In my house, we all prefer quick meals, but yet tasty. My mother who was a working lady would make elaborate meals only during holidays or special occasions. Rest all the meals would be quick yet very very tasty. This is one such sambar which my mom has taught me and is super quick.  This doesn't use tamarind like in a traditional sambar and gets its tangy flavour from tomatoes. Its quick, one pot sambar recipe. Lets dive in and see how its done: Ingredients: Serves 3 1/2 to 1 cup Tur Dal/ Yellow Lentils 2-3 tomatoes chopped (depending on size) 1/2 cup Veggies each of your choice cubed Turmeric powder A pinch of Asafoetida/ Hing 1/2 tsp chilli powder Salt

Home-Made Nuts Powder

Home-Made Nuts powder is something which I have been making since Jeremy was a 9 month old. Initially to introduce nuts, I used to powder each nut separately (one day each) and mix with every food. As he grew older I realized he hates whole nuts especially Almonds and Pistachios. Cashews are still ok with him provided they are salted ones. But still he wasn't consuming much. Thats when I decided to continue making the essential and important nut powder. He hates the fact that nuts or chunky powder has been added and just rejects the whole meal even though its tasty and likes it. But this fine nut powder is a winner and I add it up in almost everything on a daily basis.  So this nut powder is perfect for fussy kid like mine or if you just wanna introduce nuts to your kids diet, this is a good solution. Its pretty simple and fuss free.   The powder is suitable for babies over 8 months, but before you feed this to your baby, make sure that baby has already tried the powdered version o
