Oreo Owl Cupcake

Intensely chocolaty and moist Oreo Owl Cupcakes are the cutest way to celebrate a festival like Halloween! Or you could just make ‘em this way all the time! :)

Oreo Owl Cupcake Recipe Tutorial | Fun Halloween & Easter Treats

Oreos and Chocolate in a Cupcake can only mean that cupcake is going to be the most popular cupcake in the history of cupcakes. Am I Right or am I Right? ;)

I’m lately obsessed with finding simple tweaks that could change the way we look at food! Take this chocolate cake for example. Can you tell that this is nothing but a simple chocolate sponge cake? Doesn’t the addition of a bit of powdered sugar just take it up a notch?

A somewhat similar experiment led to the discovery of my Oreo Owl Cupcake. Bake dark chocolate cupcakes. Dip them in chocolate ganache. Break off some Oreo cookies and stick them onto the cupcake. Dip M&M / Gems / similar round candies in chocolate ganache and place them for eyes. Congratulations. You just made an Oreo Owl Cupcake – or a few dozen of them! Continue reading

Chickpea Sundal

High protein Chickpea Sundal is a south Indian offering to the salad world – complete with “dressing” and all.

Chickpea Sundal Recipe | Indian Garbanzo Bean (Chole) Salad

 

Re-posting a very, very old post today. I had somehow missed this recipe when I started Foodomania. This reminds me of my very beginning days of blogging. This recipe still is as good as it was when I made it over 3 years ago! :)

Garbanzo beans (Chickpea/ Chole). Such beautiful legumes! There isn’t a single savory dish you could make with chickpeas that I’d dislike. With their natural high protein content, garbanzo beans make for a natural choice for diet-conscious vegetarians. Here is another recipe from the southern regions of India, accentuating the deliciousness of chickpeas!

Sundal – a word that could possibly mean Salad. There are various kinds of Sundal that South Indians make. Think – as many lentils & legumes there are, twice or thrice as many (known) Sundal recipes exist! The most commonly prepared and loved Sundal though is this Chickpea Sundal.

The “dressing” is made up of my mom’s concocted spice blend and some coconuts, curry leaves & mustard seeds cooked in a little splash of oil. (Before you cringe – a little fat is GOOD for your health, okay?!) If you’ve been put off by bland bean salads before, give this one a chance and you’ll be surprised to find a new favorite. :) Continue reading
