    Molten Chocolate Lava Cake is one of my favorite desserts. I thought it would be apt to post something special today, for it is the 4th anniversary of Foodomania. Yep, I officially launched this website on August 1st, 2012. In the past 4 years, I’ve been able to post 500+ recipes with step by step pictures, build a community of food lovers and see my blog grow into a mildly popular food brand. I am grateful to have found a hobby that I’m so passionate about and that lets me be creative.

    This recipe for Molten Chocolate Lava Cake is eggless – obviously – and simple. Eggs are what usually provide the molten center to the lava cakes. But with some careful substitutions in the ingredients and baking time and temperature, you can bake yourself an equally good chocolate cake with a molten center. In the recipe, I cheat by adding chocolate chips in the center to give an additional molten center. But because the end product is so tasty, I think a couple shortcuts and cheats are warranted. So, here’s how to make the eggless molten chocolate lava cake in under 15 minutes –   (more…)

    Here is a quick, fresh summer salad to spruce up your day! This sweet and spicy mango jalapeno salad is everything you’d want in a light, healthy salad – it is quick, easy, has simple flavors and tastes delicious.

    Add some grilled chicken or cooked beans to this and you’ve got a wholesome meal.  In fact, it is so versatile that it serves as an excellent topping on burgers, nachos and pizzas too (of course, after cooking).

    I personally love eating this with tortilla chips or as toppings on spicy burgers. How would you like to serve this?    (more…)

  • Milagai Podi

    A blend of lentil, chilli & spices, this Milagai podi is eaten as a condiment with many Indian dishes.

    Milagai Podi Recipe | South Indian Molaga Podi (Lentil Chilli Powder / Idli Chutney Powder) | Foodomania.com

    Milagai Podi is a spice blend made with lentils and chilli. It is mixed with oil and eaten as a condiment to various Indian dishes… typically south Indian dishes such as Idli, Dosa and more. It is even used as a dip to be eaten with chips by some people.

    Milagai (or as some people like to call it Molaga) is a Tamil word for Chili. This literally translates to chili powder. But it isn’t exactly just powdered chili. There are blends of lentils and seeds to give it additional flavor. You can make this and store it for a long time. It comes in very handly when you’re short of time and cannot make chutneys as side dishes. Just add a splash of sesame oil (or coconut oil or water) to some of the powder and you have a fabulous dip ready!

  • Paneer Burger

    Spicy Indian-inspired Paneer Burger with veggies. A favorite among veggie lovers!

    Indian Paneer Burger Recipe with step by step pictures | Learn how to make spicy paneer burgers | Veggie Burgers | Foodomania.com

    There comes a point in every Indian vegetarian’s life when he or she stops to wonder –  Is Paneer the only substitute for meat? The answer is – mostly – Yes. Most of the fabulous recipes which use meat can be suitably modified to create healthy and tasty vegetarian dishes. And instead of the meat component, Paneer is used.

    With around 18 grams of protein per 100 grams of Paneer, it is also widely accepted as an excellent protein source for vegetarians. Of course, there are many more faux meat substitutes available in the market these days. And then there is Tofu. But none of these substitutes come close to the flavor and flexibility offered by Paneer – IMO.

    I created this burger recipe with leftover paneer. After having enjoyed a rich meal of Paneer Pasanda and Naan the previous day, I was in no mood for another royal meal. I wanted something light, fresh and healthy – and most importantly – I wanted to use up all the leftover paneer and grilled veggies. This burger is as healthy as it is delicious. And it hardly takes 15-20 minutes from start to finish. If you’re looking for a nice Indian-inspired veggie burger – this is a great recipe!   (more…)
