Orange Cranberry Muffins-Slurpy platter

This is the season of oranges and when you get them in abundance I believe in making the best use of it. I love eating oranges as is, cuz of how juicy they are are and it also means loading up on natural Vitamin C.

I honestly think Ornage is cranberry’s soulmate! it is its best friend. Oh! BTW, Both orange and cranberry are a potent combination to reduce heat in the body as well as prevent UTI (Urinary tract infection) respectively. So the Christmas season after the rich plum cake I thought cranberries deserve some love and should pair it up with oranges to have a happy dance.

Orange Cranberry Muffins-Slurpy platter

When I was looking at pinterest for some simple inspiration to bake this season, and especially to do with orange a lot of cranberry and orange recipes popped up. Since, I’ve made a lot of laoves in the past I thought, it was time to make some muffins. Aren’t they beautiful? Guess what? They’re made of whole wheat and I was really apprehensive that they’d be dense. Thankfully enough, they turned out to be just moist and perfect. If you are baking this for the first time and you aren’t sure about using wheat, you could definitely give it a shot with APF, but if you’ve got the hang of baking and you’re a moderate baker like me and know how to handle flours and consistency fairly well, you’re most welcome to try this.

Also, I was intending to use foxtail millet flour, but hell no, I was scared. I am determined to give it a try sooner or later.

These muffins are so festive, fluffy and packed with flavor. The orange zest and juice plus the flavours of cranberry are a match made in heaven! You could gulp it down with mulled wine and more desserts this season.

They’re so simple to make with just a few ingredients that could be your best breakfast on hurried mornings too. I used sweetened cranberries. You could use frozen or fresh depending on the availability in your region.

Besides being tangy-tart and sweet, the texture of these cranberry orange muffins are super moist and just melt in the mouth. Although I haven’t used butter in this recipe, the fluffiness is intact.

These beauties are just warm out of the oven topped with roasted pistachios and almonds. You could even glaze them with orange juice and sugar. I like to keep mine a little less sweet since the cranberries are already a little on the sweeter side. You could use brown sugar too.

Instructions
  1. To begin making the orange cranberry muffins, first sieve the whole wheat flour and keep it aside. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree Celsius (350 Degree F).
  2. In another bowl add the yogurt, sugar and whisk until it dissolves. Now add the baking soda, baking powder and whisk again till you see bubbles. At this point, add the orange zest, juice, Cointreau and oil and give it a mix.
  3. Now add the chopped cranberries to this and the wheat flour. Fold and mix everything until it resembles a pancake batter consistency. If it is thick add a tbsp of oil/ milk (at room temperature).
  4. Line the muffin pans with liners and spoon the batter into it. Top it with pistachios and almonds.
  5. Bake these muffins at 180 Degree Celsius for 20-25 minutes until they rise, and start to get a golden brown hue. You'll know they are done when a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Recipe Notes
  1. Temperatures may vary with different oven types. So keep an eye on the muffins after 15 minutes to ensure they dont burn.
  2. You can use brown sugar too instead of white sugar, but they'd look a little more darker.

Ragi Paniyaram With Dill and Onions

Ragi Paniyaram With Dill and Onions

Simple, filling, nutritious and healthy – these ragi paniyaram with dill and onions are a treat for the taste buds and are the quickest brekkie you can make for those hectic mornings. 

ID- Ragi Paniyaram with Dill and Onions - Slurpy Platter

I love millets and my diet is mainly comprised of at least one millet that I use to make my meals. Ragi, for one is great with fiber and also known to have cooling properties. Of course, not to forget the potassium and calcium that entail it 🙂 No wonder it is a staple in most households in Karnataka. It takes longer to digest, hence leaving you full and preventing you from binge eating, while also strengthening your bones.

Having said this, I’m a hardcore no-readymade-store-bought-batter kinda person who prefers to make idli/dose (dosa) batter at home, since I have a mini version of me who needs to be fed all-in-all-homemade-stuff 🙂

But, when you’re pressed for time and have those unusually lazy mornings when all you need is a quick brekkie then the last resort would be to make an instant dosa or make do with cereals. This time though I tried the ID Ragi batter, and to my surprise the paniyarams turned out to be really soft, fluffy and flavourful.

ID- Ragi Paniyaram with Dill and Onions - Slurpy Platter

The best part is that the dill and onions gave it a really nice flavour. ID batter does not use preservatives and soda either, so this was a welcome change in the breakfast menu from the usual grind.

When you have a really hectic morning and if you have to make a quick breakfast, all you need is a handful of dill leaves and an onion plus a few chillis that you need to fry and add to the batter, and pour them into paniyaram pans to get fluffy paddu that goes well with coconut chutney or chutney pudi (well, it is totally your choice as to what you want to pair it with). But, if you have a strong dislike towards dill (cuz of its overpowering flavour, which , by the way I love, You can substitute it with spinach or methi or just do with the onions). Either ways, these paniyarams are great for breakfast or even a light dinner if you prefer.

So here is a really simple recipe for dill and onion paniyaram.

PS: The batter is slightly salted and you might want to add a lil more salt if you prefer. Suggest, you try making one or two paniyarams and then adjust the salt as per your preference.
