Eggless whole meal baking
We had been thinking for a while to make an all whole-meal cake. Hence, kept working on a recipe which uses atta instead of maida or plain flour. Also, many people do not have an access to self raising flour yet want to make soft cakes. We always want kids to eat healthy.in our childhood our options as well as eating outside was limited. This was a blessing in disguise. We hardly ate food outside. Most of the time neighbors kept sharing recipes and there was always so much variety at home. I am blessed to have a childhood where we were pampered by aunts with food food and more food! Living outside has its own disadvantages, smaller friend circle and thus you have to make everything from scratch.
Thus I try to share with as many friends as possible.
Too much of plain flour is bad for health. Most kids suffer from constipation due to market based food. Hence the need for healthy baking!
