Meet me I am Monu Teena. Thank you so much my Haffa, darlingoO babes for inviting me for a guest post at your place. Feeling like such an honor given to me. As I have already mentioned in my last Post she is a very close and best friend of mine. Few days ago she did a guest post for me Shahi tukray. In Return today i am going to share a guest post for her. Thanks a bunch again for giving me space. Love you my dear ~ Well today guys, i am going to come up with a simple Muffin Recipe along with some Black raisins. You can have it with your tea, easily baked and ready to serve with in 20 to 30 minutes. If your guests are coming in a very short time. The only thing you have to do is to prepare these muffins, serve your tea with these simplest muffins. What I did I had these along with some Hot Coffee. It turned out too moist and delicious. I must say you should try the recipe. The different thing I have done with the muffins I used the both Oil + Butter. The recipe experiment turned out good. Leaving the softness & moist texture to my muffins. I don't know there may be many recipes with the use of both of Oil and Butter. But it was the new experiment for me at least. You can use any dried or fruit nuts, But I like the black raisins most. So that's why I went for this combo. So the recipe makes about 10 to 11 muffins. Enough for 6 to 8 members; With out wasting any of your time lets move to the recipe ingredients along with the steps and the procedure to be followed:

Perfect Beef Steaks

Meat, Snacks, Beef, Beef Steaks, Fried Vegetables, marinated beef, loin, ribs, steaks, salads, grill, bake, pan fry steaks, Steak frites, Popular recipe steak, Best steak recipe



A beef steak is a flat cut of piece usually grilled, pan fried, baked or broiled. The tender cuts from the loin & ribs are comparatively cooked more rapidly, using dry heat & they are served as whole. Less tender cuts are cooked by moist heat & by marinating. They are typically served with fried chips, fried tomato & fried mushrooms or other vegetables. Special knives are provided to eat them. In France the steak n french fries combo is known as Steak-frites. 

One of my favorite meals is the beef steaks from the grill. But most of us simply don't have grills at home like me :( But there is no need to get sad! Yes! There is no need of grill and u can make a perfect steaks indoors without grill and simply on frying pan!! If u r craving for that exemplary taste of outdoor beef steaks, the flavor of the juicy & crispy steak, peppered crust, just get ready to have themmm!! Here is the perfect, easy & to make a steak indoors on a frying pan. Add a loaf of bread, salad, some fried vegetables, fries or baked potatoes & enjoy the yummacious meal!! No grill required! Here goes my favorite recipe (which is easier than grilling, honestlyyy!! :P) :

Home Made Bread Crumbs

Wondering how to use the leftover, or few days old bread? Its just soo simple n easy!! Make bread crumbs :) Bread crumbs are dry bread that has been grated and finely ground. It can be made with the crust or whole bread can also be used. They can although be made by fresh bread too :)

In ready made bread crumbs, they may use emulsifiers, colors or treatment agents (which I usually avoid as nothing beats home made). Bread crumbs can be used to coat snacks, like kebabs or coat chicken or fish while frying to give it a crispier taste. I usually make large amount of bread crumbs every several months. Half kg of bread will give almost 3 cups of bread crumbs.

Here is how to make bread crumbs at home. Its so simple, that I feel odd explaining it to u, but still :P

Bread & Buns, bread crumbs, Home Made, Snacks, leftover bread



Ingredients:

Leftover Bread slices/Crust
Salt - Pinch

Procedure:

-First of all cut the crusts of the bread if u wish to use the crusts only. Or cut the bread slices into small cubes if u r using whole bread, because it will give a more even result. I have used the leftover crusts of the sandwiches.

Next place them in a bowl/plate and dry them in microwave oven for 2-3 minutes.

-Store the crumbs in an air tight container & refrigerate.

Baking, Cake, Cakes & Frostings, Chocolate, Chocolate brownies, cocoa powder, cream, eggs, Flour, sprinkles, Desserts & Sweets, Festivals, christmas


Chocolate brownie is a flat, baked, rich, moist and incredibly delicious, bar/square shaped dessert which I love to bake. Brownies come in different varieties. It is a cross between a cake and a cookie. Depending on their density, they are either fudgy or cakey. They can be topped with nuts, cream, chocolate, chocolate chips, ice cream etc. This was one of the best chocolate brownies I’ve ever made, with accurate quantity of sweetness and had a powerful flavor of chocolate. The timing is really tricky while u r planning to bake a chocolate brownie. Always remember to use contents at room temperature and not to over-bake it. This might result in a dry & messy brownie. Follow the following instructions word to word and you will end baking a perfect brownie.It is best for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries and festivals like christmas etc.
To bake a brownie at home is not a difficult task! Here is an easy recipe. Don't hesitate to try :)

Bread & Buns, Breakfast, Paratha, chapati, Flat Bread,

They say breakfast should be the heaviest meal of the day, giving u a boost of energy at the very start of a day. If u wanna follow these nutritionists “Paratha” is the best thing to have in the morning.  Fried Chapatis or flat bread called Paratha in Urdu, is an important part of traditional South Asian breakfast. It can be made of wheat flour / white flour or mixture of both. You can have it with any side dish u want, or with simple omelette, tea/ Pickle. So if u want any change from normal routine try this!! :) Traditionally it is made from ghee, but oil can also be used. Here is the recipe.
