Quick Indian Recipes for the Working Moms

Okay! So you are a working mom and you are finding it difficult to cook those delicious recipes at home..

At the same time, you also want you family to have tasty food that they demand for every now and then.

What is the solution?

I am a work at home mom and don’t face similar problems, thanks to the flexible working hours and my online business which gives me the option to do that. But until about 3 year back, I too was a work at home mom and used to be in a similar situation that you are in currently, if you are a working mom.

While I clearly don’t have a solution to your problems, there were some workarounds that I used to do in order for me to manage both. And probably that is what I want to suggest to you as well.

Quick Indian Recipes

Indian recipes are extremely time consuming but what I learnt over a period of time that I have been cooking is that, the same recipes can be cooked faster as well with a little workaround. This is what prompted me to experiment on most of these recipes. And these experiments turned out to be success more often than not.

Take for example, Chole masala. I prepare the basic masala and keep it in the fridge on a weekend. Then I will take it and cook it on maybe a Monday or, a Tuesday.

Similarly for Bhature, I will knead the dough and add a little curd to it. In about 30 minutes, my dough is ready to make Bhatures.

These are just some of the examples. There are many more such quicker solutions in almost all the recipes and these work really well.

That’s why I call all my recipes – quick indian recipes.

I really enjoy this blog at because most of the recipes there are similar to what I used to do – quicker and customized versions. If you are a fan of Sanjeev Kapoor’s Khana Khazana, you will find similar recipes there as well.

Try out your own quicker versions of indian recipes and comment and let me know about your experiments.. and it will be fun sharing..

How to make atte ka halwa recipe

atte ka halwa

Atte ka halwa or wheat flour halwa is an easy sweet recipe which can be prepared at any occasions and at any time since it hardly takes time. Whenever I don’t find any sweets to have after lunch or dinner , I prefer making an instant atte ka halwa as a dessert. So this recipe is good for those who like having sweets after lunch or dinner.

I always remember my school days whenever I make atte ka halwa . It reminds me of my birthday, when my mom used to make this atte ka halwa or, instant halwa as a cake on that special occasion. I was very fond of this recipe.

Apart from the fact that it’s an easy recipe , it is healthy too. But if you are a kind of a health conscious person then you can use less ghee to make it a little more healthier recipe.

Babies who are yet to teeth can be fed atte ka halwa made with a little less ghee since adding more ghee can create colic problems.
