Hi All....

many of us in this group know the nutritive values of atta over maida... and I am such a major atta freak that I substitute Atta even in cakes and muffins recipes.

My family loves my cakes more because of the taste , surely  it isnt as fluffy as maida but taste is amazing .....

has anyone atta cakes?

Hi,

I totally agree with you. I used to bake cakes with wheat, dates, walnuts and banana and called it dry fruits cake!

BTW you might find this link useful too :

Hi Shobha

Thanks for the link. Try using Jaggery instead of Sugar ... it tastes great. I havent used bananas much... I shall try now.

 

Thanks,

i,

          u can try making dhosa out of atta ...... ya i mean same as dhosa . make a paste of atta add salt n haldi powder n ajvine or its paste (optioal) but good for kids stomatch. hing powder n i pinch of chilli powder if needed . then on tawa spread it like a dhosha . many times it takes time to make it i mean to learn it. slowly  u n  use to it then . i mean u know na atta doesnot comeof fast. spread some oil or ghee n turn it but remember cook it well or else ........ it may give a stomach ache.

 normally children like them . u may also add vegetables or something wich ur kids like like uttapa.

I hope u like it . do let me know if u try .
