Whole wheat healthy muffins...

Savory muffins serve as a perfect breakfast when you just wanna grab something on-the-go. Made with whole wheat flour this turns healthy and filling for clean eating habits. Its not that I dont make this all the time but sure a 'once in a while visitor, say once in a month' for a change from boring old breakfast styles. Serve couple of muffins with a glass of warm milk or chilled juice for a good alternative to the regular b'fast menu

I started making this a few years ago from the after-effects of a good-ole tv show. I guess I was in some kind of a baking spree those days when I used to try to bake anything and everything trying to make what not. Thinking about it now makes me giggle about how silly I was. But I should say I wasnt very silly either as there were quite a few recipes that really turned out well and have carried themselves through these years in our kitchen to be served now and then. There were also a few lot many disasters that gave me a lot of experience and quick tips to help me get better

This muffin was one among a few picked recipes that turned out good and is enjoyed in our family even now. Simple to put together and healthy to eat gives it a warm welcome for an enjoyable breakfast

Serves... 3 ppl
Serve option... Warm with a glass of cold juice

This is what u'll need....

Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tspn
Butter - 1 tbspn
Garlic - 3 cloves
Carrot - 1 small
Onion - 1 small
Min leaves 
Coriander leaves
Egg - 1 
Pepper powder - 1/4 tspn
Chilli powder - 1/4 tspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
    • Sift whole wheat flour and baking powder together couple of times. Transfer this to a working bowl
    • Spoon in 1 to 1/2 tablespoon of butter. I use 1 tbspn but you can use even a little more to make it a little more greasy
    • Grate garlic and carrots into the bowl. Chop onions finely and toss them in too 
    • Chop coriander leaves and mint leaves and add it to the bowl. Mint is not mandatory. I prefer it personally so I use a little of it whenever possible
    • Time to throw in some spices to give it a little taste. Add red chilli powder, pepper powder and salt to taste. You can use different spices depending upon your taste. I sometimes throw in oregano spice mix or sometimes green chillies. Use what you like
    • We will need a little liquid to bring everything together. For the liquid we are gonna use 1 egg.  Break in the egg into the bowl and time to mix everything
    • Mix everything well to make a thick batter or very sticky dough consistency. If you feel that 1 egg is too little and the dough turns out dry, then you can add 1 more egg
    • Pour this mixture into a muffin pan. I used a silicone muffin tray. No need to grease it. It just slides off the tray once cooked
    • Bake in a 180 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or till done
    • Once cooked, take it out of the oven and let it cool for a few seconds before it is ok to touch. When it is easy enough to handle slide out the muffins and serve them warm with ketchup or your favorite sauce

                      • Add vegetables of your choice to make it delectable
                      • No need to spray / grease the muffin tray
                      • Add cheese to a few muffins if you have little ones eating around
