Nuts, grains, dried fruits, seeds, and many other healthy options are available as toppings. However, when it comes to the batter, the multi-purpose flour should ideally be replaced with either whole wheat flour, multi grain flour, or oatmeal flour for a healthier experience. 

For a healthy banana and nuts muffin, take some mashed bananas add honey, egg, oil and mix it all together. Put some whole wheat flour in the mixture along with baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Fold it all together and put the mixture in our Ceramic Casserole. Bake it at 180 degrees for 22 minutes. Once done, carefully take the Casserole out using an oven mitt and top the muffin with your favorite nuts. We recommend using Walnuts.

Dhokla only seems to be difficult to cook until you start cooking it. It is super simple, light, and super healthy. Just grease your Ceramic Casserole with a few drops of oil and start cooking. 

Take some gram flour and add some water to make a paste out of the mixture. Make sure that you’re whisking it nicely enough for it lose all the lumps. Add some lemon juice, salt, and curd in the batter along with some green chilies and ginger paste. Mix it all together.

Get your pressure cooker ready with 3 cups of water in it and let it boil.  

Add some fruit salt to the batter, mix it, and pour the mixture in your greased Casserole. Keep a stand inside the pressure cooker, and place the Casserole on it.  

Put the pressure cooker’s lid on without the whistle and let it cook for 20 minutes. Use a fork to check if its ready or not. If the batter sticks to the fork, it means that the Dhokla needs more time inside the pressure cooker.

For tempering, take a small pan and add oil, asafetida, mustard seeds, and green chilies in it. Now add some water and sugar. Cook it until it comes to a boil.
