She added, “Let’s eat healthy & stay safe, while we maintain necessary protocols, this festive season. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas! (sic).”
Baked Kalkals –
1 cup wheat flour
5 tbsp coconut sugar
Take 1 cup of wheat flour in a bowl and add 5 tbsp coconut sugar to it. Mix well until it turns into dough.
Take the small bits of dough, place it on a fork, spread it and cut it from one end to the other. Bake them in the oven and serve them as hot snacks.
Eating baked kalkals provides energy and also helps in maintaining healthy colon along with bone health.
Fruit cake –
¾ cup of sooji (semolina)
1 tsp ginger powder
1 cup mix dry fruits
Mixed fruit juice
Take ¾ cup of sooji or semolina in a bowl and add 1 tsp of ginger powder and mix it well. Then take 1 cup of mix dry fruits, soak them in mixed fruit juice and add the dry sooji-ginger powder mixture to it as well and mix all the contents together.
Take a spatula and empty the contents into a square baking bowl and place it in an oven for heating. Cut the cake pieces and drizzle freshly-made jam sauce over them.
