Vegan Eggplant & Sunflower Seeds Powder Rice/Kathirikkai Podi Rice

After making two delicious kid's friendly lunch box dishes, i couldnt stop myself making an another delicious lunch box dish with a healthy twist in it. Usually i love to make eggplant rice with a special spice powder to make them more flavourful and delicious. And my today's recipe is definitely a different recipe you would have never crossed yet. I prepared this eggplant rice with a flavorsome rich spice powder using sunflower seeds along with other usual spices. I have prepared couple of breads using sunflower seeds, but never tried them in my cooking. Since i want to make a super duper twist to the usual eggplant rice, i simply opted for a spice powder which goes for Sunflower seeds. Initially i was bit skeptical to use sunflower seeds in this spice powder but seriously i want to give a try eventhough its the first time am preparing a spice powder with sunflower seeds.

Vegan 3 Seeded Spelt Bread

Its been a while, i baked bread at home, if i dont bake a weekend, everyone at home will complain that am not baking at home. And one of my recent visit to a nearby organic shop pulled me to get a packet of spelt flour. Spelt is one among the wheat varieties and its one of the ancient grains which is very much used in the place of wheat flour. Since this grain is completely healthy, they are used in many European countries like Germay , Austria where spelt loaves and rolls are widely available in bakeries. And the unripe spelt are dried and eaten as well. Beer is brewed from spelt in Bavaria and Belgium. Spelt is an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, several vitamins and many dietary minerals. Since this flour is high in protein and low in gluten lends a slightly sweet and nutty flavor to the bread.
