CornY meal!

Today we had cornbread and eggs and mushroom bake for dinner. Something missing was soup I think. I have to try a few different combis before we can finalise this as a menu.
I did not have cornmeal, which most cornbreads will call for. I used Navadarshan aata, whole wheat flour, which is stone ground and grainy. Else you can use makai ka aata, which is the same as cornmeal. I also used a bit of cornstarch.
I have used less oil. I also did not use sugar or honey because I wanted it more like a salted bread than sweet or cake like in texture.

Eggless corn bread with whole wheat flour

1 cup boiled corn
1/2 cup oil or cream
1 cup buttermilk
Mix together and keep aside

2 cups whole wheat flour
3 large tbsps soya flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Sift all the dry ingredients together. Mix with the wet mixture. pour in a greased glass dish. microwave for 12 mins and bake for another ten mins. brush top with butter and serve with soup. I served it with homemade white butter. (That reminds me I have to post that recipe too!)

For dinner we had coornbread and veggie stew. I used almost the same recipe, though I had some cornmeal. Egg version of cornbread-
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup boiled fresh corn
salt to taste
1/2 cup oil (I used olive oil)
1 egg beaten
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk

Mix all the above with hand after sifting the dry ingredients together. Pour in a glass dish. Micro at full pwer for ten mins and bake at 180 deg for another 12. This cornbread was moist and better than the eggless version.


  1. Hi there Richa!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:
