When it comes to nutrition, banana stands right there; up on the top. We had two banana bunches simultaneously ripening this week and Aarina baked a delicious and healthy banana bread loaf. Made of organic home ground flours like all our other breads, this one though had the special touch of our home grown bananas too. So what is the best accompaniment with it ? - I could be had just like that- although a sinful spread of butter after toasting makes it even more scrumptious.

3 new flavours on my plate

Aarina experimented with three new breads this week. Breads that can be had without accompaniments. I enjoyed the flavours, but we felt the breads need a bit of working upon for the texture.
The dark one is a locavore bead encompassing three of Goa's quintessential products. Ragi / finger millet (locally called nachni), Cashew nuts and Coconut palm jaggery.
The second one was some thing I would like to call the 'germ of life'- made from flax seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame and chia seeds, I loved the way the seeds crunched at every bite.
The third one was a banana, coconut bread- another bead that has the potential to be a locavore. Moira bananas and Benaulim Coconuts, Goa has its moments.
Hoping to enrich your palette soon.

The 5 flavours

What a Sunday- we had orders for five different flavours. Every bread has its own quirks and baking them in pairs requires quite a lot of planning- Aarina did a great job with that.
The five flavours we baked were
Honey Coconut n Banana gluten free bread
Dry fruit Gluten free bread
Herbs and Cheeese gluten free bread
Multi grain gluten free bread
Herbs gluten free bread.
A few that we will be making soon are Cinnamon and Raisin bread- a favorite of mine and a Cheese and Spice bread.
