Crepes are very thin pancakes with some fillings inside. I prefer sweet ie something prepared  with fruits and nuts most of the time :) Makesure not to add water in the batter. Instead milk is added for making the batter watery and smooth. This is a veg version so anybody would love to have it specially kids would adore. This is super healthy and filling. Fillings can be of any fruits like mangoes, bananas, strawberries, fig, apples with nuts etc etc


1 cup Maida

1 cup Milk.

3 tbsp Castor sugar

1 tsp Vanilla essence

1 tsp Melted Butter.

Pinch of Salt


2 Apples chopped

1/2 cup of dried cranberries

2 tsp Sugar.

1 tbsp Butter.


In a bowl mix flour, sugar and salt. Then add milk slowly and beat until the batter becomes smooth. Then add melted butter and vanilla essence and mix again. Refrigarate for a hour. Mean while make the fillings. Heat nonstick pan. Put 1 tbsp of butter and saute chopped apples. Sprinkle with sugar and cook for 5 to 6 min or till pieces becomes tender. Add the dried cranberries over. Transfer them into a bowl.

Heat a non stick pan.Grease with butter or cooking spray. When the pan is hot, pour a ladleful of batter and swirl the pan to coat. When the edges of crepe becomes dry and brown, flip it over and cook other side until slight brown.

Place them on a plate. Take a spoonful of apple filling and place in the center and fold them from both the sides as shown in the picture. Serve chill or hot :)

This is one of the surprising recipe for kids. No doubt they will adore it. The patterns that emerge on these eggs makes quite attractive.The marble effects is due to the breaking of membrane and the colour is due to the addition of tea powder. If you want the eggs to be extra flavourful, then you can add anise or cinnamon in boiling water. Some people add dark soya sause for deeper colour but I want to maintain the flavour of normal boiling egg, so I kept it simple adding tea powder with very mild taste.


1 Egg

1 tsp Tea powder

1 Cup Water

Pinch of Salt


Wash the egg first. Take a vessel filled with water. Put salt and place egg for boiling. Let it boil for few minutes. Now take a spoon and crack the shells as many as you can. But make sure the shell does not come out fully. Once its cracked, add tea powder and boil for a sec. Then reduce the flame for another 2 min and switch off. When its cool, gently break the shells from egg.

Serve sliced, halved or quartered.
