My Zomato Journey : Link
Onesta,translates to ‘honest’ or ‘fair’ in Italian and I would say the food and the prices greatly agree with this name.
A small quaint little restaurant located in Koramangala,the place is known for their breads,pizzas and desserts,and that pretty much defines all the have on their menu.
I am a true believer in the phrase,”Good Bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods”.A bite into the soft and buttery breads here at Onesta supports this phrase thoroughly.
The have a combination of different veg and non-veg pizzas,they also serve a banana chocolate pizza to top it all off.Their bite size desserts are adorable and some of them simply melt in your mouth.Absolutely loved the Walnut Tart and will definitely give it a try sometime soon,but first stop,my experimentation with bread making.
Their pizzas are priced at 350 for unlimited veg and 450 for non veg,the individual pizzas are priced at approx.150.Although I must warn you,the service here is not up to the mark.
What I loved most about this place is the quality of the bread and ooh the smell of freshly baked bread is just something different altogether.
This inspired to me to try out these freshly baked,soft dinner rolls in the vicinity of mi casa(my home) on one rainy day and let me tell you the smell of the rain and these warm dinner rolls dipped in an quick salsa,divinee.
SOFT DINNER ROLLS
I learnt to make this roll at one of the baking classes I attended,although as careful as I am,I’ve managed to lose the recipe.So I found an easy recipe online that I changed a bit that gives you amazing results,who knew making bread at home could be this easy and ooh the smell,you’ll have to experience it yourself.
You could create a warm environment for the yeast to work it’s magic by keeping heated water in a bowl in the oven and leaving your dough closed in this warm and moisture rich environment,the yeast just works beautifully.
It’s very important that you knead your dough well before proofing.
Cookie Man(Forum Mall,Bangalore)
All the way from Australia!
A place exclusively dedicated to gourmet cookies,they’ve also ventured into ice creams lately.The tantalizing smell of freshly baked cookies never fails to leave your tongue tingling for a bite of these crispy delights.Located on the ground floor of the Forum Mall,they have a batch that’s being freshly baked every time you lay eyes on this little store.
With a variety of different options to choose from,my favorites being the Brandy Snaps-I absolutely love it,these tiny little crackling beauties,they also have a cream filled version,but I prefer the plain crunchy one.I also love the Honey-Oat Cookies and their shortbread cookies are simply delightful.
Priced at close to Rs.12/- per cookies,I wouldn’t say it’s cheap considering that you can buy a whole packet of cookies for that price here in India.So here’s an idea,why not drop in at the grocer’s and rush home to bake your own batch of healthy cookies.
Crispy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies-Recipe
How Many?-Makes close to 30 cookies(based on size),you could also make humongous cookies like the one available at Subway.
I found this recipe on food.com and tweaked it considering that the first time I made a batch,it turned out to be too sweet and with a little more butter than required.The raisins was a little too much and gave out a slightly burnt taste when baked.
Leave the cookies on a cooling rack once done for that added crunchiness.
Store the cookies in a mason jar or an airtight dabba and enjoy with your evening chaiii 🙂
