Sundried Tomato and Cheese Muffins





A trip is always fun. A trip by road is even more fun. A trip by road in your car is even more fun. A trip by road in your car with your good friends is even more fun than that. But the best of them all is a trip by road in your car with your good friends and a basket full of homemade food.


We set out on this journey last month to an old Haveli in Rajasthan. S and I, along with out friends P and N. We were not sure of the roadside eateries on this route and didn’t want to stop for dinner on the way. We really wanted to get there as early as possible. I made some sweet muffins and these savoury muffins to eat along the way. With some sauce on the side, these were gone in no time.


1/8 cup Oil
1/2 cup Wheat Flour
1/4 cup Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tbsp Sugar
A pinch of Salt
1 egg
1/4 cup Milk
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme

1 tsp Paprika

1/4 tsp Chilli Flakes

1/4 cup Sundried Tomatoes, chopped

1 Onion, chopped

25g Cheddar Cheese, diced


Preheat the oven to 190 C (375 F). Place paper cases in a nine inch muffin pan.



Sift the dry ingredients and keep aside. Whisk the eggs, milk, oil and thyme. Slowly add the dry ingredients and stir gently. Add the onion, sundried tomatoes and cheese and mix together. Place a spoonful of batter in each cup.



Bake for 25 minutes. Enjoy while warm though they keep for a couple of days.

Hope you had a lovely time. From all those refernces to muffins on our chats in the past, I always think of you as the "muffin" lady. :)

And you just proved it once again with this post.
Nice flavour combo. Do you get sun-dried tomatoes there? The last time I tried to make my own., the sun disappeared for 2 days and my half dry, mouldy tomatoes went down the bin. I'm making them again this summer. :)
