Cheesy Savoury Muffins


Cheesy savoury muffins. 

A very easy and delicious recipe to amaze your kids. 

You don’t have to use refined flour/maida in it. Give a healthy treat to your family and friends. 

You can make it with flour too but I don’t want to use refined flour/maida in my recipes. Because it has only chemicals and trans fat and no nutrients. Its refined flour/maida from which fiber is been eliminated and bleached to give white colour with benzoyl peroxide which has side effects and many disadvantages. In other words its a slow poison. It spikes up your sugar levels because it has very high glycemic index.

I have used semolina or suji/rawa in it. Low calorie semolina is made from hard variety durum wheat which is digested slowly and prevent you from overeating. And its good for diabetic and perfect for weight loss. In other words, you will be able to lose weight in a shorter period of time and maintain body weight. Semolina is increases your chances of shedding more fat because it digested very slowly. Semolina is energy booster too. It keeps your body charged throughout the day. 

Semolina contains phosphorus, zinc and magnesium which keeps your nervous system healthy. Semolina is good for your bone health too. It increases bone density and keeps them healthy and strong. Semolina contains protein which nourishes your skin and muscles.

An easy to make and yummy muffins. You can store it in refrigerator for 3 – 4 days. Just microwave for one minute before serving.

 I have made it without any vegetables first time and planning to add some grated veg and chopped coriander leaves next time. But my son said its too yummy don’t add anything 😂

So here is the simple basic recipe. You can add chopped coriander leaves, green chilli, corn, green peas, bell peppers and grated veggies of your choice. Vegetables will make it more healthy. You can increase or decrease the amount of cheese according to your taste. 


Semolina or suji/rawa – 1 cup 

Pizza sauce – 1 tablespoon 

Oregano – 2 teaspoon 

Ginger garlic paste – 1 teaspoon 

Grated cheese – 4 tablespoon + for sprinkle 

Thick curd – 3/4 cup 

Milk – 1/2 cup 

Vinegar – 1 teaspoon 

Salt – 1/2 teaspoon or to taste 

Baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon 

Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon

Black pepper powder – 1 teaspoon 


In a large bowl mix semolina and thick curd. Mix and add salt, grated cheese, pizza sauce, black pepper powder, ginger garlic paste, baking powder, soda, oregano and vinegar. At last add milk slowly. Make a smooth lump free batter. 

You can add corn, green peas, chopped bell peppers, green chilli, cilantro and grated vegetables of your choice. Add cheese according to your taste. Sometimes I make it with vegetables and less cheese. 

Preheat the oven at 180°.

Grease the muffin moulds with butter or oil. 

Pour the batter in the moulds. Fill the moulds half. Sprinkle grated cheese and oregano. Bake at 180° for 20 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. 

Serve hot with chilli and tomato sauce. 

Enjoy the cheesy taste. 

Happy baking 🙂
