Baking has become the new pastime during lockdown. We didn't know there's a baker in all of us until we spent days together trying all kinds of cakes and dessert recipes. Since, baking flours are flying off the shelves of grocery stores, we thought of saving some flour for our kitchen stock, and dug out these desert recipes that can be tried without using any kind of flour. So, use your leftover maida, sooji and atta for cooking and not baking.
