Little Round Bundles of Joy :)... And A Very Very Happy Onam

Recipe: Unni Appam (A Kerala Savoury)

Now, this little,soft, sweet, brown ball doesn't need any introduction to any Keralite across the globe.... I am sure !!




Always loved them, especially the ones that my Amma makes and also the ones we get at the temples as ‘prasadam’ .
These brown savoury balls, never fail to bring with them some fond memories.....they have always shared a major screen presence all through my childhood or maybe let me say, my pre-marriage days.
Amma used to make these so often that I hardly realised their greatness, until of course , I got married and moved out.

Traditional, Tasty and Healthy


Recipe: Vazha Koombu/Poovu Thoran (Banana Blossom stir fry)

Did you know that, there is no part of a banana tree that goes unused?? The fruits, of course, we all know, then there is the banana blossom, banana stem and roots.... I don't know how many are aware, but all of these are edible and tasty as well, and then yes, there are the leaves which we South Indians use, to eat from. Quite a tree , don't you agree!!

A Perfect Dessert

 Recipe: Peach-Bavarian Cream Charlotte


This post had been lingering in my draft for quite a few months now and I had been refraining from publishing it because of the poor pictures I had taken.
I had made this for a party and so had to rush with the photography before my guests arrived.
The pictures may not look so great but trust me, the charlotte did !!
Actually, everybody said that this was one of the best of my creations :)

A Breakfast Bite...


Recipe: Buttermilk Pancake




Hello everybody, back from a tiny vacation and with a tiny recipe :)

Ok, I agree, just a simple pancake recipe and well, nothing much to brag about in a blog. I know the food blogs are crowded with this recipe and mine is just one more addition to the list :)
