Egg Stew ... Simple!

At home we prefer not to have meat or fish for breakfast, but eggs are welcome! Egg Stew is a 'quick fix' dish, provided you have instant coconut milk. On special days most of us would desire to prepare a gorgeous breakfast followed by a large spread for lunch. Preparations for lunch can indeed get quite elaborate and possibility of finding time for preparing a good breakfast is out the window. On such days, I prepare egg stew accompanied by laced appams which according to me makes my breakfast super special ;). So why not give it a try? I guarantee that you will be impressed.

Bonda { Potato / Aloo / Urulakazhanghu } !!!

Yet another popular recipe from Kerala, to add to the Tea Time snacks! During my college days, this snack had a regular show on our evening snack menu. I remember it used to be quite oily, still we had to rush in, before they were completely sold out. I have to say that the homemade version is much healthier and tastier :) and I am sure you will love them too...

Yummy Love Letter's !!!

Yet another snack from 'gods own country'. This is also a popular  tea time snack which does not require deep fry! Back in my school days amma used to prepare these for breakfast or to comfort a hungry bunch of kids returning after school ;). It was quite easy to get hold of two rolls and still manage to run off and board the  school bus on time. 
This is a pancake/crepe variety snack from Kerala with a filling of sweet grated coconut, originally called 'Elanchi', @ Kannur (my home town) we refer to them as 'Love Letter's' :)

'Elanchi' aka 'Love Letter's' !

Banana Fritters / Pazhampori / Ethakkappam :)

A much loved tea time snack truly enjoyed by all at my home! This is one of the few snacks which I learned during my early days of kitchen rendezvous. It is super easy to prep up and fry these soft tasty treats, although take caution while deep frying food items.
This snack is very popular in Kerala as the main ingredient wiz bananas are loved and available in abundance. I am quite fond of these and would always volunteer to prepare them at home. This snack has been a guaranteed hit and has shared a spot on my coffee table for some of the best moments of my life. I hope this snack finds a sweet place in your heart too!

Onion Pakoda ... my 'Feel good food'!

I brand onion pakoda as 'Feel good food'! This is a snack which I think of, when I am feeling blue or sad (homesickness counts too). On such days when all you want is just pull the duvet over your head and stay in bed all day, you need to have food that will make you feel the world is indeed a better place to live :D (pardon my exaggeration!)
For me this was a popular snack prepared at home during my childhood days and they were exactly the ones that I learned to cook first :) At home, it so became that whenever pakodas or banana fritters had to be made, amma would task me to do them! So the tradition continued, I remember I made those even when Nikhil's family came to see me for the first time before our wedding got fixed ;)
So let me share this easy-to-make onion pakoda recipe with you all.
