Chocolate Banana Cake Recipe

Hello everyone!! It's been a while since I posted anything in the blog. Today I am sharing the delicious chocolate banana cake that combines the sweet flavor of ripe bananas with chocolate. Making something with ripe bananas on weekends is my weekly routine since nobody at home likes to eat ripe bananas. Usually, I make unniyappam or whole wheat banana muffins or banana bread, but after trying this recipe, I am making this frequently as we all love this chocolate banana flavor.

Kerala Egg Roast Recipe | Egg Roast | Chef Pillai Kerala Egg Roast Recipe

I spent my free time scrolling food pages in Instagram and some of the Kerala based food pages are so addictive. One such page is Chef Pillai and I love all his dishes. His dishes remind me of food at my maternal grand mothers house and I always drool over his egg roast which he pairs with Kerala parotta or Idiyappam. Recently, I am making it quiet often at home and hence thought of sharing it here.

Zucchini Corn Fritters Recipe | Vegetable Fritters

Wishing you all a very happy new year 2022. May the new year brings much happiness, peace and prosperity, and the world will be a safe place again. Today I am sharing a simple fritter recipe which I got from a local supermarket magazine. The original recipe uses halloumi along with corn and zucchini. I didn't have it in hand and I substituted it with grated cheese. It tasted so delicious and I love the addition of spring onion. It can be whipped super quickly for an evening snack.

Walnut Chutney Recipe | Walnut Coconut Chutney

Idli and dosa are staple food in any south Indian house. Also, it would be amazing if we can make different side dish each time. I learned about this Walnut Chutney from Malathy's Instagram feed about two years back. From then this is one of the common chutney I make at home. To be honest, walnut is one my least favorite nuts for eating it as raw. So, I always try to include it in my baking or cooking as this is the easiest way to consume this nutritious nut. I have already compiled 15+ different chutney recipes for easy reference and if you make any of this chutney, please send a message in my Instagram page.

Badhusha Recipe | Balushahi | Badusha | Diwali Special 2021

Happy Diwali to all my readers in advance!! The most interesting part of being a food blogger is to celebrate each and every festival, as food is an important part of any celebration, whether it is religious or not. I was planning to post at least one new recipe for this Diwali and I am here today with this amazing recipe. I tried making it last weekend and it turned out so delicious. However, I was not satisfied with the final look and also wanted to tweak the recipe a little bit before sharing it here. This weekend I attempted it again, the outcome was as per my expectation and I am here with the recipe. If you are interested for other Diwali recipes, please visit this page where I have compiled together 80+ Diwali sweets and savory snacks.

Orange Poppy Seed Cake Recipe

Hello everyone!! I am back to my little happy space after a 6 month break. For me, personally there was a lot going on over the last few months and blogging took a back seat. I am back to full time job after 5 year career break. Between the pandemic, a new job, working from home, home schooling and some family circumstances, it just took its toll on me both mentally and emotionally. Most of the days I found myself tired and any sort of productivity outside of work hours and regular chores went out of the window. However, over the last few weekends I wanted to get back to blogging. I am not here for any sorts of revenue, I do this because it makes me happy. I might not be active like before, however I will try to do some posts over the weekend.
Last weekend I got fresh oranges from a farm and wanted to make use of it in some recipe. I tried this cake and the pictures didn't turn out as per my expectation since I overbaked the cake and the top was browned a bit more. Today, the oranges were still fresh and I made it again. It is one of the best tea cakes that I made recently and the flavor was so good. Do try this recipe and share me the feedback.
