Unniyappam is a popular snack item of Kerala. It is usually made of ground rice, jaggery, banana and coconut bits. I haven’t been a big fan of Unniyappams till I got to taste one that my MIL made. I couldn’t stop at one. One thing I noticed was that her Unniyappams didn’t have banana. As usual, she willingly shared the recipe with me and now, It’s my turn to share the recipe with you all :) Continue Reading »

Mango Ice Cream

Mango Ice cream

Few years back Ice cream used to be a standard dessert at home. The recipe I followed back then had ingredients like GMS etc. Once we moved to some remote location, where such ingredients were unheard of, I stopped making. The urge to make ice cream also died down with it. Recently I came across a post fom my friend Shilpa who whipped up amazing ice cream with just 3 ingredients. The best part was it didn’t have any emulsifiers. Having made a note of it, I was just waiting for the right time. More then making it, I was eager to see the texture of it after freezing. When I served it to my boys, J was enquiring if it was store bought ? Woohooo !! I was thanking Shilpa a thousand times for this wonderful recipe. Continue Reading »
