A Lovely Morning Breakfast ! My wish

It’s not every day that we get to start our day sitting in a cafe sipping some hot beverage along with a lip-smacking breakfast meal and yes chatting with our friends too!

Recently I decided to fulfil my wish to start off the day with breakfast at a cafe nearby and that is none other than Starbucks!

This post is not from the point of view of reviewing the cafe or the food, it is about spending some time; to slow down the fast-paced life we have and relax for sometime. To start with I decided to order a Chilli Cheese Toast and seeing this the health freak angel in me told me to balance it off with a cup of Green Tea instead of Hot Chocolate 😛 so here comes the Green Tea with my Chilly Cheese Toast!

(I generally eat early breakfast but today had a late one)

Since it was morning time, it wasn’t crowded at all and this made it even better for me to sit back & continue the gabfest with my friends.

I would like to end this post by saying that, it may not be possible for us to plan a vacation very often considering the busy schedule we all have and in order to compensate for this it’s nice to catch up with your family & friends and relax !! Oh yes and start to fulfil small wishes from your wishlist!

Golden Sweet !

We all love to snack on something, be it during the tea time or surfing the internet. With the monsoons here it’s time to make something crispy, yummy and healthy.

Today I am going to prepare a recipe which I call“The Golden Sweet“; technically it is a South Indian sweet dish from Kerala called Pazham Pori (where Pazham means Plantain & Pori refers to frying)

Before I start with the recipe, let me tell you a few health benefits of Plantain that we will be using for this dish.

Health benefits of eating Plantains

  • Good source of Potassium & Magnesium
  • Rich in Fiber, helps aid digestion
  • Good for controlling blood sugar level

So let’s get started !!


1.Nenthra Pazham/Etha Pazham/Ripe Plantain(you can find these in the Supermarkets or the South Indian grocery stores)

2.Rice Flour

3.Refined Flour

4.Salt to taste

5.Turmeric Powder


7.Oil for frying

How to prepare the Golden Sweet/Pazham Pori

Step 1: Add 1 medium size cup of refined flour and 1/2 a cup of rice flour in a bowl,mix it well

Step 2 :Add a pinch of turmeric powder & salt to taste

Step 3: Add some water to mix the batter well, it should look like this

Step 3 : Heat oil in a Karahi (vessel used for deep frying)

Step 4 : Cut the bananas into slices as shown below (if you wish,you can cut them in different shapes as well)

Step 5: Dip the banana slices in the batter and put them for frying in the karahi

Step 6: keep turning the slices ,so that they get fried from all the sides and once they turn golden brown you can remove them. Place these golden sweets on a plate with a layer of tissue paper, to soak the excess oil.

Step 7: Serve them hot ! and enjoy the Golden Sweet or shall I say Pazham Pori

The best thing about this dish is that it is easy to make, the combination of crispy cover & plantain is just perfect.
