Meen Pollichathu / Baked Fish in Banana leaf

Meen Pollichathu

This is another authentic Kerala recipe which tops my favorites list.....The first thing that comes to mind when I think of its preparation is the nice aroma of banana leaf in which the fish is wrapped...Please excuse me for using Aluminium foil instead, because of the unavailability of banana leaf here...If you are fortunate enough to get them ,please do try with banana leaf itself ....

Aval Payasam [ Beaten Rice Pudding / Poha Kheer ]

Aval Payasam

Happy Vishu to all my readers.....

Wishing  you all a very Happy and Prosperous Year ahead.

No Indian festival is complete without a dessert to go along with the long list of other delicacies......And Vishu is no exception, as there is the elaborate Sadya for lunch time....

Since today is a working day here, I've postponed the Sadya part for tomorrow, but not the dessert....So here is a simple and easy payasam recipe that I prepared today for the occasion.....

Instant Mixed Nuts Laddu....Snack on them anytime...

Mixed nuts Laddu
One day while baking almond cookies, the cookies got burnt a bit and then I got to taste those roasted almonds which I had put for topping....From then on I wanted to roast those left over  almond flakes and make something out of it....And there was some peanuts left in the pantry too....So just added all those bits and pieces and came up with this recipe for an instant and healthy snack...
