" Merry Christmas To All My Readers!!! "


This is the Christmas cake I baked for this Christmas...Hope you all enjoyed watching it.. :P
An extremely buttery cake as it contains lot of butter along with brown sugar,both dried and fresh Cherries,nuts and so on.

Now it's quite some time since I have baked something new.I find cooking interesting only to experiment new things.Otherwise,I must confess,day to day cooking is always boring for me,but I have to do it,since I try and stick to healthy diet.

If you believe me,I never plan a recipe. When I feel to bake,I randomly  shop some ingredients;which ever  I find interesting in the store.Then using them,how to make a new variety?This will be my next thought.
I rely on my intuition mostly..

Thiruvathira Festival (the remnant of a rich heritage)

Image
18th Dec 2013,Today is Thiruvathira Festival  in Kerala for Hindus .Women celebrate this day with great joy and respect as it is the birth day of Lord Shiva.
The significance and grandeur of Thiruvathira,though mostly can be seen only in the days gone by. Even today,these rituals are  important  to those who wants to follow tradition.And it is our duty to pass these information to next generation;as these festivals promote unity,love and compassion.
On the day,women of Kerala worship Lord Shiva for marital bliss.Unmarried girls too indulge in all the rituals with prayers for getting an ideal husband like Lord Shiva.
Today, people can not keep faith in these stories,world has changed to an extend that we are not able to trust each other even !
This was a day of celebration exclusively  for women folk of Kerala. Today,women are independent and so may not really understand the importance of this festival.
But,I have heard stories from my mother ,how she in her childhood,along with other…

Unniyappam recipe

Image
Today I am going to share the secret of traditional Kerala Snack 'Unni Appam' or 'Karol Appam'. Unni appam resembles small pancakes.
You can find the recipe  anywhere on Internet and many might have  succeeded in making these delicious and healthy dumplings.

But this is my recipe;after desperately  trying to bring back the taste of Unni appam that my Grand Mother (we call her Ammamma) used to make for us,children.She didn't know how to show her love for us,but with the taste of her special snacks, her love was conveyed to us.

I am sure it is impossible to recreate the same taste,since that special "kaipunyam" ended with her demise.
(Kaipunyam is a Malayalam word which  means 'having gifted hands')


So let's  try to bring back that taste... nostalgic to many of you ,today..
