Banana Orange dessert

Hello folkes,
    ThnQ for your well wishes. I do not know that bloggywood friends show this much sisterhood. I find many of my folks asking about our safety. This blog and you all have become very much part of my life now.

Yesterday was a very bad day, though there was a tornado watch, I never thought it would turn to a warning. Me and my hubby hold hand in hand and just prayed to god. God answered our prayers.

Really that was terrific. Now we are safe and happy, bcoz tornado didnt not cause any loss to common wealth of Kentucky. Now you say enough of the story ;)...., so i'm stopping and presenting you the yummy and colorful dessert.

Banana-Orange Dessert:
Banana's--6 small size/ 3 medium size (Ripe and Sweet banana's should be prefered)
Orange juice-1cup (160ml)
Butter--1/2 slice
Brown Sugar/ Grated Jaggery-1cup (160ml)
Dry fruits- walnut, Almonds, Cashew nut (all together 1/2 cup)
Elachi/ Cardamom powder-1/2ts (optional)


  1. Peel out bananas and make them into medium size slices and keep aside.
  2. Take a deep bottom vessel and melt butter then, add dry nuts and saute until they turn into golden brown.
  3. Add Orange juice to the melted butter and boil this mixture under medium flame for about 5min.
  4. Now, add Brown sugar/ jaggery and mix well. Boil this mixture until the consistency of the mixture turns medium thick.
  5. Add Banana and mix throughly. Cook this mixture for about 10min in simmer. 
  6. Finally finish it by garnishing with cardamom powder (optional )...I didn't use it as I don't want to loose the aroma of orange in my dessert.

Kids will love it.....we enjoyed this dish.....hope you all like it... :)

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

Morning while talking  to my hubby, I was adding water into over night fermented Idli batter, while talking I didn't realize how much water I'm adding. Few more water drops spoiled my whole batter. Consistency now is thin. I left it that way in refrigerator. I can make utappam but I want Idli, friends any ideas to repair it?

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)
Dry active Yeast-1tbsp

Add dry active yeast to the warm milk (the milk should be lukewarm i.e., when you insert your finger it should not hurt you), close with lid and keep aside for15min during which the yeast becomes active. Now take a bowl and add self rising flour, salt and sugar. Mix well. Break open egg in a s…

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
