Banana Rings | Monsoon Special | Shravan Special | Tea Time Snacks | Dairy Free | Step Wise Tutorial


DSC_4177-001
Hi All!!
It’s been about two years now that I’m off a full time job. At times I do feel that my monetary contribution to the family is very less as compared to my husband, who works really hard to run this family but when I see that I’m able to feed the family with a variety of food, take care of house hold chores, paying all the bills and many more things which are not even noticed, all those negative thoughts are thrown out of the mind. And the most important contribution which  I feel is, that I’m able to connect with the kid, give him time.
My younger kid who has just entered his teens is a lonely kid these days, with no company for him in the society we live… I’m his person. The minute he enters home after the school, he wants to be with me. He has to tell me what happened in the school, which friend did what, what subjects they studied, which movie they watched during break, who ate his lunch box and the comments his friends gave for the lunch box..

Apparently the kid’s lunch box is quite popular amongst his friends and they look forward to eat his food. My kid told me that his friends say that ‘your Mom makes excellent food dude’. He feels proud of his Mom and is glad that I cook good food and give him tasty lunch box. All these small compliments that I receive, they keep me going and I thrive to try new varieties and improve my culinary skills.
With the onset of teenage, the kid has his mood swings and is turning to be a fussy eater. Unlike earlier, he is more fond of Pizza, burger, nachos and all kinds of fast food and my attempt is to sneak in nutritive food in the so called junk food.. But I’m glad he is fond of parathas, so end up making a variety of those, these days. In one of his demands he said that you don’t make anything fried these days…Hmm, I agree to that, I thought…So, today it’s been cloudy mostly and it was a  perfect weather to eat fried. Every time it has rained, I’ve been mentioning to S that it’s perfect weather to make fritters. Finally, today I made a fritter, the recipe of which has been adapted from a book called Indian Home style Cooking by Sushma KK. Again, it’s a rarely seen book these days, which again, I had picked at Reliance Time Out, Gurgaon. The pictures are not so great in the book but the recipes are..
This particular recipe is again without any ginger, garlic or onion. Perfect for Chaturmaas. It can be good tea time snack, a good starter for parties and even for lunch box too (sometimes)..
