Shankarpali is a sweet and crispy, deep-fried, diamond-shaped, Indian cookie. Since they are bite-sized they make a great snack. In fact, these are really hard to resist once you start munching on them.
Continuing with my series of traditional Goan Christmas sweets here on the blog, let’s talk about these diamond-shaped cookies! Shankapali is yet another treat that’s prepared during festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali and Christmas. It also happens to be one of the things that are served in the Kuswar i.e Goan Christmas sweet platter distributed to family and friends. But really, these can be prepared any time of the year, for they are perfect to snack on if you aren’t counting calories 😀
Vegetable mayonnaise sandwiches make for a quick snack or appetizer or even a yummy accompaniment during tea time. Although they aren’t the healthiest of sandwiches, it’s nice to indulge on some once in a blue moon or serve them during potlucks, parties or even perfect to be made for an occasional brunch. Delicious, creamy and tangy mayo sandwiches, who can resist these?
Indian Bread potato rolls, a crispy and crunchy snack that’s perfect to satiate those small, mid-afternoon hunger pangs.. Oh ! and these are a healthier version since they are air-fried.
Bread rolls are a much loved Indian snack. Spiced potato mixture is stuffed in a moist bread slice, given an oblong shape and deep fried. Ahh … delicious indeed! We all know anything DEEP FRIED is not very healthy ! Nonetheless, these make for a lovely snack to go along with your cuppa, or if you are feeling indulgent, probably you could enjoy these for breakfast on a lazy weekend. Continue reading →
These homemade Bourbon biscuits are delicious and so easy to make. So much better than store-bought ones!
Hi guys ! Hope everyone is doing great! First off let me start with some exciting news happening on my home front ! My daughter Katelyn was born on the 24th of February , and hence I’ve been away from blogging for a while. Y’all know the drill of having a newborn around if you’ve been there, done that 😀 This post and the ones that will follow in the coming weeks are all scheduled, as I was sure I wouldn’t have much time at hand to blog.
And I also know taking a break only makes it harder to return. Experienced this in June last year and it took me 2 months to get back to blogging again. So this time I did a little homework to avoid that scenario 🙂 I will surely catch up on all your posts sooner, meanwhile I’m enjoying this precious phase for the second time in my life.
Vermicelli Idli’s! Who would have thought of making idli’s with vermicelli? May be it’s common, but I haven’t come across these before. So I when I first saw this on my FB foodie group, posted by Shobana ji who blogs at Cooking with Shobana, I knew I had to try this out immediately! Like most things that I dilly dally, in terms of trying out several of the recipes that interest me, having bookmarked like a million ( okay not million, but you get it, don’t you? ) I tried these soon enough!
