Banana Lassi - BHW17:

Second by Second, Minute passes
Minute by Minute, Hour passes
Hour by Hour, Day passes
Day by Day, Month passes
Month by Month, Year passes
Thus the time passes.
and as it passes it reminds me BHW every month.

Oh my god, early in the morning what happened to me writing a poem which I composed. I am really tempted today to put a post which is sourced from my sweet blogger, Sangeetha from her blog, Spicy Treats for the second time. She is that sweet to update me, stating last time as she was not well couldn't post from my blog. Thus, she will post it definitely this time. And she is really so sweet her post - Chole Mint Bhat is the first entry linked for this time Blog Hop Wednesday 17, which was recreated from my post Aloo Pudina Bhat.  Thanks a lot Sangeetha. Thanks Radhika to link both of us once again in Blog Hop Wednesday.

My dear readers, Blog Hop Wednesday (BHW) is a monthly event on Tickling Palates, which strikes me on every 1st of the month and I visit google groups to check with whom I am paired and to find out what recipe I could make and link it. This is 17th Series and its a second version of BHW.

As it is summer, I selected an instant drink this time which I love since ages, and that's the yummy Lassi. I remember those days, where mom used to take me to Sreeraj Lassi Bar, which is famous in Bangalore and I used to order for a flavored Lassi. Always my drink used to be Sweet Lassi. But now, I have started adding fruits to Lassi. Great da, they have a website now, i came to know only today.

Banana - 1 riped
Curds or Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 4 tsp (salt also can be used instead of sugar)
Raisins - few

Peel the skin from the banana
Chop the banana into pieces
Add curds, water and sugar along with banana into a blender and blend it well
Garnish with raisins, your lassi is ready -:)

Engagement Thali - Mixed Fruits Icecream

Engagement Thali - Mixed Fruits Icecream:

Impressed by Thalis shown at Blogging Marathon - 15 I came up with this Thali. As my blog was celebrating Hema's Adugemane Marathon.

Oops, mine was a love marriage so it directly went to marriage and did not have a sweet function like Engagement which is called as "Lagnapatrike" in kannada. After a bride is selected for a groom, they held this function and write the date to fix the marriage date.

Sweet, snacks would be arranged and I have made the simplest one.

This Thaali contains:

Sweet   Chandrakala 
   Mixed Fruit Icecream
  Baby aloo masala
      baby aloos cooked well, sprinkled with pepper and salt


Milk - 1/2 cup
Papaya - 3 pieces
Watermelon - 3 pieces
Banana - 1/2
Sugar Sachets - 4
Butter - 1 tsp


Mash all the fruits and mix it with milk

Add sugar and mix it well

 Melt butter and add sugar to it, to get a caramelization effect

After 6 hours it turned out to be ice

One more shot in a diff angle

Thus, my marathon ends here:

Banana Burger Sandwich

Banana Burger Sandwich:

Dear Blog Readers, 

Oops, it happened again. I had prepared a Banana Burger Sandwich on Saturday and an Apple Ice cream on sunday but due to my little sweet and naughty angel I couldn't post.

My little angel once he sees the laptop will come and sit on the keyboard and cover the display and see the desktop. As he still doesn't understand that he has to type from keyboard he does this. Generation changed pa from TV to laptop. -:)

This post is for my blogging marathon - Hema's Adugemane Marathon

I planned to do Steamed Banana Cake but after steaming it turned out to be halwa. Hence made it in the shape of burger and used it along with bread as a sandwich.

Here is the Ver 2.0:

  • Ripped Bananas - 3
  • Sugar - 75 grams
  • Milk - 50 ml
  • Baking Soda - 1 tsp
  • Baking Powder - 2 tsp
  • Vegetable Oil - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Wheat Flour - 1 cup (50 grams)

  • Mash the bananas and mix it along with milk, sugar
  • Sieve flour, baking soda and baking powder for 3 three times so that they mix well
  • Mix the sieved ingredients with bananas, milk and sugar, the result should be medium consistency
  • Keep it in a cooker for steaming for half an hour
  • Remove it out and allow it to cool for 10 minutes
  • Make them as burgers
  • Take 2 bread slices toast it with butter
  • Put the burger on top of one bread
  • Put one more bread on top of burger
  • Enjoy the feast along with cocojel to make a perfect evening snacks
@Readers: Please pass on your valuable comment.

Snacks from Banana

Let the children cut their own bananas with a plastic knife. Put these banana slices into ice cream (preferably vanilla) to make Banana Split Ice Cream.

Point out that beans are a vegetable. Make bean salad by mixing green beans and kidney beans. Top them with Italian dressing mixed with a little sugar. Serve.

1 cup plain flour
¾ cup milk
2 ripe bananas, mashed
¼ cup chopped walnuts
4 tsp. castor sugar
½ tsp. vanilla essence
¾ tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. melted butter
some butter and honey or jam to serve

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl to make a smooth batter, making sure that no lumps remain.
Heat a non-stick pan, spread about 3 to 4 tbsp. (¼ cup) of the batter to make a thick pancake.
Cook the pancake over medium heat, using a little butter to cook both sides until golden brown.
Serve hot with honey or jam.
