It has been a long time since I have contributed to guest posts. The last one I did was more than a year ago. So when I received an email from Kalyani, asking if I could do a guest post for her blog, I was obviously excited. I have mentioned before that doing a guest post literally feels like going with a dabba of home made food to the host’s house. 🙂 Kalyani had only one request, that the recipe would be a forgotten family recipe. I had a few ideas running up my head. But then, Malabar food is usually non-vegetarian and most of our snacks somehow have eggs sneaked into it. After brainstorming myself and digging into my deep memory recesses, finally I ended up making this Pazham Vaatiyathu aka Malabar style caramelized plantains.
The recipe is so simple that I was worried if Kalyani would like the post. I was so relieved when she wrote back to me that she loved the recipe and the post. It is sometimes intriguing how a super simple recipe with hardly any ingredients can become an integral part of your nostalgia. 🙂 To read more about the memories behind this simple dish and the recipes, do hop onto her page… Please do drop in your comments and opinions too… 🙂
