Fruit Samosa

Standard

Here comes a yummilicious, healthy and quick snack perfect for my #afterschoolsnack collection. Just like that thought why we don’t stuff something with fruit in samosa, as my whole family likes custard to the core, induced fruits to the custard and later stuffed it to the samosa.

I was little scary for the outcome, because my kids would kick me off if I play with the custard as they love to have it as such. But the outcome was fantastic, wonderful, beautiful, yummilicious and … Give a try, a very simple and easy snack when you have samosa patty ready and the custard ready at your refrigerator.

Jack Fruit Pancake Balls

Nowadays I feel my works getting more and more tighten, as the kids grew up with the stuffs like their home works and their naughtiness (must to mention). When both of them are back from school, these kids have a sweet tooth and want something for their snack – mainly focused on sweets or bakes.

I thought of preparing pancake with jack fruit, but my daughter asked me why don’t you prepare pancake in appe pan (kuzhipaniyaram kadai), it would be easy for me hold and eat. This resulted in the making of Jackfruit Pancake balls – an after school or back to home snack.

It was too soft and fluffy. Give a try not only for kids but also for the people from work would enjoy having this. I felt it just like munch when they move here and there all over the house. Let me share the recipe…
