Crunchy Munchy Roasted Gram – Quick and Easy Munch / Snack

Standard

I hope the name looks funny – “Crunchy Munchy Roasted Gram”, since this snack was prepared by my hubby, during his bachelor days 😝, most commonly during the lazy times or with no pocket money, this would be their hunger food for sudden cravings with little job, easily available and less expensive ingredients. Recently when he was chatting about his good olden days in Bangalore more than 15 years ago, this resulted in the discussion of this recipe 😊.

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #176 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.

Jack Fruit Pancake Balls

Standard

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…
