Nendrapazham Roast / Caramelized Ripe Plantain to Share the Sweetest News Ever


Hai Guys, Hope everyone had a great weekend and are in great energy to start your week. I brought you one of my favorite, absolute favorite, all time favorite food in this world. This is not even a recipe, so simple to make, but i have to share this with you guys, because i love it so much, starting from my childhood. Whenever i see some ripe plantains lying around the first thing i want to do is THIS ONE..

I also want to share this with you because it has been my craving right now. And i have been craving for certain foods each month. During my first 3 months i have been craving for raw mangoes with some salt. Then during my 4th month i have been craving for chocolates, specially BOUNTY, i love them so much, i have emptied tons of them. And now i am craving for chocolates, sweets and this one. So this recipe is indeed special for me..
Enough with the suspense, i hope there is no suspense at this point. I always wanted to share this news with you guys long time before itself. But my sweet hubby stopped me from doing it. But now i can't resist to share this news with you all. 

Yes I AM PREGNANT. And i am in my 6th month. Just 4 more months to get the precious gift of our life. So now no more suspense, the secret is revealed. I will share all the stuff which i feel and see in my coming posts...



I was feeling a little tired before and my cooking spirit was at its low level. I hardly even went into the kitchen. Thanks to my lovely mom, hubby and family who supported me through out my first and second trimester. They all kept me go on. But slowly i am getting into the spirit, i was in my mum's place most of the days and all the post which you see here is made in her kitchen. 


OK now coming back to the recipe..Hope you will like it and let me know what you think about it.
