Baked Pineapple Slices

Simple and easy snack, which has a beautiful flop story behind this.... ;) yeah tried making "Pineapple upside down cake" for the first time a few weeks back and messed up with my baking time... The Cake was not that good as I expected but my hubby enjoyed all the baked pineapples in that.... I am not a big fan of pineapple but loved the baked ones.. So next day I tried these baked pineapples with the leftover pineapples..... Really very tasty n delicious.. Now these baked pineapples have became part of our weekly menu!!!
Friends, If you have a fine recipe for a Pineapple upside down cake, pls text your url here....I am planning to try again :) Thanks in advance:)

Few googled things about Demerara Sugar :

Demerara is a light brown, partially refined sugar. Unlike brown sugar, which has the added molasses flavor, Demerara has a natural caramel-like flavor that hasn’t been refined out. This lends warm caramel notes to whatever you add the sugar. Also, Demerara sugar is also referred to as Turbinado sugar in many markets, which has more to do with how the sugar is processed in turbines, than where it originates.
To make demerara sugar, sugar producers press sugar cane and steam the juice of the first pressing to form thick cane syrup. The cane syrup is allowed to dehydrate, leaving behind large golden brown crystals of sugar. Demerara sugar is not refined, so it has a rich, creamy, molasses-like flavor which enhances baked goods. The large grains also remain crunchy through cooking, which makes demerara sugar a great choice of sprinkled topping on scones and similar dishes which might otherwise have a uniform texture.Although demerara makes an excellent textural addition to recipes, it should not substitute for certain sugars. Recipes which call for confectioner's or caster sugar should not be made with demerara, since the sugar will have a negative impact on the end texture.

Ingredients :

  • 10 Pineapple slices
  • 1/2 Cup Demerara light brown sugar

Method :
  • Place an aluminium foil in a baking tray.
  • Sprinkle the light brown sugar.
  • Place the pineapple slices on the tray.
  • Bake it for 6 mins in 170 degree celcius.
  • Then turn the pineapple other side and bake it for another 6 minutes.
  • Serve warm with Ice-cream...

Enjoy this baked pineapple slices with Ice - cream :)

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

Ingredients :

1/2 Kg Sankara Fish / Red Snapper Fish, Cleaned and Washed2 Big Onions, Finely chopped2 Medium sized Tomatoes, Finely Chopped3 Green chillies, sliced

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
