Maple Syrup Cake Balls / Maple Syrup Cake Paniyaram / GoIndiaOrganic Review

After my review on Chia seeds from GoIndiaOrganic for plattershare's Associate program, posting an interesting snack for kids using Maple Syrup. According to Wikipedia, Maple syrup is a syrup made from xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple or black maple trees. Maple syrup is often eaten with pancakes, french toast, waffles etc. In addition, this can also be substituted with honey while preparing grilled meat or chicken recipes. The one which i received for review from GoindiaOrganic is Coombs Family Farms's Organic Maple Syrup. It's a grade A dark coloured syrup with a robust taste.
The first taste of this syrup flashed out my memories of hongkong and seychelles. It tasted exactly the same with perfect level of sweetness and richness . This product has a superior quality with light and clear texture. Received this maple bottle without any damage and really appreciate the packaging of the product.The taste of the maple syrup is also not overbearing which can also be used in both cooking and baking purpose. Using this yummy ingredient, tried kids friendly snack Cake balls / Cake paniyaram which was a super hit among family members. The snack tasted heavenly when I dunked the balls in maple syrup.

Maple syrup cake balls is a easy and tasty snack prepared using maple syrup which is used as sweetener along with a tablespoon of brown syrup. According to the given quantity, this has a mild sweet taste, so adjust the quantity of maple syrup or brown sugar to one's taste bud.

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 ;)

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.
