Sweet and delicious banana appam or banana paddu, a super easy dish for festivals

Banana is my favourite fruit to cook with. You can make so many dishes with it. Every part of the banana plant is edible and in fact we cook with most parts of banana/plantain plant. Ripe banana is such a boon, kids and adults alike like this fruit and the dishes made that are made with it. Banana appam or banana paddu is a traditional favourite at home and we make this for breakfast and for festivals.
The best part of banana appam is it can be made instantly. No waiting long hours for fermentation or no need of kneading any dough. All you need is a paddu/appam pan and when it heating, making the batter. Banana appam or banana paddu is made with whole wheat flour which is mixed with jaggery, ripe bananas and cardamom for flavouring. ... “Banana Appam | Banana Paddu | Baalehannina Gundupongala”

Smoothies are the answer to busy mornings. Sometimes I quickly rustle up a smoothie and make a quick breakfast. And that’s breakfast served for the day. Apple banana oats smoothie commonly features on that list. I always have a stock of organic bananas and apples at home and never run out of them.
Fresh apples along with ripe bananas and some oats to spike the goodness. Nice and simple! You end up with a delicious smoothie and you will end up wanting more of this good stuff. Here I have used some organic granola instead of plain oats but oats should be enough. ... “Apple Banana Oats Smoothie | Smoothie Recipes”

A clever way to feed fruits to your kids is by finding innovative ways to disguise them. Kids love sandwiches, so why not incorporate fruits and make fruit sandwich. Delicious and fun to eat finger food, fruit sandwich.
Make them for breakfast or for an after school snack. Fruit sandwich can even be sent in the tiffin. And why only kids, even adults can enjoy a piece or two or three of these fruit sandwich.
They are easy to put together and liked by everyone. I usually add a squeeze of honey to moisten and sweeten the fruit sandwich. I have also smeared some homemade orange marmalade for extra fun. You can pretty much use any fruit which does not get soggy, banana, apple, kiwi, chikku, sliced orange, grapes etc. ... “Fruit Sandwich | Sandwich Recipes | Snack Recipes”

Bananas are such a versatile fruit. It pairs up so well with so many dishes. Fruit salads, smoothies, milkshakes, cakes, brownies, I pretty much use bananas for everything. This time, banana in the form of traditional dosas for breakfast or for a snack. Soaked rice ground with mashed bananas result in a sweet and soft baalehannina dosa.
These are fun to eat for everyone and the elaichi added to these dosas make them very flavourful. But making dosas means the need to make sides like chutneys. Good news, these dosas do not require any side dishes at all. Baalehannina dosa taste good with just a small piece of mango pickle (maavina midi especially) or a just a little ghee. ... “Baalehannina Dosa | Banana Dosa | Dosa Recipes”

A bowl of cut fruits seems boring and tasteless. But fresh fruits are good for you, they are rich in fibre and nutrients. But once in a while how about enriching your bowl of fruits by adding some sweetened cream. Especially when guests are over and you want to make something quickly but still special. Fruits and cream is the answer 🙂
You can use any kind of fresh ripe fruits to make your own version of fruits and cream. Infact the best way to serve this and make it look fancy is by presenting a fruits and cream buffet. Assorted bowls of fruits cut up or sliced. Then beside it lay out a big bowl of beaten, thickened luscious sweetened cream to pour on top. ... “Fruits and Cream | Creamy fruit salad | Dessert Recipes”

Fruit salads are always fun to eat. The choices are endless. Fancy fruit salads are too pretentious though, I think. Cutting fruits in different ways is an art of course. Bit of a faff to eat it all up later. Our good old traditional ways of eating fruits are the best. This baalehannu rasayana or simple banana fruit salad is one such salad.
This baalehannu rasayana of course has bananas, along with freshly grated coconut, grated jaggery, pounded elaichi, honey, edible camphor and gasa gase (poppy seeds). All of these amalgamate so well together, baalehannu rasayana becomes a magic salad to eat. ... “Baalehannu Rasayana | Banana Rasayana”
