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.

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.
