Most of the time I used to end up my ripe plantain making halwa or fritters or just roasted plantain ghee fry. Then currently, I started making plantain pancakes for my little one as its the best healthy delicious snack. The addition of oats and wheat flour makes the dish nutritious and perfect.  She prefer this delight soon after coming from school and wont forget to appreciate its taste ;) She simply loves it.


1 Ripe Plantain.

1 Egg.

1/2 Cup Oats.

1/4 Cup Maida or Wheat flour.

1 Cup or a bit less Milk.(depends on thickness)

1/2 tsp of Soda powder.

Sugar as per needed.

Pinch of Salt.


Pinch of Vanilla essence.


Peel plantain, slice and drop them into the blender followed by the rest of the ingredients.

Bled for a min and transfer them into a bowl. Leave the mixture for about half an hour.

Heat 1 tsp of butter on a griddle. Once the butter is hot, pour the batter into pancakes shapes.

Cook until the top layer looks fairly dry with little bubbles on it. Flip and cook on other side.

Serve hot on plate with dollop of butter or honey :)

Happy to make my 200th post. I am really so excited and happy to share with u all my moment of joy. My heartfelt and sincere thanks to my family, my relatives, blogger friends and to my facebook friends who has supported me alot with their positive feedback. With appreciation and comments from all you guys, I could possibility continue my blogging world till today. Once again a big Thanks to all for your love and support.

On this pleasant day, I wanted to prepare some sweet dish, something out of my fav fruit ''PINEAPPLE'' and thats '' PINEAPPLE HALWA''. Very simple, lip smacking  recipe with limited ingredients. Its the blend of pineapple puree mixed up with khoya. Too much of a good thing can be delicious, you will discover when u have a bite of yummy halwa along with the nuts and kismish.


2 Cups Pineapple puree.

3/4  Cup Sugar. ( Depending on the sweetness of pineapple, u can adjust the amount of sugar)

1/2 Cup Ghee.

1/2 Cup Khoya.

Yellow colour, ( Optional )

Dry fruits as per needed. ( I use almonds and kishmis)


Heat 3 tbsp of ghee in a pan. Drop in pineapple puree and fry on medium heat for 10 min. Add sugar, khoya and stir well making sure it does not stick to the bottom of the pan. When sugar is well mixed, add remaining ghee and stir continuously well on medium heat until the halwa starts to leave the sides of the pan. Transfer the halwa on a greased plate and decor with ur fav dry fruits. Serve hot :)
