“Try some Pazham pori”, she said bringing in a plate of what looked like Hot fritters.. It had a light golden colour on it and aroma wafting along the way was divine….
I bit into it cautiously aware of how hot it was and i went “Mmmmm”.. It was sweet, but not overpoweringfly sweet, it was soft, but not mushy soft, it was yumm… All i missed was a scoop of Vanilla Ice cream, and ta da, before i knew it there was a scoop of ice cream on the table… This is what i call sinful….
It has been quite a few years, but still the memory lingers on… The last time i had these was during the houseboat ride in Coir village Resort near Allepey in Kerala, during the holiday a couple of high school girl friends took 🙂 [yes, it was yours truly travelling with her 3 BFF]
When i asked the guy at the resort how he made it, this is what he had to say…. [this is in case you dont have any friends from Kerala or Mallu land ;o) ]
