Foodporn fest begins on my blog!

foodie

While the word porn has always been taken in hushed tones amidst sniggers amongst high-on-hormones people of all ages, over time the word foodporn has earned a respect and space of its own. Whether it is its hashtag that is strewn generously across all kinds of social media or its extensive use in enticing a huge weak-hearted, thick-skinned and hungry in the belly fan-following, foodporn is here to stay.

For the likes of enterprising homecooks like me, this is gold. We can have our entire household gush about the yummy fare we toss up for them, but who doesn’t crave for some added adulation? One can be a gourmand or a glutton but eating good food alone is no less than a crime!

Ever since I’ve started posting pictures of my home food on Instagram, I’ve received increasingly positive feedback from one and all. Taking inspiration from it I’ve decided to share pictures and recipes of some of my most well-received posts till date and/or (with a little push from you, pretty please) create something new and innovative for all of you. Hope you’re with me in this!

Today’s recipe is simple, fast and easy to prepare with a short list of ingredients yet filling, healthy and a good start for the day. You can have it at hi-tea or pack it for your kid’s tiffin with ketchup or mint chutney.

Ingredients:

Raw banana (boiled, peeled and mashed) – 4

Onions (finely chopped) – half cup

Ginger and garlic paste – 1 teaspoon

Green chillies (finely chopped) – 4 to 5 (optional)

Lemon juice – 1 teaspoon

Garam masala or freshly ground masala (dry roasted cumin seeds, coriander seeds, cloves, black pepper and fenugreek seeds) – 1 teaspoon

Coriander leaves – half cup

Salt to taste

For garnish – Tamarind chutney, salted yoghurt, sev, coriander leaves and chaat masala

Procedure:

1. Take a bowl and add mashed raw banana, onions, ginger-garlic paste, green chillies and coriander leaves to it.

2. Mix well.

3. Now add garam masala, lemon juice and salt to it and mix well.

4. Keep the mixture aside for 5 minutes. Moist your palms with water and taking equal quantities of the mixture in them make triangular tikkis.

5. Shallow or deep fry the tikkis as per your choice.

6. Serve in a beautiful plate and garnish.

Hope you liked it. Do try it and let me know how it turned out.
