Bhapa Doi is a Bengali dessert. Bhapa meaning steamed and Doi means yoghurt. My niece had tried it recently and declared it a must-have. I've followed the recipe exactly as she had given me and we truly relished it. Simple to prepare and delicious. Can also be given as one of the baby's first foods.

Time for yet another International Party. Don't I love them now. I guess you are used to my Indian versions of what I bring to the party by now. This one was tough to crack I must say. Usually taco shells are made from tortillas which are usually made from white flour or cornmeal. I've prepared the shells puri style with added nutrition from the moong. Hope everyone at the party enjoys them.

Having posted about the Banana Flower I had an overwhelming response from all of you. Sharing with you my mom's recipe though I didnt manage to acquire the exact taste. You can serve it as a side-dish for rotis, rice or parathas.

The banana tree is a wonder plant that every part of the tree is used for cooking purposes. Have you ever tried cooking the banana flower or banana blossom? Purple in colour, heart-shaped, it is commonly seen in the Indian markets where it is considered a vegetable.
