Hey There. How was your Christmas? Hope you all had a blast. Well I did. Spending quality time with family are the most precious moments of life. These days due to nuclear family concept kids don’t get to stay with their grandparents mostly. Hence planning small weekends where they can be together makes both kids and grandparents happy. Even if they are old they would do everything for their grandchildren. I think as parents we don’t get to spend time much with kids especially if we are working. So when parents becomes grandparents they devote all their time for grandkids.
Grandparents are the bestest friends child can have. They have lots of experience, patience, love and only good wishes for kids. They never complain instead they are always giving. Even when unwell they will hide it from everyone and smile and share tales.
I recently saw this malyalam movie ‘Oru Muthassi Gada’. I love the movie for the positive attitude and the way the story was handled. It was about a grandmother who is quarrelsome and meddlesome. How her life changes and how she takes charge of her life is the story line. It dealt with a strong message of how our grandparents or parents feel lonely and left out these days. Watch the movie whenever time permits. It is lighthearted but with a strong and clear message.
Moving on to today’s recipe. This is a quick fritter. If you have some overripe banana’s leftover (which usually is at my home) then this is the go to recipe. A very simple snack for your tea time hunger.
