Fancy Egg Toast

Children will love these fancy toasts.An easy to make breakfast that will take only a few minutes of your time in the kitchen.My daughter who is very fussy about eating eggs,enjoyed eating this when I had prepared this for breakfast .Now it's  surprising as she keeps reminding me to make this whenever she feels like she  wants to eat breakfast in style.Nowadays making her eat her breakfast isn't a hassle anymore.
Apply a little butter in a flat pan .Place a  slice of bread and make a hole in the centre. 

Break an egg into the hole and cook for a minute .You can enjoy the bulls eye toast with a dash of salt and pepper.

Or cook either side till golden

Serve hot with a dollop of butter or cream cheese/tomato ketchup.Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Banana Fritters In Jaggery Syrup

The bananas were getting ripened too quickly.And the children were not  keen or  hungry  to eat them immediately. However in a day, they will all get over ripened  and will be an excuse for the children to refuse eating the fruits.Since I didnt want the fruits to go waste, I decided to make a sweet dessert out of the bananas.This will keep longer in the refrigerator.

The recipe for banana fritters
Sieve 1 1/2  cups of flour.Mash 5 well ripened  bananas and mix them together..Add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of bicarbonate soda.Add  a little water .( the mixture should be of very thick consistency).Leave aside for 15-20 minutes.Drop spoonfuls into hot oil and fry till golden brown.
 fry till golden brown
