Crispy Phenori

Last week I was in Bangalore to attend a cake decorating workshop and within a short time its a week already . I had halted in my Papa’s sister Shalini akka’s house . The hospitality I received from each one of them was simply touching .  Shalini akka  is a  great cook and both us have similar interest like jotting down the recipe’s from the cookery shows ,shopping and what not  … It is because of her daughter in law Sandhya I started watching “Oggarane Dabbi ‘ a cookery show in Zee Kannada channel which I tried several recipes and shared here in the space . 

            I have already posted ‘Phenori ‘ recipe long back . This is the second recipe in the space and is the  recipe of my dear  Shalini Akka I got to taste during my  recent stay . Ofcourse I had tasted several times earlier . We all liked it so much I had to share the recipe in the space . Shalini akka’s recipe measurement was eye measurement .

  1. Congrats, your new place looks nice. I was initially wondering about your farewell announcement (just saw on the right hand side of sushma’s blog.)so rushed out here. I do not have much experience cooking sea food, your blog is the place I visit whenever I need fish recipes. I have pinned all of them in pinterest for easy reference.
