Hello dear readers! Happy Ugadi/ Yugadi for all those who celebrating ! Today is the new year of the g.s.b Konkani’s . We call this day as “Samsaar Padva”. Today’s day we prepare  many traditional dishes.There are many other rituals too which I will share when I get to know. Technically it is my birthday too. Yes, I was born on this auspicious day. But date wise it is different. Coming back to the recipe these fritters are made with “Nendrabale kele” that is with Kerala Banana’s. Amma made this today and I shot the pictures randomly to share the recipe in the space.
