    EVENT: SHHH COOKING SECRETLY THEME: PANCAKES What are Pancakes? Pancakes are flat, often thin or slightly thick cakes made in a frying pan or griddle using a a batter. Can be either sweet or savory. Traditionally, the batter is made with flour, egg, butter and milk. However, these days there are so many variations of pancakes. Though the description has the word cake, in reality pancakes are one of the oldest forms of bread known to mankind. Each country has its own kind of pancake. For some the batter may be more or less the same with a few changes or in some countries the ingredients may be totally different from the more famous American pancakes we know. Take for example Indonesian pancakes which are…

    EVENT:FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME:#172 INTERNATIONAL FEAST When it comes to choosing themes for FoodieMonday/Bloghop, the task can be a little difficult as we try to make it a bit challenging and yet feasible for all, with members living in different parts of the world and availability of ingredients. For quite sometime our themes were more or less based on Indian cooking. So to give that a rest and to make something different this week, I challenged the members to identify a country beginning with the first letter of their name and then cook a dish from that country. By this theme hoping that we’ll get a variety of different dishes from different parts of the world and hence the theme name #InternationalFeast. For me the choices were…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS  – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 15 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper”    Today hubby took me out for lunch to a Chinese Restaurant which is at what all Kenyans know as Lighthouse.

This is one place that no body leaves Mombasa without visiting. As you enter the famous Mama Ngina Drive as the road is called, from…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 4 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper.”    Today for breakfast is D for Dutch Baby Pancakes. Before we go to the recipe, let me assure you it has nothing to do with the country Netherlands or the Dutch. These pancakes, also called German pancakes, A Bismarck or even Dutch puffs were made first by Victor Manca in his cafe in Seattle, North America. His daughter named them Dutch Baby Pancakes where perhaps her pronunciation of Deutsch sounded more like Dutch. The confusion now is whether they originate from USA or Germany. Either way, its my contribution for an International Breakfast…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 2 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Before I venture into today’s recipe, I would like to show off a bit of the azure blue skies and sea that lines the east coast of Africa. We in Mombasa are so lucky to have the beautiful Indian Ocean. Hubby and I spent the Easter holiday at the Bamburi Beach and every day it was a delight to walk on the beach. Though at time of the year the beach is strewn with seaweeds, believe me when I tell you that its a sign of a healthy sea eco system. When the tides…

    The Holiday State    February is when Shhh Cooking Secretly group (started by Priya of Priya’s Versatile Recipes) had a virtual tour of Goa. Its been over 30 years since I’ve visited Goa. I remember when we were passing the town centre, there was a huge crowd of people. We asked the taxi driver what was going on and he replied “koi naya actor ki shooting chal rahi hai, aap ko dekhna hai?” he asked. We asked if he knew the actor and he said no so we didn’t stop to watch. Who was the new actor? None other than Shakrukh Khan shooting for the movie Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa!   I remember we were staying at some hotel in town and would go to the…

  • Hoppers (Sri Lankan pancake)#BreadBakers

    February 13, 2018mayurisjikoni

    Today is Pancake DayTheme : Pancakes      Imagine a whole day dedicated to pancakes. Most people love pancakes. When I say pancakes there’s such a huge variety out there that its unbelievable. Right from fermented batter to quick batters. I could eat pancakes everyday, but have to control myself because of all the butter and honey or maple syrup. Pancakes without butter taste dry. However, what I’ve made for this theme, hoppers can be eaten without any guilt as they are gluten free and hardly have any sugar in it.    For Christians Shrove Tuesday marks the last day before Lent. Lent is the 40 day period of fasting before Easter. Usually ingredients like sugar, fat, flour and eggs had to be used up before…
