DIY–Tissue Box as storage box

This is my first DIY attempt. I had come across this idea on Pinterest.

I have  a small dustbin near the sink to throw left over food from plate or the peels or waste from cutting veggies, cooking etc. I line this bin with the plastic covers I save from my trip to the veggie market. 

Banana Paniyaram

This paniyaram is a sweet paniyaram made with mashed bananas. If you are wondering what to do with over ripe bananas, then this is a perfect recipe.

If planning to make this for kids, you can use ghee. You could also make them as pancakes instead of paniyaram.


My DS started having this when he was 10 months old.

TIP - Removing stains from vessels

You don't have to muscle hard to remove burnt stains from your pots/pans. Just follow this tip and you are good to go :)

I have tried this to remove burnt marks from stainless steel utensils, remove the water marks from brass vessel. Works like a charm. You can also do the same to clean the inside of your pressure cooker.

Steel idly cooker free from really black burnt stains and now shining new

Brass vessel which had water stains and nickel like deposits now clean like new one

To the pot/pan add about 2tbsp citric acid crystals. Fill water for about 3 inches and boil for about 10 minutes. Drain the water and clean with your usual dishwashing liquid/soap. You'll see that the stains have vanished and the vessel is shining like new one :)

Wish all my readers a very happy and a prosperous new year. Also wish all of you had a great pongal/sankranti.

Sorry for not having any posts for few months. Had been busy with the little one. Since he has started crawling faster and trying to stand, most of my time goes off running behind him. Have become a watchdog now :) seeing if he has put anything into his mouth. Wonder how these tiny tots find even the minutest thing on the floor though we try to keep it spic and span.

I hope I will be more regular this year with posting recipes. Stay tuned for some good recipes this year.
