I am in Bengalooru right now and am thoroughly enjoying the festive season out here!!!!! I am posting a few pictures of Malleshwaram Sampige rd- 8th cross, on the eve of the festival.

Most people nowadays go in for environment friendly Ganeshas with no chemail paints!!! We got the same one at our house too :)

Last but not the least, a picture of Gowri-Ganesha at my home.....

I have for you the recipe of Kayi Kadubu this time. Kayi kadubu is a traditial sweet dish of malnad regions of Karnataka. Kayi kadubu is steam cooked and uses no ghee/oil.... Hence it is healthy and easily digestable. It is usually prepared for festivals like Nagarapanchami and Ganesh-Chouti. Here goes the recipe.... Enjoi!

PS: Please excuse the poor quality of my Kadubu picture...... I was in such a hurry that I didn't have time to even make the right settings on my camera. Will capture better pictures from the next time, I promise! :)))


1 cup Rice
1/2 cup Coconut, grated
1 cup Jaggery, powdered
1 tsp Elaichi powder

  1. Soak the rice overnight in enough water. Drain out the water thoroughly and powder it in a blender. The powder should be VERY fine.
  2. Boil 1.5 cups of water in a kadai. To this, add the rice powder and stir continuously to form a single dumpling.
  3. Remove from stove and knead well, like chapati dough.
  4. Pull out small balls and roll them into chapati like circles.
  5. Place about 2 tsps of filling in the centre and fold the rice chapati. Seal the ends with the help of some water.
  6. Place the kadubu prepared above on a plantain leaf and steam cook for about 7-9 mins.

  1. Mix jaggery and coconut in a kadai and place on stove on low heat.
  2. Stir continuously until the jaggery melts and blends well with the grated coconut. You can adjust the quantity of jaggery according to your taste.
  3. Add elaichi powder and remove from stove.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
