Childhood Memories- Vettu cake / Malabar tea cake

This photo was taken when Amma made this cake for Riaan for the first time..The cake tasted even more delicious since she added a secret ingredient for her grandson….love!

​This this something you ll find in all the chayakadas(teashops) in Kerala mostly Norther or malabar kerala.

Since childhood i have seen my ammamma ( grandma) make this for tea.

Since we were in Muscat i longed for this cake. Amma(mother) was not good in this cake making when i was young..now my mom is an expert. my mothers two sisters sreeja aunty and vimala muthamma (eldest aunty) will prepare this in batches when we come to india. we used to come down during the rainy seasons to Kerala. I love this cake and tea with rain…its a tradition in our family now to make this cake during the rains. If its raining and you go to any of my moms siblings home …u ll be greeted with hot tea and hot cakes.
If u come to visit Kerala…must try this!



500 grams all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon salt

2 large eggs

250 grams confectioners sugar

Approximately 1/2 cup water

Oil for frying


In a bowl,whisk together flour,baking soda,salt and ground cardamom

In another bowl, beat together eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the flour mix along with just enough water to form a tight / stiff dough. Cover the dough with a damp towel and set aside for 1 hour. Divide the dough into 4. Roll them out to form a cylinder. Flatten it out and cut out 1 inch squares or triangles.

Heat oil  on medium heat and fry them till they are golden brown. Drain on paper towels, cool and store in an airtight container. It will stay fresh for 2-3 weeks!

Try this at home. I am sure the kids will love it!


Cloth Diapering In Style 

Riaan is wearing superbottoms cloth diaper in indian motifs

Frankly,I was not a big fan of cloth diapering.  I found it too cumbersome and boring…the plain white or colored cloth didn’t seem to impress me at all. Hence I preffered using the disposable diapers since my son was born.I am not the cloth diapering kinda momma at all.My MIL is a big fan of cloth diapering and my son usually remains naked below when she is around..

Superbottoms Cloth Diapers caught my eyes when I saw a fellow bloggers post, in one of the social medias…it looked so cool on the baby and looked so comfy too.

So just for the different style and for one or two photos of my son in it I wanted to purchase it. So i ordered Superbottoms cloth diaper online and within two days i received the item.

The very moment i got my hands on them i loved them. The designs were super cute ,colorful ,bright and so cheerful.The material felt so soft .So i knew this product isnt going to get shelved after the photo session.

Since that day we  broke the non cloth diapering parenting thing and became cloth diapering fans. Riaan spends his adventurous days and long nights in Superbottom cloth diapers. My son literally lives in them now.
