Wow looks very nice Vrinda! Though I havent had these till now I can see that these are perfectly baked :) Feel like making these now but my hubby doesnt have a sweet tooth, rather, he prefers spicy/savoury snacks! Hence I'll have to eat 3/4th of what I make! Therefore I have saved your bookmarked desserts for a special occasion :)

Thanks for the comments Vrinda... It was not pes
thoran... It is "peas thoran" prepared from peas.

Regarding its popularity, I do not know much, it might be called different according to locations.

I am a new bee... I have heard people in Alleppy say that they prepared cheeni and meen curry whereas those in Ernakulam, that they prepared kappa and meen curry...

See the difference...
I will someday write the story and mistakes of "maladu" to clear the problems people still make in Kerala...

Happy weekend and happy friendship days.
:D
