So, do you remember me saying about a special recipe that we tried along with Samosas? This is it!!! It’s a meat lover’s treat! When I gave it to Jose the first time, he thought it was meat quiche :) Actually, it’s very similar to a crustless quiche.
Jose’s quiche reference got me thinking… The two recipes (this one and quiche) come from completely different cultures and use two different cooking styles, but somehow ends up having similar taste. Yet again, I’m amused at how food can bring together people by connecting them with familiar tastes!
Pola is a traditional Malabar dish, which is similar to cake, but made without an oven. It can be sweet or savoury. You can make a wide variety of Pola using eggs, bread, banana, apples, meat etc; I remember bookmarking a Kaipola (banana pola) recipe long time ago, but never got to try it.
This is a very simple recipe and absolutely easy to put together. If you have some left over meat dish, it’s even easier to make. We thoroughly enjoyed this dish and I’m sure I’ll be making it again and again and again…you got the point right? You can have it for brunch or as a snack or for lunch like we did ;)
