Hi Gattina,
saw your blog from Archana's SPICYANA, liked it, and the recipe for "Caramel deep-fried banana" liked it a lot, so tried the recipe from Archana's and that was it, the "Chinese Banana Toffee".
Your blog is so good and the pictures are marvellous. Keep up the nice work.
Thanks for sharing with us all your wonderful recipes.

lakshmi, you're welcome. I also love the egg curry you made, very tempting!

Angie, oh I'm really flattered! I haven't baked anything recently as you "feed" my eyes very well!
