Mahanandi Selections : Aebleskiver Skillet

I often get asked via comments and email, to recommend cooking utensils and products. I am extremely particular about the products that I buy for my kitchen. I wasn’t sure my taste is your cup of coffee, so I was reluctant all these years. Now, I have decided to take up the challenge. Mahanandi Selections, the shopping suggestions series is going to be a new one on Mahanandi and features products that I have at my home or would like to have in my kitchen.

I hope you find this new series interesting and useful.

  6. I use this to make Thai Kanom Krok. Have not tried your recipes yet for it, but surely will do so!

  7. Hi Indira,
    I am new to the food blogging world and greatly admire your work. I am awed browsing through your recipes and information. Its been six years leaving here in Orange County and although I learnt most of the cooking through browsing, somehow never moved beyond taraladalal and bawarchi:) I am glad I bumped into this wonderful place. Couldnt help penning down my appreciation for your work.

    Keep up the great work, and do accept my sincere thanks!

  9. Hi Ranjita: Happy to hear that you had success with the recipes. Thanks very much for the well wishes.

    Thanks Deepika. If you buy, I grately appreciate a product review, it would be helpful to others who are interested in this product.
    Have a great weekend!

    Who can resist ice pops during summer? 🙂
    Thanks Bee!

    Anjali: I’m curious, what brand did you buy?

    Congratulations Vijju. Please do write a product review, once you start using. Thanks.

    Hi Diane: Local Thai groceries sell kanom krok pans here. The impressions in them are quite shallow compared to the skillet we use.

    Nina: Thanks very much for your kind words. I greatly appreciate them!

    We are doing good, Trupti. Thanks for asking and hope you are enjoying the summer there in NFL.

  11. You are very welcome Indira. Yesterday I tried making Paneer at home as per your post and it turned out really good. I like reading the recipe post and also other users experience via comments.

  12. Indira,

    I have been intrigued by the Lodge series for a while now, but my cousin insists that it takes an inordinately long time to heat and is an inefficient use of energy. I am a bit hesitant. Any thoughts? I have a glass top range.

    Thanks 🙂

  16. I’m glad I found this page. I’ve been hauling out my abelskiver pan to make sweet and savory pancake puffs (i.e. with cheese or fruit filling) but somehow never took the short leap to make paniyaram. Can’t wait to start trying it out!

  18. I got one of these from Bed bath and beyond for $5 from their clearance shelf. It misses some of the parts(the skewers, the handle cover), but it is still a great deal.

    Comment by Shobana — May 27, 2008 @ 10:33 am

  20. Hello Indira and faithful readers:-)
    I have just discovered this blog and love it!
    I am a Slovenian, just moved to Costa Rica and the abundance of fruit has inspired me towards exotic cooking. Plan to make some mango jam today or tomorrow. I am also making a list of utensils I need in my new kitchen.
    Yes please, I am also interested in the Ponganalu/Paniyaram/Uniyappam Pan and which to buy – cast iron one or non stick. I also want to use it for poaching eggs etc:-)
    The other question, where can I buy online a ‘proper’ roti yala mold ?
    Thank you very much.
