Empanada refers to a crescent-shaped pastry turnover stuffed/filled with savory meats and vegetables fillings or sweet fruit fillings. Empanada's recipe varies from cook to cook. In Ilocos Region, in the north of the Philippines, there are already two (2) famous Empanada, the one from Vigan, Ilocos Sur and Empanada Batac from Batac, Ilocos Norte
I am proud of the the Empanada which is sold in the San Pablo City, Laguna which is buy whenever I visit my relatives in Metro Manila as my treat coming from the province (Pasalubong, we call it in the Philippines) whenever I have my vacation in the Philippines. It is made by El Mare. Their Empanada are always freshly baked.
Here are the pictures of the Empanada from my city in Laguna. I think these Empanadas are baked in the oven so it is not oily, which make it light on the stomach
Ellu Unda also spelled Ellunda refers to one of South Indian sweets which are actually ball-shaped sweetened Sesame sweets. They are Sesame seed Balls which are made from roasted Sesame seeds called Ellu in Malayalam cooked with melted Jaggery, then shaped into small balls.
Ellu Unda is best served with hot tea during afternoon snacks. I have eaten some during my train ride going to Kanniyakumari in Tamil Nadu
Unda is Malayalam word for balls, hence this sweet treat is called Ellu Unda in Malayalam
Below are two (2) pictures of Ellu Unda, one from Allepey and the other one from Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala, respectively

Deutsch: Aubergine / Español: Solanum melongena/ Português: Beringela / Français: Aubergine / Italiano: Solanum melongena
Eggplant (Solanum melongena) is a species of nightshade commonly known in British English as aubergine and also known as brinjal, brinjal eggplant, melongene, garden egg, or guinea squash. It bears a fruit of the same name (commonly either "eggplant" in American English or "aubergine" in British English) that is widely used in cooking, most notably as an important ingredient in dishes such as moussaka and ratatouille.
The egg is the organic vessel containing the zygote in which an embryo develops until it can survive on its own, at which point the animal hatches. An egg results from fertilization of an egg cell. Most arthropods, vertebrates (excluding live-bearing mammals), and mollusks lay eggs, although some, such as scorpions, do not.
