Its just a 4 days for Deepavali… and m sure all are busy preparing sweets and savories for this Deepavali…. I m posting the wishes and a sweet today itself as I may not be able to blog for some time. Deepavali is the festival of Lights. The word 'Deepavali' is made up of two simple words. 'Deepa' means light and 'Avali' means a row. Hence 'Deepavali' means a row of lights. The festival is associated with many legends and beliefs. One of them is to commemorate the killing of Narakasura, a notorious demon, by Lord Krishna. Narakasura, because of his previous store of virtue, had been granted a boon at the moment of his death. He asked that his death might ever be, commemorated as a day of feasting. Hence Deepavali is known as 'Naraka Chaturdashi. So this Deepavali, as you shop for Diyas, ponder upon its flame's spiritual nature. It will not only beautify and brighten your home, but will remind you of the transformations that it is meant to bring wi…
Hello all, hope u had a great weekend we to did... infact its the 2nd day of the week for us and we r waiting for the weekend eagerly as its celebration time for us J. Some food pictures attract one so much that you feel like
eating it right away. Same did this picture do to me! I wanted to gulp it right
away but there was no way that I could get it anywhere here or make it the
moment I saw. So I had to wait for a day and made it the very next day. I kept
all the things ready in the morning so that I don’t miss a single thing. But I
had a few doubt’s which Prathibha cleared the very moment I asked her.
Thank U Prathy for the recipe as well as guiding me when I was in a doubt.
It was so yum that I we(even my lil one) could not resist eating it. I
made puri’s also at home as we could have as much as we want and my little one
also was eating them, I wanted to make it at home healthy and fresh.
We finish off the whole batch of puri’s and pani too ;) I know you may think
crazy people but …
Mom is the best cook in the whole world… isn’t it? I have
told about my mom’s food in n number of posts I can keep praising her food
every time I speak about our Amchigele cooking. She is a expert to cook any
kind of dish from sweets to savories or any kind of side dishes…. Its just
Amazing to see her to make things perfect without any stress. There are just a
few dishes that she has given up and one among that is jalebi which I want to
master by the time my kids grow ;). Saat is one such sweet that amma makes perfect. Making saat
is not east as the deep frying, the flaky texture,the sugar consistency and the
bottom everything must be perfect. And amma does is just perfect. Saat is a cousin of
badusha I can say, the difference is there is a sugary chip below the sweet
which is very much liked among the kids, This is actually a sugary sweet in
Mangalore made of Maida flour & rolled in sugar syrup with a hint of cardamom.
I am not a big fan of this blandish sweet though its one of m…
