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…

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…
