My friend is a Tupperware distributor. Every month she regularly gives me the flyer she receives from them. My interest is not is on sale but what recipes are given there. J
I have copied quite a few of the recipes but this was for the first time tried one out.
Today I decided to try Rava Idlis. Well I do try them out regularly you may expect me to be an expert in making them but in actual fact we, the Rava idli and I do not agree. The Rava Idlis do not agree that and I am the boss and I expect them to turn out in a particular fashion.
Either the idlis are soggy or they are flat pancakes. So when these came out so beautiful I was thrilled.
As a child I have stayed in rented places always. Pappa used be transferred after every 3 years and we used to shift bases. I love that life too. It was new friends, new beginnings and a new house.
One such house I remember when I was small we had a lot of garden place we had marigold (my rapt students who used see the end of my stick if they did not pay attention to teacher J ) and we had corn planted, there were groundnuts too but then some creature ate them up at night. Must have been rats.
Anyway we had had a bumper crop of corn and Amma had made Corn Upit. I do not remember how that tasted but I remember Amma and the maid sitting and grating corn.
My father-in-law is diabetic so we have been careful of his diet, but these days we have to be a bit more careful so cooking at home have undergone a sea change. The occasional batata chalega, cake okay has come down. The extra sugar does show up on his next blood sugar readings.
What is diabetics? What is reason for the increase in blood sugar? What are the side-effects? These questions I have tried answering here do check it out.
One word that had caught up with me is Diabetics.
Some 25 years ago it was something that my father-in law’s brother suffered from. He had a very controlled diet. Beyond that it did not exist in my dictionary.
Then in one health check-up my Father in law was diagnosed as diabetic! Now came in my world the word regulation… diet regulation. Being extremely on the thin side and wishing to put on weight this was a word unknown to me. But there were/are diet restrictions!
Yes this is post is a part of the Diabetic Awareness Day where a group of us are getting together to spread awareness about Diabetics!
For the WE KNEAD TO BAKE this time we are baking sandwich bread. The only change was it’s a bread is a 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread.
Aparna has adapted Peter Reinhart’s recipe for 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread from his book “Whole Grain Breads” he recipe uses a soaking procedure and the Biga/ sponge and that is the secret to the softness and texture of this bread.
This recipe is dedicated to Sandhya, Vaishali’s daughter who has recently delivered a beautiful baby gir!!
Its amazing how life changes with every turn you take. Before February’13 I did not know Vaishali personally,only as a beautiful blogger and crafts person. Her post and crafts are visual delight.
After our BM #25 meet we have all gelled like a family. Vaishali is an awesome person.
So its apt that I send Sandhya a small virtual sample of what I am guzzling down under the guise of trying out a recipe for her!! Honest that is my official line!! LOL!!
So here is for Sandhya a virtual kheer for her to have before her cuppa.
My husband’s favourite breakfast is Fried Eggs.
I would have never ever written how to make a Fried Egg. I mean it’s no rocket science but then one of my friend’s and colleague reminded me that it may be simplest things but the learning also starts with alphabets.
So for Blogging Marathon with alphabets is not Fried Eggs apt?
So here is Fried Eggs my way…
