Sometimes ,somethings taste heaven if served fancily… Just like this pinwheel today. The jam / nutella sandwitch that we prepare for the lil ones can be made attractive with these bite sized pinwheels . They can just gobble a few running around the house .. Why lil ones?? I found them quite attractive.. They make a lovely party starter at your lil one’s party.. Did I say 10 min to make the pinwheel ? Yes.. Infact its 3 minutes to spread & roll , 5 minutes to rest in the wrapped state and 2 min to cut the pinwheels. Get help from your lil ones to give them the pride of making their own snack..
L ovely Weekend… With a picnic lunch at Virginia Waters Lake… A good 4.5 miles walk around the lake and enjoying the best of the british summers… on a perfect Sunda.y… Packed a few nans and roti’s from the birthday party on Saturday and made Kadai Aloo to go with it 🙂
Today’s post on Sabudana Wada is a creation out of no special occasion or treat. I m just on a spree in finishing the stocks in my pantry.. Thats when I came across this left over Sabudana . I love the way my momma makes Sabudana Khichadi… I havent reached her perfection point.. My hubby found my version not up to the mark.. though I tried a similar way… But not with the wada’s . Bingo!! Came out perfect and ideal as a starter or as tea snack . This Sago Seeds Dumpling hails from Maharashtra and is particularly made during fasting.
Couple of weeks back ,we had a potluck tea party home . Each of us had cooked a snack ideal for the evening..But tea party went on and the snacks made up for the heavy dinner. Menu was Spicy Maggie , Paneer Tikka , Spicy sundal & Fruit Kheer . Offocurse we had it with tea.. Coz it was Tea Party!!
My dear friend Anu had made this Sundal soo beautifully with such simple ingredients that I couldnt stop myself from asking her to write for me…. Luckily I did manage to get some nice clicks…
I had promised H a new snack if he comes home early on this lazy snowy day.. And he suddenly pinged a while later.. saying be ready with ur Surprise snack .. Will b home in 20 minutes…
Wondering wot to do?? Immediately started browsing this lovely easy vegetarian book that I picked from the library.Came across this yummy potato snack.. Rösti.But it had different seasoning like Sage leaves & thyme. Didnt have any of them.. Was planning for an alternative seasoning.. just then my neighbour Granny came over and handed over a Shortbread cookies for Chritsmas.. They were lovely
.. I was asking her to suggest me a sesoning .. and she said.. I could use Coriander and Parsley in Rösti and they will make a lovely Scandivian dish.
H thoroughly enjoyed & relished the taste .My 22 months old moster loved it for it was just melting in his mouth … Thats the verdict..
