I am glad we have all stopped in India. We will be here for a period of three weeks.
For the past few weeks I have been wondering what dish I have to make while we are here.
I wanted my first post to be something which I would not do otherwise. Most of the recipes on my blog are Indian, but this one had to be different. Indian cuisine, with all the differences is a great culinary adventure by itself. To pick a dish out of this endless list is impossible. So, I searched Google to see what people think is the list of must have / Must try Indian dishes. And the list just scared me off. So I will just stick to things I have been putting off for a while or which according to my opinion is a great Indian dish.
Now, I am a native of Kerala, did my schooling in Tamil Nadu and have been living in Karnataka for the last 10 years. So I have almost the whole of south India covered. Just Andhra Pradesh is left. I once had a crush on a guy from Andhra. Does that count ? See, I can do anything to claim that I know the whole of south India.
I think I would still make an exception and let Bijoy get the milk cake from the local bakery. He loves buying the milk cakes for them as much as they love eating it.
Sugar - 1 cup
Semolina - 1 Tbsp
