Sweet Boondi

Boondi is a easy to prepare, quick snack for diwali..We can make it in different colours, as served in weddings or can stick with basic yellow color..I made yellow and orange..would like to add green too next time..I'm preparing this under desserts for BM#57..Do give it a try fo rthis diwali and you will like it for it's simplicity and taste..

Soan Papdi / Patisa

Soan papdi is a thing which I tried and failed so many times, but now this time I got it good..When I saw vahchef's video,right away I tried before 2 years I think..but ended up making something like a mysore pak( little harder to be honest)..The sugar syrup consistency is very important in this process and we should keep all the ingredients and greased pans ready since timing is everything here..But when we taste the soft  home made soan papdis they are worthwhile the effort..As diwali is nearing, started experimenting again..I'm preparing this for BM #57 under desserts..Do give a try and you will enjoy it for sure..

Pala Payaru Sundal

The pala payaru sundal is a very helpful sundal when we forgot to soak the sundals previously..It has little bit of all the types of sundal and it will be a very different tasting sundal..This is a very fragrant sundal since we dry roast them and tastes awesome..While roasting take care not to burn any  since it will spoil the taste..Do give a try to this different sundal this season and enjoy..
