Nov 5, 2008
Yes, this date last year was my first post. After much contemplation and inspired by many blogs here, I did start blogging, more-so to keep a record for myself of what goes on in my kitchen. Initially, I had plans of not stricting this blog just to food, but to bring in more about the Konkani culture, things about my native place and our customs and traditions. Somehow, I have not been successful in doing that so far, but its always on my mind to someday include other things than food. Hopefully, I will be able to do that.
I know I started with a great deal of enthusiasm with posts on a regular basis, but haven't really been able to do that for sometime now. Sometimes, its other things happening at home, sometimes laziness and at other times just a feeling of having no recipes or nothing to blog about :).
Thanx to all you wonderful people who visit this blog and leave your valuable comments for me everytime. It has helped a lot and I really appreciate each of you of leaves a comment here and gives your suggestions. A request to all those who read to please drop in a line and leave your feedback too. It just boosts up the spirit :).
The most wonderful part of blogging is having got to know some wonderful people in the blogosphere and am really glad to have come across these people and their friendship. So thanx to you all.
Let's celebrate this with some Mysore Pak, what say ??
I followed VahChef's recipe here. The video was really helpful. There is room for improvement in my making of the Mysore Pak, so hopefully next time, it will come out better than this time.
I did a little bit of adjustment with the quantities he mentioned.
These are the quantities I used..
Besan/Gramflour - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 cup. As he mentioned I used half ghee & half oil.
Sugar - 1 1/4 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Check out the video & recipe here.
OK, too much of a sugar-dose happening with Diwali and Halloween in the past weeks. So, no more sweet posts for sometime now. Ya rite, with the holiday season coming up, I sure can only wish for that :)..
