Makers of My Favorite Attire


And finally the Navaratri is done. It’s pack up time now. These gorgeous colors will go in suitcase now and I will have to wait until next year. All the credits goes to my Maa and my Baa (Grandma) for making this amazing authentic ethnic wardrobe. My Maa sew the Kediyas and my Baa did all the handmade embroidery. Isn’t it PHENOMENAL ???

Wednesday with Vadas

The smell of dewy send and freshly fried Dalvadas are so mutually mingled that every Gujarati waits to eat Dalvadas as soon as it starts raining.

Though I haven’t cooked it yet but I would love to share my Maa’s special recipe:

CAUTION!!! (Understanding of recipe by everyone is uncertain)
Mix all Dal [Mung Dal – 2 Cups, Udad Dal – 1 Cup, Chana Dal -1 cup, Chola Dal – 1 cup ]
Soak it in water for 5 to 6 hours.
Drain out the water from it and crush it properly.
Add paste of ginger and green chill you can also add garlic paste. * We don’t eat garlic so Maa doesn’t add.*
Add salt and hing [Asafoetida] according to taste.
Put small dumplings of the mix in hot oil until it looks like the one in photographs.
And if you nail it than Yeyeiiii !!!! Serve it with hot fried green chill and onion rings (sprinkle salt on it).

At Aanand Daalwada Center, Ankur, Ahmedabad.
