Chutney Sandwich and poori too. The cats breakfast twice.

Today I made Green coconut chutney used it as a spread for making sandwiches. The chutney color was lovely with all that coriander leaves. I love fresh coriander. I am happy to cook when I hace it. Me an hubby had a good breakfast with those sandwiches.

But as they say ' Dane dane par likha hai khanewale ka nam' in Hindi, meaning(every grain has the person's name for whom it is for), came true. Sasha got up late so did not have breakfast with us. Though I had kept the bread packet on the top shelf, the cats managed to reach it. Though I had already fed them when we had breakfast, they decided they wanted some more. When I went to the kitchen, the bread slices were all scattered on the floor. Well, I fed the bread to the cats again.

When Sasha got up, first she started bawling that she wouldn't be getting Chutney Sandwiches. She quietened when she realized that she would be getting her favorite dish, Poori.

I had to make pooris for Sasha. She was of course very happy with that. So finaly everyone was happy. The cats were happy to breakfast three times. Sasha was happy to have her favorite item. I am happy that I got something to write about.

After a Break

Yesterday I wrote a page on my vegetarian recipes site about millet and that reminded me of the Bhakri made by mom. She makes it with 'Jowar'. I love them. Especially with 'Zunka'. I make them too but not as big as she makes. It is medium sized. It is not too time consuming. And it tastes wonderful.

I like to make them but the mess it is creates is too much. The whole stove needs to be washed. So I guess the reason I don't make bhakari often is my laziness to wash the kitchen after wards.

When hubby went to Pune sometime back, I got some Bajra flour them there. I made the bhakri, applied some sesame seeds too. Just the way it is done on Bhogi day, the day before Sankranti festival. And everyone loved it. I should make it more often.
