Car update – Dealing with the insurance was LOT less scary than I anticipated. But sometimes expecting the worst could actually be beneficial (this comes from the most optimistic person I know – me because when then anything lesser seems to be a huge relief – Saw my sweet van being towed away an hour ago and then started to of lunch – there were my idlis from yesterday and I was feeling bad as in I wanted to be bad, as in taking a perfectly healthy thing and turning into something wicked-good? so I cut the idlis up into cubes and mixed up a handful of besan/ chickpea flour (kadalamavu) threw in some sambar powder, added water and made the batter (I want to say 2 tsp), fired up the oil and before I knew it was on my way to eating one of THE most delicious dishes – Idli bajjis I KID YOU NOT!
A simple twist to make a delicious Geetha evil-twin of the healthy idlis Seetha Bangayi Geetha- (For those who not have watched Seetha aur Geetha, Seetha is an utterly boring twin sister of the rather spunky Geetha in a Hinid movie from the 70s, which got remade in Tamil as Vani-Rani with Vanishree in the lead) The western connotation would be Dr. Jekyl & Mr Hyde
I have not fried anything in my home for over a month now so I quell the guilt – besides when I was out this morning after the insurance was dealt with, met up with my sweet prego friend and enjoyed a wonderful session of girl-chat.
Here is a 4 step pictorial of the process Please do try it and let me know how you liked it!
Not wanting to stop at the evil twin, I created another avatar with them which I will blog about next – You can hold your breath – I am not planning to take long to post this next one lol!
