Good Evening!! to all my friends in the Western Hemisphere..
This morning while waking up my 17 year old son Avik and my 12 year old daughter Anana I thought about the sweet things they do to make my husband and me smile, and this led me thinking about what I used to do to make my parents happy as a young child and remembered this story. It makes me smile and I thought I would share it with all my friends.
I was in junior college when my mother had taken ill and I took it upon myself to cook for the family. They were simple everyday meals but I wanted to impress my father as most girls like to. So all breakfasts, lunches and dinners were cooked by me and after mom became well I still continued to make the chappatis (Indian flatbread) on the behest of my father, who said I made the best chappatis in the family.
Later on much after I got married I was relating this to my husband and he said that it was my father trying to encourage me so I got better at it.
Well, I would like to dedicate my first recipe ever on this blog to my dear father whom I love so much and wish he was here in this world with me. He would have been happy to see the way I have turned out to be.
This is a simple recipe my father made for us kids often at breakfast. I loved it then and I love it now.
Breads available in India those days, where I grew up, were mostly white.
I have brought in a wholesome change in the recipe by using multigrain bread.
