Soya chunks ki vade

  My kiddoo remained sick for over four days... :( but, slowly she was recovering from her physical illness.  So, this weekend, I decided to make something special for her...She luves vada, and everytime she sees them outside, she will say, 'mai, i want vada'.. But, all left was some sprouts, some dal and soya chunks/mealmaker balls.  It was then, i decided to add them and transform into an pure hybrid vada.. ;)  And yes, result was good... vada was fabulous grabbing everyone's attention and was soo glad that kid liked it...
Afterall, it was an healthy protein combo pack, do try it for ur kids and let me know...

French Macaroons

    I had got this French macaroons for Baking partners challenge, having done first two challenges correctly, I got overambitious and resulted in burnt macaroons in my first time...  I did get upset and rate of upset was a too high factor because these macaroons required a very costly ingredients therefore making it hard to give consequent try unlike bread, buns, cakes etc.  And not only that these macaroons required high technical assistance like adding ingredients on particular texture of egg white or folding almond flour on a correct 50-stroke basis.  Though there are thousands of online videos, nothing can match like tutoring it on person.. But, what to do??...
   After had one failure attempt, I decided to visit all successful pages of macaroons accomplishers... and read lots of stories.. of all, I got fascinated  by the story of Swathi from zestysouthindiankitchen and Priya from cooklikepriya.  I read their story many times a day to understand the concept, thank u guys for such a brief description.  After reading so, i got hopes for an second try and finally made macaroons!!!!
