I can’t say the day is going great, but it’s still much better than yesterday when I had six, yes six packets cheesy doritos. Breakfast was 2 aloo parathas with yoghurt and pickle and cup of coffee with milk and more sugar than I wanted.
I made Almond Puddings from Salkkaaram. I was in a bit of a creative mood and decided to pour the pudding into individual bowls and gave them personalised toppings that included sprinkle, dried fruit and nuts.
This one had dried grapes and a mint leaf 🙂
And this one had dried figs.
Can you spot the blurred coconut trees I can see from my kitchen on the sixth floor?
I had so much fun decorating them, though I must say peeling a cup of blanched almonds was not my favourite part. Everyone gave a positive feedback, even little Ahmed, who is usually very hard to please.
Lunch was pretty decent, 2 idlis with sambar, carrot and split pea (chana dal) stir fry and an organic fried egg.
— Have you ever had almond pudding?
