Mysore Pak

Life is pretty much busy with a toddler. She wants to touch everything do what ever mommy does. Life is also fun with her. I want to enjoy with her as much as possible. She has her own opinion of things. Today I made idlis, but she wouldn’t touch it just because they are white. I hope this stage doesn’t last long. She wants to know why I am doing certain things. Life is busy and fun. From now on atleast I will try to post one recipe a week.
