Blogging has helped me in more ways than I can can list out. But I realised that its helped develop my son's foodie taste buds and expanded his food vocabulary.
For a couple of years now, anything with dal would be sambar and all side dishes were bhajis.
Ever since I made these lamingtons, he's been fascinated with the name and now insists on knowing the name of everything he eats. He loves anything sweet and the latest is Nutella, which he has been eating with everything including dosas. Waffles feature as breakfast at least 2-3 times a month and he loves them.
Thanks to SJ, I made pancakes from Joy the Baker's blog for our Sunday breakfast. I had tried making pancakes once earlier and I don't remember him liking it much. But these had chocolate chips in it and he loved them. He had it for breakfast and dinner and again for breakfast this morning
I used home made buttermilk - the whey from making butter at home. Followed the recipe straight from Joy's blog. Its really fast, easy and super tasty with some maple syrup. I guess pancakes should be smaller and thicker. Mine spread out a bit too much. These look like chocolate chip dosas !!
