It was one of my friend’s Wedding Anniversary last week. I wished him on his big day. Ten minutes later his reply arrived.
Single liner which read : ‘Oh! Is it today?’
Ouch. Now I was concerned. He is not perfect, but he still deserves a better fate than being shredded into a thousand tiny-tiny pieces – which, I am sure, is what awaits any husband if they forget the wife’s birthday or the wedding anniversary.
Worried, I started mailing him – Was he fine? Was he still alive? Pat came the reply : ‘Its OK. We both forgot!’
Ah Man! What a lucky escape! But thinking over, that is what you call : A Match Made in Heaven.
Like this Pachadi and unbelievably soft Sweet Potato chapatis (will post the recipe tomm.), a match made in heaven, just for kids.
I am a big fan of sweet pachadi. I came across this recipe in Jeyashri’s Kitchen. The bright and shiny picture immediately caught my attention. This is typically served for weddings and feasts in very small quantities.
- Tomatoes : 4, chopped
- Sugar : 1/4 – 1/2 cup (taste and adjust)
- Water : 1/4 cup
- Ghee : 1 tbsp
- Dates : 3- 4
- Raisins & Cashews : 1 tbsp
- Add the sugar, water and chopped tomato pieces in a thick bottomed vessel and keep mixing in a medium low fire.
- Keep stirring continuously till it reaches the semi solid jam/pachadi state (10 – 15 min for me).
- Heat ghee in a separate pan, add chopped dates, raisins and chopped cashews.
- Add to the pachadi, mix. Serve with rice or chapati.
- Note : I over cooked it a bit, if you look at the original recipe, it is much more glossy and shiny. Also, I would blanch the tomatoes next time.
