Reading was an important part of our growing up and our childhood was full of books – Amar Chitra Kathas, Tinkle and lots of local magazines for kids. As we grew older my mother – who is an avid reader, started introducing translated version of Children’s classic books. Once you are done with the translated book, there is an automatic interest in reading the original. She would then get it from the library.
So when I thinking about a recipe for the third day of Blogging Marathon, for the theme ‘Storybook Based Recipes’, my thought went to the all time classic Alice in Wonderland.
I was planning to bake the ‘Eat me’ Cookies, but then changed my mind and settled on the magical shrinking potion. I made rose milk syrup, but unfortunately I had only orange-red food color. So my syrup turned out to be orange! A drawback indeed! I didn’t ponder much on it since the taste was correct.
This is a simple sugar syrup (half cup each of sugar and water) cooled, flavored with a tablespoon of rosewater and a few drops of rose essence. A pinch of pink color (or the disastrous orange, in my case) is added for color.
