Happy Ugadi!

Dear Foodies,

Happy Ugadi/Gudi Padwa
A very Happy New Year to all of you who celebrate it today. This year promises to be one of the most exciting ones for me. The wedding is just a few weeks away and as expected I am a complete mixed bag of emotions right now :))) There are loads of things I'm looking forward too - a new family to meet, new experiences to cherish and newer memories to create, memories that are going to last me a lifetime! I am nervous and I'm excited and I know its going to turn out fabulous :D I just can't wait to get on the plane and go meet my parents!

I made some rava kesari and masala vada to ring in the year. Ugadi at home meant my mom would treat us to a complete hotel style thaali/plate meal. I am not as fast as her nor as patient, so while I got busy making these two dishes, I skipped making a proper lunch :)) I'll come back with the recipes later :) You guys have a fabulous day and even more fabulous year ahead.

Happy Ugadi Priya. May your year be exciting and full of all good things, as sweet, rich and delicious as the rava kesari.

Are you going to meet your new extended family for the first time ?
