A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent
I have been in a very sad and nostalgic mood since morning… its been 9 years now but still every winters my heart starts to ache for Delhi and every lohri its at the peak… I have been thinking about those cold mornings and evenings and the very warming winter food. The Til Gajak… Though now one can easily get it in Bangalore but there is something about the ones from Delhi or may be its the heart, its the memories attached with it. So while I was in that mood today N told me why don’t you make gajak.. Being in kitchen will also pep you up (Yeah its become like a norm now, mona is depressed make her cook/bake) and I really liked the idea and started surfing for the recipe. I initially thought of making Varo which was the Indian Cooking Challenge couple of months back but I had missed it but I also wanted to make something with Jaggery and not Sugar. So the search continued and as usual I picked up something from here, something from there and made my gajak and its absolutely yumm…. infact N was not letting me take pictures at all as wanted to eat. I made a smaller quantity as I was making it for the first time but now I am regretting it…
And now that I have made some gajak and eaten it too I feel better much better and I am planning on what to do in the evening
What I used
How I made it
So here’s hoping that this delicious offering will pep up your festival too as it did mine happy lohri/Pongal/Sakranti to all of you
And I am sending it to Winter Warmers, what better dish to warm oneself than a gajak….
