I have just got few minutes to relax. I am doing something or other from early morning. House was like a dustbin from yesterday night. Why????Yesterday was my hubby's birth day.
Yesterday, we had a small get to gather at home.The end of day we were tired like anything, so we dumped everything as it is, and went to sleep.
As per my in laws tradition, we prepare at least a sweet at home, on any occasion like birth day or wedding anniversary, and being a daughter in law of a traditional iyengar family I have done same since this time my in laws are not in station.. I prepared a very common traditional sweet known as Kesari in south India but in other places in India it is called as suji ka halwa.I do not know that how many of you know that there is lots of difference in between these two sweets.Soon I ll post the recipe for suji ka halwa also but for time being just have a look how I have prepared my kesari.
