Toddler + Yarn =DISASTER!!

Just when I think everything is going fine... My lovely tunic getting a long fine -
what should happen... My curious 2 yearold found my ball of yarn and my current WIP in a very convenient spot.
The rest is unthinkable. So many days( read that as MONTHS) of work has to be ripped.
Result - I am starting over again.

But on a more enthu front, my cooking is going great guns!! I made my first batch of pickled onions (the infamous pink onions that are a part of the Dhaba cuisine)
Must say, they were wonderful.

Ravelympics2010! Yoo! Hoo!

So finally this time around I decided to try to finish a top/tunic I started for my DD for some time back.
I have been keeping this as a WIP for a while and so the Ravelympics seemed the best way to get it done.

Soon hope to have photos and a tunic done for the DD

Yummy, Yummy Homemade crackers

So when my daughter kept insisting that she wanted some really really salty crackers for school, I was thinking why not try out my tried and kid tested(Loved) crackers.

A very simple recipe with ingredients that are at home all the time. For the recipe this time,

Ingredients :

Basic version
2 1/2 cup whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
pinch of salt to taste

I added -
1/4 cup Chickpea flour
1/4 millet flour
1/4 tsp Pepper powder (you can put red chilli powder if you like a hot spice)

I sifted all the flours. Then added the salt, spice and oil and kneaded the dough like for Rotis.
Then, flatted the dough to about 1 cm thickness or less. (Should be very thin. Bakes well and quick)  Then placed it on  parchment on a cookie sheet.

Also used a pizza cutter to cut the crackers.
Preheat the Oven for 350 degrees.
Then bake for about 8 to 9 mins. Thats all that it takes.

Now enjoy with any home made dip. The whole batch was over in a day.
