Yesterday, I had gone to my friend’s house for a lunch kitty. She had a kitty party and invited me as a guest. I ate there heart full and when came back was feeling very sleepy after eating so much. As soon as I hit the bed, I didn’t know where I was and slept like a log.
After a while, I got up lazily and picked up my phone to see time. I saw there was a notification of new mail. As soon as I opened my mailbox, I saw PJ’s mail showing CCC challenge. Immediately my eyes were popped open. I had just completed my task of posting three salad recipes and here it is…. Another challenge. But these challenges only keep me motivated.
CCC is Cooking from Cookbook Challenge, in which the participants have to post those dishes which are either taken from cookbooks, magazine cuttings, cookery shows, written down recipes, family recipes etc. This challenge was started by Srivalli in 2013. From this month, when she thought of reviving the group, I happily accepted to be a part of it.
After seeing mail I got up without a delay and picked up my mom’s dairy to find a recipe. I decided to just open a page and whichever recipe will be there on that page I’ll make that only.
When I opened the page, there were two recipes on that page, one was banana jam and another was mango burfi. As my kids don’t like dishes made with banana,I decided to make mango burfi. Moreover it seemed to be very easy and all the ingredients were there in the kitchen.
Since I was making it for the first time and wasn’t sure whether my kids would like it or not, so made a small batch of it.
When I started making it, the milk started curdling. A bit apprehensive, I continued with the cooking and slowly it started getting together and a nice aroma started filling my kitchen. There I knew, it’s going to be hit at least with me and my hubby but wasn’t sure of my kids especially my son.
With little apprehension, I gave a small piece of it to my son and asked him to find out what it is. He immediately recognised that it is some mango dish and insisted to make more before mango is out of season. You can easily realise my happiness that my mom’s recipe is loved by my fussy kids. I’m going to make it again before my favourite mango ‘Safeda’ disappears from the market.
