Today is special day as it is my Dad’s Birthday. I would like to start with a beautiful Mayan Indian Proverb.
“In the baby lies the future of the world. Mother must hold the baby close so that the baby knows it is his world but the father must take him to the highest hill so that he can see what his world is like.”
Every Daughter’s first hero is her “DAD”.
My first hero too is my DAD ,a man of substance who has always guided me on the right path, supported me whenever I needed one and believed in me all the time. He is as strong as a Mountain , as generous as an Ocean, and one of the most sensible men in my Life. My kids are also lucky to grow up into sensible human beings under his able guidance.
He always ensured us a decent lifestyle and got us whatever we wanted as me and my brother were sensible kids. He believes in simple pleasures of life and does not believe in showing off.
I would like to make this birthday a memorable one by spending quality time with my Parents. Do simple things that he enjoys.
So dedicating this post to my DAD. I Made Simple Baked Bread Vadas .
Bread pieces – 6 1/2 cup of rice flour
Curd(as required to get dough consistency)
1 Tbsp Flax seed powder 1/2 tsp of jeera / cumin seeds 2 medium size onions finely chopped
2 florets of Cauliflower grated
1.5 Tsp Red chilli powder
Handfull of corn Kernels An inch of ginger grated Handfull of corriander chopped
A Pinch of Garam Masala
Salt to Taste
Now tear the bread pieces with your hands and add rice flour, Flaxseed powder, curd, onions,grated cauliflower,corns ginger, jeera, salt, red chilli powder and Chopped corriander to it, mix everything well to form a dough.Now wet your hands and take some dough in your hands and give it a round shape and in between with finger just give a dent . Brush the vadas with oil and now it’s ready to be baked.
Pre-Heat the Oven at 180 C for 10 mins. Place the baking tray in the preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 mins. Yummy crisp vadas are ready. Serve with chutney of your choice and enjoy.
