Sri's Bhaji's

I told him to use some sweet potatoes along with the other veggies... They were good! He used 2 parts Besan to 1 part rice flour and added some asafoetida, turmeric, cayenne pepper, black salt, and water and mixed to a batter consistency.

Mix, mix and muck...

He likes to use his hands...

Watching the frying very intently, with his hands on his hips and that look on his face...

Taadaa! There they are, waiting to be devoured!

~ "Nothing is more noble, nothing more venerable than fidelity... Faithfulness and truth are the most sacred excellences and endowments of the human mind" - Marcus Tullius Cicero ~

~ "Do not let loyalty and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart" - Bible ~

~ "Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness... It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose" - Helen Keller ~

~ "The lover heals the world not by a vague and abstract love for everybody and everything, but by becoming passionate and vowing fidelity to concrete relationships, persons, institutions and places" - Sam Keen ~

~ "We are not judged by the degree of our light but by fidelity to the light we have" - William Ellery Channing ~

~ "For fidelity, devotion, love, many a two-legged animal is below the dog and the horse... Happy would it be for thousands of people if they could stand at last before the Judgment Seat and say 'I have loved as truly and I have lived as decently as my dog' and yet we call them 'only brutes'!" - Henry Ward Beecher ~

yumminess:))fried anything is oober yummy in my book-and those pakoras look fab- love the intent look on his face while he's watching them being fried-my husband's the same way, he gets this super intense science geek look on his face when cooking.

I always listen to Dori suggestions when it comes to cooking as i know she gets it right when it comes to food..She didnt like the fried bitter guard though-too bitter for her. Her date chutney was the best combo which made the bhaji even better :)
