Few days back I made Mung Dal Burfi. I really gorge on the mung dal sweets. Although lots of calories still cant resist them. i am sure the laddus are just perfect for my sweet tooth.

You are a star....

this is a dialogue my client pass on me when he see his work completed in time and according to his expectations.

You know why I called you a star... thats because you made the ladoos that I was expecting from long...

And that from moongdal is new to me and my taste buds.

I have tried to prepare moongdal payasam tomorrow so will keep this for next weekend.
