So the whole neighborhood has gone on vacation. There is no-one to play with or talk to. Except me. Cos Dad's working through the weekend. Plus, it's been a rather gloomy day with sprinkles every now and then.
What does an 8 year old do?
Well, she makes Makeit & Bakeit glowing sun-catchers...
and while they are still baking, I rack my brains, remember an old Khana Khazana show, and make pinwheels for a snack...
These were easy to make and a great hit!
- Two slices of bread
- Green chutney
- Ketchup (for the kid version)
Spicy red garlic chutney (for the adult version)
- Cut the crust off each slice.
- Flatten each slice of bread by with a rolling pin.
- Spread green chutney on one side of a flattened slice. Cover this with the other flattened slice and spread ketchup on the one on top. (Or spicy red garlic chutney for the adults).
- Roll it up carefully, pretty much like you would roll up a sponge cake for a Swiss Roll.
- Slice each roll into 8 pinwheels.
and serve immediately!
The pinwheels disappeared almost instantly. The boondi was quickly smothered in yogurt for an impromptu boondi raita that was consumed with relish.
The glowing suncatchers are out of the oven and we are waiting for them to cool before we hang them on Medha's window.
