…And Barbeque Sandwich
I have come across many cookbooks, got quite a few in my collection but the book ‘Heaven on Tongue‘, the latest addition to my collection stands out for many reason. What do I like about the book? There are quite a few reason but let me highlight a few.
This is one recipe I found in my mom`s diary that I had planned on making since a long time. And just like other dishes, this one too did not materialize…until recently!
Mom does not remember from where she had noted this recipe and the actual measurements were not mentioned. So mom & I referred a few basic pancake recipes and worked out our own measurement. And they turned out perfect! Its pretty simple to make and will hardly take 30 mins! What caught my attention was the ingredients used – adding wheat flour makes it healthy along with goodness of apples, milk and you also have the ‘chocolat-y’ flavor in it..Kids would definitely adore these pancakes for breakfast or for eve..And when the pancakes are being cooked, it actually smells like a cake is being baked.
Seeing this tri – colored sandwich our nation`s flag comes to mind and in turn brings me back memories of celebrating important milestones of our country India in our school. Republic day, Independence day were some of the occasions where flag was hoisted in our school grounds and we as students proudly saluted as the tri-colored flag was lifted up the flag pole. Let me say something about the Independence celebrated each year by all Indians and what significance it held to us back as kids in school.
August 15th, 1947 saw India`s independence from the British rule and its birth as a sovereign nation. It is a day observed all over India with flag hoisting ceremonies, parades and many a cultural events strengthening the popular concept – ‘unity in diversity’.
At the age of 4 and 5, this day was as important as it was for all other citizens. It was a day marked as ‘holiday’ in our school calendar, a day we all enthusiastically sang our national anthem, saluted our national flag hoisted by our headmistress.
