Battle of Eden: Can India make it Even?

With Jammi’s Jaws jammed
Situation in the team is very Gambhir
Much depends on how Seh’wags’ his bat
Will Lord Badrinath ensure’em Vijay?
Will it again be a TON-dulkar?
Will Laxman’s hits cross the Rekha?
If Dhoni can do something Unhoni
Can Mishra prove to be A-myth
Hopefully Zaheer Khan bowl well
Sharma keeps the Proteas e-Shanth
We need to sing Har-Bhajans possible
Or else without a “Jumbo” effort
It may be a Kar-na-saka for Dhoni’s men

From Niki Tasha’s Kitchen Net: Gundu Kadabus

Thanks to the long working hours of the week gone by, I found myself at the receiving end from the ladies in the house. I was promptly informed that kitchen will be completely in my control on Saturday and I was expected to cook something out of the world!! Not sure what they meant because the recipe I found was from cyber world, and these days the virtual world is very much a part of the real world.

For the main dish of the day, I visited http://www.sanjeevkapoor.com and
tried dishing out Char Dal Ni Kichdi (as in Kichdi made from 4 varieties of Gram). The recipe turned out very well and was quite a hit with the missus. But what made me a runaway hit that day was my innovative Gundu Kadabus or Gol Modhak.

Gundu Kadabus

It turned out so that there were a few Gol Gappes left (Pani Puri as it is more illustriously known) from the previous week’s Gol Gappe Bash. I picked up one piece and tasted it. The taste of the Gol Gappe reminded me of the Kobbari Sakkare Kadabus (Naariyal Shakkar Modhak).

A light bulb flashed above my head, in typical comic ishtyle. I picked up some Desiccated Coconut, Sugar, Green Cardamom powder and fried it in a pan with home-made Ghee for about 2-3 minutes. I started filling in the Gol Gappes with this mixture. Lo Behold!!! The Gundu Kadabus were ready to be feasted upon. Missus and the little one happily called for successive helpings and gorged on them.
