Corn & Peas Fritters - Blog Hop Wednesdays


     
                                     Ok I will name this Blog Hop Disaster Wednesday.........

Last week when I decided to hop into the blog I was to paired with  this Wednesday..I decided to make Khandvi  from Santhosh Bangar's blog Santhosh's Kitchen.... I was a little apprehensive in the beginning coz I have had a bad experience before with this dish...but I like to challenge myself  ...tried it out again (over confident:)....I tried out the Microwave method of making the Khandvi...all was fine....till the time came to roll the Khandvi.....I was successful with few but the rest just refused  to be rolled (Picture Below).....the dish tasted exactly like it should have  and it disappeared in minutes....but it just wasn't presentable....So that was disaster number one.

Now  Disaster Number 2...I tried Khandvi again yesterday (coz I wanted it to be presentable)...this was not me being over confident.....it was plain foolishness. I struggled and struggled  ...but this time the Khandvi just refused to set....I thought at some point between the one and half hours of struggling...my mom would come for my rescue....but my mom ..being my mom...totally disowned me looking at  my condition and left the kitchen...No Khandvi :(

Disaster Number 3... I was jinxed ..I had to make something ...went back to Santhosh's blog today morning and finally decided to do something quick and simple...Corn and peas Fritters.....had all the ingredients at home...and they tasted good. Came to me room to quickly put up the post...only then to realize that Santhosh actually made these fritters for her Blog Hop Wednesday from another blog ( Anamika Aruns Taste Junction) last month...:))))

Moral of the story : Always read the entire post before trying out the recipe and
 Khandvi is only for experts.

  21. Seriously Charishma What is wrong with the Khandvi Gal. It looks just perfect with me and I truly appreciate the perfectionist in you for trying out something different to do justice to yourself. The fritters are perfect too and the halved ones are just so yummm.

  22. Now I know that corn and peas can also be partnered for a remarkably unique recipe.
