My favorite things to cook
Anything baked - cakes,cookies etc also desserts, sweets and drinks. I also love making anything rich and chocolaty and decadent.Also learning to make my mom's wattalappan.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making the wattalappan before Eid. The whole family gathers around the pantry table and helps with beating the eggs, melting jaggery and of Course the TASTING!!
My cooking triumphs
My chocolate fudge cake. Made it for my brothers wedding and everybody loved it.They just couldn't seem t get enough.:)
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried my hand at cooking at 13 I attempted trifle. While cooking the custard i was so afraid of burning it that I didn't allow it to cook properly, which resulted in a watery, floury-tasting custard which wouldn't set up and made all the fruit sink!
