"I am on diet, Mommy" I declared one fine day
Mom looked at me in suspicion and asked "So, what are you going have for dinner tonight?"
"Make a plate of Idli"
"Okay. What shall I make along with it? Peanut chutney or Sambar or Coconut chutney ?"
"That's too much of fat, Mamma. I will eat with Mixed dal power (Commonly called karam podi or mulaga podi) or dried curry leaves powder. They are healthy and are good source of proteins" I replied sounding firm.
Mom handed me a plate of idli with dal powder. After the first bite, I thought I need to add something to make it tasty and interesting.
Hence, I added 2 spoons of oil to the dal powder and sprinkled 3 spoons of ghee on the idlis.
Mom gave a hopeless look 👀
Never mind. Burp !! Burp !!
I am still on diet BDW.
