Rice Vadas and some Reflections

By Mridula

Anjali and Me travel on the same bus to office for the last 2 years. In the office bus no one ever talks to anyone. Yet we became friends and slowly it developed into one so good that both of us value it a lot. I know exactly when to expect what from Anjali. She knows me well too and advices me to be positive always.

Sometimes we have breakfast together at work but when thats not always possible, I want her to taste some specialties if I'm carrying any in the box and she cringes when I try to feed her in the bus. I love to see that expression! Oh I remember those jack fruit appa had everyone sniffing in the bus.

All my friends tell me I am a mature girl but Anjali is the only one who feels I am still a kid! Yet why does she call me grandma?

Oh that reminds me, I am here to share a grandma's recipe made by my Aunt on Ugadi, it is the rice vadas.


2 cups rice flour
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
water to make the dough

Mix all the ingredients with enough water to make a soft dough. Keep it aside for at least 1/2 hour.

Later pinch of small balls of dough and shape in to thick vadas.

Fry in hot oil. Drain and remove into a plate.

You are invited to the feast!
