Hexagonal Oil Bowl

This small hexagonal bowl was given to our naani as a gift at the time of her wedding. She, then, gave this to our mum at the time of her wedding. Mum didn’t know what to do with it and started keeping oil in it to massage bhaiya when he was born. It was not in use ever since. Now, this is being used by Bunny’s naani (our mum) for the same purpose. We (darling sister and I) were not fortunate enough to meet our naani but she has been alive in our memories through the stories we have grown listening to. Believe me when I say we are extremely possessive about her and anything even remotely related to her.


Pancake is not an Indian dish. But then who doesn’t love Pancakes? First time i had Pancakes in a cafe in Bangalore in 2016. And i would find the recipe too difficult to try at home. But in this pandemic, when eating outside means inviting the virus, one has to try everything at home and be satisfied with that. Last thursday i was home alone and wanted to pamper myself. So i prepared my favourite Pancake. Generally i prefer oats pancake but this time i tried white flour. Below is the image of the Pancake i made, if you find interesting then scroll down to see the recipe.
