Cooking is always therapeutic and when you try some new recipe and it comes out good…it makes you very happy. This week we are here back with Blog Hopping and it has been so much fun till now, I am paired with Jyothi of Pages and i am glad that i discovered her blog. She not only tries to post recipes but has posted many book reviews as well. I am a huge reader and love reading books so it was great to read some reviews on her blog.
This is a very healthy recipe and loved the taste of it. The taste is very similar to Haandvo and is best eaten when fresh out of the oven. I had seen this recipe some months back on Anjum Anand Tv show and wanted to prepare it from that time but had forgotten to make a note of the recipe. These Savoury Semolina Slices taste great and with the addition of ground almonds it imparts a very nutty flavor as well. A great snack option which is packed with veggies.
Ready to go into the oven.
This Post will fulfill two ongoing events, one is Blog Hopping and the 2nd is for Magic Mingle where this months magic ingredients are “Ginger And Almonds” So i tweaked the recipe to a bit so that i can add Almonds and ginger to it as well.
