Day 21 of my challenge and it is summer solstice, the longest day of the year for us.
A snack staple in every household while I was growing up. A snack made by the ladies of the household in the month of February in India when the sun was perfect and the weather was comfortable to get up early in the morning and prepare the snack. A snack that was healthy with no processed material and that which could be stored and used for a year. So what is this? It is vadaam.
A tasty snack that can be eaten alone or as a side dish. It is a lengthy process in which the rice flour is made to a paste and sun dried using a press.
The past few years my boy has been helping me do it and he is a pro in using the press. So today with me and Grandma helping him we made our first batch. I hope this is just the beginning of making the snack since these taste yummy during those cold winter days when the dried up snack is deep fried to go along with yummy mixed rice.
Today was fun, as I took pictures and kept uploading to my draft. I hope you all enjoy my day. A perfect rice snack when hunger strikes you.
Nine more days to go as I do different activities with my son this June. Thank you all for the support and see you all tomorrow with a different activity.
