I know this place has been very quiet for last few days. First the camera had some issues, then technical issues with the site and when they got resolved, I was down with pretty severe cold. All I wanted to do was sleep!. But I have been very active with my other blog art Campus. Finally I am making some time for the crafts – which I love so much but never had time to explore more!.
The temperatures here are dropping very fast. It is not possible to step outside without jackets. I was hoping we will have few more days to play outside, but we are staying indoors for now. That also means I am making a lot of soups. If anyone is interested, I will post them here.
Here is a simple recipe for Corn Flakes Chivda. A chivda can’t be simpler than this. I made this because I had to use up a large batch of Kellog’s corn flakes that we bought but could not finish. It was nearing expiration and I had to think of something. Since I usually like to make a hot breakfast every morning, corn flakes or cereals hardly get finished. V had bought this bag when I was in India and he could not finish it. These corn flakes were slightly sweetish, any corn flakes can be used. All my friends that tasted this loved it.
