Dessert time! Its been a while I haven’t made any sweets or desserts at home, may be because i was not craving for it. 😬. But, when i want to have sweets, then i am on makinh mithai spree and you will find me making all the possible mithais at home and enjoy. Starting with Kesar Rabdi today. Its been a while i haven’t visited my hometown in UP and i was missing the best ever authentic rabdi without ant condensed milk or khoya, from the halwai near to my grand pa’s place. Though i cannot go there to eat it now, what better it would be than make it at home and enjoy. . . . #sweets #desserts #glutenfree #walkwithindia #foodtalkindia #cubesnjuliennes #traditionalfood #indianrecipes #indianfood #ethnicfood #bbcggoodfood #tastefullysimple #still_life_gallery #huffposttaste #goodfoodindia #rabdi #indiansweets #vscofashionfood #vzcomade #nikond750 #throughherlens

A Century old #Vada!!! #MaddurVada The vada had its origin at #Maddur Railway Station on the #Bengaluru – #Mysuru route In 1917 Ramachandra Budhya, who ran a Vegetarian Refreshment Room (VRR) at Maddur railway station, was at his wit’s end as the next train was about to arrive in a few minutes and he didn’t have enough time to prepare the pakodas that he usually served to the passengers. He calculated the time it would take the train to arrive at the station, slapped all the ingredients at his disposal into a thin patty and fried it. Thus the Maddur vada, which has been the preferred snack of railway passengers across Karnataka and other states, was invented. Budhya, hailing from Kundapura, had moved to Maddur a few years back and had been given permission to run the VRR at the station. He was selling idli vadas to the hundreds of passengers of the many trains running between Mysuru and Bengaluru. On that summer day, he introduced the new snack to commuters and the rest, as they say, is history.
