I'm so glad that just the way I have had a lot of sweethearts agreeing and coming my way to do guest posts for my blog, the same way I keep getting emails from fellow bloggers for guest posts. Seriously, as much as I love to do them, I find it difficult to really decide what to give them. When Avika, who blogs at "A Day Through My Life
" asked me for a guest post, I started running through my drafts to ensure that I would give her a sweet dish, which would be apt for the kind of person she is - yes, really sweet!!! I've loved the interactions I have had with her through email and FB and find her quite down-to-earth, with child-like innocence. Such people are so difficult to find these days and I sincerely feel that when you find them, cherish them!!!
What I went ahead and gave her is a really sumptious pudding, with a vegetable you may not associate with sweets! I first had this pudding at my umma's aunty's house and absolutely loved it. Even though I had no clue as to how to make it and my searches on google led to no result, my umma and me put our two little heads together to make this pudding for a large gathering. Nonetheless to say, it was a success. Nobody realized that it was tapioca biting in and finally they had to ask us to know the surprise.
To read more and the recipe, do hope on to the lovely Avika's space here
. Hope you enjoy the post! :)
