Getting really bored with rain…..:-).Always feel like singing ..”Rain Rain go away …..come again another day …wanna go out and swim….not to gain staying in but to drain some weight”.Last Sunday was so boring it rained for 2 continuous but luckily Hubby had some indoor badminton matched so could spend time there and it was more fun as he won the semi finals….waiting for finals :-). Now going for matches I believe food should always be with you ….you never know how long you have to stay. The previous me would definitely depend on the available food joints there but at times now I do feel like carrying some stuffs…(at times but :-)). Now trying to be a little more focused on vegetarian dishes.I decided to pack some sooji ka Dhokla ……Dhokla is basically a Gujarati dish .It can be made of Sooji /Semolina or Besan.It is also know as Khummum Ingredients: Sooji/Semolina 2 cups
