     The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. Dr. Suess    I cannot claim to be a voracious reader, but I do love reading.

That’s the time I would call to wish my mum and then again ,when we celebrate in May. Though I tried explaining to her why I wished her in May she never quite got it. For her Mother’s Day was just a couple of weeks before Easter and when she would get flowers, chocolates and gifts from my sister, brothers and sister in laws. This recipe is for my mum. She loved khandvi and finally I have got the hang of spreading the batter pretty evenly before it turns into…
