Day 5: Back to baking

My Day 4 post for the Marathon on my Citizen Matters blog here:

And on to Day 5 :). I didn't have much to write about, and then realized I had a couple of photos that I hadn't yet uploaded or shared so those it will have to be.

Baking is a favourite activity of mine, but I go through these major ups and downs of having days of crazy baking, or a complete lull. To break the monotony and also get tips from an expert, I decided to go for a baking workshop with Nandita Iyer of Saffron Trail at her lovely home in Whitefield. Getting a peek at her amazing terrace garden was an added bonus ;)

As expected it was great fun, and to keep the momentum going I got back and tried the cinnamon rolls right on the next day :).

    1. Thanks Ruth :). My trying to move to healthy baking and Whole wheat made me give up on baking for a while due to the challenges, so this one was completely unhealthy maida for a total feel-good result ;). It was organic, if that counts for anything.

  2. They look completely delicious. Great going. Dd you do them in a microwave or a regular OTG?

    1. Thanks Tulika :). This one's in an OTG, but if your microwave has a convection mode think you can make them in it without an issue.

  3. This looks delicious! And I am seeing it at dinner time, and it is doing wonders to my rumbling tummy, i.e., making it rumble more :P
