SAVORY CREPES / ADAI


It was Ramdhan yesterday.. A beautiful morning.. it was cold unusually. We had to leave for prayer by 8 o clock.. Since its been hot lately.. We were not dressed for breezy weather.. Eid prayer was in a park.. by the time we reached there.. clouds cleared and there was a bit of sun and became a very pleasant morning..  not cold not hot.. just perfect.. :) then later we went to one of our favorite restaurant for lunch and some shopping and treated ourselves :) This week is gonna pass so fast ... I feel that way when we get a break in week days.. :))


Well, I some how managed to Hop for the third week of " Blog Hop Wednesday ".. This brilliant idea by Radhika has become so successful and the most happening event on Blogosphere.. I should say :) We started off with a decent number of participants and we are so rapidly growing.. and wonderful to have more new friends to Hop. to check my fellow Hoppers ,click here.. now lets get hopping ..


For this week , I was paired with Priya Mitharwal.. very popularly know for her events.. She has a beautiful blog and God she is so efficient and manages the events and posts so well.. She never stops.. :) I had a wonderful time going through her blog.. and actually got so inspired with her work.. I chose Adai from her blog for this weeks hop.. 


Adai is a very healthy dish made with lentils and rice... its perfect for breakfast and will keep you power packed for a bright morning.. Its been a long time since I made this one and I almost forgot also.. thanks to Priya for reminding my very special breakfast.. Its very easy to make and I am sure you guys will love it.. :) Try em' and enjoy :)
