From Chitra Amma's kitchen to mine

Have you ever seen something and then craved it so badly that you set out to make it even though you do not have enough of the main ingredient?

That's what happened to me once I saw Dibs' recipe for Bournvita fudge. The fact that I had only a teeny weeny bit of maida in the pantry did nothing to deter me from trying it out. I used half a cup of maida and half a cup of besan and proceeded with the recipe. This is an absolutely fantastic dish which is guaranteed to disappear even before it is completely cooled. I heated it a little longer than Dibs suggests because I wanted it to be of burfi consistency. Despite using the tiniest glass in my home to measure out the ingredients, I was able to turn out a decent number of fudge squares.
This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you Dibs.

Jayashree - That was very quick! WOW! Congratulations! Your fudge turned out lovely! Besan is a great twist ...Bournvita Mysore Pak? :-)))). I like the digitial 'black & white to colour' effect in the snap!

i love it when u mix such things to make something. such things = bournvita, complan, marie biscuits, oats, random stuff in the kitchen whose main purpose is something else.

really love the idea :)
