Maida Burfi and A Celebration

Marriage is am important stage in a person's life. It is one of the happiest occasion always connected to celebrations and fun. The occasion is the start of a wonderful journey for the bride and the groom in which they know about each other and share their joys and sorrows and make each other's life happier. You will be wondering why I have come up with this topic. Aarthi of Yummy Tummy blog, who is a great blogger friend is getting married next week. I would like to wish Aarthi and Satheesh A Very Happy Married Life on this day.To celebrate some of her friends including me are trying out some recipes from her space. I tried out her maida burfi recipe and it came out very delicious. I did some changes to the recipe and the result was so nice. My daughter and nephew enjoyed this sweet treat. When I introduce a new sweet to my daughter, I usually tell her a known name. If she likes it then I will give her the original name of the sweet. So I told her that the sweet is mysorepak (which she likes the most) and as the colour was yellow, I could easily deceive her into eating it. Then after she told that the sweet is nice, I told her the real name. As she liked it I am quite happy. Thanks Aarthi for the lovely recipe.

                     but here are the million wishes that you remain eternally bonded.
