Dear Satya
Wonderful bake and the detailed description...but I am off baking for many years now :-(
I am really floored reading your comment at my post on Kanika...
Actually anyone having any connection with Orissa makes me emotional even if I havent gone there since 1982 or so.
I was born and brought up in Athgarh,and had schooling there . I spent only 1 year in Ravenshaw college before going for engineering in Calcutta..
Really The ganesh puja, saraswati puja bhoji is still lingering in my mind even after many decades.
Try this Kanika ( reduce sugar from 1/3 to 1/6th or even lower) and trust me , it will take you back to your orissa days ...
Have a nice day
