Potato and Broccoli Crunchies

Hola people!

A happy holi to all of you.  I hope that all of you have a colorful year! A holi party was hosted by some family friends and I just got back. My hands are red, hair is purple,  my clothes have a whole lot of colors. I look as vibrant as ever!  As a child it was imperative that you had these color stains, when you went to the school, next day. Just to show-off what a wonderful holi you had! I think I still am going to show-off but this time I am the teacher!

I was just thinking how my life would be if my hair was curly. I would be so proud to show-off my locks. My hair is painfully straight and no amount of curling, styling, spraying helps! Looks like the outside of my head is just like the inside- Stubborn!

Probably I should just let my hair be as it is. Straight. But sometimes you want a change. Curly with just the right amount of frizz. Whatever.

Talking about change, sometimes, one needs to have broccoli, and not in the form of soup or salad.

There are days when you should totally totally eat something deep fried- without feeling guilty. If you agree with me then a mental hi-five!

And if you like potatoes- Hi-five again!

Let’s think about the classic combinations. Apple and Cinnamon. Strawberry and chocolate. Garlic and pepper. ummm garlic, pepper and mint?! May be! Why not?!

By the way the best way to cook potatoes is to microwave them in a plastic bag, with the skin for about 6 mins. You will get perfectly cooked potatoes.

I am looking for a perfect crunch. Like real crrrrruuuuunnnnnch! You get it?

Open pantry. No bread crumbs. No cornflakes. No cornflour! What do we do?

Rice flour and puffed rice powder! Let’s give it a shot!

You like cheese? Lets add cheese!

Something inside tells me that you are totally going to love this!
