Getting Ready for India. Posted on January 15, 2013 by Swamiji

We had a classic Indian dinner, idli and sambhar, for the first time in the Ashram. A yummy surprise, made from a prepackaged mix so it was really easy. Idli is a puffy little rice-lentil cake, mildly flavored that is perfect for dipping in the sambhar, a spicy lentil soup with vegetables. We had both!

She made uttapa as well, a pancake-like item made out of the same rice-lentil batter, with cilantro and some grated veggies in it. Here it is, cooking on the griddle, plus you have both plates – uttapa in the front and idli in the back.

We’re all ready for breakfast in Ganeshpuri!

With love, Swami Nirmalananda
