Certainly not the two minute disaster, I said when my grand children wished to know what they would be having for breakfast.
Then is it going to be idlis, the bland southindian stuff? Mocked the younger of the two.
Come on, don’t dismiss something that constitutes healthy breakfast, I tried to reason.
Is it going to be the yummy masala dosa? the older one asked.
I thought for a while and said, something even better which I am sure both of you would just love and ask for more.
Mamma, then I am sure it’s pizza my favourite with capsicum and carrot topping, guessed the boy.
Yes, you are absolutely right but it’s going to be an Indian version of pizza which is not only healthy but tasty as well, I assured the two brats who were under the impression all western cuisine was the best in this world and made my way to the kitchen.
Mamma, absolutely yummy, exclaimed the two while biting into small pieces of oothappam I made with a sprinkling of shredded capsicum and grated carrot as topping.
Didn’t I say you children will like it, I said congratulating myself for my ingenuity.
Mamma, please make this Indian version of pizza hereafter as it tastes better than its original, entreated both kids.
I breathed a sigh of relief which saved me the bother of ordering pizza every other day not to speak of the cost involved on the unhealthy stuff.
