Maida Burfi/Maida Cake

                                                                     Maida burfi or maida cake is one of the easiest sweets in my moms generation.she used to make it so often whenever we had a sweet craving.My grandmom used to put khoa or khoya to soften the burfi.I thought about it and decided to make it with condensed milk.I tried the recipe and it came out pretty well as a soft burfi.The kids loved it and what else do i want???

Oma Podi/Om Podi/Sev

                                                                Oma Podi is the simplest thenkuzhal variety.My mother and my aunts used to make oma podi and rawa ladoo the first thing for diwali.The omam or the ajwain makes it special.the omam gives a special falovour and taste to the thenkuzhal.Do not add too much of omam as it might taste bitter.Mix the flour in batches otherwise the Omapodi will turn very dark.You can use this omapodi while making mixture too!!!

Badam Katli

                                                                       Badam Katli is mine and my daughter's favourite sweet.I decided to make for this diwali.It is very similar to kaju katli except that badam(almonds)have a skin to be peeled so the process is a little longer.Now a days you even get almond powder in some of the countries so if you get it the process can be a little easier and simple.
