Welcoming rains

On Saturday, S and I prepared Aamras and Attu(Wheat dosa) at home. Four weeks back, My grandma had sent the flour by courier since she was doubtful if we’d be able to make good Attus using the packaged flour. But, since we didn’t get time on the last few weekends, we thought we’d postpone it. Finally, we made it on Saturday. Thankfully, S managed to get good mangoes from the market though the rainy season has commenced and summer has ended.

Along with Attus, Aamras, we also made Onion Pakodas and Thesa(Mirch Chutni). The food was extremely tasty. After the meal, we rested for a while and then rushed to the movie theater. We watched the movie, “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”. The movie was quite confusing, nevertheless we enjoyed it.

On our way back to the parking space, it was drizzling and the weather was lovely. The nice aroma emanating from the ground was mesmerizing. It felt as though we had been outside after a long long time πŸ™‚
