My Little one turns "2" today and Roti making
No Picture pleaseeeee...... I am not ready yet :)
She is down with a fever and I feel terrible.... Hope she feels better by evening for cutting her cake!!!
Time flies and we never know when kids grow up... I feel that it was just yesterday when the nurse brought her to me for the first time and she was cuddling into my hands, she had not even opened her eyes fully.... and now......
She wants to have what ever her big brother has, she want to be taught what ever he learns, she gets angry and possessive when her brother is paid attention, she slowly learns the poems, alphabets and even Hindi alphabets all by herself looking at her brother, she wants to eat by herself. She snatches the remote to watch cartoon, she slowly takes away his stuff and runs into the other room to get him annoyed:) and they both start fighting like two little lambs and finally she lands up crying as the survival of the fitest happens!!
The story does not end here though..... Will catch up later on this.
The Art of Roti Making
While in Mount Abu, I was lucky to get into the Brahma Kumaris Kitchen, where a big hall is just alloted for making " Rotis". During special events the Rotis are made for about 15,ooo to 20,000 people in the huge kitchen. Right from preparing the dough to the packing of the rotis, take a beautiful tour through this kitchen.
There are about 5 to 6 rows and in each row there are about 80 to 100 people helping to shape the rotis. I even spotted some kids who were helping take the rotis to the tava (hot pan) .
Rotis on the Tava!!
Not just a Tava...
and from the tawa to the alignment table which lay side to side..
The Ghee rotis are kept separately and the dry ones separate.
Packing and delivery...
While I was back home from US, I found some friends who made themselves very comfortable at my balcony.
