I feel like a war soldier after a hard day, and many a times the following morning as well, especially when it comes to dragging myself to a day with a time crunched routine and toddlers smile happens to be the only motivation! I m sure to receive as much empaties from the many toddler moms reading this! With a lot written on the significance of a filling nutritious breakfast every morning,the busy routine that surrounds me triumps and I skip  the most important meal of the day. Just to keep my energy levels at par , this is my occassional cheat breakfast that I munch on, to give me the punch to kick start my day. Traditionally Aussie NZ , these cookies are surprisingly easy and eggless too, with a shelf life of more than 10-12 days, when stored in airtight jar.Originally they were made for Australian and New Zealand war soldiers by their mothers and wives, when they were away for longer periods of time. The cookies had an extended shelf life as compared to the other versions and were nutritious served as an instant source of energy. This story made me go back to the “Maa ke Laddoo” story( Indian moms make pot full of ladoos for their children when they are away) …Indian or International..Mothers indeed are the same…warm and loving.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
