Edada / Safed Dhokla

I have always loved making friends ,be it the train or the boutique anywhere and everywhere somehow I get friendly. Two of my friends are from the time my son was in K.G .The mothers used to meet in school and slowly we have become the best of friends. This is the recipe which has been taught to me by one of them. They both are a big support to me where blogging is concerned. Thanks  Anar and Beena!!

Coming to my younger  friends.(….well I have friends of my daughter’s age too…)
These Edada’s have been specially cooked for  another  dear friends..she called me the other day to give me some good news..and she felt like eating these Edadas….how I wish I could send them….but ……distance!!....this is her virtual treat!!May her life be full of happiness and God Bless her with a healthy baby.

Since this post is dedicated to Friendship I decided to announce the winner of The Blog Anniversary Giveaway  which was celebrated by Chocolate Shahi Tukda with Orange Sauce .This post  has been long overdue!!
