This post is a real celebration of Friendship.
Let me start with the story behind the post first :-
I got this recipe from a dearest aunty, who I lovingly address as my Chef Guru. Madhabi Aunty is a great cook, there's magic in her hands...whatever she cooks , tastes a mouthwatering Wow! To a greater extent it is because she cooks with a magic ingredient- Love; her love for cooking and not just cooking but cooking FOR her near and dear ones makes all the difference and then she has also perfected the art of cooking through her frequent and interesting experiments in the kitchen.Whenever you meet her,you'll get something interesting to learn about cooking ranging from an idea to a new recipe.She's indeed a Living Cookbook. :-)
Also, I would like to describe how I got this recipe from her.
I knew that she'll be sending the recipe but I also knew that she was recovering from a recent surgery on her left arm,so I was not expecting it so soon.
It so happened that last Wednesday I read an article about an investment broker cum baker in ET and while reading about his passion and love for baking , I got transported to my own world of baking and started dreaming of baking a cake when Madhabi Aunty's oats and banana cake came into my mind as I started thinking of what to bake and it was all so momentary that the next moment I found myself getting into some official work. And you won't believe, as I came back to my desk during lunch time, I saw I have few whatsApp msgs on my mobile and there IT was!-The recipe! :-) Yes! My happiness knew no bounds at that moment.It was as if the whole universe conspired to make my dream come true and that too so soon!!!! At times , you really get lucky or may be there really is something to special connections.
So, when I saw the recipe , I had made up my mind that I'll try this one for Friendship Day and here is what it turned out to be- Simply Yum! :-)
