litti and big heart

On a whim I mentioned I wanted to have Litti, at a friends  (Daniel and Noopur) place,

They no longer live with his parents, yes I am fond of their parents, and parents being parents went all out to make it happen.  Thank u dear uncle and aunt.  Takes a big heart to do it no doubt and am glad such people exist to make out days better.

Litti is a made by making a paste of ground chana+ lasun+ adrak + dhanya+ ajwine+ nimbu, which is inserted inside a layer of ground wheat, and roasted over slow fire (the fire has to be made by burning cow dung dried in sun.

Most of this is a hassle to get in a city, but then when did such little details stop folks who are set on making a son happy, falter.  Lucky we sure are.
