Hello hello,

“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” – John Ruskin

You know what, I am certainly one of those people whose communication either starts with climate. There would be something about the weather in my talks. It’s because I find the weather here so magical and mesmerizing.

I talk about the weather even when I talk to my Mom which is quite often. And my initial question to her has been eternally like this: “How’s the weather there?” And surprisingly, she always tells me everything in details and after her answer, she continues the conversation with the same question. “How’s the weather there?” And then I tell her about it and then we move on to our regular woman-talk. 🙂

So, guys, the point of mentioning this to you was that I wanted to ask you, “How’s the weather in your part of the world?” 🙂 I know you guys would undoubtedly let me know in the comments, and I also know that you would ask me the same. So before you ask, I will tell it to you anyway. 🙂

Climate was pretty good during the last two days — sunny and little warm. It was so warm yesterday that little ‘A’ even asked if we could go for a beach picnic, and I said yes to her for the picnic today, without checking the weather forecast. My bad, now she wouldn’t stop nagging, and I would have to answer her 100s of times, and she won’t stop asking ‘why’ every single time. And to make it up, I would have to bribe her with something she likes.

But hey, I was talking about the weather. Right? So, now it’s cold, dark and rainy again, pretty close to 10°C, and it’s gonna be like this today and tomorrow. Because it’s cold, so I really wanted something healthy and warm for breakfast. Thus I decided to end up with this healthy, warm and delicious oats in the form of Dhokla.

If you know someone who doesn’t like oats, then serve this ‘oats rava dhokla’ to them without telling that there are oats in this dish. They won’t be able to figure out that this Dhokla has oats. I have personally tried it, it works. 🙂
