Well because the Cassata ice-cream is supposed to have a base layer of sponge cake, topped with nutty pistachio ice cream and a rum and raisin one with vanilla and a strawberry ice-cream. I have, for many months now, baked breads and cakes because I want to and then packed them off to send to friends or co workers. My family eats some, but they want to be supportive and end up not eating any because I can’t. So off it goes. While sharing every now and then is not an issue, it seemed like a pointless exercise to cook or bake something that no one in the family was really going to eat.
Kadhi is a soup like, yogourt based curry. It is often served with Khichdi although some people prefer to drink it on its own. It is another great vegetarian option (as long as you are okay with milk products). When I have a bad cold, I like to make my kadhi extra spicy and drink it to clear my sinuses. I also think the turmeric in it helps since turmeric is supposed to have strong anti-inflammatory properties.
