  10. Hi Nupur,
    I have 2 guesses..
    1. Your favorite sweet potato or yam.
    2. Tofu slices.
    The batter sure has red pepper flecks in it. And the sesame is for deco only. :)

  12. Hey N, Happy new year to you, V and Dale.
    I am never right with these things but here are my guesses - don't know why but I feel the main ingredient is starchy so sweet potato? Or maybe its pumpkin or some squash? And last try bread? I am sure you must be laughing by now :-D

  23. Dale is soooooooooooooo cute! Totally, totally heart him :). The stuff in the platter looks like aloo-bhajiya to me, but the presence of til suggestes that it might be something else :-D. I'll wait till Sunday night ;).

  28. Nupur,
    I'm no good at these guessing games, so I won't even bother, but of course, I HAD to say THANKS for those pictures of Dale. Those fancy poses are just too much! I guess his dramatic instincts and ambitions are still going strong in St Louis?!

  40. Happy New Year, Nupur, lovely girl. Doggy Dog looks so comfy.

    I can spot some sesame seeds, I would guess it is a savory cookie, and it should be something weird and un-Indian, so I would go for cheese. But that was probably a silly guess.

  41. Hi Nupur, These really seem to be melting cookies.. Will love to try them.

  42. I think it is kakdi.. cucumber,, is that it?
