Sajjige ~ Semolina Milk Pudding

Semolina Milk Pudding with brown sugar

Sajjige on blue

Today, I am guest posting for the lovely and super talented Monica Bhide.

I bet, you are thinking I got lucky.

Right, you are. I am living my dream.

If you let me, I might even say, it came true as if the universe conspired for this to happen. (May be I read too much of Paulo Coelho’s quotes).

What I want to say is, the thought was always there, somewhere in a tiny corner of my mind. But, this happened when Monica hosted a book giveaway (Imperfect spirituality) a short while back where I got lucky enough to win. On that pretext, mails exchanged and then, the moment presented itself. I was so kicked, I couldn’t stay put. Monica made it all look so easy.

And, she chose this simple yet classic dessert, among the three.

Sajjige [pronounced suh-gee-gay, kannada] is special to me. Don’t judge it by its simplicity or the ingredient being semolina. It is so dear, that I am serving it with a story and a chuckle on the side.

Now, head over to Monica’s space to read my Sajjige story and for this simple, comforting dessert recipe.

And, while you are there, no hurry. Take your time to browse and read her columns, stories and writings. She has magic in her words…

You’re still here? As you can see, I went berserk with the photo shoot (like I always do?!). Hope you enjoyed this picture overloaded post.
