Nilla Wafer Banana Pudding

I had been itching to make this dessert since a couple of months...well finally got around making it over the weekend...I had it for the first time as a part of my HR management class diversity project. For the project, we had to pick chits which had names of our classmates and then the classmate would tell us to buy/ make a food item belonging to his/ her ethnic background...Our professor too took part in this project, and she made this for the entire class....From there I learnt that this pie is of african origin.....then next time my roomie made it coz we both loved this dessert...well so now finally I gave a shot at making it, and it was worth a try...this ones for u roomie :)
There are two versions of this recipe, Bake and No Bake...i liked the idea of no bake recipe, so I made that one (i didn't want the dish to have cooked bananas)....the method of making both of them is the same, the only difference is, in the baked version you make a meringue from egg whites and cover th…

RIP Verghese Kurien

Yesterday, Dr Varghese Kurien died at age of 90...
What I know about this man, is that he is FATHER OF WHITE REVOLUTION (Operation FLOOD)....
man whose vision created AMUL....made india the LARGEST PRODUCER OF MILK IN WORLD...
helped farmers in India achieve economic independence..

this post is a tribute to this great man...India thanks you for what you have done....you will always be remembered for your contribution.....

Dr Kurien, you can smile from heavens above every time someone relishes amul butter, cheese and ghee (my favourite amul products) knowing you are responsible for that smile, that familiar taste, of AMUL The Taste of India :) :)

Dear Wagon R
As I say goodbye to you, my heart is filled with memories...
my first car....the car with which I was identified with...
I still remember pappu (the parking ticket guy) ask mom dad,
"yeh toh madam ki car hai na??"
He even asked ravi that question :)
How I enjoyed fleeing from him without paying the money...
it was like the contest we had...
then there were some moments you witnessed,
when I would go on long drives with you, and
talk with you about what was going on with me,
my fears, worries, confusions...
we had some beautiful moments together..
just before I left for USA..
How we loved to drive on vasai roads
alone by ourselves..just us...
I didnt know how much I would miss you..
but you were there when I returned...
welcoming me in a big hug..
you saw me through the guy meeting spree..
how I would confide in you about who I liked and who I didnt..
and then finally you saw me off as a bride..
then we had some fun, driving in ahmedabad...
a twist here, a turn …
