I walked down memory lane when I saw pu siva's coconut bun. As a child, my mom got them from Iyengar bakery..I liked spicy food even then. Buns that were made with green chillies,curry leaves and cilantro. I used pusiva's recipe, but made a few changes not because of my imagination mind you, just because of the lack of ingredients. But yes, the plan was kaara buns and kaara buns it was. R & I were extremely happy with the results.
The recipe needed two cups of AP flour, I used 1.5 cups of AP and 1/2 cup of cake flour. I did not have butter, so used ghee instead. Reduce the amount of sugar if you plan to make it savory. chopped green chillies (4) and a tbsp of chopped curry leaves and cilantro made this buns just the way I remembered having them.
Hope you try her recipe and enjoy it as much as we did. Thank you.....

Symptoms : Expectations that the persons we are interacting with are exactly as we last saw them, and that their opinions, feelings thoughts are all eXactly in the same frame as we last left them.
Diagnosis: That inner smile or shrug with disdain from the the other person when you talk to them, or relate that was once a favorite joke or saying which does not elicit the same reaction as before and awaited.
Remedy : Need for an open mind to accept that mind evolves with time. As much as your brain and thoughts evolve so does rest of the world.
