Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

As per the legend, the creation of chocolate chip cookies was a complete accident.  One day while making cookies, Ruth Graves Wakefield ( inventor of the Toll House brand of chocolate chip cookies) realized she was out of an ingredient for the recipe she was using. She had run out of baker’s chocolate, so she substituted it with a semisweet chocolate bar from Nestle.

The small pieces of chocolate only softened and the chocolate chip cookie was born.

Paratha Recipe

Paratha

This one is a very simple recipe. Just combine everything together and roll out! :)

Recently, I heard a friend mentioning, how her parathas don’t turn out well. How I do it is – I heat my pan real hot while I roll out the paratha.. Add the rolled out dough, to the hot pan, and simmer the gas. Increase the heat as I flip it over. Repeat the flip, while keeping the flame constant. I add the ghee / oil second time around (flip).
