If you like to make wadas dipped in soy yogurt, then soak them in water within half an hour of frying as they hold better and do not break. Squeeze the access water out. Then add them to the yogurt.

I usually check the weather. When I saw that the temperature is going to be around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, I felt the urge to make a cold smoothie with fresh washed blackberries, almond milk, coconut milk, cardamom and confectioner's sugar for my family. It was an experiment and I wasn't sure but the smiles after the first sip showed me that it was a good attempt.

Kanji is made in ceramic or glass containers, in the sun. It takes about a week to get the right fermentation for carrot kanji here, in Seattle. We don't always have sunlight in the North west and so the flavors can be mild.
It has a distinct, pungent, sour taste usually made in northern India during winters. Adding a little beetroot can give the right color of black carrots usually found in India. Every now and then I do see dark-colored carrots at PCC and Whole Foods which would be ideal to make this drink.
