Gothumai Rava Payasam (Cracked wheat pudding) -A small contribution for BloggerAid's Cookbook



Some of you might have come across this BloggerAid's fund raising program.I came to know about this from Sanghi and Lubna's blog.Thanks to them for letting me know.
Though,I'm not fit enough to submit a recipe for an International cookbook..I just did it for the satisfaction of contributing one simple recipe from my  behalf for a good cause..

When I see people waste food,I think about the people who suffer from hunger .We are all fortunate that we have choices of food but there are people out there who struggle solving the basic issue of filling up their stomach.
BloggerAid has come up with a great idea in helping the Children's meals.
'Food is our medium and alleviating world famine is our mission' is their motto.A plan to publish a cookbook with the recipes submitted by the bloggers all around the world.100% of the profit from the sales of the cookbook will be directed to the School meals, a program of The World Food Programme (WP),the United Nations frontline Agency.
You don't have to be a BloggerAid member to submit a recipe.It gives immense satisfaction to be a part of this inspiring project.For more details,check out here.
I thank the founders of this program Val,of More than burnt Toast, Ivy,of Kopiaste of Greek Hospitality and Giz,of Equal Opportunity Kitchen for coming up with such a heart warming project.

After much thinking,I settled down in making Cracked Wheat pudding for this cookbook.Long before ,my aunt was telling me to post this recipe.I just forgot then and today I remembered this wonderful sweet dish.A healthy one which tastes brilliant.This can be prepared so easily like you make any other payasam.
As per the rules,I shouldn't reveal the ingredients and recipe of this dish now.The whole recipe will be posted once the book is published.
I'm displaying few of the pictures of the pudding.


'Children are the future..Invest in Children'..So come and be a part of this ambitious project!
