A  delicacy from the roots of my culture,a recipe that typifies my cultural cuisine, ie  Assamese cuisine. This is one of the staple recipes cooked in many households back in Assam. While the combo might sound like a blending of an odd pair, yet having been...

Years back, as a child, born into a rice eating culture, I never envisaged rotis to be made at home, while they were to be relished only at restaurants, for the tedious part of its being made, so forget inventing Atta (wheatflour) laddus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laddu )…What are they?
