If Oggie is awake while I’m cooking I like to put him in his rocker and place him just outside the kitchen where he can watch me cook. This also gives us the opportunity to have deep conversations about the latest kitchen appliances, the ingredients I’m cooking with and smell some spices. Today when I decided to make these cauliflower and paneer pakodas I wasn’t sure about the kind of binder I wanted to use. So I held up two fingers and asked him to choose between chickpea flour and cornstarch. He very cutely grabbed both fingers with his hands and that ultimately ended up being a great choice.
