My cutie bird :)




When I was making Idiyappam, I had some rice paste left in the Idiyappam press towards the end which I didn't feel like discarding. I always used to love playing with chapatti dough as a child. My mom used to purposely leave a ball of dough for me whenever she made rotis. So this time I decided to revive those memories and made this cutie bird out of the rice dough. Tinted its beaks with some red food color and used mustard seeds for the eyes :)

Very cute one! My granny used to make such shapes with the kozhukkatta dough. If you re interested, buy gum paste from craft stores and make such shapes, will look good on cakes :)
