Ambrosia is food of the gods, or better still, in Indian context...Amrtham or Elixir of life..But then food is divine and something which gives strength and energy..Right? However my title has nothing to do with all these...It is a tribute to the culinary art which every woman is blessed with....Why else was my first attempt at making a sweet dish honoured as Ambrosia?????? So..Ambrosia it is!!!!!!!!
