Tricolor special for Republic Day of India

Celebrating India's 58th Republic day!!!


Note: Done by my lil' one with little help from me.

Flag made of badam/almond paste

My entry for Pooja's Theme of the week,Indian flag made of badam.The recipe is similar to the one i used for this melting hearts.Here i used 3 different colors to get the flag.The middle ashok chakra was cut using a water bottle cap and lines using toothpick..:)).




Tri color Pasata Salad

My second entry for Pooja's Theme of the week is this tricolor pasta salad.Very easy and quick salad.

Ingredients

Tricolor pasta - 1 cup (cooked as per package instructions)
Cherry tomatoes - 5-10 (sliced into halves)
Carrot - 2tbsp ( julienned)
Onions - 1/4 cup(sliced)
Ranch dressing - as needed
Cheese - for garnishing(anykind and optional)

Method

Combine cooked pasta,veggies and coat this with ranch dressing.Garnish with any kind of shredded chesse.




Tips:Rubbing almond oil is good for dark circles around eyes.You can store almonds in a ziploc bag in the refrigerator for a long time.
