This was the riddle sent to me when I opted for a box in Open sesame contest. It was such fun looking for the answer to the riddle. My first answer was wrong , but with the second clue,I could guess it right. But when I looked at the riddle after I knew the correct answer, the answer seemed to be so obvious. Yes it indeed is WHEAT. How did I miss it the first time!!!!
Wheat is a staple food in our Indian diet. I decided to bake a cake with indian flavours. I used jaggery and cardamom powder and the addition of nuts and dates added to the flavour.
