    Superlicious  Theme: Explore Latin American Cuisine BM #77 Week 2 Day 1 Its my first time to join the Blogging Marathon. I’ve known about this group for quite a while as I follow most of the members. However, all this time I did not join the group as I found that perhaps blogging 6 new recipes in a month on specific days is a big challenge. However, I’ve just taken the plunge and am going to try out the waters. So what is this group all about? Well, it was started by Srivalli who blogs at Cooking for all Seasons and at Spice your life. Members blog for any 2 weeks but for 3 consecutive days on chosen themes. For my first theme I chose…

    Where is my dahi?     Dahi is the hindi/gujarati word for yogurt. When my kids were growing up, yogurt was a part of their meal every single day. Plain yogurt or made into lassi but mostly good old plain home made yogurt . Dollops of the thick creamy goodness was eaten with dals, rice, khichdi and vegetable curry.If anything was slightly chilli for the kids a dollop of yogurt took care of it. While the boys were not too fussed about yogurt or lassi, my daughter on the other hand would throw a tantrum if she didn’t have her bowl of yogurt for lunch.She’d cry out “where is my dahi?” if we didn’t serve it with her lunch.    As you may have guessed…

    GUEST NO.8 ON THE BLOG     My 8th Guest on the blog is Mehwaesh Islam. Now you may be wondering how did an Islam enter the Patel family. Let me clear up the air for you. Mehwaesh is originally from Bangladesh, married to my best friend Daxa’s son. Daxa and family are more like family than friends to me.Paras, her son is like my son. So technically that makes Mehwaesh my daughter in law. I first met Mehwaesh during their wedding in Bangladesh. At first sight she appeared to me as a very sophisticated lady. On getting to know her, she is a very intelligent, caring, quiet and a friendly person. I had the opportunity to lunch with them at their quaint little home…

    Thinking healthy For the January Shhh Cooking Secretly challenge, my partner Veena Krishna Kumar of Veg Nation challenged me to cook with bell pepper (sweet pepper) and poppy seeds. I nearly asked her change the bell pepper. No don’t get me wrong, bell peppers are so versatile that one can make anything with them. The only reason I wanted her to change it was because hubby dear is allergic to them. Well, he doesn’t break out into a rash or anything but feels that it upsets his stomach. But I love bell pepper, so thought that I really don’t have to make something that he will like or appreciate; some day it has to be my choice too. So I decided to work with the given…
