    EVENT: SHHH COOKING SECRETLY THEME: KERALA CUISINE It is truly sad that Mother Nature can create so much destruction in a beautiful part of the world. Kerala had its share of disaster when it got flooded due to excessive amount of rainfall. It is believed that it was the worst flooding in over a century in this state that is known as God’s Own Country. Many people died and about a million had to be evacuated. I cannot image what they must have gone through to lose their homes, to leave places they are familiar with and to lose loved ones. It is believed that it will take nearly 2 years for Kerala to recover from all the damage that the floods caused. It will…

    EVENT: SHHH COOKING SECRETLY THEME: KARNATAKA CUISINE For the month of August the theme was Karnataka cuisine and I realized that though I lived in Bangalore, what’s now called Bengaluru for 4 years, I didn’t get to experience so many dishes that are famous in Karnataka. As a non South Indian I usually stick to the more comfortable dosas, idlis, vadas, sambhars. My neighbor on occasions would share with me crispy maddur vadas. I’ve tasted bisi bele bath once. Next visit to Bangalore, I’m definitely going to try out more of the local cuisine. For this month my partner was the friendly and humble Aruna who blogs at ãhãram. I love her blog because its got quite a few traditional recipes especially from the Andhra…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #157TH ONAM RECIPES I must admit though I’ve been blogging for quite a number of years, I’ve yet to try out so many recipes. The list is endless. India itself has so much to offer. Each state or each festival has its own cuisine. My knowledge of South Indian cuisine was limited to idlis and dosas before I started participating in various groups. Through the numerous exciting  themes that the FoodieMonday group has offered so far, its made me go searching on the world wide web, fellow bloggers blogs and sometimes recipe books to make something that fits the theme. Onam is one of them. I’ve heard about Onam but have actually not bothered to find out more about the festival. The…

    EVENT: FOOD BLOGGERS RECIPE SWAP – No.4 Food Bloggers Recipe Swap is a group of food bloggers who prepare a dish from a blogger’s blog. The group initiator Amber pairs up the participants. We then decide what we want to make from our partner’s blog. Usually we add a slight twist of our own or cook it the way we like but the main ingredients remain the same. At the end of the month we share our recipe link on the FB page. What is idli? Idli is a famous South Indian dish made from fermented rice and white lentil(black gram) batter. It is steamed and considered one of the most healthiest food. It can be served with sambhar, a lentil curry and coconut chutney,…

    Delicious Dumplings    A visit to Phoenix Mall, Bangalore is like a dazzling visit to Fairyland. Only thing is that nothing is free, you need oodles of money to buy whatever you want. I remember when I was studying in India in the 70s, nothing much was available and relatives and friends would have a long list of things they’d want us to bring for them from Kenya. Tables have turned, everything is available in India right from Rin soap to Audis. For a girl who comes from the supposedly second biggest city in Kenya, the malls are like paradise for me. Visiting Foodland is a foodie’s dream but unfortunately everything from lettuce to wheat pasta is overpriced. Eating healthy is an expensive habit. Wonder…

Last for this event, promise;) Well, has to be as we are nearly coming to the end of our Protein Rich Dishes for the Mega Blogging Marathon. The other group that I’m presenting this recipe to is Shhh Cooking Secretly, started by Priya of Priya’s Versatile Recipes. From the month of September, the group is traveling round India state wise. No we’re not on an actual journey (but that does sound good) but we’re going to cook from different States of India. The first one is Andhra Pradesh. When Shobha Keshwani suggested this theme I was really excited…

    Bookmarked       My usual routine before I start blogging is to read recipes from fellow bloggers that I follow. Some have a story to tell, some go straight to the recipe. I browse through the ingredients. Usually I get to learn about a new ingredient, or a twist to an existing recipe or favourite foods make me drool. Desserts, cookies, breads, cakes, muffins make me sit up more straight. I note down the recipes I want to try and the list just seems to get longer. So I am slowly making an effort to go through the list and actually try them out. Not all recipes turn out well, some I need to make according to the likes and taste of the family. My…
