    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #211 NATURALLY COLOURFUL Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all my friends, family and followers. This year, there is an emphasis on natural and environmentally friendly ways of celebrating this important festival. That led to me think why not extend this to making naturally colored food as the next theme for FoodieModay Bloghop group. The members had to use naturally colorful ingredients to create their dish. Whether for the festival or not it had to be naturally colored. No adding artificial colors. I remember when my kids were young, I’d add naturally colored fruits and vegetables to make their meals more exciting. I’d add carrot puree, spinach puree, beetroot puree, turmeric powder, use strawberries, chocolate or cocoa powder, purple grapes, avocado, red cabbage, mangoes,…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #209 THINDI YENU What an interesting theme name you may be thinking. I too was completed intrigued by these two simple words. In Kannada yenu means what and thindi is snacks or tiffin. So its simply translates as What is for Snacks/Tiffin? Yeah! I now know a few more Kannada words 🙂 besides Namaskara and Thumba Dhanyanvadagalu. On a serious note, if hubby and I ever plan to stay in Bangalore for a longer period, learning Kannada would definitely be on my list.  This interesting theme was suggested by Aruna. She wanted us to prepare any breakfast dish which is very much a part of Karnataka. As I was browsing through her blog Vasu’s Veg Kitchen, I came across a very interesting…

    EVENT: SHHH COOKING SECRETLY THEME: MADHYA PRADESH CUISINE I remember watching the Incredible India advertisement on most of the Indian Channels and also BBC World and the phrase ‘ Hindustan Ka Dil Dekho’ was a very catchy one. The Dil described in the phrase is Madhya Pradesh. This state of rich culture and history literally lies in the middle of India and is rightfully called the heart of India. Its the second largest state surrounded by Rajasthan to the northwest, Gujarat to the west, Maharashtra to the south, Chhattisgarh to the southeast and Uttar Pradesh to the northeast. Before 2000 Chhattisgarh too was a part of Madhya Pradesh. Its the home to the world heritage site Khajuraho monuments, with breathtaking sculptures. Its also the home…

Imagine we’re over and done with Navratri, soon Diwali will be knocking on our doors and we’ll have barely just finished our Diwali celebrations and Christmas will be round the corner. And then the year ends. As fast as it came it will disappear just as fast and will only then be mentioned as history. What will I remember this year for? Well, so far its been an exciting year of meeting up with family and enjoying short holidays with them. In March had a great beach holiday with my side of the family, my dad, kaka, kaki, my fois, my brothers, bhabhis, niece. Then came the amazing albeit short holiday…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP  THEME:146TH BREAD RECIPES Breads have become such an important part of our daily diet, be it for breakfast with some butter, jam, eggs, as a sandwich for lunch, with our soups and sometimes some curries. As a snack we enjoy freshly baked rolls, buns, or snacks made out of bread. Bread is a versatile food. There have been several controversies out there indicating that bread is bad for health. I guess its only bad if you’re overeating. A couple of slices is fine. Today’s theme chosen by Kriti who blogs at Krispy Kadhai, is bread. Sometimes I like how members think. So Priya asked as to whether we have to bake a bread or make anything using bread? So that opened up a…
