    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #161 GANESH CHATURTHI RECIPES Ganapati Bappa Moriya, Mangal Murti Moriya The whole of India will be chanting the above and getting ready for the Ganesh Chaturthi, Vinayak Chaturthi or Vinayak Chavithi festival.  To find out what the chanting actually means watch this video.

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: TYPES OF TEA   What is tea? Tea is the young leaves and buds picked from an evergreen shrub called camellia sinensis. All the different kinds of teas we know come from a specific species of camellia sinensis. There are so many varieties of tea out there that its gets really confusing which one is the best.

    Celebration Time I joined the #FoodieMonday#Bloghop group in the month of March when they were on their 31st theme.This week we are on our 50th theme…wow. Its time to celebrate. Celebration is usually with something sweet.The group decided on #Traditional Sweets. I decided to make an authentic Gujarati mithai (dessert), mohanthal. I get a bit nervous when I have to prepare traditional Indian sweets. I would have opted for easier traditional sweets like shiro(sooji halwa), lapsi, shrikhand, basundi, but I’ve already posted those. Had Mohanthal and Magas on my ‘to do list’. I decided on Mohanthal as I prefer that to magas. Before I go into explaining how to make mohanthal, I must tell you a bit about the #FoodieMonday#Bloghop group. Right now we are…

    Joy in everyones heart, smiles on their faces, a kaleidoscope of colors, festivities everywhere, homes spic and span, neighbors, friends and families exchanging gifts, the glowing warmth of the fairy or diya lights, a frenzy and chaotic kitchen making trays full and bowls full of food. Be it Diwali, Eid, Christmas or any festival, celebrations is equated with the most scrumptious dishes. Each festival has its own unique dishes that people make. For Eid celebration I made some seviyan. Seviyan, semiya payasam, vermicelli kheer, pudding or mithi sev as most Gujaratis call it, is prepared in different ways. Some roast the nuts and vermicelli , boil the milk and then add the roasted mixture. Some just add the vermicelli into the boiling milk and let it cook.…
