- Will have to post on all 3 days with 2 weeks without fail
- Should take up 2 weeks of BM without fail. It can be any two weeks.
- Should follow the accepted theme all 3 days, meaning if you choose one topic like Rice, you should post all rice based recipes all 3 days.
- Should link to the Blogging Marathon page.
- Is expected to actively give feedback on others post.
Themes for BM #18 will be the following:
Since having this theme is to make sure my Kid's Delight event gets good entries, I thought it makes sense to have two themes based on the hosting time.
Kid's Delight - Evening snacks/tiffin (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)
Kid's Delight - Warm foods to beat the rain (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)
Kid's Delight - Warm foods to beat the rain (17,18,19 & 24,25,26)
Else if you plan to take part in Week 3 & 4, then you are best to make some delicious warm dishes to beat the rain!. While we have had food to chill the summer, this edition asks you to make those dishes that warm up for Rain. So make any dish that any kid would love to eat during rains, it can be a warm soup, an interesting snack, anything that makes it great to watch the rain and enjoy!
July Edition of Kid's Delight, starting from 16th will be hosted by Pradnya
As the name says, this is anything that's basic in making. Like all those spice powders, whole spice mixes, ground pastes etc. This can only have those ingredients that are used for seasoning/ tempering. Not like in Spice powder that are also called as Gun powders, that's mixed and consumed. The spice powders can be something that enhances or gives taste but not the complete dish in itself.
Stuffed dishes can have anything that's stuffed and cooked. It can be sweet, savory, main course, breads. Anything with something stuffed within! Again the same type is not allowed. Meaning you can't make only stuffed parathas for all 3 days. You can add these stuffed things in a gravy, sweet or main course.
We all love one pot meal. And Indian cuisine is rich with so many varieties that we can make in terms of Biryanis, Pulaos and Mixed Rice varieties. So for this edition, please make a complete rice based dish that can be tagged as Biryani or a pulao or any of those innumerable mixed rice varieties. Curd Rice can't be tagged as mixed rice. You can't mix in pre cooked mixed and post. If you have cooked the masala or spice powder, it's all accepted. it can't be made with ready made powders like Tamarind rice mix etc.
Dry Vegetable Sautes / Sides
This can have any Vegetables made dry and served with a meal. This can't be the only serving dish but rather an accompaniment to the main course. Will be the Vepudus, thorans, Poriyals. And as I said it can't be liquid, only dry sautes.
Simple cake decoration ideas
Share your cake decoration ideas, you can show step by step or method to make frosting, fondant and just about anything that can be decorated over a cake.
Deep fried snacks made healthy by baking or steaming
Another interesting theme that makes you cook healthy dish. Make your typically deep fried dish into a low cal, healthy baked or steamed dish. Like making a Meddu vada in a Kuzhi paniyaram pan by not deep frying it. Your deep fried chips baked for a low cal recipe. I am sure if you think hard you can come up with various dishes that can be baked or steamed
This is accepted only for the 4th week and you can pick up 3 themes to do one per day.
