You can read about all the history, the thought process that's gone in everything in one place in the BM#18 intro
- Should take up 2 weeks of BM without fail. It can be any two weeks.
- Will have to post on all 3 days with 2 weeks without fail
- Same theme can't be taken by one blogger.
- 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.
- Mandatory reading and commenting on fellow participating member.
As the focus of this blog is all for Kids, I thought Kid's delight event will be the most apt one. So let's party by bringing in kid approved dishes. You are welcome to bring on any course of the meal. However only Vegetarian entries are accepted.
Should only be dals/lentils in liquid form, either served with Indian Bread or Rice. Can't have dals cooked in different form like Adai, dosa or as dry sautes (eg: Paruppu Usli type of dishes can't be made). All three days should highlight one type of dal. For example, if you are cooking with Toor dal, you can't showcase only toor dal as the main ingredient for the other two days. However you can cook with combination with other dals/Vegetables and it can be of any cuisine.
Cooking with Onions
I can't imagine cooking without onions. Even though we use Onions extensively in our cooking, this theme focus on making the Onions as the main ingredient. The dish can be of any course of meal, can be from any cuisine. However the only condition is the main focus should be Onions.
Recipes with Spreads
The recipes should necessarily have a spread over it. It has to be a complete dish, you can feature recipes for both the base and the spread. Or just the spread, or the base. The picture should showcase with the spread over the dish. It can be any course, sweet or savory. Only condition is the dish has has be a spread. It can be folded and served but not cooked as folded as in stuffing. Now like Puffs that have spreads over it but is stuffed and cooked.
Low Fat/Low Cal Break fast
As the name says it has to be a breakfast that is low fat or low calorie.
Ideas on Food Garnishing, Kitchen Setup and Storage, Style your pantry.
With popular demand, I got this theme forward. Under this theme you can showcase food garnishing styles, it can't be just one method, you should atleast showcase 3 or more styles. It can have tips, ideas. But each post should have pictures.
Next is about how you store your kitchen ingredient. Share your secret formula in storing dals, other ingredients etc. It can be anything with storing, etc. more in terms of kitchen related. Again you can showcase pictures
Style your pantry. Show us how you have styled or managed your kitchen space. If there is some method in sorting different appliances you can share with your readers.
Ganesh Chaturathi Special
As the theme says, we are celebrating Ganesh Chaturathi. So let's please the Lord with his special dishes. You can showcase your traditional cooking done on this day. This needs to have step by step pictures.
Special Theme - BM Paired - Do three weeks and for the 4th week you get to do create dishes from your BM friends.
The special for this edition will be the pairing two BM bloggers and each cooking from the other. Again the dishes selected should be from the 20th edition.
