Talking about non stop blogging, on top with a weekly theme, it's been a fantastic 15 day stunt! I have got to read about so many traditional recipes in the last 15 days, that it was mind blowing. So many of them have taken such pains and efforts to do a wonderful theme. I am glad to be having a group of such enthusiastic and dedicated bloggers. Thank you friends.

Always cooking complicated dishes, with so many steps and so many ingredients that's called for, it sometimes becomes really hard to think of those simple, yet delicious dishes that can be done with just 5 ingredients. That's exactly why Pavani thought this would be a great theme for the current Kid's Delight edition.
She is calling for ideas that will be kid approved foods, and can be anything from breakfast foods to desserts. The only condition being that the finally dish should be made with only 5 INGREDIENTS OR LESS.
She has given salt/ sugar, pepper/chili powder, oil/butter, tempering ingredients as freebies, everything else will be counted towards the 5 ingredients. So lets have fun in coming up with some delicious dishes that our kids would love.
Sowmya will be hosting the may edition. She is calling dishes that can be "Sweet Treats". It can be anything from Indian Sweets to International ones (including baked ones). Need to be vegetarian and Egg less.
Types of Kootus as made in Tamil Nadu
Well with Kootus being a part of the Tamil Nadu cuisine, this is a dish you hardly find it featured in a resturant. This mostly a homemade dish. These are either made on it's own or with Kootu podi.
I know this is sort of being very specific, I simply thought this category would surely need an exposure.
A kootu is typicall a dish made with lentil and vegetables, mostly served as a side dish and is liquid in state. This is not a dry saute.
Samosas with Different filling
Who wouldn't know Samosas. I love samosas and make with so many different fillings. Now is your chance to make these either baked or deep fried.
As the name says, you can cook and showcase sindhi cuisines.
