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.
Since everybody says they have so many cookbooks that they never refer, this is the right opportunity to pick up those books to refer! Online reference or blogs is not allowed. The recipe should come from a physical book
Please select any two of the ingredients listed below as your combination and prepare 3 dishes
Mangoes (can be unripe and ripe)
All three dishes can have any combination from the list and need not be the same for all three days.
Other ingredients in the dish is your choice. But the recipe you are picking up from the book need to have two of the ingredients listed above.
Spice Powders for Cooking
Spice powders are so essential to many Indian cuisines. Especially South Indian cuisine thrives on these spice powders.
Single ingredient or just couple of ingredients like the red chili powder or coriander powder is not allowed.
The spice powder presented can be from any cuisine. Essentially it should aid the cooking.
And not those that we end up eating with tiffins or rice.
Cooking with colours
This is specific to ingredient colour and not the final dish.
Like you can select tomatoes/ Red capsicum for Red
Paneer for white
mango for yellow
Raw / Unripe mango, Green Capsicum for green
Masoor dal for Orange
The final dish can be of any colour as the cooked dish tends to change colour.
Each day has to be one colour.
Course wise meal from any state
Lunch Recipes (Can be rice or gravy)
Under this, if you select the state to be gujarat, then for all three days you will have to make either only breakfast or only lunch or only sweets. All three days have to be from the same state and same course
Selection of the state is your choice.
The dishes have to fall under the given 4 categories. So if you are selecting Gujarat and breakfast, then you will be posting 3 breakfast dishes from gujarat.
Indian fusion with Chocolate Dishes
Well as the theme says bring on your chocolate dishes with a fusion mix on Indian take!
Food for the sick/elderly
The food under this category would include dishes that are healthy and suitable for those recuperating from some illness and elders who have diet restriction.
Bookmarked Recipes: As the theme says you can simply post all those that you had bookmarked and tried. This again can be from any source.
