Announcing Mega Marathon BM#39 April ~ Indian States

After doing couple of Mega Marathons, we are very enthusiastic in continuing the tradition of doing full month Marathon. Ever since we completed our September ABC Cooking, we have been discussing on doing the next one.

So for the BM# 39 which happens to be April 2014, it is going to be Indian States and its food.

We have finalized a list which consists of both States and Union Territories of India. All are expected to do the same state as what is decided for each day.

Each day will be dedicated to one Indian State/UN and you can cook an authentic dish from that state and post on your blog.

You are free to choose any dish, any course from the state, provided it is originally from that state.



Examples of what is not accepted:

A blogger hailing from North can make Dosas and Idlis but can't make Dal Tadka and similar typesetc.
Similarly same gets applied to a blogger hailing from South.

What this means is, if you are a native of a state, you can't make the everyday dish of that state.

What is also expected is, you got to read into their Food culture and understand why certain spice is added. So we are expecting detailed account of what you have researched and it has to be accountable with proper reference.

If you source has been a book, you can mention the book or any online source you used.

For those of you who are landing here for the first time, please check out these posts on Blogging Marathon, you can read about all the history, the thought process that's gone in everything in one place in the BM#18 intro

For details on BM held every month, check out the Blogging Marathon page. Once I get all details I will be updating this page. Bloggers taking part in this marathon need to just link back to this page.

Just as the usual Marathon, this edition will also be by Sign ups.

And because of the new rules I will not be able to accept late sign ups as it will become extremely hard for me to manage otherwise. If you feel you want to do it, please decide ahead, else you can join us for the later editions.
