- I used 2 cups of cooked rice for the same proportion of other ingredients.
- One serrano is enough for two cups of rice.
- Basic gara masala can be used instead of spicy garam masala.
- I used cooked Basmati rice.
- I just used a half of a tomato, omitted the cilantro since I didnt have any at that time!
Once again, it is time to thank two of my fellow bloggers, Shubha of Chutki Bhar Pyar (Yummy blog award) and Sireesha of Mom's recipes (Rocking Girl Blogger award) for bestowing upon me two different awards!! I am very thankful for all your kind gestures, and I thank all of my readers, again, for your support and encouragement!
I would like to pass on the Yummy blog award from Shubha and Rocking girl blogger award from Sireesha to,
Enjoy your awards as each of you deserve these awards to the fullest extend!
Roopa, who conceived the Yummy blog award says "Yummy blog award is the award given to the blog with most yummy recipes/photos" The receiver should also quote their favorite yummy-licious :) dessert(s) that they have ever prepared/eaten. Dont restrict yourself to any dessert, chocolate bars also welcome:). Also the receiver should pass on the award to four other bloggers who's blog they find "yummy" and let them know about the rules:)
As per the rules of the Yummy Blog Award, I am stating my four favourite desserts:
Now many of you might know me well enough to know that I am more of a sweets/desserts person, and its very tough for me to choose four. So I am giving just a general idea,
1. Icecreams (almost any flavor except for mint)
2. Gulab jamun
3. Cakes (any flavor, but not too much of icing!)
4. Chocolates (like toblerone, bounty, ferrero rocher and good old dairymilk!)
Hope you all had a great weekend. Good day to all!!I am sending this to the "Mixed rice varieties" event at EC's Simple Indian Food. Its also off to Archana's "One Dish Meal event" at Archana's kitchen.
