Launching "From my Rasoi" - A call to all Indian food lovers!!
Rasoi means kitchen in Hindi. A place where most of us spend a great deal of time making things that would feed and comfort our loved ones and ourselves. The Indian kitchen never closes down. There is always something cooking up (literally)! If you, like me are someone who keenly follows the Indian food blogging scene, then would've surely noticed the sudden rise and increase of Indian bloggers all over the world! Just one look at the links on VK's blog and you'll get the picture. Indian food is gaining its popularity all over. Naan and Butter Chicken have become a commoner to almost everyone's palate. Heck, even the UK has Chicken Tikka Masala to be one of its most popular national dish!
On this note, I would like to invite all of you, Indian and non-Indian bloggers, food bloggers and non-bloggers, anyone and everyone who loves Indian food, to join me in celebrating this culinary revolution. Indian cooking is distinguished by the use of a larger variety of vegetables and spices, than many other well-known cuisines. Within these recognisable similarities, there is an enormous variety of local styles. The same dish can totally differ in taste as you move around the country. The rules are simple: 1: Every month I will post a theme and all you have to do, is come up with a recipe to share, that will highlight the taste on India. It can be anything and in any form, shape or size, sweet, savoury or even drinks! Special points for those who have a story to tell along with it. Is there a childhood memory attached, a family tradition, or just something you associate with, whatever it is, we want to hear about it! 2: Email me the link to your post and on the last Friday of the month, I will do write-up on all the participants and their submissions. For the inaugural chapter to this cook-off I suggest the theme "Winter", since that 's what's dawning on many of us at the moment (sigh!). So crank up that stove and cook up something that reminds you of the winter and wintery foods of India! Have your post links emailed in to me by the 30th of December, 2005! Do feel free to download and post the "From my Rasoi" banners on your site to let others know you are participating and spreading out the word. I'd greatly appreciate it!
So come on friends, lets get together and introduce others to the exotic and wonderful flavours of the Indian cuisine.
