Isn’t it tough choosing food colors? I realized we use so few, so this time I am all set to challenge myself as much as you – the color for November is purple and black – if you have cooked anything that has any of these colors or both together send it in! I am sure you people are going to come up with some wonderful stuff this time, and it is going to be a whacky round up:)
1. Cook and post between 1st and 30th of November, 2008 – please do not relink earlier posts.
2. Send in any vegetarian dish (No eggs) as long as the end product has hues of purple, black or both!
3. Raw vegetables are not allowed except if used as such in salads or juices etc.!
4. If your food is cooked from any other blog or site please link your post with the name of the blog/site rather than ‘here’.
5. Please link your post to this post announcing the event.
6. Email me at – sunshinemomsblog(at)gmail(dot)com, replacing the (at) with @ and (dot) with . alongwith these details
- subject line – FIC – November
- Your name,
- The name of your blog and its link,
- The name of the dish and the link, and ‘No picture’ (I shall pick it up from your blog)
6. If you do not have a blog, just email the recipe and a picture.
FIC-Brown Round up
Here we go – this time down to earth..no red carpet rolled out for my dear friends… just walk in with dust on your feet – sometimes getting your feet muddy makes you feel most alive – if green is the colour of youth, red of vivacity, brown is life itself! Brown is the soul, the crust, the real you!! How about indulging in some brown therapy for your tummy?
This time I stuck to the tried and tested alphabetical order of names of participants, so that hopefully I do not leave out any entries including mine;)
She also sent these prize winning almond puris – want to why the health nut sends in a fried sweet dish? Check up her blog:)
Updated on 5th Nov. 2008 – I just missed the flour that started it all – Bharti’s Spelt bread which has the earliest Biblical bread references! Go back in time:
Bournvita Fudge– that reminds me of those days…when we tried stuffing our mouths with spoonfuls of bournvita when Mom was asleep!! This is such a nice kiddie treat
Dibs made this whole wheat flour halwa, godi halwa esp. for her nephew as made by Papu Pati:
Raagi Porridge– healthy, nostalgia arousing and nutritious. If you are fond of savouries try this version…..
Spiced Mango Bread – At this time of the year? It is meant to keep you tempted till Summer:)
She (Jayasree) also sent in this double bonanza of date cookies and an eggless date cake – Looks like its treat time in Kailas Kitchen:)
Lakshmi Venkatesh of Kitchen Chronicles sent in three yummy recipes:
Power packed soya manchurians – Lipsmacking!!
PG of My Kitchen Stories is first time on FIC, and she has a chocolate story to tell – Just my thing – Chocolate Muffins🙂
Priti of Indian Khana too has a second version of eggless date cake in celebration of Eid. She makes sevaiyan but just happens that it is already posted hence the cake:)
Priya of Priya’s Easy N Tasty Recipes has sent in two delicious entries:
Karela chips – If you are a bitter gourd lover like my daughter, this will be a favourite dish!
Vegan Choco Almond Shake – Want some guilt free energy?
Radhika of Tickling Palates sent in two tasty and different sweet dishes – both learnt from her friends.
Karjikkai– Made in Coorg style this one may look familiar but has a different filling.
Sunshinemom of Tongue Ticklers…… (me) – Two of my favourite foods – bread and mushrooms
A vegan Swedish Tea Ring:
Dhingri Badaami or Mushrooms in almond gravy:
Sushma also presents the Mangalorean delicacy – Golibaje. Some how I seem to hum ‘Oh goli taaro…goli baje, goli baje…..’ instead of dhol baje, from ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’:) But its true – I am fida over this bajji!
Sweatha of Tasty Curry Leaftoo had a double offer this time: Delicate lace cookies and decadent brownies – better scrape the bottom of the dish and enjoy the brownies – the recipe promises to taste great!
Welcome to FIC, Ujwal! Ujwal’s Kitchen is a lab, and brings in the flavors of Navratri – the decorations and the festivities that go with Ayudha Pooja when she prepared this rava payasam. The USP? the payasam is made with coconut milk and jaggery, and it is vegan!
…..and Malpuris from “Oota Upahara” by Jaya V. Shenoy.
Vaishali of Holy Cow! presents a sweet vegan dessert – a tarte tatin! This promises to tantalize those taste buds and gives some wings to my imagination;)!
Sambar with rasam and potato bhaji!
Panakam in extreme South, panak in the Konkan Region, Panha in Maharashtra and Panna in the North. I am not giving any recipe links as the internet is flooded with many versions!
Hope this round up fires up your ovens, and gas tops as it is doing mine!! Don’t forget ‘Purple and Black’. If there are any omissions do leave a comment so I can get back and rectify.
