Announcing - Compete My Thali Event

This is the  first event announcement on my blog this year and I am mighty glad it is starting with an event hosted for a worthy cause.

Its my turn to host - Complete my Thali event started by Jagruti of Joy Of Cooking.First a little intro about this noble event.CMT is a bimonthly event, where dishes are chosen to complete a thali .Thali as we all know is made of a  meal consisting of  sweets, fried dishes, chutnies, rice, samabar/dhal, rasam, poori/chapathi, sabji or vegetable dishes, pickles and pappads,practically something that is full of flavor,a mixture of textures and a nutritionally wholesome one.
This month we will be preparing sabji / shaak / porriyal / vegetable side dishes[dry] to be filled in as a part of the Thali. Sabji is an important part of the meal as they provide the requisite vitamins and minerals,keeps us full for long and has fiber [depending on the choice of the vegetable].

So send me your sabji's and a winner will be chosen in the roundup.Jagruthi will try out that winning recipe for the thali.

I call this a 'noble' event coz Jagruti will be donating the amount that was used to prepare the thali at the end of the event to a person who is not blessed to have even a single dish from the thali.Yes, the amount goes to UNICEF.

So dear friends let us cook for this worthy cause...I will post the logo shortly.


Here are a few guidelines for the event...
  1. Cook a sabji/ dry curry from any cuisine / any vegetable and post it in your blog.
  2. You can send in any number of entries.Archived ones are accepted if they are re-posted for the event.
  3. A link to this announcement and to Jagruti's original announcement is a must.
  4. Non bloggers are also welcome to participate
