Best of 2010

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Its always good to keep a track of our past. You can learn not to repeat the mistakes. You will know how to improve yourself. Sometimes you will feel proud with your work. Sometimes, it makes you laugh. Many times your past brings lot of memories, good and bad.
But this post is only for my cooking skills and my experiences in the kitchen. Its about my best recipe, my worst experiment  food...
I want to thank Valli for hosting this event as it allows us to look back in to the last year happenings and the best part is here we are the Judge for our work.
Here comes my list:
First I would like to judge my best 5 recipes of the year.
Ohh, its really difficult to judge myself. I have selected the best 5 recipes from my (All) BEST recipes:
  1. A queen of blood meets rice and white milk!! accid...Feb 03
  2. Complan Pedha and Horlicks (or Boost) Pedha in Mic...  Aug 23
  3. Biscuit Poli for Holi  March 5
  4. Tomato Rasam Cubes July 22
  5. Tawa Fried Paneer Tikka Aug 4

First time tried in my kitchen:
My first bake - Chocolate Cookies Aug 5: Yes!! I started baking at last. It was my dream to start baking and I did it.
Carrot and Orange Halwa  June 21 : It was the first time, I took risk to do something which I never did before.

Pineapple Chutney in M/W Sept 16: It was just delicious and I was happy to get the taste what I had guessed it before making it.
Tomato Rasam Cubes July 22 : This is my baby, which proved that I have a creativity in me.

Biscuit Poli for Holi  March 5 : This again is my experiment, which made my kids to enjoy the traditional food in a new way.
Apple Rasam! March 15: I never thought I will cook this some day.

Two best meals of the year:

Recipes with different names: Some times I become poetic and get some funny or different names for my recipe. Below are the recipes with some funny names:(But the taste is not funny..)

 Best dish(es) of the year
Tomato Rasam Cubes : This dish was selected for "Best 30 recipes of the year 2010" :-)
Falafel Sandwich (Indianised) : This got second prize in a blog for sandwich contest :-)

One more best thing happened in this year was, I wrote two stories! I always knew I can do it as I have already written many poems, but never thought of finishing a story. This year, it happened. 
The boy who never listened!: I tell this story to my daughter to keep her away from dangerous things.
Urad Dal Vada, Repentance :This is the first story I wrote and I sat in the night till 3 to finish and I did not feel tired at all! :-)


Now, coming to my favorite one: Preparing food from other blogs. I really enjoy a lot to follow the recipe from other blogs as it brings us close. I got many food remakes, and each recipe was followed to the max. accuracy. But I am giving only few links here:
and the list continues.., 
In my blog click "Food remake" and you will get all the recipes tried from other blogs.
 Coming to the best clicks of the year : I am not a professional photographer, neither I have a good camera. Reasons apart, I love to click the photos of my recipes and these are my favorite ones:













































There were some failures too, I hosted 2 events which were flop.
There were hits, where I hosted many events with lot of entries. 
I think I should stop here or else I will write of the whole blog in one post :-)
As per me, I never believe in making resolutions on new year. But I remember about last year that I would wish to learn baking this year and I did it.
Click  Best of year 2009 for the  best of last year 2009.
This time I am thinking of trying Continental, International food. Wish me luck. 
I will be here with more experiments in 2011.
Sending this to 

 Valli's Best of Year 2010 event. 



Keep Smiling,
