Event Announcement - "COOK AND CLICK"

Tried and tasted by Nivedita 
Hi All,
After getting lovely responses from all of you for my last week's POST, I am very excited to announce my another new event "COOK AND CLICK"
Before you go through the rules, please read the previous POST.
Now coming to the rules,
As many people thought that I will be giving traditional recipes, Sorry, its not about only traditional recipes. The recipes I am giving you are from old books, magazines or my mother's collection, which I have with me. There might be many recipes you might be already knowing or you might have already  prepared it. May be you might have got those books with you also.
I am still a newbie in this food world. May be many of you feel the recipes I am giving you are very old for you. Please bear with me and send me the tips to improve myself.
My intention here is to explore few old recipes and mainly "LETS COOK TOGETHER THE SAME RECIPE AND SHARE OUR EXPERIENCES" I am sure we all are going to have lot of fun.
I AM GIVING YOU ONE RECIPE PER EVENT. (I changed it from two to one, as its confusing for you and me also). You may not get time to try two recipes and one recipe will miss out from your list.
Now the rules,
1.I will post one recipe with ingredients, procedure and the source (if possible), exactly the way its written in the book.
If possible! because, I have few pages without the main book :-) also.
2. The event will repeat 3 times in a month (10 days per recipe)
3. You should try  the recipe. The only STRICT RULE is: First time, TRY TO FOLLOW THE RECIPE 100%. YOU CAN REDUCE THE QUANTITY TO HALF OR DOUBLE according to your requirement.
4. Once you prepare it, click the photo and send it to me with link back to this post. No need to retype the ingredients and procedure. Only extra tips can be added when you try second time.
5. If you already have the recipe in your archive, just send the photos with the link.

6. If the ingredient is available in different varieties or colors(like bell peppers and similar) you can substitute it. 
7. If you like the dish, and wants to prepare it again, and if you find the dish will taste better with certain changes, you can send me the tips. I will add it in the recipe with your link.
8. I will post the round up(only photos with your blog link) within a week (or less). First round up may take time, as I do not want to repeat the mistake I did in the last event(skipped few recipes in a hurry)
Once the weeks pass by, the roundup will be done faster.
9. I will giving some guidelines if it is required about substituting some ingredients or similar.
10. I will be trying these dishes with you all. 
Some times, I may give a very simple or easy and very popular recipe also!
