Best eat outs of 2010!- a visual treat for you!

When Smitha asked me to participate in her event I could not think of anything better than this post. While in Bengaluru for the winter vacation we visited some really nice restaurants as I love to experiment different cuisines:)
This Picture is an authentic Rajasthani thali with poris, rotis, many varieties of subzis, dals, kadhi, rice, kichidi/ghee, papad, samosa, dahi vada, desserts like hot malpua, dal poli, fruit salad and at last sweet pan!!

The speciality about this thali was that they were of unlimited serving. You can ask for more :)

Before and after food we can wash our hands in warm water this way...

This thali is my entry to the event "Best food I have eaten and blogged about" by Smitha

Can you guess what this is??

It is Idly steamed in banana leaf. When we ordered Idly for my little one we were given this soft spongy idly fully packed in the banana leaf!!

Northern Karnataka meals served with Jonna rotti(Jowar roti) at Kamat on the way to Mysore
Men serving food in Traditional Indian khadi clothes..
Bananas, onions, garlics, pumpkins, hanging ....
Fresh hot potato chips being fried...
Who is not familiar with MTR. We ordered masala dosa...
and my favorite Sambar vada:)

It is very difficult to choose one food as favorite. I am a big fan of chinese too. Noodles and Manchurian, I can eat it anytime!!

The following pictures are of a wedding we attended in the North India. This plate is just one porting of my food. There were more than 500 items served in the wedding. There were stalls of India street food like chat, dosas etc and almost all types of north Indian food, Chinese, kid friendly food like steamed corn, icecreams fruit salad, juices too

It was winter and we were served hot milk garnished with pista..
He was making some hot milk for me....
Ya kulfi in the freaking cold winter....
Hot Jelabis with milk is a great combi.....
Hot masala chai being served in small terracota pots... I had plenty....
These were Pan leaves which can be designed as you wish..
Thses are the items which are into the pan leaves ..... ya these many!!!

Sabudana Thalipeeth (Sago Chapatis) My 150th post :)

I know you people might be wondering, just 150th post in 4 years!! I too felt the same way!!
Thanks to all for making it happen! This success of Neivedyam would not have happened without you guys:)

This beautiful world map caught my eyes in the food court of a mall in Bangalore:) Isn't it beautiful! Foodies like me admire such things!!

This is a very nice snaking item with some hot masala chai.


1 cup Sago (Soaked overnight)
2 medium potatoes (boiled,peeled and mashed)
2-3 green chillies
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 cup crushed roasted peanuts
2 tbsp fresh chopped coriander
1 tbsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
1 tsp oil
3-4 tsp ghee


Mix together the sago, mashed potatoes, green chillies, chilli powder, roasted peanuts, fresh corander, cumin seeds and salt.
Divide the mixture and make small balls. Grease a plastic or polythene sheet with some oil.(milk packet is best)Place the sabudana ball on it. Flatten the ball with greased fingers into a thick round.
Heat a non-stick tawa and add a tsp ghee. Gently transfer the thalipeeth onto the tawa removing it from the plastic sheet. Cook, spreading both sides with a tsp of ghee till evenly light golden brown.
Serve hot with spicy chutney!!
