Single Serving at Spicyrasam

Heyyyy I am back!!! With loads of stories and a mouth-watering roundup of the event Single Serving Recipes!!!

First of all, I am so sorry for delay….sudden trip to Netherlands, delayed everything!! I should have done this like 10 days before….Sorry Sorry 😦 

Coming to my experience, Wow, I should say, the blogger world is very nice and friendly….and most importantly, enthusiastic!! I came to know and discover many awesome blogs, from whom I can learn a lot both cooking wise and photography wise too!!! Some photos I got are soooo beautiful that I was looking at them for so long!!

Snacks – Tiffins!

It all started with a mail from Kavya ,  asking if she can use EGG and I said Yes, she sent me the first entry 🙂 YayyySpanish Omlete !!  

Two days later, I was more than glad, when I saw my mail box with two recipes from a new friend Asha of Aromahope which are  also quite new to me 🙂 …Mixed Vegetables and Averekalu Uppittu and Tomato, Peas and Carrots Uppittu

My new friend, on wordpress, Valli of Vallisworld sent me, Saggubiyyam Upma which I know is favorite of most of AP and maharashtra people 🙂 Others, I strongly suggest you try this, you would love this for sure!!
