My first "Liebster Award"- :)


First I want to thank Preetha for nominating me for this "Liebster Award".  I have started blogging a week before about cooking and still in the process of improving the blog. Hearty thanks for the "Liebster Award" chain, so that we newbies will come to know each other. Happy to participate in this :) 

Here goes the things that you need to do when you receive this award

  • Blog about the award in your space.
  • Thank the presenter and link back to the blogger who awarded you.
  • Copy paste the award picture to your blog.
  • Answer the questions asked by the blogger.
  • Nominate 10 -15 bloggers at your space who have less than 200 followers
  • Create a new list of questions for the nominees
  • Inform them of their nomination and award by leaving comment on their blog.
  • Leave a note to them to collect it from your space.

So here the answers for questions asked by Preetha of A Bowl of Curry

1. Describe yourself in 3 words.
lovable,lazy, foodie

2. Your likes and dislikes.
Likes.....I love to travel, click and drench in rain
Dislikes.... hmmm folding cloths and pressing... :)

3. How did you pick your blog name?
I wanted to chose a name that must suits to my recipes. And I am bored of  "Kitchen", "cornor", and "space" etc. Still I am not 100% satisfied with the name i have choose, I may change it in future.. :)

4. what age did you get your hands on cooking and first dish you prepared (Don't tell me tea/coffee)?

I remember making a carrot halwa all by meself when i was in my 6th grade (11 years old)...
I shared it with my school friends and it was a big hit... :)
(I named it as carrot halwa that time, but doesn't resemble any of the traditional carrot halwas...i made it with sooji and carrots. Still my mother used to tell that was very tasty and i am not making such halwa now a days) 

5.What ingredient you haven't used in your kitchen yet but would love to experiment with?

I have not used "Quinoa" grain yet. I have bought a pack of it a month ago.. Still dint get time to try.
6.Your Signature Dish.(If in your blog please provide the link)

Tomato rice and Chicken briyani. I am yet to post the recipe.

7. Favourite recipe which you love to cook.

Of course Tomato rice, I like to experiment by adding different lentils and my family just loves the tomato rice i make.

8. Fame or Money and why?

Fame- if you have fame, money will come back to it. 

9.Two BEST PHOTOGRAPHED pics on my blog :A Bowl Of Curry" (provide link).

I must say your cover photo in the blog is really nice with its color and the spices, nicely photographed.

And again the chicken in pepper masala scores for photography too :)

10. Any two recipes which you would like to try from my blog (provide link)

1. I love pepper chicken masala, I found it in your blog and want to try it sometimes.
Chicken in Pepper masala

2. And My another favorite ayela fish fry.

11. Big lavish parties or small intimate dinners - which is your entertaining style?

I like small Intimate get to-gathers. As it helps to interact much with your circle. For me lavish parties are just to eat, there are no chances of strengthening relationships.

12. One more from my side....  When you cook something tasty, do you lick your plate when you're done??? 

Depends... if guests around "no".. or else :)

Now here my nominees are:

Keerthika Vikram @ Keerthi's Kitchen
Shereen Michael @ recipelisted
Full Scoops@ fullscoops
Pankti @ my cooking adventures
Aparna @ flavors and colors
Kitchen Rhythms @Kitchen Rhythms

And the questions for the nominees:

1. Who is your favorite chef?
2. What Vegetarian Menu you like to cook when you invite guest for dinner?
3. Mention one funny disaster you made at kitchen?
4. What was your successful recipe that made your spouse to say, " best than my mom's preparation"?
5. While cooking do you need music?
6. Before start blogging, did you had the habit of clicking your  food plates?
7. Which dish you like from my blog? (provide link)
8. According to you what is the best part and worst part in cooking?
9.  You prefer your dishes to be healthy or tasty?
