RCI: Awadhi Roundup

The year 2009 started on a very 'unhealthy' note for me. I got sick for several weeks and a mild sickness still continues. My appetite has reduced, I don't feel like cooking anymore and the worst part - now I sleep more than 7 hrs. Phew! I hope to get better soon.

On a different note, as soon as I was done with AFAM roundup, I was planning to post this RCI: Awadhi roundup. I apologize for the delay, all thanks to my illness. But, 'Never the late', here I am with an impressive collection of entries sent by you all. Thanks dearies for your participation.



Lets begin with Roopa's Pyaaz bhara Kachori, and how she reminisces her college days, where she gobbled up these when served as a tea-time snack :)



Next entry is Varsha's 'Spinach dish', which is filled with healthy food thoughts & ideas with some of her childhood memories too.



Cham, as always shares a yummy kebab recipe - 'Corn Seekh Kabab' served with yogurt dip. Now, that a killer combo, I must say.



Meera, brings in a sweet touch with her 'Sheer Korma' also called as 'Zarda Seviyan'.



I guess, there is hardly anybody who's favorite dessert list doesn't include 'Gajar Ka Halwa'. PJ sends in this lovely nawabi treat..:)



A yummy sweet and a savory. Priya sends us both - 'Navratna Pulao' and 'Almond Kulfi'. What else do we need to satiate our hungry appetites. Huh!!



Its time to check out some spicy curries, sent by Vidhas. Whats in you ask - Baigan Ka Bhartha, Potato Kurma and Kadhi Pakodi. Yummy!




Rekha brings five different colorful flavors of Awadhi to all of us. First one is a beautiful rose petal syrup i.e 'Gulab ki Sharbat', a traditional dish - 'Dal Bukhara', third is yummy 'Lucknowi Dum Biryani', the list goes on with an all-time favorite 'Gajar ka Halwa' and last but not the least, 'Green peas Kachori'. Thanks dearie for such yummy entries..:))



If you are in search of some yummy, yet simple Awadhi recipes, then check out what Ramki has shared with us - '10 Awadhi recipes' all in one page. Yeh!!



Hema sends in four of her yummy recipes - 'Aloo Kofta Curry', 'Corn Pulao', 'Sweet spicy Corn Twist' and 'Mint Pulao'. :))


Finally, here is my best pal's 'Zafrani Pulao'. :) It so reminds me of what Amitabh Bachchan says in Cheeni Kum movie. - 'Its the best!'.. :))

Please do leave me a comment or email me, if I have missed any of your entries.

Have a great week ahead.

Best,
Siri

  1. Aw..!! So sorry about that. It's hard to have time full time job, come home to cook and blog and host too. I can understand how exhausting than can be for you. Rest whenever you get time! We all have cold virus at home too now!

    I missed this RCI, but may be I will cook a few one day. Great looking dishes, I am not familiar with Awadh dishes, nice to know. Thanks for taking time! :)

    Hoping somebody would host Delhi cuisine!
