This is the first event announcement on my blog this year and I am mighty glad it is starting with an event hosted for a worthy cause.
Its my turn to host – Complete my Thali event started by Jagruti of Joy Of Cooking.First a little intro about this noble event.CMT is a bimonthly event, where dishes are chosen to complete a thali .Thali as we all know is made of a meal consisting of sweets, fried dishes, chutnies, rice, samabar/dhal, rasam, poori/chapathi, sabji or vegetable dishes, pickles and pappads,practically something that is full of flavor,a mixture of textures and a nutritionally wholesome one.
This month we will be preparing sabji / shaak / porriyal / vegetable side dishes[dry] to be filled in as a part of the Thali. Sabji is an important part of the meal as they provide the requisite vitamins and minerals,keeps us full for long and has fiber [depending on the choice of the vegetable].
So send me your sabji’s and a winner will be chosen in the roundup.Jagruthi will try out that winning recipe for the thali.
I call this a ‘noble’ event coz Jagruti will be donating the amount that was used to prepare the thali at the end of the event to a person who is not blessed to have even a single dish from the thali.Yes, the amount goes to UNICEF.
So dear friends let us cook for this worthy cause…I will post the logo shortly.
