Yes, the judging has been done and one blogger is getting Asha Khatau’s Vegetarian Cuisines Of The World.
Before I get to that, I want to thank everyone who sent in entries, and their congratulations and best wishes. You all make me feel that I ought to continue blogging here, even on those days when the “blogger’s block” seems to take me over.
Who were the judges?
A very good friend of mine, my sister who lives half way across the world, my husband and our daughter. I know, it’s a bit of a “keeping it in the family” kind of judging but it would have been unfair to celebrate a year of my blog and not include the moving force (my better thirds) behind my starting this blog.
Before we get to who is getting the gift, it would be only fair to present the sweet dishes that all of you sent in to celebrate with me. As is my usual practice, I’m presenting all the 60 entries in no particular order.
And a 7 cup sweet from Saroja of Mumbai (India). She is my cousin-in-law and a good cook but does not have a blog yet. She is celebrating with me too, and here’s her recipe.
Besan - 1cup
Milk - 1cup
Ghee - 1cup
Grated coconut - 1cup
Sugar - 3 cups
Mix all ingredients in a heavy bottomed vessel and stir in medium fire till it leaves the side of the vessel. Pour it in a greased tray and when cooling cut in to small pieces.
As you can see they are all winners, and judging wasn’t easy but one person had to be picked. And the entry with the most votes from the judges is Rosie’s Hummingbird Cake.
Congratulations Rosie, and please do check your inbox for my mail.
I believe I have included all the entries I received in this round-up. If I have left anyone out by mistake, please leave a comment at this post and I shall include the entry at the earliest.
