A Celebration of Indian Food and a Giveaway - Part Two


Visit the Indian Food Glossary for information on the ingredients in this recipe
A few months back, I invited my readers to submit one of their favorite Indian vegetarian recipes. I have decided to offer lovers of Indian food a second chance to participate in a roundup because I received so many tempting recipes the last time around. This time, participants will have a chance to win a copy of Sukham Ayu by Jigyasa Giri and Pratibha Jain. I will choose a random winner and ship this incredible book at my own expense to any location in the world.

This cookbook is full of information about vegetarian Ayurvedic recipes, principles and guidelines, and is illustrated with gorgeous photographs that will be sure to tantalize your taste buds. Ultimately, it is the blend of flavors and seamless offerings that makes this a must for Indian cuisine enthusiasts. I have tried many recipes from this lovely cookbook and have learned much from the advice and wisdom offered. Truly a treasure and one of my prized cookbooks.

Look for Indian cookbooks and save with these Barnes and Noble coupons.


Now for the guidelines: Submit your most cherished Indian creation from any region of India. It can be an appetizer or sweet, spice blend, chutney or sauce, legume dish, soup, salad, grain dish, vegetable dish, bread, dessert or savory snack, beverage or an Indian-style fusion dish. Please note that I will only accept one entry from participants who are bloggers, and the recipe must be vegetarian. Your post must include a photo that I will feature in the roundup. A link to this post is also required. I look forward to your creations.

The deadline for entries is February 29th. Please send your recipe to herdcreature(at)hotmail(dot)com.

Update: It seems that some folks that have emailed their entry receive an error message when trying to send in their submission. Do send an email but please also leave a comment on this post so I can ensure your recipe is included in the roundup.
