Sia's Spot

Each and every month, Zlamushka select one blogger to be Tried and Tasted. Yes, for this month event, Sia of Moonsoon spice will be highlighted. Can I say, she is a senior blogger who is spinning around actively :) Her blog turned completely two years; the collection of Indian cuisine is keep growing. Result, we all fell in love with her drool worthy pictures and keep book marking all her recipes.
Apart being a great cook, she narrates well too :) She drives you deep down to your memory lane and make you nostalgic! Phew :( but the truth I love all her rants.
Ok, coming to the recipe, long back I book marked the microwaved Khandvi recipe. For the Green pepper soup, the temperature is dropping down in SFO, so I was in current mood of warm soup. The soup is so light, I substituted cream to milk. Both turned out excellent, Thank you Sia for sharing all ur cool & easy recipes. It is hard to resist all her tempting snacks :(

I am sending the Green soup to Green event hosted by Sunshinemom.
Sending both of my tried & tasted recipes to Madhu's event, you recipe rock! .

Cham-

Lovely green bell pepper soup, your idea of toasting white bread and sprinkling with parmesan and oregon is super. More than the soup, I love those substituted croutons. Good one.

Very nice Cham, I have been meaning to try those khandvis sometime. They look so pretty and soft.
Time for some gossip... Nice write up about Sia's blog and her. I know! two years is a long time right? I don't know how she does it beautifully... I have been doing it only for 2 months, and I am afraid that I am going to run out of recipes soon! That happens every time I write a post! :(

Thee riccotta mithai is not very dry, i left it little wet and could eat like halwa but You can dry it further for burfi like feel. It is simmilar to Kalakand, and you should try this very close to the milky taste too

Sagari said...

sunshinemom said...

The khandvi looks amazing - in fact it takes away some of the focus from the soup:), which is great too - but like someone already said - the khandvi gets the thumbs up! Thanks for sending it to FIC!
