B’bye 2oo9 !
You are one of my favorite years, y? I got engaged, married and honeymooned and yeah my favorite hobby – Personal Tadka was born this year!
Thank you for some lovely – sweet – awesome – delicious – yummy – spicy - delectable memorable moments of my Life ! (I know these have been my most used adjectives this year- will try to use new words soon ;) ).
I won’t select any tops out of 38 odd posts here, I cherished each of them, I worked hard to prepare the dishes the way I wanted and worked harder to post about them!
I still recollect …. (being into IT field I’ve this tendency to mention everything in bullets :P )
- My joyous face (as if I won a Noble Prize) when Personal Tadka won its first award <:-P
- The proud call I made to my mom when I prepared the perfect Sambhar and Solkadi (Maa main pass ho gaya), :)]
- The Foodie’s amazed look when he had the Mexican Tacos and Parsi Omlette (yeh kya hain??) :-O
- My satisfactory smile when The Foodie prepared his favourite Bhutte ka kees , Moong pakode or Bharwa Mirchi (Good work Honey…) :x
- My Happiest Giggles when I prepared my favorite Pani puri or Pav bhaji ! :D(Yayyayayay !!)
Along with these I also reminisce …….. I cluttered my kitchen, read too many recipes, tried many more, stalked many food blogs, crazily clicked every other dish that I prepared, drafted too many posts to post, participated in every other food blog event, whimsically got up early morning to check out comments of posts, refreshed my google reader after every one fourth of a min to check new updates from fellow bloggers and I have done many more weird stuffs – thanks to Personal Tadka. You had truly been a sexy year and 2010 promises to be more sexy and hot! :-*
Sigh !! You had been an eventful year, bidding you goodbye with a portugal sweet !
Thanks !! Miss you ! :(
Recipe #7 for Nupur’s Marathon, one of the most fun and exciting event I participated this year !
While browsing for Rice Pudding, I stumbled on these Portugal Rice Pudding Recipes.I was impressed with there step wise clicks and beautiful description.I had immediately bookmarked it and prepared over the weekend.Its our very own Rice Kheer with egg in it :D
Verdict: I loved the thick essence of pudding and overall deserty look ! Though it was mentioned that the desert tastes better when cold, I preferred the hot version. I clicked these snaps after I refrigerated it, hence the dry look. I normally love puddings so loved the egg essence in our very own Indian Kheer, but The Foodie found the egg essence as a distraction to the kheer and was of the opinion that it would have tasted better without egg :P
Throughout in my post, I dint thank you- yes you – My lovely blogger- non blogger friends who visit my space once a while and make it very special for me! Personal Tadka strives for better year – thanks to you ! As I always say – Hope to see you often around next year :)
Love you !
Delicious Scrumptious Year Ahead !!
