‘Only’ EVENT For March and The Giveaway


Hi All!
The days are passing by and we are already entering the third month of this year. March brings in the festival of colours ‘Holi’ and also the Hindu Calendar New Year for some in the form of Ugaadi or Gudi Padwa. I’m sure there will be events all over the blogosphere celebrating these festivals but here at Foodelicious we are going to celebrate the South Indian Cuisine. The event will run through the month of March.
Only South Indian
One of the most popular cuisines of India, the South Indian Cuisine is a term used to refer to the cuisines found in the four southern states namely Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. There’s a great diversity in the preparations and flavours of the four states but a few things that are common are, the use of rice, coconut, curry leaves and tamarind which gives the southern cuisine it’s identity. Rice is the staple food of Southern India but in Karnataka, Jowar and Ragi are also eaten. There’s a huge difference in the style of cooking between the North and South Karnataka and the small additions bring in great variations in taste.
Idli and Dosa are eaten everywhere in Southern India but the texture of Idli and Dosa varies from state to state. So many varieties of Dosa, Idli and snacks are made in these states. There’s a huge range of cuisines within the Southern cuisine that can be tried. One can cook the Nawab’s delight- Hyderabadi Food which is rich and aromatic  on the other hand  cook the hot and spicy Andhra food or try the coastal Mangalorean cuisine, choice is entirely yours.
The giveaway is sponsored by www.tarladalal.com. For this month’s South Indian Theme Event the giveaway book is

Hi Dear,

Is it not enough to have the links to the event on the archived blog post and to republish it?

Reposting the same entry simply creates duplicates recipes in the blog.

Please share your thoughts?

Hi Pari, I tried to upload the logo in my post, but I am getting this message

"We can't find the image at that URL.•Please check the address for typing errors.
•Make sure the image is public. If your image is protected by a password, or on an internal network, we will not be able to read it."

Maybe it is a problem with my net connection, I am able to upload images from my computer only with great difficulty but I could upload from other pages. I will try again and upload the logo as soon as possible

I precisely wanted to thank you very much all over again.
I'm not certain the things that I would've accomplished in the absence of those basics documented
by you relating to such subject matter. This was a daunting dilemma in
my circumstances, nevertheless observing the very specialized style you resolved
the issue forced me to cry with fulfillment. I am happy for
this advice as well as sincerely hope you realize what an amazing
job you're undertaking educating the mediocre ones via your webpage. I am certain you've never come
across all of us.
