‘Only’ Event Of August & Giveaway

Hi All!
In the month August we celebrate some big festivals like Eid and Rakshabandhan. It’s the month of holy Ramadan and girls tying the sacred thread of trust on their brother’s hand. Both the celebrations call for a royal treat and hence this theme.
This month is about eating Royal treats passed on to us by the kings and queens. Yes, we are going to celebrate Royal Cuisine here, the foods cooked in royal kitchens of India and other countries. For example the famous Lucknowi and Hyderabadi Cuisine made in the kitchen of The Nawabs, The Dum food coming from Awadh, The Peshawari food from Peshawar, The Rajputana delicacies from Marwar, The food from Marathwada and so on.
I know the royal treats are very rich and mostly high on calories and so you are most welcome to make a low calorie version as long as there’s no compromise on the taste. Similarly, there are many non vegetarian preparations made by the kings and queens, if you are a vegetarian, you can make a veg version of the preparation and mention that in your post. Also, would appreciate if you could provide some history behind the recipe.
This Royal affair on food is guest hosted by a dear blogger friend Divya who posts her recipes at Divya’s Culinary Journey.
The more elaborate details of the event can be checked out at her space. I’m lucky that www.tarladalal.com has agreed to sponsor the giveaway for the third consecutive year here at Foodelicious. My heartfelt thanks to them. For this month the cookbook which will be given as giveaway is, Punjabi Subzis. This giveaway is open only for the followers of my space as that makes us connected with each other and I feel they deserve it more to get the giveaway.

Only Royal Cooking
So, go ahead, don a royal hat and let the royal affair begin…

This is a lovely event indeed, Pari - I have just posted my kaaju barfis - will that count as an entry for this? If so I will link it now - Happy Rakshabandan to you - We have the Thread ceremony today and my hubby's birthday so it's all about calories chez moi :) hugs, Priya

Pari Vasisht said...

Priya, I guess Kaju Katli would as they were definitely eaten by the royal people earlier.
