Celebrating Streetfoods- My first event extended deadline

A very happy new year to all my blogger friends, followers and readers who have brought me this far. This is my 100th post and its a new year.I cant believe i ve written a 100 posts on my blog. This blog has become my baby. I can say that it is this blog that has augmented to my cooking repertoire. I would never have gone on to cook up so many dishes that i did. A 100 posts definitely calls for a celebration and what better way to celebrate other than to start an event. This is my first event. I wanted to do something fun for a change. Enough of counting the calories, scrimping on the oil and ghee and thinking healthy all the while. Lets indulge ourselves a little. Shall we?? You guessed right. My event is all about street foods. Only you have to recreate them in your kitchen. So what are street foods?? According to the Wikipedia, Street food is ready-to-eat food or drink sold in a street or other public place, such as a market or fair, by a hawker or vendor, often from a portable stall.According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, 2.5 billion people eat street food every day.(That surely is a lot of people!!). 


Okie folks. Now for some excitement. Due to requests from all you lovely people out there, i m extending the deadline to Feb 20th. So bring it on beautiful chefs and cook up some street delights till the 20th feb!!

                                             My event is all about cooking street foods in our own kitchens nice, clean and hygienic. You can make any dish that reminds you of eating on the streets. For me its always gol gappe and tikki poori on the streets of Bangalore. You can make anything from chaat in our style or sandwiches famous on the Mumbai Roadsides or even Dim Sums from the oriental.
Okay!! Now the exciting part. At the end of this event, i shall choose one winner for the giveaway of the book Street Foods by Sanjeev Kapoor. Read on for the rules of the event.
