My Legume Love Affair – 33

A Big Thank you to Susan for giving me this wonderful opportunity to host  MLLA-33 .  The daily grind of handling 2 beauties and a home has taken precedence over everything else in life.  We had another beautiful addition to our family , Little Anika who is 5 months old . If it not were for MLLA , I would have taken a longer break than this.

A legume in terms of this event is fresh or dried beans, lentils, pulses, and/or the sometimes edible pods that contain these seeds, and derivative products like tofu or besan. Avoid any confusion w/ the French legumes, which they mean as any vegetable at all.  Tamarind, fenugreek, carob, peanuts, etc. are among some of the other edible plants in the legume family which ARE included in the event.

A spoonful or soupcon of a legume is not quite enough to qualify. Recipes that do not actually feature legumes, but reference them as an auxiliary ingredient will not be considered for this event . MLLA is really about the legumes of any sort as the main draw. For example. please don’t add half a teaspoon of Fenugreek and send it across as it wont be considered for the drawing.

Rules for this event :

*All courses and cultures are welcome,This event at Ammalu’s Kitchen is strictly vegetarian-only.  .

* Multiple recipes are permitted (although only one submission will be counted towards the random drawing/s).
