I was really really tied up with things at home and couldnt get to post the round up earlier than this. There are so many wonderful , innovative dishes that all the participants sent , a feast to the eye and to the taste buds as well. Thank you all for participating in this event and also being patient with the delay in the round up.
I am going through a fried food and chocolate phase now. All I can think of is fritters and a yummilicious cup of chocolate. We were about to make the traditional jalapeno fritters ( mirchi bajji) and then I wanted to make something that fits into the event. So we googled about Basil fritters and realised they do exist!
A sunny plant from India , commonly grown in Asia and Africa for 4000 years. It was an important herb used only for medicinal purposes in the 16th century in europe , but became the most important and one of the best culinary herbs in the 17th century. Basil is the easiest herb to grow and thankfully mine is still surviving after being with me .
