Meera - A very enthusiastic and highly managed cook of Enjoy Indian food choose me to extend her Arusuvai friendship chain .
The Arusuvai friendship chain is brianchild of Latha and Lakshmi of the Yum blog. This is the friendship chain where you send your surprise ingredient to two or more of your blogger buddies. The friends use the surprise ingredient in their cooking and blog about it. This chain was quite popular in India. and now Latha of Masala Magic started the chain in USA. Thanks to all for this wonderful concept. Thank you Latha & Latha and lakshmi for your wonderful thought :)
Meera sent me 3 secret ingredients and if know me you must be knowing how am I in guessing game :D .
Well not only "Secret Ingredients" she send along with that a lovely card , a big bar of dark chocolate(which I managed to finish withing half hour of arrival ;) ). Even the Green placemate you see in this picture is also her gift for me.
So many things :p .... I was happy as a little child who received many gifts on her birthday :z .
When I got it I smelled that red powder as many times until I started sneezing with the strong flavor of that. And after that too , I was not correct in guessing it :x. Well I didn't expected that too , coz now I have learnt to accept my guessing power limitations :O .
Any guesses you have for what this can be (click on image to see larger view) ? I know the first one is what real challenge is , other 2 are little simpler compared to that. Doesn't matter even if you guess only one of them correct , you are still better than me coz I guessed all of them incorrect :O .
So ladies keep on guessing and I will be back soon with these spices - with some ongoing event's cooking and some bitter gourds too :) .Have a good day ahead, see you all soon.
