Ok...coming to the point ! I am really exited to announce the event "Complete My Thali" Series ! Let me explain you what the Thali is?
"Thali (Hindi: थाली, meaning "plate"; IPA: [t̪ʰɑːliː]) is an Indian meal with contents varying from one regional cuisine to another. A thali is a selection of different dishes, usually served in small bowls on a round tray." (source : Wikipedia)

So in this series every two weeks a new theme will be taken to complete my thali with the variety of dishes....For this month I've chosen the theme as
"Complete My Thali( CMT ) - Chutney"
Chutnies are important not only for snacks but they are an integral part of the main course too. Chutnies are generally spicy they can also be made sweet. In their absence an Indian meal remains incomplete. They're the perfect partner for a well made meal and a 'perker-upper' for a not so perfect one! you can use any type of ingredients ..the choice is yours..
After each and every round up the host will choose winner and will make winners dish....I will make that dish too, and in the end (about 6 months) I'll have my complete thali...
Every event comes with a prize, so when my thali is complete I will give the value of that one thali to someone else in the world who doesn't have the blessing of even a small amount of the food on the thali...The money will go to UNICEF....
