Knock-knock! Someone's at the door….

…. And that's me.:) I've been blog hopping, if that's a word. Reading recipes of fellow bloggers and trying them out within the confines of my tiny kitchen. Not too difficult when someone else has painstakingly tried and tested the recipe to perfection and blogged a step-by-step pictorial presentation of the same. Sometimes I add my own twist to the recipe, sometimes it's cooked per se and sometimes I take pictures. Did you read "sometimes"?! Yeah, my endeavours turned out well and the dishes were gobbled up before I could reach for my camera….!

So here are those delicious treats which deserve a thumbs-up, my small way of telling all you wonderful cooks, YOU ROCK!!!!

Tandoori Vegetables from Coffee's Khazana of recipes. Tried and tested over and again. Recently made it with bell peppers, onions and chicken, this recipe is for keeps!

Vazha Chundu Cutlets from My Treasure, My Pleasure. Annita came up with a wonderful idea of using banana flowers in cutlets. Nope, didn't tell what the cutlets were made from until they were wiped clean!! Too bad, I don't have a picture…

Hara bhara kebabs from Seema's Recipe Junction. I added green peas which is the only variation to the recipe. A good way to have greens. Did I hear someone say 'loaded with fats'… Munched away watching the Dubai Open Tennis, photos totally forgotten!

Spanakopita from Porcini Chronicles. Hey, now I know some Greek cuisine! The tastebuds loved it! Now I have to hide in shame, I didn't take pictures of this either!
