Thali Special

>> Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Dear friends,
I would like to introduce in my blog the "Thali Special". With the festive season year long, there will be so many preparations almost every now and then and other than those days, I might not get a chance to prepare those special dishes on regular days. So, with this entry, I would like to share my thali on those special days.

Items in the thali are (from top left) : Garelu, Allam Pachadi, Nimmakai Pulihora(lemon rice), Beetroot Koora, Kanda Bachali Koora, Mudda Pappu, Avakai , Rice , (outside the place from top) : Ghee, Nimmakai Charu (lemon rasam), Totakoora Pulusu, Curd.

I would also like to take this opportunity to ask you dear friends to share your thali(s) also (if you are interested). With this we will get to know the different festive recipes that we prepare in each of our houses and thus knowing different customs and traditions involved. Hope you will like it.
I will give the detailed explanation of each recipe in my future posts. Keep visiting.


Nothing can come between the friendship of best friends. They laugh in each other's happiness, cry when one is hurt, offer help without thinking twice and thank God that they found each other.

Lubna has tagged me to write a beautiful poem on friendsip. I am not that great in writing/expressing in a poetic way. So, have searched for some beautiful quotes in the internet and am posting one that i liked amongst a few. This is a good start for me to write about friendship as I complete 3years of my stay in the US.
You can read about it here

Here it goes :

When I cry, you are there to help me out
When I am happy, you are there to hear me shout
When I grin you know that I am really mad
You can always tell when I am sad
You are the best friend I have ever had!

You are there with me through thick and thin
You offer a helping hand when I am dim
You patiently listen when I want to talk
You tell me I am good even when I have been bad
You are the best friend I have ever had!

So hear me out when I say
You are the light in my day
You are the moon in my night
That made my life so bright
With you I am always glad
You are the best friend I have ever had!

I would like to dedicate this friendship note to my 3 best friends
Saritha,Sunitha and Parvathi whom I met in 3 different stages of my life and have been with me almost during all my hard times physically, mentally and emotionally. Thank you all 3 of you, for being on my side, for trusting me in all means and for accepting me the way I am. Thank you so much.

Also, I specially thank Lubna, for tagging me about a beautiful relationship.
Thanks to all my dear blogger friends who constantly drop in to my budding blog and encourage me with your wonderful comments and suggestions.
