Shubh Deepavali to All of you lovely people out there!!!…May the goddesses of light and wealth always shine on you(and me) 🙂 The lovely blogger, Menu Today, kindly loaned me this photograph to use and I had saved it for the round up. Click on the photograph for more diwali sites in singapore.
Here’s the round up.I know what you are thinking. you are thinking “Finally”. Yeah, Yeah, I know its alittle late in the day. but, it is that day!! I have been working all of yesterday and today to get it up, you know!! Boy, am I glad I could finish it up in time. That is my story and I am sticking to it…. 😉
Seriously,I have loved being the host of this event and am really grateful for that chance (Thanks, Indira!!). I have always wanted to host a event, but didn’t want to commit to doing it on a regular basis. So, an event like this, where the hosts round-robbin, is really spectacular for people like me. Also, it came around the time when I was kind of giving up on the hope that I can really cultivate any activity other than raising the kids. By pushing myself to host this event, I have realised how much I love cooking and how much I love blogging about what I cook. So, hereon forward, I am going to make a concerted effort to post regularly. Which basically means that the spouse would have to chip in more than usual with the kids. Spouse. are you reading this????.. :). I have also realised that I love hosting this event. You guys have been wonderful , making it a breeze to guide the event.So much so,that I would like to do it again. Maybe I will host next diwali , too. What do you say?
Moving on to the round up, this round up only has entries that I have received on or before the 19th. All entries received after that will be included in the post diwali round up to be done on the 28th. I have, also, not included entries that I know have been posted by individual bloggers as entries to this event, but not been mailed to me. People, can’t include it in the round up without it being officially entered into the event and the only way to do that is to MAIL the entry to me. Do it before the 28th for the next roundup.
I have divided all the 30 entries into Sweet and Savoury . Enjoy!!!!
Till the next post then, people!!!
Thank you Vee for hosting this fabulous Deepavali Event. You made this festival special for us food bloggers with this theme. I really enjoyed participating in this month’s Jihva and I am sure all other fellow food bloggers would say the same thing.
I liked the way you organized this event and it would be wonderful if you would like to take up the Deepavali event every year. Past, Present and Me is going to be Food bloggers Deepavali home. Yes and yes!
Your creations are always interesting and I am excited to hear that you are going to blog regularly from now on.
Thanks and wishing you and your family a wonderful, shubha Deepavali!

This is such a great idea. It’s like having a Diwali cookbook without actually going to the shops!! This time we went to a restaurant, but I’ll know which way to roll my ladoos next year…
I have posted my entry. Please include it if you can! Thanks for the wonderful roundup and a very happy diwali
Nice work with the round up. As usual I am running late..maybe next year.
Great work on Diwali and all the best for hosting this event in the coming years. Thanks.
Hi Vee, the round up looks just beautiful! Wish I could try every one. Thanks so much for all your hard work.
Thank you for the wonderful round -up and for being such a gracious host, I’m definitely going to drop by here next year too. Same time…same place and until then Shubh Ratri !!…..hehe :-D, sudden flash of Amitabh Bachan signing off in KBC
I wonder if you have tried cooking in olive oil. There is a common misconception that olive oil is only for mediterranean food. This isn’t the case. Olive pomace oil is great for Indian food. It isn’t too expensive either – because it is used in 1/3 the quantity and is reusable 3 times. You can fry in it too. And, of course, it’s the best oil for health. Try it out. You can get it easily at http://www.leonardoolives.com . They provide the entire range of olive oil and of very high quality. And they deliver free and have a special discount for caterers! Olive oil is my new discovery as a cook. It seems you also look at cooking as a creative experience, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy experimenting with it. Try it out.
Nice round up
Oh mannnn, now I’m hungry 😀
