Rendezvous 2011

First thing first, a very warm Birthday wishes to dear Mr & Mrs. Parsai. Happy Birthday sweetest Sonal....Tum Jeeyo Hazaron Saal, Yeh Meri Hai Aarzoo ~~
One more year coming to end and overall it has been a fabulous year, towards the end of year things started to fall in place @ work front, new challenges which is actually exciting and I am all gear up for the coming year.  But here we are talking about 2011, few changes happened & I came out of my comfort zone.  And for blogging it has be a great year.  In my 3 and half years of blogging this 2011 is the year I blogged the most with less breaks and posted around 100+ recipes way ahead of my normal posts per year.  Like every year this year also I planned to do a roundup posts, but for a change discussed the same with Prathibha, Lubna and Deepa and come up with idea of posting a recipe of each month. 
Joyful January
After a long break in 2010, I started blogging for Jan with a bang, I posted few of my favourite recipes like Kofta Makhani, Beetroot Dal but then the highlight has to be Litti a traditional recipe and must during winters, served with lot of ghee and chokha it’s a wonderful meal, have it once you will become fan.
