Announcing event- Virtual Party- Snacks!

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

When Shabitha asked me if I could host a virtual party event, I was really excited! I mean, who is going to say no to a party? And when I can choose my own theme, all I could think of was snacks :)
Why not, Diwali is coming up next month, with navrathri(dasara) celebrations going on till next week and then there is saraswathi pooja followed by Halloween, I can only imagine the wonderful aromas coming out of each and every kitchen. And soon we are going into the holiday season with Thanksgiving and Christmas, right? Have you got any special snack in mind to make it for the holiday season? Share it with us!!

So, the rules are quite simple. Post a recipe with snacks as a theme- could be anything, fried, baked, steamed, savory or sweet! It need not be a snack made for festivals or holidays, it could be your everyday evening snack or your kid’s favorite :)

Link that recipe to this event announcement page and also to Shabita’s original event announcement.

Once that is done, email me at with the following details:

Recipe Name:
Recipe Link(URL of the post):

Multiple entries are welcome! The more the better.
