My "Mithai Tamasha" !!

Food is so visual ...and so why can't Recipe writing be ??

Proud as a peacock I am, to be a trumpet blower !!
Yes my Indian Sweets Recipe Illustrations have been published
in my favorite online magazine called The Indian Trumpet.
 It is an e-magazine which captures
 the color, culture and chaos of India.
 It blows the trumpet and makes a lot of noise about all things Indian :)

I fell in love with this magazine instantly
 for it truly... truly satisfies my lust for colors, and brightness, 
besides pleasing my heart which is oh so very Indian !!
Each page is so vibrant and oozes out so much energy
 that you can't resist flipping through them again and again and again :)

So here is my 'Mithai Tamasha" (Sweet Show).

Eid celebrations demand "Phirni" for sure :)

Favorite sweet of Lord Ganesha 
and so an irresistible part of "Ganesh Chaturthi"

"Onam" Sadya and Payasams a delicious affair!!

"Navratri Bhog becomes special with this sweet nutty kheer :)

A mouth watering sweet for the "Durga Puja " festivities.

 "Dussehra" and Jalebi...a bond unbreakable.

An Integral part of the famous "Karva Chauth" festival.

 Gulab Jamun makes the "Diwali " fun and festivities even more special.

 So friends how do you find this "Mithai Tamasha" ??
Do try out some of these recipes and I am sure you are going to love them !!

And yes , don't forget to read The Digital Trumpet.
Flip to page number 50 for this sweet affair of mine !!

The rhythm of festivals begins...
the seasons will change 
and the time will take its own course...
and I am here again after my vacations...
all geared up with my arty stuff.
Hope you all are enjoying your days too :)
