I know I have set the stage for a lot of drama! What to do life has to be spiced up all the time.
I have picked up the humble potato to be cooked for all of September 2016 which is going to be a Cooking Carnival!
If you are landing here for the first time, just to update you, we are a group of Food bloggers doing a Blogging Marathon every month, 3 days all 4 weeks, each month. However, during April and September, we do 26 days of nonstop blogging with Sundays off.
We have been doing the Mega Blogging Marathon since April 2013,
When I had announced the Mega BM theme and took the example of cooking 1 ingredient through the month with potato, I didn’t think I will actually do it. It was only when I was talking to Padma when she teased me on my wording, I realized I could actually do it.
Growing up, I wasn’t a fan of Potato. It was hard for my friends to believe that I never had Potato Roast growing up. Amma was always a master of cooking in balance. Since potato used to appearing as Poori Kalangu, and in other kurmas, pulaos etc, she never made it exclusively as a roast.
It was only my marriage and kids I have got so used to potato podimas, roast etc being cooked almost twice a week. Hubby Dear loves potato, so when I selected this, I realised I could make him very happy.
I am also so unprepared and will be cooking as I go from now. I have just couple of them done. My BM Buddies tease that I cook a storm and get done with 6 to 7 in one shot. I did that for A to Z Maharatraian Sweets. I don’t think even Hubby dear will appreciate a table with only Potatoes on it.
To give myself a challenge, I ended up with a subtheme featuring Potatoes. So look out for that!
