Below are the guidelines for the theme:

For this Mega BM Edition, all participants will be following the below mentioned pattern. The themes for each week will be the same for all participants.

Week 1 will be Any Indian Sweet from any state or cuisine.
Week 2 will 6 different snacks from the same Indian State.
Week 3 will be 6 different snacks of your choice from any state or cuisine.
Week 4 will be 8 fixed snacks as given in the sheet below. All participants will follow the same pattern, from Andhra to West Bengal.

The dishes selected for all the weeks can be authentic or to some extent a fusion. Since there are so many ways and recipes to make the same dish, from the Week 4 list of dishes, if you have already posted that dish on your site, you can share a different way the same dish is prepared.
