Hi Ashwini,

Nice roundup.But I thought my entry(the coconut buns)should be classified under snacks?Coz they are far from being a dessert!The filling is not sweet,it is savoury..:)what do you say?:)

A great round-up!

A suggestion to make it easier for Firefox users like me: we don't see the name of the dish when the mouse hovers over the image. FF does not display the alt attribute on hover because it follows the standards for the alt attribute. It does, however, display the contents of the title attribute. Please could you update the images adding a title attribute that has the same contents as the alt attribute?

Wow what a fare! Here in Blr. when we visit someone's home they give bettle leaves and coconuts. I used to get fed up with trying to find interesting things to make with them. So now this is my solution.
Ashwini thanks a bunch for including my recipe though it was a late entry. I will try to take a snap at the earliest.

Where are you? Why is everyone disappearing after the jfi round-up? I wonder what happened to santhi & vineela.

Ashwini I am echoing what RP has said, I was wondering too..

3:00 PM  
Blogger Ashwini said...

RP, Indo - the JFI curse?? :-D
I am fine; we were traveling for the past few weeks so I couldn't update my blog at all. Thanks so much for asking - means a lot to me.
PS - I keep checking to see if Vineela & Santhi are back ... don't know why they stopped blogging completely.
