Announcing SWEET SERIES

Sweet is one of the five basic tastes and is almost universally regarded as a pleasurable experience. As a token of my love for sweets, I am announcing the event 'Sweet series', with an attempt to compile the innumerable variety of sweets. I have divided the sweets into 8 broad categories. One category for each month. The categories are,




6. Halwa, kathli, burfi & peda

7. Baked sweets - Cakes, pies, cookies, strudels etc and chocolate & toffees

8. Sweet with rice/wheat as main ingredient, diabetic friendly sweets and other sweets that does not come under any of the aforesaid categories.

This month category is Puran Poli & sweet chapathis/rotis.


To participate in this event, please have these in mind.

1. Cook anything sweet that come under the 'category of the month' - Puran Poli & sweet chapathis/rotis and post the recipe with picture on your blog. Recipes posted from Apr 29 2008 to June 30th 2008 will be accepted. Multiple entries welcome.

2. Add a link back to this event announcement. Feel free to use the logo.

4. Non bloggers can e-mail me the recipe and the picture and I will include it in the round up.

5. Already posted sweets will be accepted provided NEW POST is created (between now and june 30th) and linked to this announcement. But it will be really fun to create a new dish!

You can count me in.

Diabetic friendly category will be good addition to the list. For one month we will cook with non sugar - sweet treats. Just came to my mind :)

Mythreyee said...

That is a wonderful section: Diabetic friendly sweets. I have added that to the post. Thank you so much.

easycrafts said...

Just mailed u with my entries...hope u got them

Srivalli said...

Mythreyee, will laddoos fall under the second category?

Mythreyee said...

Boondhi Laddus come under deep fried category. The second category includes sweets/laddus that are not deep fried. For example: smalls balls made out of different flours as well as poha balls with jaggery as a binding agent etc. My previous comment that I deleted, I had boondhi laddu in my mind.

Hi Mythreyee,

This is Sailaja. Still now I didn't participate in any event. Even I like to send 'Puran Poli' to the event. But to send,I think, I have to make tht again. Because, My pural poli got torn when I made at tht time. Will try to make by this month end and will send to you. Thank you for motivating me to participate ... Mythreyee.

Sailu.
