Announcing Sweet series - Deep fried or steam cooked sweets and round up of Sweet series - Chikki and laddu

Before I present to you the beautiful entries that I received for the sweet series chikki and laddu, I would like to announce the next roundup.

Sweet series - Deep fried or steam cooked sweets

Please read the following rules before sending your entries.

1. Cook anything sweet that come under the category of this month - 'Deep fried or steam cooked sweets' and post the recipe with picture on your blog. The sweet that you are sending must be either deep fried or steam cooked only. Example, boondhi laddu, jangri, jilabi etc for deep fried and kozhukattai, modhaka etc for steam cooked sweets.
