Celebrating with Food

The Ganesh Chaturthi Food special

Tuesday, August 25, 2009Me! In words

The one thing good about festivals is the food that we get to eat. In the case of Ganesh Chaturthi this year our neighbours seemed to go all out on the cooking. And since they had a hint that we were a bit lazy to go through all the trouble, they were more than generous with what they had made. Here is a look at what we feasted on.

Cotton soft, hot idlis, straight of the steamer, with coconut chutney.

Needless to say, wish we had a celebration each day.
