Special Vegetarian Mini Lunch Thali - Virtual Birthday treat for Manjula

August has been a month of celebration with dear ones celebrating birthdays one after the other. Now it is my dear friend Manjula's birthday. Happy Birthday, Manjula!! She is one of the very good friends I have got through blogging. Facebook has a main role in helping with the growth of this friendship. The chats, the giggles, the sharing of joys, sorrows, fears, etc., etc., what not. She is such a sweet cheerful person who can lighten up any moment. She is also an enthusiastic blogger. You all might know about the ghevar and Rajasthani thali she made for the SNC challenge, the beautiful breads she challenged for HBC challenge. Also the event, "Come on- Lets Cook Buddies" she conducted in her space for the non bloggers was very successful. I am really amazed by the amount of effort she puts in each day for her blog, the cooking and the clicking with her energetic toddler around. Since it is her birthday today, we friends decided to treat her virtually with the theme Thalis. I prepared a special Vegetarian Mini Lunch Thali. 



The dishes in the thali are as follows
  1. Masal Vadai
  2. Arisi Paruppu sadam with thatta payir
  3. Yogurt Rice
  4. Apple Halwa (will post the recipe soon)
  5. Appalam
  6. Pickle
  7. Cucumber
