AWED Roundup

  Hello Foodies,
        It's been nearly a month later I'm opening my blog and it makes me feel so good.  Ooops actually I forget to announce about my break.  For a long time I have been saying that we are moving to India and now we are finally in India . Yes we moved to India on March 31st, we haven't settled yet here.  I still have the tiredness of relocation , but when it comes to blogging I feel like I have got all my energy back.
   Although I wasn't blogging in the past few days, I was still going through all the blogs silently and good to see so many budding bloggers with yummy recipes. I have to say I'm still on my break in blogging but I don't want to delay the roundup for AWED too long.
  Although I requested with DK for the delay in the roundup, I know the viewers and participants will be eagerly waiting for the roundup, so here I'm with the roundup for AWED- Indian Cuisine.  As we all know AWED is started by DK and it features different cuisines every month.  For the month of March I got the opportunity for hosting AWED- Indian Cuisine.  Thank you DK for giving me this opportunity, it's been a real pleasure for me to host this event, we have received many wonderful entries from starter to dessert, so take your time to go through each and every recipe individually and enjoy the world of Indian Cuisine.
