It was Nupur, who first came up with this healthy idea of Fried to Favourite. Basically the idea is to cut down the maximum amount of oil from our day to day food. Most of us are addicted to these fatty fried food and get used to it. At one point we realize that enough of these fried foods, let's start a healthy life style. Healthy eating doesn't mean we have to compromise our favourite food completely. The better way is to find an alternative method, so that we can enjoy our favourite food without any compromise in our healthy life style. So the idea behind this event is to choose any one or two of our favourite food and find an alternative by baking or steaming.
Actually Baked Onion rings was our last month challenge, although I completed everything well ahead of time, unfortunately couldn't post it on time, so here I'm posting it about a month late. Enjoy this for now, we are also ready with this month challenge. If you are eager to find more details about this event click here.
