I’m Berry Berry Clicked!

Gauri (despairing): “Another Click event? I’m not even through admiring the last one! And I havent posted anything since my last entry. And I’m not even around the next few days…”

(The moaning goes on for a bit.)

Random blog reader (frowning at just photos and no regular recipes on this site): “tsk tsk tsk…. these wannabe food bloggers… clogging up cyberspace… creating a ‘jam’ I tell you.”

Gauri (determined not to let down her blog): “Never mind that I dont have any recipes recently… Even though I’m stuffing myself silly on some gorgeous food these past few days… I ‘will’ post them ‘soon’ 😀 . So don’t lose heart, dear random blog reader, to tide you till the next recipe appears, I have a lovely picture to enter Click yet again; something ‘berry berry’ red, and ‘berry berry’ enticing…”

Berry Berry Red, Berry Berry Enticing

berry berry red, berry berry enticing

This pic is from a strawberry farm in the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia. Understandably, we had a berry overload towards the end of our holiday.

Berries in abundance are a delightful site, of course. But the single red, fruit here makes it look all the more enticing, methinks!


A Handvo pot… Clicked

One cool event this. Click. Where you strut your blog’s photos according to a monthly theme.

And this is my entry.

A Handvo pot…

This is an aluminium contraption in which handvo – a Gujju snack – is prepared. The closest I can get to describing the handvo is that it is a savoury cake, chock full of grains and vegetables, spices, some oil, and a bit of soda and buttermilk for leavening. It is topped with sesame and coriander leaves which bake the top to a crisp. The cooking contraption, I think, is somewhat like a chiffon cake/ angel food cake pan – a very deep tube. It sits on a plate filled with damp sand to help conduct the heat better. It also has a hole in the middle, where you can see the flame rising from in the image. This hole helps cook the center of the handvo. What you see above is the handvo batter being setup for cooking.

Coming to the photograph, since this event is about photography, I would have personally preferred to enter this image, which shows metal in all its glory! But the absence of a culinary context prevented me, and I settled for the handvo pot.
