Seven Links Game and a Tag !!

For the last few weeks what I noticed while blog hopping was that many of my friends were tagged in an interesting and fun game. Mugdha of Cooking Fundas, Sangee Vijay of Typical Indian Cooking and Vidhya of Sugar n Spice have tagged me for the same game. Thank you girls for tagging me. The blogger who is tagged in this game must select the most apt posts from his/her blog for the categories below, which are the 7 links from my blog under the following posts:


1) The Most Beautiful Post: Thandai-Holi Special
      Considering that I don't play with my camera much and neither I use Photoshop I thought I captured the pictures well. I mean these pictures look attractive to me :-).


                                                      

2) The Most Popular Post: Resturant style Shahi Paneer Recipe and Porcupine Shaped Burger
    While I picked up my restaurant style Shahi Paneer Recipe purely on the basis of number of hits and page visits basis, the Porcupine shaped Burger is in this category only because of huge sucesses that I get every time I make this for kids party. The presentation of this cute and eye-catching burger scores high points from kids. 
  

                                                                     


3) The Most controversial Post: I don't like to be under the spotlight for wrong reasons so no post in this category :-).


4) The Most Helpful Post: Well I have to pick two recipes here. First is Elo Jhelo which is a Bengali sweet but sadly it is a dying  form of art.Though very easy to make but rarely prepared in the Bengali household. I love the simplicity of this sweet which can be stored for long period. And the detailed step-by-step pictures were appreciated.
                                                        

 Second useful post has to be Eggless Cake prepared in a Pressure Cooker. I have received several requests from readers who are not bloggers to share a method of making cake without Oven, as they didn't have one. So I  had posted  this recipe on demand. Later on got many thanking notes for sharing this Pressure Cooker style.
                                                                        


5) A Post that was surprisingly Successful: This has to be one of my experiment with regular Gulab Jamuns- Nutella filled Gulab Jamuns. This improvsied and twisted version of gulab Jamun was much appreciated by my blogger friends. Being a Nutella fan I just couldn't resist myself combining the magic of nutella and soft melt-in-mouth gulab jamuns. This post was such a BIG hit !!!
                                                                           
Another Nutella based simple, humble breakfast item got great reviews was Hazelnut Spread Flower. I think what was liked most about this post was the way I had presented a simple thing. My creativity was much appreciated !!
                                                                         


6) The post that didn't get the Attention is Deserves: For some reason my Paneer Bread Roll didn't get the attention which was due :-( In fact in terms of comments also it was neglected. 
                                                               


7) A Post I'm Proud of: Replica of Hide and Seek Biscuit When I was preparing this I had a feeling this would turn out to be an excellent creation. And later when I saw the sheer number of comments then I realized how much this biscuit has touched the heart of so many people. 
                                                                           


Now comes the part where I have to Tag 7 of my blogger friends to keep the ball rolling. So here are they...

    P.S. Dinner went well with my Indian guests. It was a very enjoyable evening. I learned so much talking with them. I think they could be convinced that Americans don't only eat Mcdonald's food (laugh).

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
