The first ever Indian Food Bloggers Meet is just round the corner. The organizers Arundati, Revati, Aparna, & Nandita are working round the clock to leave no stone unturned to make this a mega successful event. Happening in Bangalore on Aug 1st and 2nd, this two day program covers a wide variety of topics right from blogging techniques to photography to food styling. The meet is supposed to be attended by enthusiastic food lovers who are good cooks, esteemed cook book writers, publishers, professional food photographers & stylists and social media activists from India and across the globe.
It is really getting hot in here now. There is so much of excitement all around and everyone is running to the kitchen to cook up a storm. Yes, the organizers ensure that we are on our toes during these last few days to grab some exciting goodies. KitchenAid India has announced the KitchenAid India Contest where we need to create a recipe using plums.
Have been struggling to get some good plums becuase of a hectic work schedule but somehow managed it in the nth hour. Thats so me, by the way 🙂
8-10 firm but ripe red plums, cut into 1/4-inch wedges,
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and coarsely chopped,
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander & mint,
1 tbsp fresh lime juice, plus more if needed,
1 tbsp sugar, plus more if needed,
1 tsp minced garlic,
1 tsp finely grated peeled fresh ginger,
1-2 green chillies,
Salt and pepper to taste
Stir together plums, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice, sugar, garlic, ginger, green chillies, salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Adjust flavor with lime juice and sugar if needed. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
I am so looking forward to meeting all the bloggers in person who have inspired me over the years. Ahhh….just 7 more days to go 😀
