Republic Day

~ Happy Republic Day ~

On the occasion of India's 60th Republic Day ,
Little Food Junction salutes the Nation ,the Constitution
& the immortal National Heros for their devotion and
sacrifices. Hope peace , love and harmony reigns in all
the parts of the world today n everyday.
Happy Republic Day to all !!!

Todays food art creation is a symbolic representation of the
4 directions of the Indian republic - the saffron colored
carrot halva is a favorite delicacy from West , the rice depicts the
staple food of East , the green sprouts depict the pulse loving
North n the spiral Murukku on top symbolizes the savories from
South , n together they combine to make our national Flag n a
well balanced Indian thali ( food ).

My India , My Pride

  12. lovely sytling, Smita but can you really eat this thali...this combination?

  13. Hi Anonymous ,
    Thanks for liking the styling .
    Salted rice topped with clarified butter ( desi ghee n black rock salt ) n mixed with sprouts tastes lovely , my little one often loves this combo ( she is not that fond of cooked dal ) so I substitute the proteins to her in this manner .
    Dfntly I could have subsituted the sprouts with a cooked green dal but that wud hav surely not given a smile on my lil ones' face - Lol !!
