Arusuvai Friendship Chain- Special Teatime!

The best part of ahaar has being part of this vibrant foodie community, being part of food-related discussion, trying new recipes, and sharing tried and tested ones. But all this wouldn't exist without the people who form the community.

You know where I am going with this, right? Arusuvai Friendship Chain, a cool event started by The Yum Blog and Bhags and Bharati where bloggers send "mystery" ingredients to each other. This exciting offer to taste new ingredients and cook with it, has caught the imagination of the food bloggers over the past few months. Read about my previous Arsuvai Friendship Ingredient recipe here.

Indira's goodies

When I came home today after a long day work, a delicious goodie bag from Indira of Mahanandi was waiting for me . As I opened the package, packets and dabbas filled with different goodies came out. There's Pappula Podi, Muruku, Mamouls, Karachi Halwa, Soan Papadi, Moong Dal, and a beautiful card. Thank you Indira!

Impromptu, I decided to upgrade the evening to a special teatime with Indira's goodies and tea in a pretty cup I usually reserve for special occasions. :) It was perfect end to the day!

  1. When we started Arusuvai, I never knew that it would become so popular! :) The warmth we feel while sending or receiving a surprise packet from a virtual friend is inexplicable! I am so happy that I too contributed in a small way to spread happiness in the blogosphere! Enjoy your goodies mandira! :))
