It was a sweet and savoury-filled Deepavali for us at chennailivenews.com as our Deepavali recipe contest was a runaway hit.
We have people contributing recipes for the usual sweets like Mysore pak, cashew cake, badam halwa and milk cake, but also some rare ones like ragi dry fruit halwa, Ashoka halwa and maida halwa.
It was the same story for the savouries also – if there was one participant sending a mullu thenkuzhal recipe, another sent a dry fruit mixture.
It was fun going through the recipes and quite enlightening too, declared our judge.
The winners for the 2011 Deepavali recipe contest are:
1 D Vimala – Ashoka halwa
2 Srimathi Sethuraman – Ragi dry fruit halwa
3 Hema Nagarajan – Healthy nuts ball
