Watermelon rind halwa, my recipe published in the Newspaper, My 100th blog post : 

Hello Everyone 🙂

First of all Gratitude 🙏

It is with great pleasure that I share this post of mine with you all.. especially because this is my 100th blog post in my journey of two years as a food blogger.

Few days back one of my recipes, watermelon rind halwa got published in a news paper.

This recipe is ‘leftover ka make over’, where I used rind of watermelon to make halwa out of it, by adding few more ingridients. It became instant hit with my viewers

That was when I decided to share my happiness with you all in the form of my 100th blog post.

This feat would not have been possible without the love support and motivation of you all.

I really feel blessed and inspired by all the encouragement and love showered by all of you, through your likes and comments on my facebook page, on my website as well as on my Instagram account.

I still remember the day when I first started blogging and shared my first post!!

The nervous excitement and the mixed bag of emotions that I felt at that time, cannot be explained in words!!

It was akin to a small child performing on a stage for the first time or like a debutant actor/ singer’s first film releasing.

Because when one is showcasing his/ her talents for the first time, we the artistic people always worry about how their labour of love would be received by the people. Wheather our work would be appreciated or not … will we get bouquets or brickbats for what we are presenting before the world is always our concern!!

But I must say I am so thankful to all my viewers and followers, who lapped up every post of mine and complimented me with an open heart..which inspired me to go on and reach to my 100th blog post 😊

Blogging has always been my passion and now it has become an integral part of my life.

I so enjoy writing, creating innovative and healthy recipes..cooking them, plating them in an asthetic way and clicking pictures, collecting knick knacks from the places I travel to..to go along as props in my blogs..presenting them before you all, and waiting with baited breath for your lovely comments to pour in 😊

And while I kept writing blogs and participating in various online cooking contests .. winning accolades and prizes for my recipes..I kept sharing my joy in form of recipe posts with you all on my social media pages.

It gives me immense satisfaction sharing my joy with you all, who played a major role in making my recipes and blog deserving winners!!

Condensed milk 1/4 cup

Milk powder 1 Tbsp

Slivered Pistachios 4-5

Uncover and check the rind after 5 minutes. Again saute it on high flame for few minutes and keep cooking till  it turns golden brown.
