I was not very sure of what I was getting into when I started this blog. I already had a lot on my plate with a newborn at home and a busy life but I just wanted to do this. I began with the idea of documenting all the recipes that my mom and my mother-in-law gave me so that may be one day if my daughter asks for one then she can find it. But I really was not expecting that this would lead to something much much more than that. The name Indian Simmer, which I and A came up with one evening sipping coffee, has become my identity today. Today a lot of people know me more as Indian Simmer than Prerna Singh and I think that's my biggest achievement. This blog, along with me, has come a long way in the past ten months and it all happened because of YOU! You who always appreciate and motivate me to do something better. So I just want to thank you for being here, for all your wonderful messages and for clicking on that link every time you saw an update from Indian Simmer.
Reading some of my favorite blogs, I got an idea that I loved and thought was cool, so I wanted to do something similar here at Indian Simmer too. Since this post is mostly about you and the love you have shown to this blog, I am listing the recipes that you liked the most during the year. Although I can barely call this list as the "Most Liked Recipes of 2010" because this blog itself came into existence after the year 2010 began, let me just call it the "Top 10 Recipes You Liked on Indian Simmer EVER!"
So here's the countdown:
10: Tomato Tadka dal and Green Tomato Chutney
A simple lentil preparation made in Indian homes almost every day, kicked up a notch with tangy tomato flavor and some spicy tomato chutney.
