Two Years Of Blogging

Happy birthday to my blog.Can't believe that i completed 2 years of blogging here.Thanks to blogger for giving me a platform to show my cooking skills and thanks to lovely readers and friends who take time to read and trying out my recipes.Thanks a lot for the people who take time to give me the feed back.

In the journey of 2 years i did 256 post and around 260 recipes.Need 1 more follower to reach 100 followers,thank u girls/guys for following me.

The top 6 post which get maximum hits are Hyderabadi Bagara Rice,Kadai Vegetable,Hyderabadi Dum Gosh Biryani,Mutton Paya Soup,Eggless Cake with Milk Powder and Mirchi Ka Salan.So out of six recipes four are must cooked recipe in any hyderabadi household.

We always celebrate any occasion with sweet but i will celebrate my blog birthday with my favourite veggie ie brinjal/Vankaya.
