A big Thank You to Priya  for sharing this Sunshine Award with me, its my very first award too :))
Your energy and enthusiasm is really infectious and motivates me to push myself!!  Keep blogging....

I would like to share my Sunshine Award with the following 12 fellow blogger friends: 
Sushma Mallya, Nithu Bala, KhaugiriJagruti, Pavithra, Muskaan Sadhana, Pari, Ruchika, Sangi, Suma, Prajakta (PJ), Sailaja. Your words of encouragement keep me going everyday!!!
These Award Winners have to do the following :
1) Use the logo within your post .
2) Pass on to atleast 12 other bloggers .
3) Add a link to the nominees in your post.
4) Let the nominees know of their award
5) Share the love and link to the friend, who has passed this award to you.

Nithu of Nithu's Kitchen shared these awards with me......... a big Thank You to her too!!! It feels really nice to get so many new friends in such a short period of time :)
UPDATE: Yesterday, Priya also shared this award with me :) Thanks Priya, I am honored!! 
ANOTHER UPDATE: Anu has shared this award with me too!! feel so lucky to have such great friends around, Thank you Anu!

The Honest Scrap award comes with a set of rules:
a) I must brag about it.
b) I have to display the badge on my blog and link to the one who tagged me to prove that I didn't tag myself (how pathetic that would be!)
c) Share 10 things about myself.
d) Pass the award to other fellow blogger friends by visiting their site.

I would love to share both the above awards with these fellow blogger friends:
Priya, Swathi, Jyothi, Champa , Padhu , Cool Lassie, Nupur, Kiran, Vaishnavi & Sivaranjani, and Cardamom ,   Thanks for all your appreciation, comments and suggestions!!

These are the 10 Things I would like to share about myself :
I am a shy and private person, a voracious reader, love to paint, nature and outdoor lover, value true friends, am a prankster, love to gaze at stars at night, love to listen to music, was actively involved in sports, believe that each day of life is a gift from god!!!
Last week, this post was accidentally published while I was composing it. My very good friend Priya asked me about it and was keen to know the recipe, so I am publishing it in this post because she is sharing her very special first award with me :))  

Sabudana Khichadi is typically made for a fast/upvaas. To make this khichadi, Soak 1 cup sabudana in water for at least 5-6 hours or overnight. It should be fluffy and not soggy when done. Heat 1 tbsp ghee/oil in a pan. Add 1 tsp jeera, 2-3 green chillies, and 1 boiled and cubed potato. Saute for 2-3 mins. Add 1/2 cup ground peanut powder to the soaked sabudana and add this mixture to the pan. Stir for 8-10 mins on medium heat. Take care it does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Add 1 tsp sugar and salt to taste. Stir for 2-3 mins. Add 2-3 tsp of lemon juice, garnish with cilantro and serve hot.   

I was really busy for the last couple of days and might be for a few days more so I may not be able to post recipes frequently. Things should hopefully get to normal by next week....... maybe earlier :)) Ciao......
