I am so happy that I got a good number of entries, and everyone helped in making the event successful.

There were a few last minute entries and a few technical difficulties, due to which I am having to create the whole poll again, and which is taking some time, and as I won't be able to get to it till late tonight to do it!.

I will be working on it tonight and hopefully and successfully by tomorrow it will be up and ready for everyone to vote!

Sorry again....but please keep a look out on this I will be posting again tomorrow about the VOTING process and the link!!

Today is the third day of the blogging marathon, and I thought nothing could be better than 'Karam Annam'

This is what I call Comfort and Healing food. Whenever I feel sick or am tired of eating anything else, I will go straight ahead and make this. The mix in the chilli powder and has so many good stuff that when you eat it if you have a cold or when your tongue feels bland, you are sure to love it!

Its spicy, its garlicky and its overall yummy!

My Mom makes this even for breakfast in the morning with leftover rice. It feels really nice to have it in the mornings, especially cold winter mornings, when you feel like having something warm and spicy.

The whole healing properties comes from 'Masala Karam' also known as "Goddu Karam' in many parts of Andhra. Many people use only this karam or chilli powder instead of the regular plain chilli powder in curries or regular everyday cooking.

If my Mom is here she would use this only. As for me, I use regular chilli powder regularly and use this in special dishes. It also tastes awesome when added besan or chanaga pindi while making bajjis or pakodas.

So here is the recipe for my Mom's Masala Karam Podi and Karam Podi Annam.

OK I make it spicy, but for the rice add only how much you can handle :))
