The Surprise- April Challenge!

This is sort of going to be different this time…

For those of you’ll who are new to these challenges, all you’ll have to do is select something from the list, make it, prepare a post by the last week of that month and publish it. A linking tool will be open during the last week and you’ll can share your recipes๐Ÿ˜Š There will be 1 or more judges to judge the challenge and I’ll be making a post with some of the best features.

You’ll have to choose numbers instead of recipes. The numbers range from 1 to 30๐Ÿ˜Š. Choose some random one to see what recipe you have got…The list is already made, so I won’t give you’ll anything random. Asย  you choose the number, your recipe will open up in the list. Don’t forget your numbers plz!!

The only clue I can give you all is that all the recipes are veg๐Ÿ˜Š and in case you want to make it non-veg, then there is absolutely no problem

        Liked by 1 person

        1. They stuff the baighgan but you could try something different. You could Cook the eggplant and make a crust with it, something similar to Kofta and stuff the stuffing I guess

                    Liked by 2 people

                    1. A lot of people use grated cheese as opposed to curd cheese. Mozarella will do but feel free to be adventurous! I have seen restaurants with many variations of the poutine. La Poutinerie specializes in Poutine. It’s a way of life. http://www.jaimelapoutine.ca. It’s in French but the pictures should make you hungry!
