3 In 1 Biryani ~ Spicy Treats Turns One !!!

          I am Happy to share with you all that My Very lil' space had completed one year of successful blogging. Feeling so proud and excited :) But not feeling well by both physically and mentally to celebrate this great occasion. Yet want to share with you all and also my Heart felt Thanks to everyone for your constant support and encouragement. so far i managed to share 340 posts and got so many friends/fellow bloggers.
Its really so amazing that i was blogging for the past 365 days, my very first post was Vazhaipoo Vadai, i started blogging with full passion , my curiosity was to share my known recipes to all. In the beginning i never bothered about my pictures, only 2 pictures- one far view n close up view that's it.. Dunno anything more than that. Later after getting more friends and walking through their spaces i learnt myself that pictures also play a very important role to attract,admire n appreciate their recipes. Hope at the end of one year i am good at my pictures :)

       I got many awards from my fellow bloggers,won some giveaways also really those are cherishing moments. Above all i got some handful of good friends who really inspired me through their wonderful comments, constantly supporting me. And i believe some are real criticizers of my space. A very grateful Thanks to You dearies. I should not forgot to thank my H and Kids who really support and tolerate all my inventions :) Yep, i have tried so many recipes for the first time(blog sake) and got successful. They really love all my recipes. My H helped me in many ways for blogging and to mention he got me a DSLR !!
      I didn't make any special recipes for this occasion but i had this Biryani recipe in my draft for long time. Biryani , is almost everyone's fav and its a special menu right?? So thought to share it now.
