Independence Day Food Parade Celebrations

On August 15th, 1947, our nation came in to our own hands. Finally we were free of uninvited people, at least physically. Since then August 15th became a day for feasts, festivities and for patriotic parades.

This year, I wanted to share the exhilarating feeling of joy and happiness through a fabulous food parade. Our food culture shows not only how diverse we are, but also shows how much patience, perseverance and perfection we have. With 40 or more food blogs (a budding new community in already well established blog medium), I thought we could all come together to celebrate this special day in a colorful way. Thanks for responding to my call with equal if not more enthusiasm and sending me these beautiful recipes from “The Land of Billion Recipes ~ Mother India”.

I’ve styled the food parade in a classic theme, with recipe photos for your viewing pleasure and complementing classical Indian music (you tube videos) for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!

  54. Oh, how beautiful it all is! Thank you all and especially Indira!

    (I will have to show Zak that you included a clip of Hariprasaji playing bansuri–Zak was lucky to go to a concert and see him play in College Park, Maryland. Unfortunately, I was out of town, so I did not get to go, but he still talks about what a wonderful evening it was, and how sweet the older man who sat next to him was. (Zak was having to wear his cataract glasses, and so couldn’t see well, so the nice gentleman, every time there was something of note, leaned over and whispered it to Zak so he could “see” it in his imagination.)

    Comment by Barbara — August 15, 2006 @ 7:01 pm

  55. Happy Independence Day. Indira, great work. I liked your idea and the presentation is neat. Wanted to participate, but was out of town and could not. may be i can join in an another parade. i hope you will come up with something soon

    You have outdone yourself! Awesome job. All the recipes and pictures look so delicious.
    I have been so busy with work lately. I so wanted to participate in your Food parade. I even made Masala Dosa – a speciality of Karnataka and took pictures last night but have not had a chance to upload the pictures nor blog about it 🙁 Will try to blog the recipe and pictures sooner or later.
    Anyways, I am going to be up tonight looking up all the wonderful recipes. Thanks for hosting all these wonderful events.

    I am sorry, I could not participate in the parade. My house has been full of guests right from the beginning of July. Haven’t been able to cook the things that I wanted to. Am not blogging as often as I want to either. 🙁
    I salute the enthusiasm of all participating bloggers. And a big applause to you for having come up with this wonderful idea and then presenting it in such a beautiful roundup. Great job!

  75. […] From language we move to food. Mahanadi organized a food blog event to celebrate India’s independence. Hop over to Mahanadi’s post to see a list of what each one of these bloggers cooked up. You will be positively starved and probably want to whip up some interesting recipe yourself! Here is Lulu Loves London’s recipes of tricolor rice. […]
