We, a group of bloggers, have successfully completed yet another Mega Marathon. It was a month long of continuous posts except for sundays. The journey was a learning experience. It was intense at certain point of time and challenging at other times. Most of it was pure bliss to enjoy some surprisingly new and rare snacks. Special thanks to Srivalli and the rest of the group.

The whole month was divided into 4 weeks. The first week was dedicated to sweets keeping in mind the upcoming Navratri and Diwali in mind. 

The second week was to dish out snacks from any Indian state and I picked Odisha. 

The third week was to post snacks without any restrictions. 

The fourth and the final week with 8 recipes was the challenging one and was unique. All of the participants were to post some mandatory snacks which were announced earlier giving enough time for research, so to say. Each one of us came up with different variations of the same snack and it was a delight to learn the variety.

Before going into the recap, here are the recaps of the past Mega Marathons I have participated in ..

Now let us recap the culinary journey of september 2019 and enjoy the treats..

  2. The recap reminded me again that those are some of the best chandrakanthalu I have seen. :) You have put together a fantastic collection of sweets and snacks. By picking Odisha, you introduced to us some of the traditional but not well known recipes. Now I know where to go if I am looking for the recipes belonging to that state. :) I enjoyed running the marathon with you and looking forward to your recipes this month.
