About Mane Adige

My photo
"Mane Adige" means "Home Food" in kannada and this blog is all about recipes that I cook. Most of the recipes I post here will be from "Mangalooru" and "Bengalooru " regions of Karnataka,India. Rest of them are the one's which I try out by improvising the recipes got from different sources.

Mane Adige turns ONE!! And... The Arusuvai surprise ingredient!!!

Friends, its been a year since I put up my first post on Mane Adige!!!!

When I started Mane Adige last year, I didn't really know how I wanted it to be... in fact, I had no plans at all for Mane Adige. But within a few weeks, I had a clear picture of what I wanted out of Mane Adige. Back then, there were hardly any bloggers from Karnataka and even fewer blogs/web sites dedicated to Karnataka/Kannada food. So, I decided to make Karnataka/Kannada food the theme of Mane Adige and I guess I have been sticking to the theme as much as possible!! Of course, lot of other beautiful blogs and web sites have come up with Kannada cuisine in the past year and I am happy to say that Kannada cuisine is now getting all the well deserved attention!!! :)

A big THANKS to all my readers and fellow bloggers who have made Mane Adige such a sweet success!!! All you beautiful people out there have made Mane Adige possible.... without whom, I would have given up a long time ago!! It feels wonderful to receive notes of appreciation from my readers every now and then... recipe requests... supportive comments from readers and fellow bloggers... I can't thank you guys enough!!! Mane Adige has had about 41,000 visitors and 92,000 page views till date, with an average of 275 visitors per day... Though not a huge number, I am happy that I could reach out to those many of you... and that, those many of you have actually appreciated Mane Adige in some way or the other!! Hoping to receive the same amount of support, appreciation and love from all of you in the days-months-years to come.... Cheers!!!

Coming to the Arusuvai surprise ingredient...... The surprise ingredient has finally arrived!!! I had initially decided not to be a part of the Arusuvai chain, because of my current busy schedule... But I finally gave in to the temptation!! Its too hard to resist when almost everyone in the blogging world is into it, you know!!:)

Anyway, Vanamala from My Kitchen World sent across some home-made "Chutney Pudi" as a surprise ingredient!! The aroma of the pudi was so good that I wanted to gobble it up right away!! She has also sent across a book and a chocolate bar to me as a gift!! Thanx a lot, VM.. that's really sweet of you!! :) Will post later about how I put the chutney pudi to use...

Meanwhile, if there's anyone who lives in the US and is interested in receiving the Arusuvai surprise ingredient from me, please leave a comment on this post or mail me at mane.adige@gmail.com

That's all for now... take care and happy cooking!!!

What a nice thought to include a classic mystery with the "mystery"...and who can't use a bar of candy? I've learned very quickly how nice it is to have a good chatni podi (or two or three!) on hand for a quick, filling meal with rice. With dosas and ghee it becomes a true sin... :-) Happy One Year to you and your nice blog! Cheers!
