Thank you

I have a bit of news to share with you.

Before I get into details, let me thank you, my readers, for making this happen. Honestly, it is  your continual visits and cheerful comments that keeps me motivated. I feel truly encouraged by your response and the kindness you show me.

As many of you may know, I recently participated in the first edition of the Kerala Kitchen event. Yesterday, I was honored and delighted to find out that my Banana blossom with green gram — Vazhakoombum payarum or Chundum payarum won the top dish award. I’ve also received the top contributor award for the most number of entries. What else can I say other than a heartfelt thank you to Magpie and Ria who did an amazing job organizing the event and giving us the opportunity to contribute.

It was such a nice surprise. It has been over a month since I published my first post, and this is the first award for Plateful. I feel lucky and happy. I have received these lovely badges from the host of the event, to display on my blog. Thank you, Magpie!

I hope you take a few minutes to stop by at Magpies Recipes to see the announcement, and take a peak at the dishes of the talented contributors and winners, and of course congratulate them.

Again, thank you all for your support and encouragement!


  1. Congratulations Nashira... A well-deserved award! You definitely rocked the kerala kitchen with so many awesome dishes.

  2. Nashi........ congratulations girl, you surely deserve every bit of the applause and award. Your dishes are finger-licking good. Hopefully will get to taste one of your sumptous desserts (the apple crumble or the sevaiyan. what say? :)

  3. Sarah: It's good to know you. Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your thoughts!

  6. Ayeesha and Aipi, thanks so much for your kind words!

  7. Wow..thats awesome. Gr8 news and congratulations. You truly deserve it. I did send one of my entries but there was no response from them (Tickling Palates) so I guess am not eligible.

  8. Judy, thank you for your delightful comments. And hey don't lose hope on the deep fry entry, the deadline of the event is Feb 5, if I remember correct. Cheer up, you still have time!

  9. Have been trying to leave a comment for weeks but the page wasn't loading properly ( I think it has something to do with the fact that I have two google ids that I switch between and nothing with your blog)
    Anyways just wanted to say you totally deserve it Nashi! Congrats again and do join us this month too with your stunning entries!

  10. Hello sunshine, it's always a pleasure to hear from you! I'm sure I'll enjoy linking my dishes to the KK, again. You'll be hosting it this month right? And what's up with the roundup for Feb?


A million thank you's for stopping by, taking the time to connect, and coming back to visit again. I genuinely appreciate each of your kind thoughts, lovely words, love and support. Happy, happy to hear from you, and hope to see you again!
