WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: DINNERTIME

Dinner times are the most happening and fun times in my house, the family is seated at the dinning table and this mom dishes out some fantastic menus with everyone relishing amidst jokes and laughter. Whenever I am experimenting with some recipe, it is usually made for the evening meal time, as the whole family is together.

For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge-Dinnertime , I have selected photographs  from my tour to Chennai , India in January of this year.

We reached the Marina Beach in Chennai around 5 pm or so, it is the Longest urban beach of the country, spanning 13 Km. It sure was an unforgettable experience to see this longest beach, we had to walk too much to touch the water :), a tiring experience especially when you have spent the full day sightseeing other places in and around Chennai. But the tiredness was soon forgotten when this foodie caught sight of these food stalls.

Summer is here and a plate of freshly cut Alphonso mangoes, Watermelon, Strawberries and Orange is always welcomed and is the most sought after one. Alphonso mangoes from India are the yummiest, and we are fortunate they are available in the markets here too.

These were few of the food pictures that I enjoyed clicking and am happy to share with you all. Though I did not allow myself to eat the fried fish sold at the beach, I did make those yummy prawns that were marinated with the special South Indian chili that imparts the most amazing red color.

If you would be interested to check out some of my sea food recipes, you will find them in the archives. Enjoy your dinnertime with family and friends and make great memories :).

Ashu.

      1. Is this in Chennai?
        The only thing after years of cooking I have realized back in India they over cook the fish. I guess its a different style, nothing wrong with that….

      2. Yeah the pictures are from the Marina Beach in Chennai. Home cooking, restaurant cooking and street food cooking is definitely very different, but each is unique in its own way. In the same way the tastes of individuals too differs, right.
