Color Mania - A Quick Look

color mania

Color Mania - this concept was not a preplanned one. It all just happened on a day when Purple cabbage came home :) It invoked my love for colors and food.

For me its not enough if the food is yummy, but it has to be attractive too. Dull looking food never makes me drool. Mom used to make my food look attractive ever since I was a toddler because I fuss for food. Decorating my plate and then getting self impressed with it before consuming it is my hobby ;)

Once color mania concept came to shape, I had to do a lot of research on what to make and how to make it. Most of the colors were breezy to make and was instantly available, but few were real mind boggling ones.

And if you had noticed, the ten colored food fall under different categories and genres of food. There are no repetition of dishes. I was keen on presenting different food in different colors.

Since it was all about colors, I enjoyed putting together some facts about the color in my posts as well. :) Oops, never had a clue that there were so much about it :)

I should thank my friends and my family for helping me to figure out lot of things and plan up with the recipes. Thanks all :)

1# Purple Cabbage Rice - Incorporated ground cabbage extract along with rice to bring in the rich purple shade to the rice. It was not just colorful, but was extremely tasty too. :)

2# Mango Sorbet & Pops- Yellow yellow yummy fellow :) Mango being the seasonal treat was used for making simple fruit sorbet and pops that the summer demands. :)
