Participation in Asal Suvai Cookery Contest - Vijay TV


This was the advertisement that came on The Hindu daily three weeks back. 

A friend of mine called up and insisted on me participating in this contest and she gave me all the courage and backed me up to go for it. Ofcourse my mom again pushed me to send my entry :)

They had asked us to send a recipe of a Sambar and a traditional recipe of Tamilnadu for the qualification round. 

I sent my favorite Capsicum potato sambar and Kanchipuram Idly recipe to Vijay TV office with not much of an expectations but then I got a call very next day that said I got selected for the second round directly and I had to make those recipes that I sent for the direct judges to taste! All excited and happy!

So did I and things then moved on in the right direction :) Got all three green signals from the judges in the preliminary round and went forward for the on spot cooking round with 20 top participants.  

With a pressure time of 1 hour and limited ingredients, I cooked up a sweet - wheat banana appam and a savory - wheat beetroot mint rings. Adding to my happiness, I won the on spot cooking challenge too along with 3 others and have qualified for the all TamilNadu Finals which is going to happen this saturday :)

Hoping to do my best and see whats in store for me :)

The contest was telecasted on Sunday the 19th of may at 7PM in Vijay tv.
