  12. Mona,
    I just found your blog and absolutely love it. My aunt is from Hyderabad and makes the most delicious food ever. I’ve been searching for a while for authentic Hyderabadi recipes.
    For the “Hyderabadi Ramadan Food Festival 2010”, could you please post the authentic Hyderabadi recipe for Seviyan ka zarda – the rich halwa made with vermicelli & nuts. I found this recipe here, but it’s in Urdu which I can’t read unfortunately.
    I’ll be visiting frequently to try out your Hyderabadi recipes.

    Farida, jazakallahu khairun for the appreciation. Your request is duly noted.

  13. Inshallah will send some I have two events on my site check it out

    I can’t wait to participate insha’allah! I just hope I get around to making something authentically Hyderabadi…as my desi dishes are usually my own twists on my moms more authentic recipes! 🙂 But I’ll try and definitely send it to you insha’allah. Can’t wait for Ramadan!

    WaAlaiKumAsSalaam Reshmi Ahmed, you can send me typical Hyderabadi dishes that are made during the month of Ramadan at Iftaar and Seher for the event.
