Eid Contest 2013 Winner Announcement

Congratulations Anu Majida for being the Eid Contest Winner for the recipe Chicken Pillow…

Hope everyone who celebrates Eid had a wonderful time with their family and friends. We in deed had an awesome time. During Ramadan, I had hosted a contest where my readers had to submit one of their recipes and the best recipe would win. It was so amazing to get so many recipes and the contest heated up like crazy. I had received 22 recipes in total and had to pick the best among them. It was not an easy task, I had to consider so many aspects while judging the recipes. Based on creativity, uniqueness, picture, clear recipe and preparation, I picked Chicken Pillow or Kozhithalayana recipe shared by Anu Majida as the winning recipe.

Congratulations Anu Majida, here is the Prize: you will be receiving a 7 pc Prestige non-stick cooking set soon.

Thanks to all the other contestants as well, I truly appreciate your effort and for sharing your recipes with us.
