My journey from Jala Bhuna Egg Masala to Spiced Egg in Tomato Broth - Project Food Blog -Ready Set Blog

Breaking News - I am in as an official contestant for Project Food Blog which is first ever interactive competition where some thousands of food bloggers who are also foodbuzz featured publishers competing.
and the first step of the contest is Ready Set Blog .
I have been thinking hard about this since the  past two hours sitting alone on the couch, with hubby and Advay sleeping this is the best time for me to write this post.

About Asan Khana my food blog which means Easy Cooking is not only my blog ,it is something with which i have grown since the past two and a half years .When i started with my blog which happened because i landed on this blog ;-) i didnt had any clue that within some years i will be able to cook properly,take good pictures,will be able to bake cakes and cookies and do so many other things which i have never done before.With this blog i have discovered myself in true sense.and now this blog has become part of me something which is inseparable.I know i am not a professional chef i am just normal human being  who is passionate about cooking,learning new recipes,sharing recipes ,blogging about it and doing so many other things which a normal foodie does.

I think i am eligible for Project Food Blog Star because I love to take challenge ,even if i dont win,i will learn so many things after all its the participation which is more important, isnt it ? I came across so many beautiful blogs when i saw the contestants profile,for few minutes i thought of backing out ,i felt my blog stands no where amongst such awesome blogs,but then i closed my eyes and thought theres no harm in taking part,and getting my blog known to other bloggers,by just taking part i will learn so much :-)

Unique thing about my blog or the things which sets it apart - its simplicity,just like me i have tried to keep my blog simple with focus on day to day recipes,which can be prepared withing few minutes,earlier this space started as a recipe journal but with time i have done some changes .my blog features my kitchen experiments ,kitchen disaster ,recipes tried from other blog,my mothers recipes and family recipes.
I am not asking you guys to become my follower,or to tweet for me,if you guys really like my blog and feel it deserves the vote  then do vote for me ,voting begins on 20th of September.And ya thanks a lotz friends this journey wouldnt have been possible without your support i know since the day i have started blogging till today thanks for reading my posts,and inspiring me to go ahead .Thanks for sharing my joy ,sorrow,my musings and so many other things,..:-)
