Hara Bhara Balls(Spicy spinach balls)~Blog hop Wed 10th October 2012

This is my entry for Blog Hop Wednesday started by Radhika of Tickling Palates. Its a beautiful concept where not only do you get to make new  blogger friends, cook from their blogs but in return they visit your blog and try out your recipes too.

If you are interested in  joining Blog Hop Wednesday here is how it works:

"The plot behind this attempt is to form 2 groups and make pairs with a blogger who will be your partner for that particular month. This happens every 2nd wednesday of the month. You will then go through your partner’s blog, select, choose, cook, click and post the recipe in your blog on Wednesday and vice versa. The following month you will have a new partner. This way not only you tend to your blog at intervals but also learn some new recipes along the way and get to know a lot of bloggers and make friends."

This month my blog hop partner is Priya Srinivasan of enveetukitchen .She has a nice variety of recipes and looking through them it was hard to decide which to make. I finally chose the Hara Bhara Balls (Spinach vegetable balls)
