Mini Breakfast Thali | South Indian Mini Tiffen Recipes ~ A Virtual Birthday Treat for Manjula Bharath

Today is another day for a Virtual Treat. We a bunch of blogger friends are up for a virtual birthday bash to one of our dearest and sweetest friend who is full of smiles, laughter and happiness. She is such a unique friend that anyone can have, that much friendly, caring and someone whom you will have a good laugh with. Her down to earth nature, fun filled talk, caring nature and her simplicity have always stunned me. She is a great cook too and can make recipes withing minutes, her love of sweets are endless, you must check out her space to see so many innovative recipes. Its none other than our dear +Manjula Bharath who blogs at Desi Fiesta. Its been couple of months since we became friends and I still get this feeling that we have been friends for a longggg time. Manju is such a fun person to be around with, we both are born and brought up in the same city and instantly we had this connection. You will be surprised that she is a Rajastani who can speak Tamil so so well. I am still amazed with her knowledge of my mother tongue and of course those crazy typologies that she makes ;-). She is a very beautiful mom and wife, I always pull her leg for her slim and trim figure :p which she never really accepts, but who cares ;-) So for Manju's birthday we planned to do a virtual thali treat of different course basically south Indian since Manju loves food from South India. I have made a mini tiffen thali for her hope you love this simple platter Manju

Happy Birthday Manju dear have one wonderful birthday as wonderful as you. Wishing you a year filled with all the choicest blessings from above.
