Adi's Birthday Cake

I am back today with Adi’s B’day cake and some other pictures of the party ('Jai' is my son's First name) . After coming to US we celebrate Adi’s b’day for three days. First day is on the weekend where we can avail all the friends for cutting the cake and celebrating. The second date is according to the Hindu calendar. He was born on a Telugu New year day called the Ugadi, where the date keeps changing every year and the third date is the actual English calendar date, the 21st. So he gets to freak out the whole week. He officially cut the cake on 17th this year. The Big Event!!

Adi loves the movie Chicken Little and the movie has to be played at least once a day at home (I mean almost every day). So we thought that there can be nothing better than getting a cake for him with the Chicken Little concept.

The following are some of the dishes served at the party.

Dahi wada

samosas n pakodis

Grilled vegetables

chutneys n salad
Veg Biriyani

Tadka Dal
Okra Fry
Kadai Paneer
Gobi Ki Subzi

Palak Ki Subzi

Mixed Pickle


Mixed veg salad yogurt

Gajar ka halwa n Gulab Jamun

Rasmalai n Kheer

I am glad that I could share all these pics with you guys. Phew!! but got exhausted loading em all!!

Will be right back after Ugadi. Wish You all a Happy Telugu, Kannada and Marathi New Year!!
