I am pleased and humbled to host My Legume Love Affair #89, for the month of November 2015. MLLA is an ongoing, monthly event since 2008 in which, bloggers from any country or cuisine can take part in this event by presenting their vegetarian legume recipes. This event was created and started by Susan of The well seasoned cook in 2008, and has been hosted by Lisa of Lisa's kitchen since February 2013.

This is the first time I am hosting this prestigious event/ blog party since I have started blogging in the month of May 2014. Though from the last few months I am sending my recipes as my blog post entry to many blog hop parties, I feel it is now the time for me to get the experience of hosting an event. I am really obliged and would like to give thanks to Lisa from Lisa's kitchen, who gave me this chance and believed in me to host this event.

My legume love affair started a long time ago, being born in a vegetarian family, and later growing up in a family where lentils were made every single day. My mother was a total vegetarian, who never tasted any meat, seafood or even egg in her life. Lentils play a vital role in a vegetarian's diet because they are the main source of protein. We vegetarians consume some or the other type of legumes almost every day in our diet to get the constant supply of protein and their nutrients in our diet.

In Indian cuisine, lentils are used in many ways e. g. all lentil curries (Stew) are a regular thing, with many lentils made as a dry side dish/salads. Many traditional sweet items and snacks are also made with lentils or their flours- in which chickpeas flour is the most common one.

Legumes include all types of lentils, pulses, fresh or dried beans, peanuts etc, the list is endless. You can even include chick peas flour or any other lentil flour too, all you need to do is to present your legume-centric dish on this event page.
