It was an excellent meet. Thanks to Ravi for his hospitality & taking care of everyone of the guests.
Food was excellent. Being a veggie has its advantages. Got a whole lot of veggie snacks all for ourselves. Relished the dinner menu specially Paneer & rotis.
There were 2 topics which everyone munched on one was on automobiles & second was food. RajuDatla kept us in splits with his gyaan ala Samkapasi.
Hillram's remodelled 1984 Maruti 800 was the centre of attraction. Done in orange colour it was gleaming. Really appreciate his passion.
Its just fun to be in the company of Avi, Raveendra, Kartik, Anurag, Bajajsaab, Anand, Venu saab, Mash & others. Missed Nilesh though.
Thanks team.

it was a great meet. as for me, this is my first team bhp meet since nearly 2 years and the only faces from those days were avinash (mobike008) and hillram.

The Non Veg section:

Starters:
(top to bottom) Mutton Fry, Naatukodi Chicken Fry, Fish Fry, Prawn Fry

(contd)

Non Veg Section:

Mains:

(top to bottom) Mutton Curry, Naatukodi Chicken Curry

(contd) Veg Starters:

(top to bottom) Aalu 65,
Cut Mirchi,
Masala Chana,
Masala Peanuts,
Mysore Bajji/Crispy Vegetables/wachamacallit?

(Contd) Veg Mains, Rice and Dessert

(I forgot to click pix of onion salad, rotis, steamed rice and curd)

(top to bottom)
Paneer Curry
Sambar
Biryani/Bagara Rice
Dabal-ka-meetha


BURRRRRRRRRRRRRRP.....excuse me...

Hi Andy,

The photographs just do NOT do any justice to the food at all.

The real food scored cent percent on looks and taste. Amazing is the word.

My lunch yesterday was the "sambhar", which I took back that evening, with rice and ghee.

Thanks for the lovely food once again, Ravi. Just let me know when you plan again!!!

Nice to see that short report from you Murthy. I am glad you enjoyed the company of all of us. Look forward to seeing you regularly for all future meets.

Anand, it was nice to catch up with you after so many years. And, thanks for the pictures, as bajaj saab said, it cannot do justice to the taste and I particularly liked the mutton fry and prawn fry

Great effort by NoRules !!!

Can someone summarize the Datlaism that kept everyone in splits at the Meet?

A few tips from a Foodie about Food Photography. Each and every item served has a characterstic feature of its own and it needs to be captured well to induce that feeling of Ooooooh in it. Avoid Top-Down pics of the items served. Place them on a plate and then take a pic of it, showing the characterstic features of that dish. Top-Down pics are plain flat and should be avoided. My 2 bits.

Example 1:
On the left is the top-down pic of the cake. Plain and Flat to look at, where as on the right is an angled picture of the same cake. Now, which looks more appealing? Would you love to eat the one on the left or the one on the right. Even though, they both are of the same cake, the right one stands out a lot more and would appeal one to eat it.
Hyderabad Meet Thread 2012 Meets: DINNER MEET_NOV 24TH, 2012-improvefoodstyling.jpg

Example 2:
Golden Fried Mushroom I made at home, with Cheese Oozing out of the mushrooms.

yeah...i know what u mean. Thanx for the tips. Unfortunately the food was all placed in deep containers and getting it to pose on plates would not have been easy

Ofcourse you were missed. I asked Bajaj saab and Avi several times to call you.

Bajaj saab was tracking you constantly and kept informing me that you were still at home.

eeekkkkss My mistake I meant Nikhil & not Nilesh (I suppose there is no one by that name in the group). We surely missed our dear traveloholic & his review of the food. BTW the photograph of the cake is so tempting, I could almost taste it.

Neilguy is Neelesh Mohile and he was present (we came together). But then, no issues, mixing up of names for the first few times is a perfectly acceptable norm.

Some members of Deccan Marauders had a wonderful ride yesterday. The members were :-

Mobike008
Ardy
Traveloholic
Raju Datla

We met up at Minerva Coffee Shop for a lovely breakfast which was a treat by a newbie bull (Desert Storm) owner Raju Datla and post that we embarked on a lovely ride till Gandipet.

At Gandipet, when we stopped for a quick photoshoot and were pleasantly surprised to be mobbed by a big group of +2 college students who were there on a picnic and everyone wanted to click a picture sitting on a BULL

We were more than happy to oblige them and post that we rode back to city under the envious glances of fellow road users who kept turning back and checking us out.

We took a slight detour and rode back via. the service road on ORR where we stopped for another quick photoshoot before riding back via. Gachibowli to Lumbini Park were as it happens each year during Republic Day, the vintage car and bike rally was in progress. We spent an hour checking out the beauties ( Royal Enfields, Triumphs, Nortons and some RD-350's stole the show)

Jan 26th will be remembered not just because it was a republic day but, also for the eventful and enjoyable BULL RIDE

@Traveloholic, can you please treat our other members with a few pictures from our ride yesterday?

Republic Day Ride Meet
26-01-2012

As summarized by Mobike008, we had a ball of a time thumping around the city, enjoying the Republic Day Ride Meet. I shall not write much as Pictures speak louder than words. Let the pictures do the talking.

What a Thumping Sight it was!!!

If Gabbar Singh had these instead of Horses, then the people of Ram Garh would have heard the Thump the moment they start.
