Mahanandi’s Food Blog List

We food bloggers, those who practice Indian cuisine have our own language of ingredients and recipe names. Sometimes finding them on the web becomes difficult, you have to wade through page after page. Indian ingredients names can be last names of some people or an acronym of a software program. Oh, you will find all sorts of weird things with that name except of course what we are looking for. Google custom search engine, evil:) Goggle?s latest offering, really can help us out with the search. We can create our own search engines and can customize by including and excluding sites.

Very useful I thought, so created one for us, Indian food bloggers. The total number of sites came to about 95 (including Bawarchi) and I’m sure I’ve missed quite a few. Compared to when I started last year (only 3), this year has seen an incredible number of creative and talented Indian food bloggers and numerous regional recipes. With this engine we can search and find easily what we are looking for. Although the focus of the search is Indian food blogs, I haven?t excluded any sites, and you can search food blogs from all around the world easily from this search engine.

If you’d like to add custom search engine (Food Blog Search - India) to your site, here is the code: Copy and paste. Just replace “[” and “]” with “< " and ">” respectively.
(Elise of Simply Recipes has created one for all of us foodbloggers worldwide and the code for it is: here.)

Along with the custom search engine, for the community, I have also created a comprehensive list of all food blog sites practicing Indian cuisine, under the name of ‘Mahanandi’s Food Blog List’. Check it out.

If I have missed any, please let me know and I will add the sites to the list. Thanks.
