Round-up and Results of Just "4" Fun Event

I am happy to present you all the Round up and Results of Just 4 Fun event. The only rule of the event was to submit any recipe with only 4 ingredients. Salt, Water / Ice cubes were given as bonus ingredients. When I announced the event, I thought I might get many entries which are made frequently at home like our roti, poriyal, raita etc. But to my surprise I got so many innovative and interesting recipes...yes, with just 4 ingredients :) . I have accepted a few entries with 1 or 2 more ingredients than what the rule says and also rejected a few which had too many ingredients...I am sorry about that as it might go totally against the rule of my event. So I got a total of 119 valid entries. I would like to thank each one of you who participated and gave me support for this event :)

Like my previous event Cook It Healthy: Proteinicious, I thought of classifying all the entries this time as well for your easy reference. So I have classified the entries as  Sweets/Desserts/Chocolate Delights, Jams/Spreads/Preserves, Drinks, Snacks, Breakfast/Indian Breads, Curry/Sidedish  and Eggs/Meat/Sea Food. Also, I have included some awards just like my last event round-up so as to appreciate your efforts. The award categories are Winner, Most Innovative, Top Contributor, Good Food's Favourite, Best Presentation and Participation Award for all. If I have missed any of your recipes or linked any entry wrong, please do correct me.

So ready for a visual treat of easy and less ingredients dishes ????? Want to know the winners ?????

What are you waiting for.....enjoy the roundup and scroll down for the results :D
