Colors Of Taste - Powders

It is with pleasure and anticipation that I introduce a new theme based event that I am calling Colors Of Taste - Powders.

pow·der (poudr)
A substance consisting of ground, pulverized, or otherwise finely dispersed solid particles.

I have always been intrigued with the powdery concoctions of the culinary world, the profusion of taste and aromas that that comes out a simple blend of spices and ingredients. They evoke a sense of mysticism. That secret ingredient made our grandmother's dish famous far and wide...
This event honors all those magical powders - masalas, Podi, Marinade mixes, spice rubs, good on their own powders like the rice flour, All purpose Flour etc.,from the simple to the complicated...each one unique. Any powdered ingredient in the kitchen is a worthy to stand on it's own in this event.
This event would be too wide without streamlining the topic, and for that I thought we could start with themes ranging from regions, specific types of powders, dishes made from specific powder mixes etc . I am still working on the details....but that should not stop us from beginning on this wonderful journey of discovering the colorful world of Powdered Love. Suggestions and comments are welcome.

The rules are simple
This is a once a month event. So you get almost a month to submit your entry from the date of announcement of the theme of the month, which would be in last week of the month. Please feel free to use the Event Logo in your post for the event.

For instance, s silk ballet shoe just isn't suitable for wet weather and leather
shoe are not appropriate for hot summer weather.
It was the primary Christian Louboutin boutique that acqauired instant fame.
Worrying concerning the pain and pinch of high heel shoes makes the flat wedding shoe a fantastic alternative.
