This month in my Facebook group Recipe swap challenge I was paired with Mayuri who blogs at MayuriJikoni.com

In the challenge both participants have to cook one recipe from each others blog and post in a certain time frame.

This gives us an opportunity as bloggers to support each other and cook recipes that we always bookmark but never end up trying due to so many reasons?

Why I choose this recipe!!

As I blogger I want to try new ingredients and I have never used blueberry in my cooking. So thought to start by trying this simple recipe. Although we don’t get fresh blueberries in India I bought dried blueberries for this recipe.
