Neivedyam is a food blog full of innovative recipes.I wanted a traditional and ethnic name for my blog, which will represent not only food, but also the Indian culture and values in just a word and so was the name "NEIVEDYAM" born. Couldn’t find anything better. NEIVEDYAM means "Prasadam" the sacred Food offered to God. This blog has state-wise specialities and festive foods from India and International fusions too.
