Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “Fifth of May”) is a regional holiday in some parts of Mexico. The holiday celebrates the victory of Mexican army over the French forces in the Battle of Peubla on May 5th, 1862.

I made a mexican dinner to celebrate it at home. Here’s my plate with Sweet Corn & Pepper quesadillas, Rice & beans, Guaca-salsa & a dollop of sour cream.

  2. I was wondering what Cinco De Mayo meant, good to know! :)Mexican platter looks fabulous, drooling here!!!Have a wonderful trip to Sweden, will see you in June again. I am off too until June 3rd and then again on June 24th we are flying to Hawaii. Last long holiday with Trisha before college starts.

  3. Gosh, what a gorgeous feast that is! Love those plump quesadillas, Pavani, and the rice looks delicious too.

  4. Hi Pavani, about your question– I get durum atta from the Indian grocery. Whole Foods stocks it sometimes but of course it’s marked up like crazy. I definitely advise using it because it is perfect for Indian breads. The regular whole-wheat flour, in my experience, tends to make the chapatis/parathas too dense and hard. Hope that helps 🙂

  5. hi pavani first time here..lovely blog… mexican platter to see it . and u have wonderful rice varieties too.. WIll keep visiting regularly
