The second place in the Best Photo of Snapzella Contest goes to the Veggie String Hoppers. Nowadays when artificial flavors and colors are being promoted, this particular veggie string hoppers recipe, innovatively incorporated natural pigments using “rathu ala” (Reddish potato variety), spinach and butterfly pea (Nil katarolu), and created a highly inspiring recipe and a very attractive photograph . Natural pigments included Red – Reddish potato variety (Rathu Ala) Green – Spinach Blue -Butterfly pea flowers (Nil katorolu mal).
