Blogging Marathon# 33: Week 2/ Day 3

Theme: Favorite Celebrity Chef Recipes

Dish: Tarla Dalal’s Quick Tawa Rice

One of my favorite Indian Chef is Tarla Dalal. I still remember watching her show on Sony TV from 12~15 years back and noting down the recipes. I used to bug my mom to buy the ingredients from super market to try the recipes. I love the way she makes all the dishes so simple and easy to make.

So for Day 3 of BM# 33, I made this quick Tawa rice by Tarla Dalal. I used to print out recipes from Tarla Dalal.com some 6~8 years back. I neatly them put in a binder and kept it safely in the basement. While looking for recipes for this week, I looked through the binder, but couldn’t find anything to make with the ingredients I had on hand. A quick Google search landed me on this recipe and Tarla Dalal’s Youtube video. I made it right away for lunch and really liked it. This dish is going to be on our meal rotation going forward.

The dry red chili – garlic paste gives this dish so much flavor and it smells heavenly while cooking and even after cooking. My addition to this dish is a spoonful of pav bhaji masala, other than that I kept it close to the original.
