Channa Madra: This was one of the most popular dishes made for the state of Himachal Pradesh. It is a yogurt based curry made with chickpeas.
Nashpati ki Subzi (Pear Curry): This is quite an unusal dish for me, since I rarely cook with fruits and making a curry with a fruit is very new to me. When I saw it on Vaishali's blog, I really wanted to try it to see how it tastes. I wasn't disappointed -- the curry is sweet, spicy and juicy.

Spicy Bhey: Lotus stems are of the new ingredients that I tried during the mega A-Z Indian states marathon and one that I really really liked. So when I saw it being made as a dry curry with spices, I knew I would be making it real soon.
