BM# 74: Week 3/ Day 1
Theme: Thalis/ Spreads
Dish: Vegetarian North Indian Thali – Dal Makhani
My theme for this week’s Blogging Marathon is ‘Thalis/ Spreads‘. I usually stay away from this theme because cooking a whole spread is a tedious and time-consuming thing and even if I did make the whole spread, I would be eating the same dishes for a week. So I first made sure that my husband was not traveling during the time I planned to make my thalis and then signed up. First I have is a simple Vegetarian North Indian thali that I made when one of my husband’s colleague visited us. I made the following:
- Dal Makhani (recipe follows)
- Sukhi Aloo Gobhi Subzi
- Jeera & Peas Rice
- Fruit CustardThis recipe for dal makhani comes from very talented Poonam Mongia. She posted the recipe on one of the FB groups and I noted it down right away. I have made it numerous times already but haven’t had a chance to take pictures and post it here.
This restaurant style dal makhani is creamy, flavorful and absolutely delicious. I was pleasantly surprised when my MIL asked for the recipe and wrote it down in her little notebook 🙂 So if you are looking for a good dal makhani recipe, don’t look any further — this is the one for you. Thank you Poonam for this awesome recipe.
