Kashmiri Dum Aloo

There are two maniacs in my home, me and my husband. Me a paneer maniac and he is a potato maniac. Besides …

Stuffed Dal Bati

I have always been fascinated with the Rajasthani cuisine. Be it a humble gatte ki sabji or the delectable Mal Puas. I love it all. Not to forget their hospitality. It truly is a pleasure and honor to be served in a Rajasthani restaurant or household. They have it in their blood. After my honeymoon in Rajasthan, I fell in absolute love with kair sangre ki sabji and dal baati. I had it everyday, be it a roadside dhaba while driving to the dunes or Taj hotel. I couldn’t just skip these two. The best however was served at the RTDC hotel at Sam Dhani (Thar Desert). Since then I wanted to make these beauties and so here is my attempt at making stuffed dal baatis. And, I must say they turned out delicious. The best part of these is that they are baked and just brushed with ghee (clarified butter) to give the authentic taste. And, believe me they tasted no less than the authentic ones.

Bread Halwa

Nand ke anand bhayo, jai kanhaiya laal ki… I wanted to make this dessert on 14th August, my naani’s b’day, as it is her recipe and i have grown up having this. Somehow, I couldn’t make it that day, but it’s never too late, naani ka budday na sahi, krishna ka budday sahi. 🙂 Here is my bread halwa, especially for naani and all my naanka pariwar. Happy Krishna Janamashtmi!
