Shahi Paneer

My old diary is a treasure trove of recipes I jotted down way back when I was a teenager – some from television, some from mom / aunts. Whether it was then or now, my interest in cooking still lies in making something unusual; something one doesn’t make it on a daily basis. Here is one such recipe for Paneer / cottage cheese. The gravy is white and smells & tastes great!

Dal Recipe

Like my mom few of you will find this dish a bit bland…I somehow liked it when I had this at my aunt’s place…though my aunt doesn’t eat onions I have used it…Onions give a nice touch to it :))…… It tastes quite good with idiyappam …which I normally used to have with Vegetable Stew or Egg Curry…this dal recipe is a welcome variation to the combo !! and its unbelievably simple!

Chickpea Curry

Chickpeas Curry Pic: Priya Q

Successful experiment by fluke is how I would describe this recipe. I had soaked chickpea the previous night and my maid didn’t turn up the next day. I was not in a good mood with so much of unexpected work thrown at me. Least to mention the chickpea I had planned for breakfast with some steaming puttu. So instead of usual recipe I decided to go an easy route…and it turned out quite delicious :))
