(salam)

I could add one, but it's cheating. I get the dal spice box from the store, scoop out two flat spoons of the spice mix, and slap it into frying onions, garlic, tomatoes, green chili peppers, and potatoes - I use more tomatoes than reccommended, try to get the potatoes a bit soft so get a thicker sauce, and use only two peppers. I prefer to remove the peppers before the dal is finished. I boil up the dal on the side - the softer the better - and add everything from the frypan once it's all finished. Regarding tomatoes, not only do I put in more than the usual, I also partition them: some I put in right away to incorporate the flavour into the mix and get those curled tomatoe skins, then sometimes I toss some in halfway through tyhe cooking, and then I throw some larger chunks toward the end to get juicy tomato chunks in the actual dal. If, while the frypan mix is wroking, two scoops of spice doesn't seem enough, I sprinkle in more until it smells just right.

My husband made dal on his own - no spice box - and used more potatoes than I. He was successful in softenint the dal, and I don't know what spices he added, but it has been sooooo delicious! And he's Iraqi!

Here's one:

Dumpling "Eggdrop" Dal Chaat

That's Chaat not chat. Chaat is like a tangy, spicy saucy dipping, dunking stuff. It's real good and taste yummy. It's a mixture of a Muslim Chinese recipe with a touch of basel and black beans. And what makes it desi is the tangy and spicy masala.

Wa Salaam,

Dhulfiqar

Friend: No, those were potatoes.

Dhufiqar: Do you havea recipe for the spicy green yoghurt?

Peer: It sounds so delicious that I am drooling. Please do post it inshallah.

Saahir: I'm in transition. If my stomach doesn't protest, I am happy to eat it inshallah. But true that I don't do meat.

Ok, there are plenty of recipes for palak paneer, but I just got this one off sme website:

Palak Paneer

Ingredients

3 bunches of spinach

1 Onion (chopped finely)

1 tbsp Ginger-Garlic paste

10 Green Chillies

1 cup Milk

2 tbsp Cream

1 tbsp Garam Masala Powder (Shaan's garam masala is easily available)

1 tbsp Kasuri Methi (dry fenugreek leaves)

500 gms of diced cheese

2 big Tomatoes (chopped finely)

Method

Clean and wash palak nicely. Chop palak.

Boil palak and chopped green chillies for 10 mins. Cool and grind to a fine paste. Roast Kasuri methi on a tava for half a min (see that you don't burn it) and powder it by rubbing it between your palms.

In a kadai fry onion till brown. Add ginger-garlic paste and fry for sometime.

Add chopped tomatoes and fry till oil shows on top. Add palak paste and Kasuri methi and fry. Add milk. Add garam masala powder and 2 tbsp cream and paneer diced. Add salt. Cook for 5 mins.

Before serving add 1 tbsp of butter (optional).

Hey bro Peer are you talking about 'chatni' here?

Cause it seems like it. My family doesn't eat rice without chatni. My dad is so addicted to it, that sometime he drink glasses full of chatni....

If there is no chatni, we will stay hungry but won't eat sadah rice...

Peer, thank you so much! You don't even know the half of it how much I have missed that stuff? Are you sure about the garlic? Hasnain, is it actually called rayta wen it has the yoghurt? Are rayta and chatni the same thing?

Fatimah, sis, I wonder if I could put in some large mushrooms instead?

Speaking of which, does anyone have good mushroom recipes? Or recipes where mushroom would replace the meat nicely enough? Sometimes shrooms are so addictive mashallah. They're healthy, too - they can ward off radiation sickness. Remember that for ziyarat to Karbala an Najaf.

Yes, atleast thats how my mum makes it..

Garlic is good, healthy, tastes great!! You just need to brush your teeth properly, and make sure you have it as dinner, not lunch :D

(salam)

Raita reminds me of Baingan(eggplant) ka raita....my favourite raita actually....yum yum.

Anyways,I got this new recipe from an aunty Eggplant ke.

It really turns out nice...not much masala or oil.

So here it is and you should try it out.

You need-

Baingan's (ofcourse :P )

Ginger-garlic paste.

Chopped onion.

Salt to taste (as they say in those recipe books B) )

I have not written the quantity because that depends on how much you are making...go by your gut feeling and Inshallah,it will be okay. :D

Steam the baingan's in a pressure cooker and then mash them.

Put oil in a frying pan (I put very little coz my mum is very anti-oil..hehe) and then put in the chopped onion,fry till golden brown,then dunk in the paste and keep stirring till the oil comes on top and it starts smelling good ( :blink: ).

After that put in the Baingan's and salt and Red chilli powder (optional) and let it simmer for sometime.You can also put in a paste of raw mangoes.It can be substitued with curd or you can put it both :!!!: ..it gives a nice soury flavour to the whole thing.After that you need to leave it for sometime and then Voila!!!.........its ready to eat B)

By the way,who is good in baking stuff here....I love baking. :wub:
