Paneer Tikka

Today I was feeling a bit down, was very tired and still had bunch of stuff to do. So I decided to forget all that and make my favorite, Paneer Tikka. And again, this dish didn’t fail me! With that, I though curd rice would fit nicely (probably you cannot serve these two together, if asked from locals, but I have learned not to ask if I don’t want to…

After eating huge stack of dosas, I felt I need something little lighter like fruits. Also, I had two packets of curd in fridge, that needed to be used. So, simple solution: Lassi.   I payed a visit to my favorite place for fruits: a street near my place, which is usually filled with fruit vendors.

Dosas

I had to decide what to do with my rest of maybe idli batter (see previous post). As same batter can also be used for dosas, I wanted to give them a try. But dosas I couldn’t, no I wouldn’t, eat without coconut chutney. But with that came two problems: I don’t have any kind of food processor or blender, and another one was trickier.

Tomato Chutney

I thought I would write about my experiment with cooking Dal Makhani, but as it was a bit failure and disappointment, I’ll keep it only short. I googled the recipe, and found this: http://www.indianfoodforever.com/daal/daal-makhani.html . I had a quick look, made a shopping list and started cooking.
