Learn how to make a quick lemon dal or nimmakaya pappu (as it is called in Telugu). What I love about this simple dal is the tangy lemon juice combined with soothing dal into almost a soup like consistency. It tastes perfect as-is with loaf of crusty bread, pour over cooked rice or as a side dish for rotis. If you are looking for easy dinner ideas for one, this recipe fares very well in that category too!

Learn how to make easy fried rice with ajwain (or carom seeds), one of the quick and easy meals I tend to make during busy weekdays especially to use up leftover (white or brown) rice.

Ajwain (as it is called in Hindi) is one of the widely used spices in Indian cooking and it is recommended to use sparingly to reap its many benefits.
