Weekend get together | an Update on Social Media Detox | Three Lentil Dal Recipe

Today I have so much to say and much to share with you all. This post is long (with lots of photographs) when compared to my other blogposts. If you are short of time and came here only for the three lentil dal recipe, then scroll down to the end of the post. :-)

Slow Roasted Bell Pepper with Red Lentils (Bhuna Hua Simla Mirch Aur Masoor Dal) Recipe

I don't think I can ever get bored of eating dal. Probably because it is so easy to make and doesn't need much planning or thought especially on a busy weeknight. And also because an egg omelette and a simple tomato dal were the first few recipes I tried under my mother's watchful eye. She is a terrific cook and all I wanted to do is cook like her. Though my first dal didn't turn out to be a spectacular one with the tempering almost burnt, I still fondly remember the night and its memories. Today's recipe (adapted from my favorite book - 660 Curries by Raghavan Iyer) - Slow Roasted Bell Pepper with Red Lentils is a combination of flavors I never cooked before - bell pepper with red lentils. Finger licking good!

5 things to do with.... Brown Rice

One of my favorite chefs is Jamie Oliver and the title of this post is a blatantly inspired by his 5 things to do with.. series. I saw a video on Eggs couple of weeks ago and one on Tomatoes couple of days ago. After watching them, I had this sudden urge to dive into my archives and put together a list of my favorite recipes. Today it is all about Brown Rice.
