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!

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.
