Lasooni Dal Palak (Garlic flavoured lentil and spinach soup) -


No well-balanced Indian meal is complete without the protein rich lentil dish or dal. Simple tadka dal features most during busy weekdays where a cooked dal is tempered with spices, but combining vegetables with lentils/beans can make any dish a powerhouse of nutrition. Like this bowl of Lassoni Dal Palak is going be one hearty and healthy bowl of goodness that will put a smile on everyone's face when you all sit down for a meal. This recipe of Lasooni Dal Palak or garlicy lentil soup with spinach is one of the best tasting dal recipes ever. The spices used are minimal, making it a nutrition and flavour packed comfort food and that for me is the next best thing to a mother’s hug!

The festive thali that made us snooze all through the Sunday afternoon… What is festival without some delicious food that reminds us of home and connects us to our roots?! Today is Holi, a Hindu festival of colours and love which marks the beginning of spring. Although in South India it is not celebrated as fervently as in Northern parts of India, we Indians never miss a chance to indulge in some good food whenever such opportunities arise! :) So here is what I cooked today; nothing fancy thali, but something that we all love.

Fire Indian Dinner 2010-11-08

A stupendous meal but then again, so was this!

The only dish tempting us at Tamarind was lasooni pasliyan: grilled lamb cutlets marinated with garlic, chili, lime and black cumin seeds, served with salad. The lamb was tasty and properly spicy, but salad? Some random lettuce leaves. Two stars for the lamb.

Lasooni Methi is fenugreek leaves cooked and spiced similarly to saag, etc but with oodles of garlic. This mango salsa had sweet red pepper in it besides the carrots in escabeche I always put in.
