Aam Daal (Green Mango Lentil Stew)

Aam Daal is a quintessential Bengali daal (lentil stew) prepared throughout the mango season. It's mildly sour from using the green mango and utterly comforting when paired with steamed white rice. It is most commonly prepared using red lentil (masoor daal) but you can use your choice of daal too.

Mung Bean and Kale Daal

Packed with nutrition, this Mung Bean and Kale Daal is such a tasty wholesome meal. It can be served in two ways. You could serve it with a good doze of ghee and spice sizzle on top and it would pair beautifully with rice. You could also swirl a little bit of cream and enjoy it as soup with the bread of your choice. I have tried both the versions of Mung Bean and Kale Daal. They both taste equally comforting and so good!

Daal Poori/ Deep fried Indian bread stuffed with Lentils — Guest Post for Radhika @ Food for 7 Stages of Life

We Indians are used to eating a lot of flat breads. In most of the Indian kitchens, it's prepared every day and paired with some side dish or lentil soup. Having said that, if you are from eastern India, we are more used to eating rice in our daily meal. It's only after my marriage that I started to cook and eat paratha or roti on a regular basis. One of the most common flat bread preparation is stuffed paratha, which I am still struggling with, but stuffed poori with lentil is something I managed to learn faster.

Bharwa Shimla Mirch (Potato Stuffed Bell Pepper)

Bell Pepper is one of those vegetables that I buy very rarely. On exceptional occasions, it gets added in my grocery list and often plays a side role in creating a complete dish. Bharwa Shimla Mirch (Potato Stuffed Bell Pepper) is the only dish I know where bell pepper is the hero. It takes on a full role. Bharwa Shimla Mirch can be served as an appetizer or as a side dish with the main course.
