Malai Kofta (Potato croquettes in gravy)

A rich creamy dish for a special day, well that is what i had in mind when i used to make it for my friends a decade or more back!  Sweet days where we could accommodate shopping, movies and even a hand at cooking in the middle of reading a book on micro economics. Days of extreme time management i must say ;)

You can look at Malai koftas as the distant vegetarian relatives of the Italian meatballs, eaten along with rice or naan. The croquettes or koftas can be served in red or white gravy, personally preferring the white i detail the recipe for the same.

Dal Makhani (Lentils in cream)

A perfect blanket for the cold winters, the recipe will warm your heart and envelope your soul in its smooth astounding flavors!

A stew of sorts, traditionally this dal requires cooking on low flame /charcoals for hours to lend the creamy flavor. But today, along with cooking it low and slow in our modern kitchens , dollops of cream and butter also lend to its buttery texture.

Marinara sauce

The holiday season is finally here!  Bright Christmas lights, cold wintry nights, cuppa hot chocolate, cinnamony delights.. ah the festivities are truly musical. Have been thinking to make something which personifies the season in some aspect and the color, the vivid color red got me cooking this simple yet down-home-comforting recipe. 

So let's get cooking!

Dahi bhalle

A picture is more than a thousand words ! i wish i could play silent on this post and let u on your own for a luxurious, comforting, uplifting and an almost ruminating experience through my galleria of dahi bhalle photographs! But only if my wishes had wings and you could read my recipe in invisible ink was the impossible possible ;) 

Dahi bhalle or Dahi bade as they are called, are savory lentil dumplings in yogurt and tamarind sauce. Traditionally served as a chaat item in India , bhalle gives grandeur as a great side dish to any Indian dinner or lunch party. 

Lets hit the right chords to some great bhalle(s) in the making then.
