MASOOR DAL TADKA | RESTAURANT STYLE DAL TADKA RECIPE

Dal-tadka
Whenever i made dal at home, though everyone say it is good, i somehow feel it is not like the one we have in restaurants. Since i am not satisfactory, i haven't posted the dal tadka recipe so far. I had a pack of Masoor dal which i bought from Delhi during our visit in March. When i was casually talking to a friend few days back over phone, i told her i have a pack of Masoor dal and wanted to make a dal tadka. She immediately gave me the recipe. She learnt that recipe of dal from her aunty and she told it will be very nice. When i made it it tasted so awesome and it was like the one which we eat in restaurants. finally i got the perfect taste and i thought i should share this with you all. This can be made with yellow moong dal too.

ALOO CHANNA CHAAT BRUSCHETTA | BRUSCHETTA CHAAT RECIPE

Bruschetta-Chaat

Aloo channa chaat is a very popular chaat recipe. Few weeks back when we went out for shopping, i saw this Baguette bread i thought i will buy this bread and  make Bruschetta. When i was thinking what topping to make for this bruschetta , this idea of Aloo channa chaat flashed my mind. Even if you don't get French baguette bread at your place, just serve this on any plain biscuits. the 50 50 biscuits will work out well. This is a best party starter recipe. Even kids when they come back from school, you can serve this as a snack. Add your touch and customise the recipe according to your taste.

KULCHA RECIPE| RESTAURANT STYLE PLAIN KULCHA RECIPE | INDIAN BREAD RECIPES

Plain-Kulcha
  Kulcha i wanted to try for a very long time. Naan or kulcha the popular Indian bread, generally we order in restaurants . This is the first time i have attempted Kulcha at home. They turned out super soft and kids had a wonderful treat with home made kulchas. Generally for Naans we add yeast but for kulcha we don't add yeast. You can stuff potato or paneer or onions to make it stuffed kulcha. I highly recommend you to try this pillow soft kulchas at home. I have tried with maida for this recipe. I have tried with whole wheat flour too, but though it turned out good, i don't say it is too soft as the maida one. How ever, you can add half of whole wheat flour and half of maida too.
