Hubby’s Dal Makhani
In our ten years of marriage, Arun and I have spent numerous hours in the kitchen trying new dishes and experimenting with various ingredients. Dal Makhani is one of his specialties. It is one of those dishes I crave for on a lazy weekend and though you might think I am biased, this is hands down the tastiest Dal makhani ever.
Here’s the first guest post from my hubby dearest.
“I’m a software guy and writing technical documents is a part of my day job. When Akila asked me if I can write a guest post for her food blog www.morphyandme.com, it felt exactly like the change I wanted from my routine. Something totally new, totally different, something I have never done before. It didn’t take more than a nanosecond to accept the offer 🙂
I’m new to food blogging but not to cooking. I started with maggi during school days but the real initiation happened during college when I started making dal, chawal, sabzi, rotis (not exactly round and size zero but palatable). Feeding hot suji ka halwa to hostel mates in the middle of the night after a session of Half Life or Age of Empire was my way of spreading happiness and caring.
Being born and brought up in Delhi my taste buds were exposed to umpteen delicacies but one which remained an enigma when it comes to replicating the taste and feeling at home was Dal Makhani. I tried recipes from various authors and sources which came out ok but never like THIS IS IT. And then one day the eureka moment happened.
I know there will be better recipes than the one I’m going to share but the USP of mine is that it is high on ROI as calculated by – taste per unit of effort/time invested.”
