Rajma Chawal

Let us talk about dinner first. Okay so each one of us has our own idea of comfort food, right. If you ask me, there are many foods that I categorize as comfort food and my dinner is definitely one of them. If I say this the Indian way it is what we North Indians call Rajma Chawal aka Kidney beans with rice. And the cherry on the cake is the dollop of Ghee ( Clarified Indian butter). This dollop of fat is what I call Ambrosia. Even if you add just a tad bit, it takes an ordinary dish to a heavenly food with an after taste that is so so satisfying. Seriously my words cannot justify the goodness of this dish.

If I ever host a blogger meet up, this will definitely be on my menu πŸ™‚ I’ll post the recipe for this one soon!

And on the side a EVOO massaged Kale salad.

  • Dressing: EVOO+ Lemon Juice+ Salt +Pepper
  • Kale about 4 stalks massaged with the dressing.
  • colored bell peppers
  • red onion
  • grape tomatoes
  • Capers

Now onto the breakfast: I had an almost empty DCD PB jar lying around so I made good use of it and ate Oatmeal in a jar breakfast!
