Andhra Style Mint Rice/Pudhina Annam

I will always look for simple rice dishes to prepare whenever i feel bored to cook especially for our lunch on week days. And i have bookmarked some easy dishes to dish out quickly on those days. One among my bookmarked recipe is this Pudhina rice from Hari Chandana's Blend with Spices. Am an ardent fan of Andhra style dishes especially for their pickles. Whenever i cross a different and easy breezy dishes from this cuisine, i dont forget to bookmark them. I crossed this dish in Instagram when Hari chandana posted her video recipe. And the simplicity of this dish caught immediately my attention. Obviously i bookmarked it for later. I prepared this dish few days back for our Sunday meal along with a curry leaves spiced powder rice dish. Served along with some spicy chicken thighs, everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly this flavoursome rich rice dish without any fuss.

Whenever i cross some different breads, i dont forget to bookmark them immediately, one among those bookmarked bread is this Vegan seeded challah bread. I recently crossed this extremely seeds loaded challah bread at Pavani's Space. Since this bread is loaded with varieties of seeds, these challah bread caught immediately my attention. These vegan breads are just prefect to enjoy with some salted butter or jam to kick start a day with. And these breads works prefect awesome as accompaniment to serve along with a bowl of soup or make your own sandwich with.  And this bread calls for pumpkin seeds, black poppy seeds, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds. The breads are seriously very crunchy and we just enjoyed having this bread for our lunch along with a simple potato bhaji. Yes can even pair these breads even with our own Indian curries as well.

Maa Choley ki Dal/Langarwali Dal/Amritsari Dal

Langarwali dal is a delicious, protein packed dal served at the Langar in the Golden temple in Amritsar. Since this dal is served regularly in Langars or in Dhabas in Gurudwaras, this dal is called as Langarwali dal.This ultimate dal dish calls for Whole urad dal aka whole black gram and channa dal cooked with simple spice powders. Definitely a fabulous dal to give a try without any fail if you love dal based dishes in your weekly menu. This thick flavourful Maa choley ki dal is quite a different from the popular Punjabi Dal Makhni. Both Whole urad dal and channa dal are slow cooked for making this lipsmacking dal. Soaked dals cooked in a open deep pan with usual spice powders makes this delicious dal. But still for easy cooking, i used pressure cooker method which helps a lot to dish out this extremely delicious dal with less efforts.
