Simple Dal

Dal (Daal), according to me, is the most common, traditional and famous Indian dish (next to rice and rotis/chapatis). Dal is a term used for dried, split legumes/pulses ( such as lentils, beans and peas). However, in Indian cuisine it refers mostly to lentils and any dish made from these.
There are many types of lentils. You can make the whole lentil rainbow, because there are so many different colours of lentils ๐Ÿ™‚ There are white, yellow, red, green, brown and even blue lentils (grown in France and Italy)!

Are you an expat or an immigrant?

Expats are North Americans, Europeans and Australians, while Asians, Middle Easterns, Africans and South Americans are mostly considered as immigrants. A highly educated PhD academic from India will be a highly qualified immigrant in Europe whereas a German worker (bartender) or a British retired person in Thailand will be always regarded as expats.
Do you agree with it?

I’M SO SCARED THAT …

I’ve just dropped my mum off at the airport. It looked like a casual drop off. I do it quite often in the year. Going to airport and saying bye to my mum is like a monthly trip to Smyths (toy shop)- nothing really special. Luckily, my mum visits us few times a year, plus sometimes my dad joins her. Besides that, my mum-in-law flies whenever she can. Overall, welcomes and goodbyes at the airport aren’t extraordinary or deeply emotional for us. I’m really happy we feel like that because it means our goodbye is never for long ๐Ÿ™‚ However, something has happened today…
