Chana Masala (on toast)

There are plenty of recipes available on internet for a perfect chana masala- dry or in a curry. All of them (or 99% of them) suggest to serve it with a rice, any kind of Indian bread or even potatoes. I’ve come up with a slightly different, new way of serving it.

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 🙂 There are white, yellow, red, green, brown and even blue lentils (grown in France and Italy)!

In India, Khichdi is the most common dish served to babies and toddlers. It’s very simple, easy to prepare and healthy- perfect for a busy mum 🙂
