Gujarati Dal

                                                                    I have been wanting to post this recipe in a long time.Though it is very easy to make it took me so long to post it.It is simple Tur dal cooked in Gujarati style.They call it "khatta meeta" dal because it is a little sweet and spicy.It comes in really handy when you run out of ideas or vegetables!!!!Plain basmati rice with this dal with a dash of Ghee tastes heavenly!!!!

Thani Kootu

                                                               Thani Kootu is a very traditional and old recipe.This is usually made at home during sumangali poojai."Thani" means "alone" in Tamil, this kootu is made up of gravy without any vegetable and dal that is why it is called "Thani kootu".During this pooja they make five vegetables with the same gravy.Vegetables like Snake guard,cluster beans,chow chow,brinjal, are boiled and combined with the gravy.It is made during Pongal(sankaranthi)festival too.
