For this month of potluck party, I was paired with Sutapa. I was too happy because I am an dal or gravy-aholic lady. In this blogging world, we can see many bakes, many goodies or many virtual treats, but when it comes to your home-cooking, making gravies or dal for dinner becomes an wondering part of life because breakfast and lunch preparation gets over my morning itself. And for me, I simply quiz what to cook up, with my refrigerator and provisions shelf wide open :D :D This potluck party, very clearly compensated my thought :P
Bhaja moong dal, an bengali dal is an rich and exotic dal. 'Bhaja' means 'fry' and so moong dal was fried with ghee before pressure cooking and tempered with spices and coconut. When I prepared, I can notice a pleasent aroma and taste, unlike other dal preparations. So, thanks to Sutapa for introducing such an nice dal to us, I enjoyed them thoroughly with roti.
