We all love to eat food from Dhaba (road side food joint) while traveling. Nowadays you can find many fake dhabas and taste of their food is also fake, nowhere close to the authentic ones. Luckily few old and original dhabas in India still sells the best meals. After tasting those foods, you will probably think that their cooks must have some kind of magical hands. I once tasted their 'mutton curry' .... a rich, creamy, flavourful gravy and juicy, succulent meat pieces. Last weekend I recreated the same dish in my kitchen and surprisingly he said it tastes exactly like that dhaba's mutton curry 😃😌. The recipe is very simple and easy to follow. Do try it at your home and enjoy a great lunch with your family.

How many of you like the smell of 'capsicum' / green bell pepper in vegetarian dishes ?? I am. Whenever I cook, specially without onion and garlic dishes, most of the time I end up adding capsicum into it ... i know it sounds stupid but surprisingly the taste becomes more yumm ! Today's recipe is about 'paneer rezala', a vegetarian mughlai delicacy, where paneer cubes are cooked in a nut based white gravy and in that my very own addition is some fried capsicum. I made this last week for the first time and it has become one of our favourite. You can enjoy this with biriyani, pulao or some steamed rice. Do try this at your home and let me know how it turned out for you.

He bought a large packet of Tilapia fillets last week. He is a crazy fan of fish and can eat it everyday, whereas, I don't like to eat 'macher jhol' / 'mach vaja' each and every day like him. I get bored very quickly. So, this week I made these 'tandoori fish tikkas' along with some rice and simple daal. They came out delicious and also uplifted the taste of our boring lunch. I followed a very easy recipe to make these. Do try it at home and let me know how these tikkas turned out for you.

Yesterday I experienced the worst ... my camera's memory card got corrupted and I lost more than half pictures of this recipe. We tried very hard to recover those photos but no luck!! It was nobody's fault, it's just that the tiny little piece of 'card' betrayed me 😔😔😔 very harshly .. and I felt tremendously helpless towards 'technology'. Now you guys know why there is no step by step pictures in this recipe. Anyway, among all of this depression, the brightest side is the dish 'mangsher chop'. In Bengal, it is one of the popular and lip smacking snack which you can get in many fast food centers. Spicy, crumbly mutton filling inside and crispy coating outside. Here in Austin, it was pouring heavily from last 2 - 3 days and I couldn't find any better day than this to make those croquettes. You can pair them with a cup of tea or a can of beer, every-time they will taste better and better.
