I love to cook!!! because he loves to eat ❤️!!– Haleem – Indian Manner

This is the dal chawal type of substitute for non-vegetarian because of all the light flavoring and nutritious elements cooked in one pot. Hashim loves to dig tandoori roti in a gooey mixture of lentils and meat. I definitely like roti more than its white flour constituting partner called naan. During my visit to Pakistan, I was quite fascinated by tandoors (the place where naans, roti’s and the countless types of Pakistani breads are made and sold). I have always watched the tandoor in fascination as the tandoor fellow would take a ball of dough, roll it out, slap it onto a solid cushion with a moistened surface which he would then lower into the oven to transfer the roti to the rounded wall of the oven in startlingly fast pace, the roti would cook on the heated wall swelling uneven in places with the pressure of the heat.

That Instant Dhokla

white dhokla recipe
That Instant Dhokla

If you’re Gujju then you know what I’m talking about. If you’re not!! Welcome to my another post recipe that will surely blow your mind. What is dhokla?? No need to stress yourself, it’s not at all an IIM based interview question LOL Well! Don't get confused because of its heavily melodramatic name, dhokla is just another easy-to-go dish of Gujju community like other edibles such as khandvi, handvo (recipe already shared) but not at all Khakra! All the names sound like something powerful and dangerous, but believe me the look and feel is other way round. Coming back to the topic, what is dhokla?? Let’s have a sneak peek!! Dhokla comes in different colors and shapes namely, khaman dhokla, White dhokla, sandwich dhokla and what not! Some are famed for its protein rich factor, a few because of its flamboyant garnishing style, some of its healthy added elements and some because of its instant cooking modus operandi.

Mutton Chapli Kebabs

Mutton Chapli Kebabs

I always had this fascination to plunge into Asian cultures and traditions that lead to calmness inside me. Simplicity, antiques and ordinary things have always captivated my attention from all times. Those who have traveled with me knows that I get irresponsibly happy around sheep’s and donkeys. In Karachi, I stopped the car consistently to take photos of the sheep’s and donkeys grazing herds. “Donkeys” might not make a GREAT list for everyone but they did for me.
