Dal Makhni

Whenever we go out to eat or order in Indian food the first choice my husband always make is Dal Makhni, I sometimes get really irritated by his habit but he cant help he is totally in love with it after all it is a Dal like no other, Creamy texture , Full of aroma and every bite very very satisfying!

Given his eternal love affair with Dal makhni, we have sampled dal makhni of all the countries and cities we have been to and can give a real good guidance to anyone where NOT to eat it!

Fresh Handmade Fettuccine (Hand rolled)

I love food that is fresh and simple , there is something truly magical in every bite of handmade pasta!

While watching Masterchef one day the idea struck to me to try making pasta at home, though the idea of making pasta at home that too hand rolled (Since I do not have pasta maker at home) pasta is quite intimidating as it involves lot of intricacies.
