“Dal Bukhara” ( दाल बुखारा ) is a velvety smooth slow cooked black lentil simmered in a tomato based gravy. The world famous Bukhara restaurant of ITC Maurya in Delhi serves the best dal Bukhara. Their Dal Bukhara is just ultimate. I had always fancied trying this at ITC Bukhara (from where this dal originated) ever since I learnt about this dal and I got a chance to try this dal in my recent trip to india.

Cucumber Raita (खीरे का रायता) is a great cooling dish which goes with any fiery dish, or sometimes just acts as one of many ways to make plain yogurt exciting.

Choose what you call it, if in India, you will call it Dry Potato Sabzi / Curry, or Sookhi Aloo Sabzi (सुखी आलू की सब्ज़ी), or if you in western country, its more commonly known as Bombay Aloo or Potato, it is one of the simplest curry made of potatoes with spices.

Baby corn is one such thing that can gel well with any cuisine, be it Indian, Chinese or anything from West. Baby corn has host of benefits, like it is low in calories, and has less carb when compared with normal corn. Baby corn has large fibre contents, which is good for lowering risk of heart diseases and type 2 diabetes. A 1/2-cup serving offers 4 percent of the daily value for vitamin A and iron, and 2 percent of the daily value for vitamin C. Sharing this Baby Corn Masala, a creamy gravy based recipe, which I would say is derived from my experiment with North Indian Cuisine.
