Quick Dal Recipes, Quick Kadhi Recipes
‘Quick’ is today’s mantra. The easier and faster you can prepare a dish, higher are the chances of preparing it frequently. Elaborate dishes hold a special place in our cuisine, but in our busy lifestyle, they are reserved for special days. On a daily basis, we are always on the lookout for quick and easy dishes, spanning all courses of the meal.
Quick Kadhis and Quick Dals are part and parcel of a homely meal – and the best part is that everyday kadhis and dals can be made in a jiffy, so you can prepare them any day. They are enjoyed with rice, or sometimes with puri. Dals vary from region to region – from the Gujarati Dal to the South Indian Sambhar and Rasam, from the Punjabi Dal Makhani to the Rajasthani Pakoda Kadhi. This section introduces you to the many tasty kadhis and dals that can be made quickly, from traditional ones like the Dapka Kadhi and the Maharashtrian classic Methiche Varan, to the Peanut Kadhi that can be had with Rajgira Paneer Paratha on fasting days, and the innovative Tamatar ki Kadhi.
