And then the fear factor episodes with scorpions/spider/frogs/cockroaches, what is wrong with them. Why do they tend to glamorize every darn ugly thing in the world? My hubby S says if you were paid some hefty sums like them, then probably you would have also gone to these shows. S ,I beg to differ and I am not ready to take these craps even if I am overpaid and also I am not going to watch them to increase their TRP’s anymore. These days I feel there is serious lack of some quality TV programme although the channels available now is many more as compared to some 5 or 10 years back.
That makes me realize -Are we loosing the interest in these reality TV programmes or watching Cable. Do you like to watch reality TV programme? What is your opinion?
Since I am late in posting, so I will share with you two recipes in one go
First one is dal Bukhara or kali dal as is commonly known in UP a northern state in India. I guess this dish started it’s origin from western province in Pakistan. Anyone out there do you know more about it then share it with us.
Cream and tomato is the most used ingredient, in fact forms the base of this dal.Tomato gives the tangy flavor and cream gives the richness that is required in this dal .This dal is very delicious just like it’s ally dal makhni (which has rajma /kidney beans also added in it).I have tried to make it restaurant –style so that we can enjoy it even in comfy of our home. I have pureed half of the cooked dal with fried masala‘s and then added the cream and butter to it. Then we kept it cooking for sometime at low which gives ample time to blend the flavors well. This made that creamy rich thick gravy that we were so looking forward to eat. I am glad at the end we were not disappointed.
