My Homecooked Dhall Curry

DHALL FOR ONCE...  Bought a packet of Australian Dhall at Jaya Grocer, I wonder whether it is the same with our local dhall?  Never cook this before and there is always a first time in everything.  So I bought a packet and cooked half of it, putting in potatoes, tomatoes, carrots and diced breast meat.

After trying out this dish, I feel it is best to soak the dhall longer and then blend it before before cooking.  As I did not blend it, the dhall were still noticeable, I prefer them to be mashed up, thick gravy like those I eat in roti canai shops. LOL... Well, I guess I will have to do that the second time round.  

I am not a spicy person but I ended up putting in too much curry powder and dry chillies... I quickly scooped up the dried chillies and googled how to make it less spicy.  Mr. Google advised me to put in lime/lemon juice!  Good that I have a lemon in the fridge and I quickly added in some lemon juice to lessen the spicyness.... 
Ingredients at the start.... 
Half way through... 
Boiled for almost 45 minutes to an hour....
I forgot how long actually... hahahaa...
Stirring it on and off...
almost done.... 
Cooked.... 
Ate it with tortilla for lunch.... 
Can see the dhall?
Some prefer to eat it this way.... but I prefer it mashed....
For dinner, I had it with noodles.... 
My girl told me that I can wrap this up with Paratha 
and then bake it in the oven....
Comes out like a Giant Curry Puff, so she says...
Ok, I will try doing it the next round!

  3. Just soak overnight, don't blend - will turn mushy or if you must. just a little - can still see the dhall, whole...some of them. It looks good though, great with rice, I'm sure.

  7. There are many types of dhall because dhall is a term used in the Indian subcontinent for dried, split pulses that do not require soaking before cooking. Pulses include lentils, beans and peas. Your dhall curry looks good but a big pot. How long will you take to finish it?

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
