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?

  8. Looks good lah! I must cook dhall curry again. Very convenient food because it freezes very well.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
