AFTER A LONG LONG TIME DAL CHAWAL WITH ADRAKI GOBHI AND KANDA TOMATO KOSHIMBIR

Dal Chawal is some thing which i used to eat almost everyday during my school days along with veggie prepared,curd,pickle,salad,..then after my school,..in college days...for five yrs,.there was no ghar ka khana,..only during my vacations when i had to go home i could eat home cooked food but in those 15days the demand on my wishlist was chat,kachodi,halwa and other delicacies which i really liked,..so my mother used to prepare two type of curries ,for father lauki,tindora,saag and for me paneer,gobhi,mushroom,..i still remember,..i never used to look at dal chawal,,sometimes i feel how stubborn i was,..nd so immature,,,nyways thnks god i hve changed and hve started eating everything,..
Back here in Singapore,felt like eating dal chawal,...after a long long time,..i prepare dal but always with chapati,..but that day i don knw why there was craving for dal chawal with some spicy sabji,..finally decided to prepare chana dal tadka wala,plain rice,adraki gobhi and kanda koshimbir
