Xaak Bhaaji

This is an attempt to make non-lovers of green leafy vegetables love them. Children and choosy eaters generally dislike green leafy vegetables.One of the easy ways to cook could be to add a potato sliced thin to the leaves.

First the leafy vegetables is cut thin. Oil is heated and pach phuron, garlic added to the hot oil along with onions and chillies.Thinly sliced potatoes are first fried in oil .Salt is added now.When they turn golden brown then the leaves are added.Along with leaves egg is added.The contents are stirred and cooked till the water content in the leaves is dried.Pepper may be added.

Mango Dal

A hot afternoon and tangy dal for lunch go hand in hand.Summer time ,mangoes in season and often I get to taste this delicious dal.


Arhar or toor Dal
Raw Mango diced into small pieces.
Red chilli powder or green chillies(whichever preferred)


Dal with turmeric,garlic,onions,chilli is set to boil.The mangoes can be boiled along with the dal or added along with seasoning to the dal.However I prefer the latter.

A little oil is heated in a pan.Seasoning is added along with the mangoes .The mangoes are reduced to a pulp with a spoon in the oil.And when the magoes becomes pulpy dal is added to the seasoning and boiled withthe seasoning for 3-5 minutes.Mango Dal is ready for the afternoon.
