gur wale chaawal

gur wale chaawal

Zarda was something that came into our home from a neighbor's house. In our home, gur wale chaawal are king, and whenever a batch of fresh gur came from the village, we knew what it meant. I shamefully admit I haven't made them as often as I'd like to, but whenever I do, I'm a child again, sitting on the couch with my family, watching my dad dollop some homemade yogurt onto a pile or gur wale chaawal while I pick out the kishmish and coconut slices in my plate. It's a beautiful thing isn't it? Food. It not only nourishes you, but it holds such strong memories that can instantly teleport you to the past...

Malai Boti

Malai Boti

Can I tell you a secret? I like Malai Boti better than Tikka! It felt so good to say it aloud 🙂 I feel like tikka has been done to death, not that I don't love it. I just have something against tikka masala. Like please leave the bbq alone, no need to add a gravy to it. But Malai Boti is just so fresh. Maybe it's the coriander that gives it it's green color, or the cream that cools down the whole dish, whatever it is, I love it...
