Instant Pot Dal

Instant Pot Dal

Dal is such an important part of my Dad's side of the family. Everyone knows how to make it, and they make it fast. So naturally, I had to come up with my own quick version of instant pot dal. When I think of Dal, I think of my paternal grandmother, who we all called Bibi Ji. Bibi Ji was the queen of the family, and she always got what she wanted. Besides her affinity for McDonald's fish fillets, she loved dal. We had it almost daily.

Chana Masala

Chana Masala

In a time crunch? Then this 30 minute recipe is for you. Chickpeas make a hearty meal, and I always have multiple cans of chickpeas in my pantry.  I also always have pre-fried onions on hand, which cuts down a lot of cooking time. That's why I'm never too far from a pot of delicious Chana Masala.

Loaded Egg Salad Sandwich

Loaded Egg Salad Sandwich

I love a good egg salad sandwich, and this loaded egg salad sandwich is the real deal. Once you try this recipe you will never settle for bland egg salad again. My version is loaded with zesty thousand island dressing and fresh vegetables, making it so much better than a simple egg and mayonnaise mixture. The thousand island gives this such a nice, zippy flavor. But even if you skip it, the vegetables and seasoning is enough to wow you. I take these along for picnics, but I have also served these for brunch. They're a regular at my table during Ramadan year after year.
