Tried & Tasted - Dhingri Badaami

My dear friend Raaga is hosting this month's Tried & Tasted, an event originated by Zlamushka.

This month Tried & Tasted celebrated the blog of Sunshinemom...a blog as pleasing and vibrant as Sunshine.

Her Blog is exhaustive in terms of exotic and not so exotic recipes. I love the look and feel of the blog(that's why she is on my blog roll).She also manages to change any ordinary recipe to vegan, something I wouldn't dare. Kudos to her.

There were so many of her recipes that I wanted to try, that I spent the whole month since Raaga's announcement browsing through her blog wondering what to make till I realised that today was already the last day.

So picked up this exotic preparation for the event as well as Don's Lunchbox.

I followed the recipe as it is except for two variations:

1.I used Kashmiri Red Chilli powder instead of ordinary variety of Chilli powder, which made the curry look very red

2. I added some cream at the end of cooking to give the curry a little more rich taste.

Go on, visit Sunshinemom and enjoy her blog as much as I do.
