Welcome

Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !

Dal Makhani (spicy lentils with tomatoes and cream, India)

Français

Here is an Indian spicy recipe. It's a classic of Indian cookery and it's delicious (but quite hot !)


Ingredients (for 4 people)
100 g red lentils
200 g brown lentils
Garlic and ginger paste (25 g garlic and 75 g ginger)
10 g chilli purée
50 g tomato purée
30 ml cream
5 g garam masala
5 g fenugreek
Fresh coriander

Preparation
Put the lentils in water for 30 min. Meanwhile, prepare the garlic and ginger paste.
In a casserole dish, boil some water and let the lentils simmer for 25 min (if necessary, add some water).
In a frying pan, warm up the rest of the ginger and garlic past with the tomato purée. Cook for 5-10 min. Add the chilli powder and cook for another 5 min. Add salt.
Pour on the lentils, add cream, fenugreek and garam masala. If necessary, add salt and pepper.
Decorate with coriander before serving.

I think it would be a good idea to add a tomato. And go easy on the garlic, because I put too much and I no chance that I will be attacked by a vampire tonight :)

Bon appétit !!
