Dal Bukhara Infused With Smokey Aroma (Dhungar Technique)

I am really happy to see the “Dhungar technique” written and shown by Ms. Yoshita here. We use this technique a lot in our food, be it a simple tempered dal, kebabs or special keema samosas. This smoking technique lends the food a delicate fragrant smoky taste. Please try this technique especially on the kebabs.

Sometimes along with the ghee, we add aromatic spices like cloves so that the meat or whatever is the dish is infused with a delicate fragrance of cloves.

Kaari Chicken| Chicken in coconut curry| Bohri specialty Chicken curry |Chicken curry without tomato and Onion

Kaari Chicken

I first tasted Kaari Chicken after my marriage. My MIL makes this amazing delicious curry, mildly spiced with the creaminess of coconut milk and goodness of dry fruits. It tastes heavenly with some steamed rice and a dash of lemon🍋. The main masala called kari masala is available in some areas of Mumbai – The bohri stores of Crawford maket, but it can be made easily from scratch too.

Just boil the chicken with some ginger garlic paste, green chilies and salt. And in another vessel fry the Kari masala mixed in half a cup of water in some oil until the masala gets cooked and release some oil, Add the boiled chicken and fry some more, add coconut milk, salt, chili powder. Cook it for 10 minutes. Add the remaining stock obtained from boiling the chicken, tamarind water and some more water if you desire a thin runny curry. I have seen some folks even eating the curry like soup yumm yumm.

Ice cream with leftover non dairy whipped cream |Quick Easy ice-cream with aquafaba (whipping cream)|Reuse whipping cream | No machine ice cream

I always made Dairy ice creams but never tried with aquafaba ( Now what is Aquafaba you ask!! The viscous water in which legume seeds such as chickpeas have been cooked, basically the non dairy whipping cream available everywhere 😜)

This is a very versatile recipe, just take cream, milk and condensed milk and add your favourite topping or syrup or crush like Strawberry, blueberry, chocolate, raspberry and enjoy.

I have been baking cakes for a long time now but never really bothered a lot about icing cakes.
