What is Punjabi food?
I was inspired to start Incredible Kitchen to share the recipes for the food that my mom cooks every day. The food that she cooks is quintessential Punjabi, using traditional techniques developed over thousands of years. Moreover, the Punjabi food, cooked in the homes, is mostly vegetarian and uses seasonal vegetables, copious amounts of garlic, ginger, onions, tomatoes and green chillies. While the spices such as coriander, cumin seeds and ajwain add flavour and heat, the fresh herbs such as coriander add further flavour and fragrance to the dishes. Dishes are accompanied with pickles, chutneys, salad and home-made yogurt called dahi. Chapatis and rice round up the meal.
So, on this new year eve, I am sharing the recipe for making panchranga daal which is made in millions of Punjabi homes every day. It’s relatively easy to make and is delicious. Give it a try and you won’t be disappointed.
