Traditional Tarar Sauce (a family recipe)

A real tatar sauce is pretty heavy, but delicious! This is why we serve it only on special occasions like Christmas or Easter. It tastes the best with hard-boiled eggs or fresh, high-quality ham. 221 more words

Cabbage spinach kootu (Cabbage and spinach dal)

This is a  healthy and simple kootu/dal made using cabbage and spinach. I usually make this with cabbage alone sans the coriander leaves.
