Dal Palak is my 100th post. There. I said it. Dal palak is my 100th post! It was quite tough for me to say this because I always thought that my 100th post will be a fancy cake or a rich dessert but I chose the simpleton Dal Palak. Read on….
While it has been said that the journey is more exciting than the destination itself, I humbly disagree. The beginning of a new journey, the uncertainty, the milestones, the end of a bad one are all so much more exciting to me. Are they scary? Sure, they are. Do I not enjoy the comforting lull of a smooth journey? Sure, I do. But, the statement says it itself. It is a lull albeit comforting. The joy that milestones bring with them is what spurs me on. I like looking back with a feeling of satisfaction and looking forward with a sensation of anxiety.
Sharing each recipe with you all and the whole journey upto this day was a roller-coaster ride. But, I am happy today. Because, I wondered along the way, if I would ever have enough recipes to call it a collection, if I really do know 100 recipes to share. Was it a mistake to start a blog? We underestimate our own potential sometimes. But, blogging has opened up unexplored areas of my brain and I survived!
So, here’s to 100 recipes and all of you! Your love and encouragement has kept me motivated to share more recipes every day. A HUGE THANK YOU! (and a giveaway too!) Keep it coming guys! 🙂
The past couple of weeks have gone by wondering what is that special recipe I want to share today. Nachiket and myself shortlisted, Tiramisu. One of our favorite desserts. We cannever have enough of it! After I made the perfect, creamy, melt-in-the-mouth, Tiramisu, and binged on it, I made dal palak. (We gotta eat right? Tiramisu is dessert, what about the main course?) The hot rice, warm dal, the texture of spinach, the flavors of garlic; this is what soul food is for me. As much as I love Tiramisu, at the end of a long day, I would choose a bowl of warm dal palak over a slice of Tiramisu.
Then, It hit me! Celebration is not about something fancy but about something that is close to your heart. What better to share with all my readers (who are as close to my heart as the blog itself!) a recipe that spells comfort to me?
And the most important thing, the recipe is totally in line with the GIVEAWAY! Yay!
