BM# 72
Week: 4, Day 1
Theme: Special Theme

Last week of this marathon, and I have picked Special Theme for this week. The special Theme will feature recipes from Hyderabadi Cuisine. This is a spread which I posted some time back and I have posted a couple of recipes from the spread, I still have some more to post.

Hyderabadi cuisine is a royal cuisine and we have a special daal called khatti Daal which is served with Biryani. The khatti daal is made with Pigeon pea daal , but I have made the same daal with mixed daals , a little twist which my guests really liked.
