It was a looong Summer Break - But you know what it was totally worth it and much needed. Just after Eid we went to Washington to attend my Uncle's (Taya) 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebrations and my mom and dad joined us there. They flew all the way back from Pakistan to be part of this memorable event, to see all this commitment and compromising and love pouring all over since 50 years! *mashaAllah*
Then since we were already there we drove to NYC to spend 4th of July weekend! Mom and dad were happy to be back home, we took them to see their first apartment, dad went to see his office and luckily get a chance to see his colleague. DAMN! Right.. he was fortunate enough masaAllah!
It was our first time with this long road trip with kids, it was tiring but all worth it! Includes Zip lining, white water rafting, statue of liberty, time square at day time and at night time again!
But we are back to life and back to routine Alhumdulilah! So I tried this Shahi Daal Handi, it exactly as it sound.. Daal with a twist! Some garam masala, cooked with milk for creamier texture and then served with cilantro and roasted almonds!
Its supposed to be thicker than usual daals, you can serve it with Roshni roti or naan to enjoy more its deliciousness.
