Blissssssssss.....

Anyone out there know how you feel after eating a LOT of awesome Daal-dhokli?
Solitaire, Neeku, Ceedy, thinking of guys right now. Wish you were here to share it with me.
Firstly, because, I really really would like to have you guys here, and secondly, my Bihari husband just doesn't get it! He wouldn't even touch it! Whatever...more for me ;)

I am in that food coma right now that only dd can induce! Man, I'm good.

(am totally in love with myself right now for feeding me such good food)

Lotta folks asking me what Daal-dhokli is. There's a recipe here:
