toor dal party!

There is still time to post something for JFI: Toor Dal!

Cook something new, or choose an old fav from your archives.
All are welcome, right up until December 7
(little late deadline for busy time of year).

And a great big thank you to those of you who have already contributed πŸ™‚

There are lots of fantastic dishes waiting for the round up coming mid-December. Above are a few of my own entries. See if any inspirational chefs recognize their recipes in Nana’s dishes! πŸ™‚

    Linda dear thanks so much for the extended deadline. I am going to go on vacation so there is just too much work to wrap up. I thought I wouldnt be able to make it but I am sure Dec 7 gives me a lot more chance.

    Hi Ashwini — I understand how hectic things can be when you’re tying up loose ends before a vacation! If you have time, great — if not, send it when you get back and I will add it to the round up πŸ™‚

    Looks like I’ve missed a few things! I don’t know if I’ll be able to make an entry, but I sure look forward to the roundup. But would you like to hear something strange Linda? Now, keep in mind that I didn’t know until today that you were hosting December’s Jihva, or that you chose Toor. I’ve been trying to do a “use up” of all of my legumes before I buy any more, and I was doing really well until a few days ago when I spied bags of toor dhal on the grocer’s shelf. I used up my stash long ago, see, but… I just couldn’t help myself!!! I missed it so…oh, what a fantastic flavour it has! Chana will always be #1 with me, but toor…it’s not #2, no… it’s #1.5! πŸ˜€

    Hi Pel, I guess I can accept 1.5 πŸ˜‰ I have that same rule about using up what I’ve got before buying more. Happily, some rules were made to be broken! πŸ™‚

  18. Thanks linda for allowing old posts! I have a few which I can send by tomorrow! Nice party! Loved your dinner set! πŸ™‚

    Thanks Latha, I’m glad you liked nana’s dishes πŸ™‚ Send along anything you like, more the merrier! πŸ™‚

  19. sandeepa said

    You sure must be having a field day, eating all that toor dal πŸ™‚

    Ha ha Sandeepa, I just pictured a field full of toor dal growing! πŸ˜‰

  20. Vani said

    Oooh, everything looks yum, Linda! And I love your nana’s dishes too -beautiful!

    Thank you so much Vani dear! Round up in a week or so including your own yummy dish! πŸ™‚

  21. sagari said

    Hi Remya, glad you like the party πŸ™‚ I’m sorry for the mixup with email — there is ‘1911’ at the end of that out of the garden. Not to worry, I will run to your blog and pick it up! Thanks so much πŸ™‚

  23. Indira said

    I see brinjal sambar, spinach or gongura dal, ridge gourd- tomato and toor dal combination, again sambar or rasam with toor dal. Correct?:)

    What a party that is, lovely Linda.:)

    Many thanks, and you’re correct, Indira πŸ™‚ The sambhar on the right is Shilpa’s Ash Gourd sambhar. And the ridge gourd/tomato dal comes from your recipe that V. likes πŸ™‚ Almost time for the BIG party now!

  24. pritya said

    Hi Linda, That looks an awesome spread and a real inspiration for those who are yet to discover the complete charms of toor dal. Like all your friends, we are also waiting to see all the entries. It is amazing to see such common interests and excitement among bloggers…its quite a wonderful world – the blog world.
