Tried and Tasted : Ambe dal & Rainbow chard Mushroom Sandwich
Posted by vivnidhi on June 26, 2008
I like Nupur’s One Hot Stove. She has a very nice blog with again very nice recipes AND nice knitting and crochet work. I conclude, its nice:).
1. Ambe dal (Recipe in the link)
Nupur says “In the summer months, when the sweltering heat overpowers the afternoons, people are not often in the mood for hot tea. Panha, the mango drink that I wrote about in the A-Z of Marathi food, is often served in place of tea at afternoon events during these months. The traditional snack that accompanies the panha is this ambe dal. A cool, spicy, tart relish, ambe dal provides a great counterpoint to the sweet panha. Dal-Panha events are something to look forward to!”
I made it in the month of April , here in Michigan, we still had our heaters on and there was obviously no Panha. I ate Ambe Dal as a snack and it pairs fabulously with paranthas. One does not need anything else. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Unfortunately I do not have a picture.
2. Rainbow Chard Mushroom Sandwiches (Recipe in the link)
I made this sandwich when I was in the mood for a sandwich and I had to finish up my red chard:). So, I used red chard instead of rainbow and normal button mushrooms instead of cremini and dried basil instead of fresh. Yet the sandwich tasted very good.
As Nupur puts it ” The verdict: This simple sandwich made for a memorable lunch on a hot and sunny day. The mushrooms and greens are a terrific combination. The whole sandwich comes together very well, and tastes like something you would eat at a nice bistro.” No better way to say it.
Thank you Nupur!
