Punjabi Thali

Today I will be showing you a Punjabi Thali. I am new to Punjabi cuisine and so I created my dishes with the help of a book full of Punjabi Dishes. Recently I bought Tarla Dalal's Punjabi Khana and I was very much pleased with the book. I selected what appeared to be simple recipes and we had a filling lunch. With so much cheese, butter and ghee it was quite a heavy meal and I had to skip my dinner because I felt full until the next day. But it was a completely satisfying and mind blowing experience. Lassi and Paneer Amritsari were my favorites among all. Gajrela became hubby's favorite. Even he packed some for his friend. We really enjoyed Punjabi Khana.

Today's Menu:
Cardamom Lassi-Cool drink prepared with curd
Paneer Amritsari-Crispy and spicy fried Paneer
Sukhi Bhindi-Dry sauteed okra
Jeera Aloo-Spicy potatoes flavored with cumin seeds
Pudhina Raitha- Curd and mint leaves mixed together with spices
Roti-Whole wheat flour rotis
Makai Ki Roti-Rotis with Maize flour
Paneer Makhani -A rich creamy Paneer gravy
Carrot Rice-A simple rice dish using carrots
Gajrela / Carrot Halwa- Carrot and sweetened milk together create this magic
