Looks Yumm... I have a green gram dal curry in my blog, which is very traditional one, passed from generations ... seen my grandmom, mom , aunts all preparing it :)

Was caught by the words...Cooking to win a man's heart ... you know why??? My hubby is a guy who told me " You are not my cook! You are the love of my life.... " .... I still rememer how I used to struggle even to cook rice,or prepare coffee or tea. I could only manage to prepare some curd rice initially (just mixing rice with curd, then used to season it) which was not even similar to the fantastic varieties of curd rice that I prepare now. With time and interest all things changed... Except for my hubby... who still says the same :)
