Slow Cook Kale & Butternut Squash Dal (羽衣甘藍 & 南瓜, 印度豆)
Dal or dhal is a dried pulse which has been split. The outer hull is usually stripped off; dal that has not been hulled is described as chilka (skin), e.g. chilka urad dal, mung dal chilka.
Dhal is the Indian staple made from split pulses. They’re high in fibre, full of good protein, low in calories, fat-free, quick and easy to cook, reasonable cheap, substantial, versatile and delicious. It can serve with rice or naan bread. The chana dhal, an Indian chickpea, used most often to make dhal in India. But now, most of the people use the yellow split peas, red or green lentil instead. Split peas will give a slightly creamier dhal. If you can’t find fresh curry leaves, you can use frozen one like me.
The original graham cracker was made with graham flour, a combination of finely-ground unbleached-wheat flour with the wheat bran and germ coarsely-ground and added back in providing flavor. It has unsweetened or mildly sweetened, they are more commonly known as a sugar- or honey-sweetened baked good that approaches a cookie.
Homemade Figs & Cranberry with ‘Pu-erh’普洱茶 Mincemeat for Christmas Mince Pie
Wish you all have a wonderful and happy Christmas with your family and friends. Enjoy and have a great time together!
Mince pie is the must-to-do list for my family during every Christmas. But the shop bought mincemeat put me off. I don’t like them at all since I bought one jar from the shop to make my mince pie (I tried few of different brands already). They’re far too sweet for me.
Omg! It’s hard to believe that nearly the end of 2013 already ~ only 1 day remaining! Why is the time flying too fast and without any trace !!

In South Africa he was known as the father of the nation and was laid to rest in his home village after his death on December 5.
~ Lady Margaret Thatcher who died of 87, (Oct. 13, 1925 —April 8, 2013)
Britain’s only female Prime Minister who will be remembered for smashing the miners, leading Britain to victory in the Falklands War… and trying to dismantle the welfare state.
She served as PM from 1979 to 1990 and was the first to win three successive General Elections.
Lady Thatcher had been battling dementia and died on April 8 at The Ritz where she had been staying since Christmas.
There still lots we’ll remember them…

But in the whole year 2013, we still have some great news to remember.
