Presenting Chefs Across Boundaries – another feather in my cap!
Chef’s Across Boundaries is a group of chef’s coming from diversified culture exchanging their regional cuisines. It is an initiative started by a handful of food bloggers and food enthusiasts who have taken up the challenge to explore unique and traditional recipes with a motive to expand culinary knowledge as well as to promote the hidden gems which are yet to make an impact in the culinary world. The swapping extravaganza is promising and it allows chefs to whip up new dishes. It’s a journey which is making me get bigger and better !

I would thank ‘Chefs Across Boundaries’ for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to learn and explore different cuisines, that will help me grow and enhance my culinary skills.
I made Dalma as my first recipe swap challenge given by my co-blogger friend Sai Priya from www.ladysphinger.wordpress.com. Followed her recipe to the T from https://ladysphinger.wordpress.com/2015/01/13/dalma/
Dalma is a dish made from Toor Dal and Vegetables. It is a traditional curry from Odisha, which is a part of Chappan Bhog served in Puri Jaganath Temple. It is generally made from toor dal and contains chopped vegetables like Elephant yam, Unripe Banana, Eggplant, Pumpkin, Raddish, Drumsticks etc. It is tempered with paanch phoren and garnished with coconut and coriander.
In temples the Dalma is made in earthen vessels using the authentic recipe, though the recipe has many variations too.
I thank Sai Priya for introducing me with this recipe and letting me go through a wonderful culinary experience. The recipe was easy to make and was full of flavors. I personally loved adding a huge variety of veggies in it. We had it with hot steaming rice, it tasted absolutely divine and was relished by my family as well.
Lets move on to the recipe….
