Vegetable Dalca

Not bad for a "first-timer"

When I got this recipe from my friend Sue of Paka, Terengganu, I was excited and tried it for dinner the very same day! After office, I dropped by the supermarket and grabbed two packets of frozen roti canai and some vegetables. As this recipe calls for fresh lamb bones, I substitute it with lamb slice (meant for making steaks). I reached home around 6 pm and started with my cooking adventure!

A perfect match!

True enough, the dalca was simply delicious and very easy to prepare. The only problem was my dal wasn’t tender enough as I was cooking it in a rush! It should be boiled for quiet sometime to get the right texture…Oh, well…next time round, I’ll make sure it will turned out better than this..hehe..

So, this recipe is especially dedicated to working moms who are always looking for simple, delicious recipe. As I always try to serve dinner before Maghrib, simple recipes such as this always save the day!

Happy cooking!
