Once in a while...

....I cook something different; try out a new recipe. And when that happens, I feel it needs to be put on record.
If I've not said it before, I'll say it now- I'm not much of a cook and I do not like spending too much time in the kitchen. But I do like love eating good food ...unlike my two year old...:( 
Anyhow, back to my time in the kitchen. I was having some friends over for dinner in the middle of the week- sometimes that's good to break the routine (Do you do that sometimes?). While planning on what to cook (not too elaborate), I was reminded of a new dish that I tasted at a wedding when I was in India this time. I had liked it so much that I decided to try it myself sometime. This was the perfect opportunity. After googling 'Spinach and corn in white gravy', I came across something similar here. A bit of tweaking, and here is what I brought to the table...

To go along with this was Dal Makhani

After cooking so much I had no energy for making the dessert. But.....I still served it. It was simple, but it did look gorgeous. 

Mangoes & strawberries with a whipped topping. What d'ya say???
