Cabbage Dhal

There's always something wrong after coming here , it's either no access to the internet or loss of  information. This time, totally different, my laptop (again!) fails to get started and there goes all my work. Yeah, all my pics, bunches of  finished album got trapped inside the hard disk of my laptop. And ,  no way, in this weather am gonna retrieve it soon , at least not for 2 weeks.So, am just simply clicking all new dishes , if I make any. Last week, I've tried many dishes but I din't take pics as I'm also experiencing a lit bit of starting trouble, sssss it really happens if u stay out of touch from blogging. This is just a plain dhal tastes great with roti's and rice.. Check it out guys.
