I drive around 17 miles one way to the office. It takes me 40 mins to 1 hr (depending on the traffic which is usually very high) because first, I drop my wife at her office and then my son at the school. Same route in reverse while coming back.
I am from central part of India and we have dishes like ""Dal-Baati"and "dal-paniya". I cannot imagine having this dishes on dining table. We use to sit on floor, the dished are served in "pattal" (plates made by peepal leaves).
I like dal-baati speacially the dal made with "Urad" and Green Chutney and raw onion served with it.
