Lunch from Mehfil's - two items so I could taste both. I wonder who writes their descriptions everyday because they always make me want to try new things:

(Potatoes cooked in red onions and roasted cumin’s)
Haryana the city of agriculture has its old traditions of cooking; here cumin’s are the specialty and you can find cumin in every dish. The base is prepared with red onions, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, and several other spices and a touch of Asafetida. After cutting the potatoes into cubes they are sautéed with the base and roasted cumin’s.

(Pork cubes cooked in fresh spinach, red onions, and tomato gravy)
There are very few dishes, which are cooked with Asafetida; a dry gum of a particular tree found in upper Himalaya, The proper use of this gum is used to prepare several medicines treating stomach ailments and defective digestion system. Here Pork is cooked with the freshly chopped spinach adding over a blend of twenty spices in the gravy of red onions, garlic, ginger, and tomatoes.

Sigh. I completely forgot to photograph this entire day.
