Few days before i got a small packet which includes set of five teas from Golden Tips Tea in exchange of reviewing and sharing my honest opinion on my blog. Truly when i taste them.. my experience was exotic and stress free. Here are some samples which i tasted.

Himalayan Black Tea : A premium selection from the scenic estates in the foothills of the Himalayas. This full leaf tea is characteristic of a sparkling golden color, flowery aroma and a smooth flavor with mild fruit taste.

Himalayan Green Tea: A fine whole leaf green tea grown in the Himalayan heights amidst lush and tall pine trees. This tea has been caringly processed and twisted into attractive designer leaves. With mild fruity undertones and mellowness, the derived light golden liquor makes for an ideal health beneficial cup to cherish.

Masala Chai: Masala Chai means Spiced tea is one of most popular tea in the world, originating from India. This unique, classic and old age tea blended with aromatic spices i.e. green cardamom, black pepper, cloves and cinnamon.

Cinnamon Cardamom Green Tea: we always tried cinnamon and cardamom with black tea like masala chai but fusion with green tea is very unique. This perfect combination of fragrant spices makes for a balanced and mildly aromatic taste for health conscious tea lovers.

Roseherb Green Tea: A soothing blend of pure green tea and a variety of exotic medicinal herbs from the Himalayas in India. This light and mellow herbal green tea is characteristic of a rich grassy aroma with sweetish and rosy undertones, a smooth flavor with fairly bright liquor in the cup.

Cinnamon and Cardamom Green tea is the best Tea. It is fresh, healthy, exotic and very flavorful. Its a perfect beverage for tea lovers who miss masala chai but can't enjoy due to some health issues. You can enjoy this exotic experience in any way either hot or chilled.

Dal Makhani – Jain Style ( No Onion & No Garlic)

Everyone loves Punjabi Dhaba Style Dal Makhani ... full on butter, cream and onion-garlic that's call Punjabi khana. But this time I tried Dal Makhani without onion and garlic, so don’t worry about taste or consistency.

Dal Makhani is a very popular dish from Punjabi region in India. This dal made with whole black lentil, kidney beans and chana dal. This dish gets richness and thick consistency from the use of cream but if you want to skip cream, they you can use whipped yogurt or skip dairy products.

In India, so many people are there who eat everyday meal without onion and garlic, like Jain community and many more like us. I always cook my routine gravies, vegetables and all other recipes without onion and garlic. It's a myth between us that without onion... taste not good.

To get richness in dal, I used cashew powder, cream and tomatoes. If you are beginner and want perfect taste, try to use dal makhani masala.
