Gajak is a brittle made traditionally with peanuts, sesame seeds and jaggery. Enjoy this chikki as you bask in the winter sun or around the Lohri bonfire.
Is this Roasted Red Capsicum Spread basically same Muhammara dip that I shared yesterday?
Yes, the main ingredients are same but the taste is different and delicious. I made both the dips together and wanted to post them in one post.
The girls could make out the difference so I thought I will dedicate a single post for this. I had told them to make sandwiches and they slathered one slice of the bread with Muhammara and the second with this spread. Of course, I have no pictures of the sandwiches they made but I can imagine with cucumbers, and tomatoes it must have tasted delicious.
Needless to say, they want a repeat of both the dips again! This one is from Vaishali’s place here.
