10 Exotic Dishes You Can Try At Home Without Traveling Around

We travel around the world to experience the different cultures and heritages, to taste the exotic dishes that represent the countries, to acquire knowledge and most importantly, to witness the beauties every country posses.

It is said that if you want to see a country without visiting it, then try their local dishes. The food will tell you a lot about the country. This article will mainly focus on cuisines taken from all over the world, for you to try at home, so that, at least, you can feel the exotic lives of our fellow human beings all over the globe.

          Dal Makhani, or Whole Black Lentil, is a very famous dish in India. Originated from North India, it has spread throughout the whole nation, and beyond. The main ingredients are Whole Black Lentil, Red Kidney Beans, butter oil, or ghee, and full fat cream. These are what make this food very rich. Dal Makhani goes best with naan or pita bread. But you can also eat it with white rice.

          5. Lamb Biryani

            Biryani is a highly popular dish in South Asia. This dish is commonly served as the main meal in weddings, and on special occasions. The aromatic basmati rice is combined with lambs cooked in spices, and yogurt, making this an exotic cuisine. You can try it with chicken instead of lamb, or even substitute with shrimps. Vegetarians can omit all and can add their favorite veggies to make a vegetable biryani.

            6. Shish Kebabs

It is usually said not to marinade for more than 30 minutes. You can grill your personal choice vegetables to go with this exotic dish. The best way to enjoy Shish Kebabs are with naans.

              7. Frikkadels (South African meat balls)

                    If you haven’t ever tried Belgium waffles, now is the right time to do it! If you are the lucky person with a waffle iron at home, then I think you should put on your apron now. This waffle is different from the usual waffles you eat. They are not served with ice cream or maple syrup. They are crisp, and the entire waffle is made out of generous amount of butter. You can dust sugar powder on top.

                    10. Kompot (European Drink)

This European drink is a perfect fruit drink that is non alcoholic, and bursts with the flavors of currants and peaches. It is basically an ideal beverage for summer, but can be drank any time of the year.

                      With these, I bid farewell from you all. I hope you have  tasted some exotic world cuisines through this article, and hope you will, at least, try one or two recipes at home.

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                      On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                      Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                      1. Smart Door Locks

                      A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                      2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                      Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                      3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                      If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                      5. Nest Thermostat

                      This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property.
