Cauliflower-stuffed Malaysian-style Paratha, Leftover Dhal and Black Chickpeas from Vimala's Curryblossom Cafe

Last night after a photography class that I taught, we went out to see a free outdoor movie (the classic Hitchock film, North by Northwest) and picnicked on food that we picked up from one of our favorite restaurants, Vimala's Curryblossom Cafe. Her food is always abundant, so we had leftovers, which I used in tonight's meal.

I served her tasty dhal (this one was pasty and not like a soup) and black chickpeas with a cauliflower stuffed Malaysian-style paratha (which we picked up recently from an Indian store). Neighbors gave us tasty tomatoes that they had grown; I put a little Meyer lemon-infused extra virgin olive oil (just a drop or two), salt, and freshly ground pepper on the tomatoes, and served with Sungold tomatoes, fresh basil, and a few breaded mushrooms that were leftover from Cafe Parizade from last Sunday.
