Fried rice & Alur dum

We usually had “Khichdi” in lunch every year on this day. Saraswati pujo is celebrated like a grand festival of winter here in our area. This year was no difference except the menu was changed. Fried rice and Alur dum (Potato dum, or a thick curry) instead of traditional “Khichdi.” I mean why not? It’s…

I take my lunch with me to Office. Well most of the time I do. Variety of foods prepared my my wife usually fits inside my lunchbox. Here is one of them. Veg Fried Rice prepared with multiple vegetables like Cauliflowers, Carrots, Potatoes and Capsicum. Not a very common combination but I had it well enough with a Omelet….

Fish Curry

Bengalis do love Fish! Machher jhol is something a Bengali cannot ignore, at home. My wife prepared me this Fish Curry when I was really missing this at Dubai. She added Ground nuts with this. I really loved it! If you can sort out those small bones yourself, enjoy!!

Butter Chicken, My Style

I think I am getting better with these cooking stuff everyday! I tried Butter Chicken a few days ago. I don’t know how it should look like, but the taste was awesome! I had used a little more Eggs with Corn starch to fry the Chickens. It locks the moisture of the Chicken inside. Amazing isn’t…

Chicken Yoghurt Gravy

Living a bachelor’s life despite being married with a kid is the most painful part of my life. Yes, I had a kid few months back and I am working here at Dubai for a few months while my family is there at Kolkata. Anyway the “sad-sad” days will be over in a few days,…

Dhoka’r Dalna with Parathas

Dhoka, which is prepared using Matar (Peas) daal and Coconut grinded and mixed well before cooking them on a frying pan. My wife used nuts pasted as well, which then added some more taste to it. The best part is the making of the rectangular shapes when it is being cut. I love to do…

Luchi with Begun vaja (Brinjal fry with Poories)

Brinjal fry or Begun vaja (বেগুন ভাজা) is what we say it in Bengali, was not my favorite food at all until recently,  when I moved to Dubai from my home city Kolkata. That was the time when I truly realized that how much I love Bengali foods. I love any foods though so that’s…

Crunchy Cauliflower

Crunchy Cauliflower or Kurkure Fulkopi (Fulkopi is what we call Cauliflower in bengali) is not very common food here. I still remember when I was a kid, we used to have Cauliflower and Potato curry, sometimes with Fish curry. I still remember, it was available only in winter. Now we can have it anytime in the year…

Chicken and Egg Fried Rice

“Chicken Fried Rice,” “Egg Fried Rice,” “Prawn Fried Rice” or “Mixed Fried Rice” is one of my favorite dish, which is very easily available in any Chinese Restaurants in Kolkata. One interesting thing about the previous line is, you will find that so many dishes are “one of my favorite” dish. Actually everything I post here is actually…
