Sometimes you need something special in the evening. Special does not mean anything expensive. A couple of Singara (Samosa) and Tomato ketchup does the job quite well.
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…
Perfect companion for a rainy evening. Sliced potatoes dipped in gram flour mix with masala of your choice and deep fried. Served with tomato and chilli sauce and a cup of hot tea! Alu pakoda Tomato and chilli sauce Alu pakoda with hot Tea!
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!!
Another surprise dinner from my wife this evening! “Murgi’r kosha mangsho” (in bengali) that is thick Chicken curry with soft Parathas. Oh man! The curry was awesome. Its color and smell, and the green chilly. I love green chilly.
It is one of my favorite street food from Kolkata and I really enjoy watching it to be prepared. First make round Parathas while making it add a raw egg mixed with onion, chilly on one side of it. It will paste the egg on the parathas. Then put some salads and sauce on it…
A perfect pure veg breakfast. Medium sized balls of flavored flour which is called Luchi served with Chana/Chhola daal. I can eat more than 20 Luchis at a time!
