"Paturi - Delicious Parcels Wrapped in  Leaves"

Paturi has become one of the signature dishes of Bengali cuisine. It is made by marinating the  fish or vegetable or paneer in a mustard base marinate and then by wrapping it in a piece of leaf like banana, ash gourd or pumpkin and finally making it a parcel and steaming it or baking it. This could be the best option for persons who like their food to be cooked with minimum oil or with no oil.

The Bengali Christmas Breakfast Thali

Winter is around and so are the fresh winter vegetables. It is also the season of festivity. All my neighbouring houses are decked with colourful lightings to welcome Santa Claus. This is the time of the year when the entire family, friends and relatives gather to devour the festive delicacies.

Lau Chingri

I have been eating simple food these days as I had enough of the fatty and oily food for the past few months. This has given me a few calories as gift. Thus, I am craving for food that is healthy, nutritious but tasty.

Omelette Curry

Among all the festivities and eating out this month we are in no mood for cooking. So I decided to cook the simplest yet favourite food in a Bengali household. Yes, something with egg. Egg is a comfort food and can be had in any form by boiling the eggs, fried egg, and the usual egg (dimer jhol) curry. But, I took a little more time and prepared the omelette curry to be in tune with the festivity that is all around us.

Goalando Chicken Curry

The most talked about and controversial chicken dish indeed. Basically it’s a heritage chicken dish from a small town of Bangladesh, Goalondo, situated in the bank of river Padma. During the British raj, the train connection between then Capital Calcutta and East Bengal was terminated in Goalondo and those travelling to East Bengal, Assam or Burma took the steamer from Goalondo.

Desserts are the best part of a meal and we the Bengali people are known for our sweet meats. Moreover, my son’s birthday is only a few days later. He is not very fond of sweets except a few. So I have to think of a dessert, which can make him a happy man. Yes, a man as he is turning 18th

From Sharmila's Kitchen - "Daab Chingri”

Posted in

Daab chingri – Shrimp cooked in tender coconut. It sounds as exotic as it tastes delicious. Chingri (Prawns) and Ilish Mach (Hilsa Fish) are both candidates for any festive occasion in a Bengali household. Prawns are more versatile as it is easy to cook and taste heavenly. It is usually cooked with most of the vegetables and in festive occasions we usually prepare the Chingrir malaikari or the potoler dolma.
