This is a traditional bengali dish. 'Basanti' means yellow colour. You can also call this Sweet (mishti) Pulao. My mom make this in many gatherings along with Macher Kalia or Mutton Kosha. I have literally no words about the combination. This is the must combination 'he' wants on his birthday. But once we had this with Chicken Dopyaza (already on blog) and that combo was also so good! Give it a try and let me know how it turned out for you.

Our common friend Subhodip visited our house last weekend for a dinner. He is a real foodie and have a very good knowledge about food and restaurants. So, I wanted to make something new on chicken for him and also for my blog. I have already posted 'mutton dopyaza' recipe, then I thought this time why not with chicken? Confirmed the idea with my hubby and 'chicken dopyaza' got selected for main-course along with 'mishti pulao'. They both gave me very positive reaction after finishing the dinner .... yaay ? ! The recipe won't give you any stress, you can easily make them for big gatherings. If you are the host, then it's the perfect dish. The gravy is rich and very flavorful with juicy chicken pieces. 'Dopyaza' means you have to use double amount of onion - I used onion paste and cubed onion. Try this in your kitchen and enjoy a delicious, fuss free dinner.

We, Bengalis, love to eat fish in many forms. One of the popular snack of West Bengal is 'macher chop'. Spicy crumbled fish inside and crispy coating outside - scrumptious !! We both usually enjoy this snack in the evening along with a cup of tea or with a can of beer. Both combos are unbeatable. If you have to impress any Bengali ever in your life, just indulge him/her in 'Bikeler adda' (evening gossip), 'a cup of tea', Macher chop' and 'Rabindra sangeet'. I can gurantee he/she will request you to arrange another meeting soon ?. Try this in your kitchen and enjoy a special evening with your loved ones.

Whenever you read 'dhaba style' (street food joint style), you must be thinking that the recipe will be interesting ... right? Well, you are not wrong. This recipe is very, very exciting and creates exact taste of Dhabewali Aloo Palak. It is close to Palak Paneer recipe but slightly different and little low in calories. This dish goes best with plain chapati or naan. Try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turned out for you.

This dish was invented in dhabas from Himachal Pradesh. Nowadays it is available in almost every dhaba and restaurant. Its a very different recipe as it requires mutton pieces along with some minced mutton. Can you imagine that whenever you will scoop up some gravy with naan or roti there will be loads of Keema .... how delicious that sounds ! This dish goes best with Biriyani, Pulao and Butter naan. Try it in your kitchen and let me know how it turns out for you.
