Star Rating WIDGET PACK

Soul food means the food which you can enjoy from the bottom of your heart while eating. Being a bengali I always face a common question- 'fish and posto(poppy seeds) are your soul food, right?'. And my answer is always 'oh, hell yaa' ... ? Today I will talk about vegetarian food. We always make 'biulir daal' / 'urad daal' with posto. The combo is nothing but heavenly. There is a must ingredient we use in our urad daal is 'hing' / asafoetida. Many bengalis also enjoy this meal with fried eggplant / begunvaja. The recipe is very simple and easy. It is a no onion and no garlic dish. Try this in your kitchen and make your lunch a traditional one.
