Rajasthan is a state of India which is situated at the western part. In childhood I went there with my family on vacation, though I remember nothing much except our album photos. Rajasthan is the land of kings and 'laal maas', which is hot and spicy red colored mutton curry, is their well known dish. The dish is everything about color and flavors. They cook the mutton in a yogurt and onion based sauce with lots of chilies and garlicky flavor. The authentic Laal Maas recipe calls for 'mathania chilli' because they creat very nice red color with much less heat in gravy. Well, many of us don't have access to those chilies, so feel free to use kashmiri red chilies. Now, the recipe is very simple with loads of flavor, after all it's a mutton curry, it has to be delicious !

In Bengal, Durgapujo is incomplete without Ghugni. During pandal hopping one of the best selling street food after phuchka is Ghugni. Not only as a street food, on the auspicious day of Bijoya Doshomi (last day of durga pujo) Ghugni along with Nimki and Naru is served in every household of West Bengal. Ghugni is a yellow peas curry with few chunks of potato although many people add chopped fried coconut, that also tastes delicious. Ghugni is also served as an everyday breakfast along with bread or flatbread (ruti).

I made this Kosha Chingri Macher Kalia last weekend with some steamed rice and curry leaves tempered musur daal. He finished the lunch (read there wasn't any meat curry, not even leftover) with a big smile, that too on weekend. This spicy prawn curry worked like a magic. So, I had to share with you all the recipe of this Bengali delicacy - kosha chingrir kalia. Though the word 'kosha' suggests slow cooking which we are not gonna do with prawns otherwise they will come out rubbery, but also suggests a dry (oily) and spicy gravy and in this recipe we will go with the second variety. Hope you will find the recipe interesting with the detailed video.
