Every family has their own breakfast story. In Bengali households, 'luchi' is the common one. Sunday mornings are meant for 'luchi - torkari'. I was never a breakfast loving person, still not.

Vegetarian Mutton Curry / Niramish Mangshor Jhol
Nonveg Recipe
Apr 18, 2016
The name sounds odd ? Well, I am not crazy, we call this mutton curry vegetarian because it has no onion and garlic. The food we usually offer to our god / godess is called 'bhog' which never contains onion and garlic. During 'kalipuja' or diwali, we Bengalis make this vegetarian mutton curry with the meat of 'pathaboli' (ritual). The taste of this curry is suprisingly delicious, even if there is ...

Fish ball Curry / Macher Kofta Curry

Cooking fried kofta / balls in a rich gravy is an old school Bengali delicacy.

Veg Recipe
Mar 30, 2016
I have not grown up too much of eating 'paneer' rather I grew up eating fish, chicken, rice, dal and vegetable dishes. I ate paneer in parties and very few times in restaurants.

So, after that day we both have become paneer lover and have tried several dishes. This ...

You always have a grand feeling whenever you prnounce the name 'mutton biriyani'. I mean really I need to describe this? It become the most popular indian dish among the world.
