Orange n Tutti-Fruity Muffin

As I have mentioned in my previous post (Eggless Choco-Chip Muffin) that I have baked some Orange n Tutti-Fruity Muffin, here is it. There was some orange juice stored in my refrigerator from last week. And I was thinking what could be cooked with this orange juice! So I experimented with two different types of recipes …. Tok-Jhal-Mishti Ilish (Sweet n Sour Hilsha) and this Orange n Tutti-Fruity Muffin. Both the recipes came out so well! These muffins were very moist and buttery and full of orange flavour. I baked with canned orange juice you can always try this recipe…

Eggless Choco-Chip Muffin

It was a tea party at my place some days back. I was in real hurry to make some snacks and some muffins for that occasion. I made some Eggless Choco-Chip Muffin and Orange and Tutti-Fruity Muffin. Both the muffins turned out very tasty and soft. I choose this chocolate muffin to be eggless and the other with egg. Amongst the invitees there were some kids too. They loved both the muffins and enjoyed having them. So here is my first recipe …

Dhaba Style Fried Egg Tadka (Whole Green Moong Bean with Egg)

I often cook ‘Tadka’ in many ways. Amongst all cuisine of India, probably Punjabi cuisine is the most popular and accepted by all. When ever we go to any restaurant or dhaba, we never forget a platter of some ‘Tadka’ or ‘Peeli Dal’ or ‘Kaali Dal’ or may be ‘Dal Fry’ ! You have now understood that I have a weakness for a ‘Dal/Tadka’. I already have shared some of the recipes of ‘Tadka’ like ‘Egg Tadka’ and ‘Chicken Tadka – Dhaba Style’. Today I’m sharing yet another recipe ‘Dhaba Style Fried Egg Tadka’. I have cooked this with ‘Gota…

Tok-Jhal-Mishti Ilish (Sweet n Sour Hilsha)

You all must be aware of ‘Anarosh Ilish’, where Ilish Mach or Hilsha Fish is been cooked with pineapple! Today I’ll be sharing a recipe of mine which is a fusion dish I prepared some days back… I named it as ‘Tok-Jhal-Mishti Ilish’. ‘Tok’ means sour, ‘Jhal’ means hot and ‘Mishti’ means sweet in Bengali. When these three tastes combined together, gave a very nice flavor to the dish. I had some canned fruit juices left in my refrigerator after making mock tail for last weekend get together and was thinking what could be prepared with these fruit juices! Then…

Hing dea Aloor Dum / Hingwale Dum Aloo (Bengali Style Potato Curry with Asafetida)

‘Hing dea Aloor Dum’ is very similar to ‘Niramish Aloor Dum’ only there is a difference in the proportion of spices in it. To get a better flavor and aroma I use the freshly roaster masala powder. You can always use packaged spice powder. I served this potato curry with some crispy fried flat bread or ‘Tekona Parota’. Hope you like this verson of ‘Aloor Dum’. Here goes the recipe.

Taler Luchi (Deep Fried Bengali Bread with Palm Fruit)

‘Luchi’ is delicious fried bread from Bengal. Traditionally, ‘Luchi’ is deep fried in ghee (clarified butter). Today I have made some ‘Taler Luchi’ n ‘Hing dea Aloor Dum’ along with ‘Taler Fuluri’ and ‘Tal Kheer’ on the occasion of Janmastami for offering to Lord Krishna. I have mentioned what is ‘Tal’ and how to extract the pulp from it. So let’s get straight to this recipe. ‘Luchi’ is one of the most loved all time breakfast options for Bengalies. ‘Taler Luchi’ though is a much known recipe but not very common in every homes like ‘Taler Fuluri’. It is as…

Taler Fuluri / Bora (Asian Palm Fruit Sweet Fritter)

Celebration of ‘Janmastami’ (Birthday of Lord Krishna) is incomplete without ‘Taler Fuluri’ or ‘Taler Bora’ (Asian Palm Fruit Sweet Fritter). These fritters are sweet in taste and unique as ‘Tal’ is available during this season only. Normally people make ‘Taler Fuluri’, ‘Taler Luchi’ and ‘Tal Kheer’ on the auspicious occasion of ‘Janmamtami’ to offer as ‘Bhog’ to Lord Krishna. Fresh ripe juices of ‘Tal’ when mixed with ‘gur’ (jiggery), cocoanut gives a beautiful mesmerizing aroma and flavours to the fritters. For making these fritters the most difficult part is extracting the juice from ‘Tal’. It is a little hard work…
