This is an almost lost recipe believed to have it’s origin in British Colonial kitchens. Dakbunglows are rest houses in British India built for travellers to take rest during their long journey. It is said that the care takers of those houses used to cook this dish for their guests. Dakbunglow style curry can be cooked with mutton as well as with chicken, the recipes are slightly different though. Since…

 

Biroin Bhat ar Kosha Khashir Mangsho (Sticky Rice & Dry Mutton Curry)

Posted on: September 13, 2018 Posted by: Deepsikha Comments: 0

This combination is quite nostalgic for me. As a child I grew up having this combination every year during “Poush Sankranti” (Bengali harvest festival celebrated every year in the month of January). Apart from this combination, dry mutton curry and sticky rice individually are very famous among Bengalis, specially Bengalis residing in the North Eastern part of India. In our house, mutton was kind of “weekend dish” and biroin was…

Dimer Devil / Egg Devil / Bengali Dimer Chop (Bengali Style Egg Croquettes)

Posted on: October 12, 2020 Posted by: Deepsikha Comments: 2

Well, this is not something I grew up eating. Also, this is not something that people were crazy about in the places where I spent my childhood. I hail from Assam and while there are hundreds of street food and snacks that are super popular there, Dimer Devil ( egg croquettes) is definitely not one of them. I was not even introduced to the name “Dimer Devil” until I moved…

We celebrated Eid ul-Adha last Saturday in India and this is the special dish for the occasion that my husband prepared. My Mr. Husband is a great cook and I sometimes genuinely feel that he too should have a recipe blog. This guy know quite a lot about cooking and the non vegetarian exotic dishes are his speciality. I don’t mind documenting his recipes on my blog. Anything good should…

 

Luchi (Bengali Deep Fried Puffy Bread)

Posted on: May 6, 2020 Posted by: Deepsikha Comments: 2

Luchi needs no introduction. We the Bengalis often love to call it Fulko Luchi as it is puffy and round in shape. If it is not puffy enough, it is not Luchi. As I am writing this and remembering what I had today for breakfast, my mouth is literally watering. Today morning it was Luchi-Cholar Dal and it will be Luchi-Mangsho tomorrow 😛 Bengalis love Luchi and it is their…

The great Gulzar Sahab said “In umr se lambi sadkon ko manzil pe pahunchte dekha nehi… Bas daurti phirti reheti hai, humne to theherte dekha nehi…” (these roads, long as ages, never saw them reach destination…they just run, never saw them halt for once) Probably Gulzar Sahab was talking about Indian Highways. These roads are magical – they never stop, they never sleep, they never rest. These never-ending and never-stopping…

Egg Dum Biriyani / Anda Dum Biriyani

There is hardly anyone who doesn’t love biriyani. Biriyani is a rice preparation originated in Indian subcontinents by Muslim royal families. This is typically prepared with meat, but, with times few more varieties have emerged and the most two popular forms other than meat is egg and vegetable. In India, Vegetable Biriyani and Egg Biriyani are no less popular than Chicken and Mutton Biriyani. For me, Vegetable Biriyani is not…
