Sheekh Kebab Curry

A succulent, slightly spicy dish that comes together when sheekh kebabs and some veggies are simmered in a simple curry. Pair it with rice, roti or naan for a delicious meal. Frozen food, especially premade non-vegetarian food, has always been frowned upon in our household. The packets of readymade chicken tikkas and frozen mutton cutlets were only meant to be…

Piri Piri Chicken Curry

Kick up the spice levels with this tangy, flavourful chicken curry that pairs well with rice and breads. Us Bengalis LOVE our chicken curry and maangsho jhol. Lavish, made with utter devotion to details like painstakingly hand-crushed spices… these two dishes form the crux of meals that you linger over while catching up on all the gossip, reminiscing over memories…

Sesame Egg Noodles

Flipping through the photographs of past travels – a favourite pastime in 2020 – I found myself grinning at the memories created with my BFF during our 2019 trip to Sri Lanka. As I flipped through the photographs, I could almost hear our chatter in the background, like an audio cassette on the loop. A particular photograph had me bursting…

Coconut Prawn Dal

It’s creamy. It’s healthy. It’s quick. It’s yummy! What more can one ask for when it comes to a wholesome dal preparation! The coconut prawn dal is one of the easiest preparations I’ve tried in recent times. Inspired by the liberal use of coconut milk in cuisines from Goa and Kerala, the coconut prawn dal is one among the several…

Pabda Maacher Jhol | Indian Butterfish Curry

I’ve got to start with a random confession… or confessions. It took me a while to figure out what pabda maachis called in English and with it came the realization that despite having grown up with the privilege of speaking and understanding 4 languages, I am not very good at either. Maa helped me fry the fish because all that spluttering…

Narkel Malai Murg | Chicken in Coconut Milk

Think chicken with coconut milk and you’ll think the recipe I’m sharing today is inspired by cuisine in Kerala. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone told me that the original recipe travelled from the lush green landscape of Kerala to the homes tucked in the bylanes of Kolkata, cooked for the first time by an enterprising traveller who had returned…

Mangsho Ghughni | Mutton & Peas Curry

I’m still staggering under the number of sweets I’ve gorged on in the past few days. Diwali season was literally a ‘mithai season’ (sweets season) for me with sweets made at home, others’ homes and store-bought making their merry way into my system. I won’t insult your intelligence by insisting ‘I couldn’t say no’. Nope, I could have but I am a greedy…

Chicken Milanese & a chat with Chef Mauro Ferrari

After nearly a decade in journalism and having interviewed a decent number of people, I can safely say I have the ability to distinguish between people who speak to you for publicity and those who want to share more about their passion. Chef Mauro Ferrari is willing to do the former but it’s the latter that shines through his eyes…

Omelette Jhol | Omelette in a Spicy Curry

Temporary workspaces are so much fun! You move out of your personalised space and set up shop at a different location. A visit to the unknown rejuvenates the mood and makes your workspace dearer on return. I change my workspace often when back home. Pack up my little bag and head to a cafe, settle down with a new view…
