5 Veggie Dishes

It was really sad to see some of my friends being vegetarians reading my last post because i know it must be difficult for them to see non veg stuff let alone read about it. so this post is just for them.




1. for me palak paneer tops the list.. one should have it in winter because palak is nice and fresh then.. and they are simply yummy





2.shukto-this is a bengali dish which is made from posto and veggies and is a little bitter.

3.neem begun- neem leaves and brinjal, this is bitter too but then totally great.

4.baingan ka bharta-you need to roast the brinjal, add corriander and onnions with oil, and salt and makes for an amazing meal with roti.. not a bengali dish though but we have them too..







5.aloo dom-this is one of my favourite and dad loves the aloo dom i make.. it is really sumptuous if it is had with puri or luchi in bengali..

Before I say anything, you really have random hours to post your posts!! But this place all about being random, ain't it??

You left me so high and dry after yesterday's post, I was bugging my aunt to make a few Bong dishes for today!! But now you gave me actual stuff to try. Only 2 and 3 are yet to be tried. The rest I've been cooking for years now!! :D

Is this coincidence or is it just us?? Bhurta was for breakfast yesterday. (if you think I'm making it up, I can send you a pic of the left over Bhurta!! :P Tastes great though, why not?? Who made it??)

And are you kidding me with Rosogolla not on your list, that's the only other thing than Aloo Dum (Dom!! I love it when I hear someone say that!!) that was on my mind when I asked you for veggie dishes (maybe you should come up with 5 sweet dishes!! I heard you guys make really great ones!!)

See you when I see you... :)
