Last December, AB and I were on a ten-day whirlwind trip to Kolkata. We were primarily there for some visa-related work but since we were home after three years, family, friends, and relatives didn’t stop short of smothering us with an abundance of homemade delicious meals – for breakfast, lunch, tea-time snacks, dinner, and the time that is between! With my camera in tow, I clicked as much as I could, secretly trying to capture the love with which all these were made. Advertisements
Easy three-ingredient Indian Rice Pudding – yes, that’s what ‘Paayesh’ really is.
Patishapta is the Bengali answer to a French Crepe. Unlike savory crepes, Patishapta is always sweet and is smaller in diameter. It has a sweetened coconut or a fudgy sweet cheese filling. So I can rightfully call this recipe ‘Crepes with Coconut and Jaggery’.
One of my personal favorites, this dish is not just special to me but to most Bengalis I know! A flavorful dish with shrimps (or prawns), cauliflower and potatoes! Comfort food, at it’s best.
