Mete Chorchori - Liver curry in Bengali style Mete Chorchori - Liver Dish in Bengali style By , published by Prasadam: December 20, 2014During these winter days in dinner we tend to lean over to some hot oily food when the temperature hovers near about 10o C. A traditional dish "mete chorchori" [liver curry] is one of the best recipe for the busy weekdays when you do not want to spend much time in cooking nor buying junk meals. One try can fetch you to the kitchen every time, I bet.

Aloor Dum Bhog recipe for Shasthi Aloor Dum Bhog recipe for Shasthi By , published by Prasadam: September 28, 2014In spite of all the modernization of Bengali recipes there is a continuity of cooking traditional dishes on festival days following correct cooking procedures of traditional recipes which are marked as puja bhog satvik food. First the procedure is to choose the ingredients. We prefer no onion, garlic or meat. And secondly its to decide the gathering and offering, something for correct cultural fiesta. Even today when I was cooking all these recipes though not for puja bhog but I was following my mother's instructions that what she was recalling from the very far of her childhood and it gave the exact taste and aroma which was evident from the joy she expressed while eating. Today's recipe is for shasthi puja day. Bhuni khichuri with aloor dum and tomato amsatto chutney. We all were left speechless!!
