Teekha murgir jhol,meetha aam sandesh,chatpata allo ,makhmali murgh and few handpainted tshirts

Have heard lots about murgir jhol or bengali style chicken curry,so when i got this recipe
source from here
while searching for bengali recipes,i didnt had any second thoughts,i thought if trying and i am so glad i tried,had with plain rice ,

intentionally i had added more water to the gravy to make the gravy thin,..otherwise always in my cooking i prefer thick gravy...gonna make this again for my sisters,..because just like me even they like spicy curry.

Plain paratha with aam(mango) sandesh and aloo bhona was the dinner which i had packed for hubbys tiffin when he was on night call,addition of panch phoran to the potatoes imparts nice aromatic flavour and to finish off there was sweet aam sandesh

,for the first time i experimented with mango pulp and cottage cheese together,..it was difficult to bind together but somehow i managed ,after preparing kept in freezer for 5 minutes so that shere.weet sets,..i have already blogged in detail with pics procedure to prepare sandesh,,in badami sandesh post,have followed the same procedure, aloo bhona recipe is taken from here

BENGALI STYLE CHICKEN REZALA-addition of wheat flour to this curry imparts distinct flavour to the curry,..,,,for the first time i had added wheat flour to any curry,,so was scared too,..but when i had with rice

,,,it was total yum,,,try and u wil know the differencegravy was soft like velvet so makhmali murgh :-) ,recipe is taken from here,,i followed the same recipe,..

Brought water to my mouth. How I miss good old Kolkata and the Food! I must check back on the site to see the feast of Bengali recipes there.

Swati said...

I had a question about the chicken rezala recipe that you posted a fantastic photo of: Do you steam the chicken, or do you add water to the dish and just give it a whistle in the pressure cooker?

I really want to make this dish, but I want to get it right, so my Rezala tastes and looks like yours.

Will be waiting for your reply.
