Weekend menu-1

Two weekends ago, I cooked up the kind of meal that makes my parents proud of a job well done. The kind that has a first course, a second course, and a third course like a proper Bengali meal should.

Traditional Bengali Menu – Exhibit 1

First course – Smoky sautéed spinach with sweet potato

Second course – Mung dal or split green gram infused with ginger, served with crispy aubergine/eggplant fritters

Third course – Home-style chicken curry

All courses are served with fluffy basmati rice, of course! The women in my husband’s family got to enjoy it. That time when I made this tea.

Recipes will follow shortly on this blog. Stay tuned!
