Bina Moshlar Mangsho / No Spice Chicken Curry

This recipe is one of my school friend’s favourite go to recipe. Without any spices this chicken curry is perfect for her children. Zero in spices but high in taste. She varies the recipe according to the time she gets after her work, for example, boneless chicken is for easy and quick cooking, yogurt is added if she likes the dish to be more full of gravy and on some days she adds a little turmeric powder and red chilli powder to give the recipe a little kick. She sent a picture of this curry in our whatsapp group and I immediately pounced on her for the recipe.

Quick Mini Apple Pies

Being a pathetic baker I find short cuts really handy. Such a short cut is these quick mini apple pies. Apple Pie with filo pastry right!!! Who knew?? With a crispy crust this quick apple pie is all what you need to meet your sudden sweet cravings. I mean...they are perfect!! I like them even more than the traditional pies. The traditional pie is richer and fuller...and perfect for formal occasions. But this little mini pies are perfect as appetizer and some go to friends' get together. Once you make them....I guarantee that you will go back to them more than you should.

Bengali Arhar Dal er Khichuri / Bengali Toor Dal Khichdi

Another gem from the cookbook of Prajnyasundari Devi. This book has a pretty large section dedicated towards Khichdi / khichuri only and there you will find all kinds of khichuri. From Malai Khichuri to bhuni to some odd names like Bakla Khichuri, Ogla Khichuri...and there is Til er Khichuri i.e. sesame seeds khichdi and so on. Going through those pages I found this recipe of Toor Dal khichdi or Arhar Dal er Khichuri and the best part is that it’s pure vegetarian.
