I made the lobia curry with coconut milk this time. It was just a erratic decision since I had this can of coconut milk sitting in the kitchen counter for like ages...and it turned the curry completely different in taste. The coconut milk gave the curry a lovely beautiful creamy texture which I absolutely loved.

I wait all the year for this Bhoger Khichuri. Earlier Ma used to make this on Nabami...and now I make this during the Durga Puja. Bhoger Khichuri is nothing but a simple mish-mash of rice and dry roasted nutty aromatic yellow split lentils with a little sprinkle of turmeric powder and red chilli powder and finished off with our very own garam masala powder. And since we are by birth dedicated potato lovers...and had forgotten that this staple veggi is not at all native...dunk the khichri with nice and beautiful peeled, halved and fried starchy potatoes, cauliflowers and green peas as well. And as if...we are still not satisfied...we bring out the papad from the corner of the cupboard (as khichdi is the only time...we recall that there exist something like papad), then fry it knee deep oil or just place on flame to get some nice chars, and the chutney...pineapple or tomato, seriously anything will do...since a hint of sweetness can never do any harm and some sudh desi forever pure forever Bengali “Gawa Ghee” to drizzle on top of that yellow mess...oh....are you salivating now?? Then hop onto the recipe right away!!!

Even though I love the takeouts...making simple pizzas at home has its own satisfaction and taste. Making homemade pizzas may sound complicated but it is not. It might not turn out perfect in the first attempt...but after three or four attempts you will get hold of the method. Today I am sharing the forever classic margherita pizza with cherry tomatoes. It is just as simple as it sounds.
