Goalondo Steamer Chicken Curry

#Pujo Special 1- Goalondo Steamer Chicken Curry

Durga Puja is round the corner. Amidst this festivity, to escalate the celebrations, here’s an outstanding chicken dish to delight your family for Saptami lunch. Goalondo Steamer Chicken Curry has created a sensation in the Bong culinary world. An unbelievably easy dish needing only coarsely chopped basic spices and mustard oil, but scores with its amazingly simple rustic flavor. This dish is quintessentially Bangladeshi as it originated from the Muslim boatmen who used to row the mighty Padma overnight to take the passengers from Goalondo, a small town in Bangladesh and a major transportation hub to travel in the eastern parts of Bengal and Assam, to Narayanganj. Passengers had no other options to travel to Dhaka except the waterways because there was no railway track from Goalondo. This chicken curry was cooked by the boatmen on the steamer with whatever the available basic spices yet the freshest ingredients, gradually became popular with the passengers also who in turn have taken the recipe to the world and made it famous. Try this dish to taste what the Bengali gastronomic world is raving about.
