The Authentic Bengali Malpua

We shifted to our new house about twelve days back. This is my first post here since I managed to get the broadband connection yesterday only after much follow up. There are several other works piled up, setting up of a new house is so much trouble and labour. Carton full of clothes, books, other household items etc. are lying around but nothing can keep me off my passion, cooking and blogging for long.

Kolkatar Singara ~ Samosa Bong Style

The Bengali New Year or Poila Boishakh is just round the corner and this is a special recipe for the special occasion. Also it will complete one year of my blog. This is the first one in the series. ‘Kolkatar Singara’…. does this stir up any pleasant memory in your mind? Well, it does for me. A Bong at heart I can never erase these wonderful gastronomic experiences in Kolkata during my younger days there. Singara is a Bong name for samosas, a triangular Indian pastry with mainly savoury stuffing of spiced potatoes, peas etc., but the flavour is strictly Bengali. The stuffing, taste, texture everything is just out of the world, a class apart, incomparable with any samosas I have tasted after that.

Sattu (Toasted Bengal Gram Flour) Poori and Mughalsarai Station's Alu Subzi (Potato Curry)

India is a treasure cove of several lip smacking regional delicacies. Different regions have their own ingredients, style of cooking and delicacies. Those on an Indian culinary tour must not miss these rustic tastes or their gastronomic journey would be incomplete. One such food is Sattu Poori which is a jewel from Bihar. Sattu is toasted Bengal gram flour which is healthy, delicious and filling, a staple of Bihar, Jharkhand and Eastern Uttar Pradesh region. With this I served the famous Mughalsarai Platform’s Alu Subzi, a heavenly potato curry often served with pooris at the Mughalsarai station platform. Mughalsarai is a major junction in Eastern UP and the platform food is very popular among those frequently making train journeys through this station. This Alu Subzi is so simple and tasty, you will be amazed at the rustic flavour of this dish with such few ingredients. Both of these delicacies made an incredible matching and we had a dinner to remember. However you can savor this magical alu subzi with plain pooris or paranthas too.
