There’s a common saying that Rabindranath Tagore, chai/tea and adda intertwine inseparably with a Bong’s life. For every situation, every mood, every feeling, every weather Bongs need a delightful cup of tea and of course RabindraSangeet (Songs of Tagore) and I’m no exception to that. I just love tea be it anywhere, anytime and with anyone. So a request for a product review of my most loved beverage couldn’t be ignored.

Today I’m posting a dish which can be called the soul-food of
Bengal. 'Aloo Posto' or Potatoes in
Khuskhus/Poppy Seeds Paste is some thing with which I’m sure every Bong can
connect with. Whichever part of the world may a Bong live in, he/she is bound
to have a soft corner for ‘Aloo Posto’. A Bengali platter is never complete
without it. It’s one of the easiest and simplest of dishes that I know of but
the taste …can any vegetarian dish beat it in taste? It’s without onion and
garlic, requires the minimum of ingredients but those who haven’t tasted it must make it today to fall in love with the quintessentially Bong ‘Aloo Posto’.

This is one of the most delicious chicken recipes I have tasted so far. Innovation in the non vegetarian dishes has become a necessity now to meet my family expectations. I fail to figure out at times whether this is a positive or negative aspect of food blogging. Every time I rack my brain to come up with something new or google for some simple and new ideas which I have not experimented with as yet in my kitchen. This time I managed to dig up a recipe called Shorba-E-Tangri which seemed to be pretty interesting to me. Happy with myself to have saved my face, I started with going to the market to get hold of some fresh chicken leg pieces needed for the dish.
