Peanut Sauce Prawn Noodles | Asian Rice Noodles in Peanut Butter Sauce

Asian Rice Noodles in Peanut Butter Sauce

Often I’m asked by the readers to share more comfort food recipes on the blog. Before we step into that section let me ask you all a simple thing, ‘What do you understand by comfort food?’ To me, comfort food is my soul food for which I need no preparation no recipe and of course no planning from previous night. It is something which I can make just right after stepping into the kitchen. Just like my newest favorite Peanut Sauce Prawn Noodles or you can call it as Asian Rice Noodles with Peanut Butter Sauce.

Pesta Sandesh with Butterscotch | Pistachio Butterscotch Fudge | Pista Sandesh

Pistachio Butterscotch Fudge Recipe

I'll be your dream
I'll be your wish I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope I'll be your love
Be everything that you need

You gotcha! This can be sort of a conversation between a Bengali (foodie by birth) and a sweet dish (remember, not just any dessert). Bengalis are ‘Truly Madly Deeply’ in love with their sweets (again, not any dessert). And the Pistachio Butterscotch Sandesh (Fudge) aka Pesta Sandesh is my latest Bengali trick, oops sweet to win my man’s heart through his stomach.

Product Review | BigBasket.com | Website Review

Ahh finally I’m back from my amazing vacation at Goa, India. Physically I came back around 6 days ago but it took me 6 long days to shake my head off the vacation mood and return to reality. This trip was a result of few minutes of planning; hence everything was decided on the road only. But it was a hell of a trip! After all, the combo of Sun, Beach and Sea can’t go wrong, right? Until and unless you are imprisoned, sigh! Hell, I’m getting carried away with the waves again! I’ll share stories from my trip later but for now back to reality check!
The real jeopardy of life just started when we reached back home around 9 pm with lighter mood and realized we hadn’t left anything to eat back here and the situation was a complete mess. We dint even have eggs or breads and it was a Sunday; so there were not a slightest chance of having any shop open for our essential supplies. Then I remembered of BigBasket.com, the online super market. Haven’t you heard of it yet? It is the one stop solution for your daily needs. As of now their service is available in mumbai, pune, bangalore and Hyderabad but I hope soon they will spread their wings in more cities. Have you ever thought that you could even shop groceries from an online portals? Now since we have one let’s get benefited from it.

Peas Kachori | Bengali Koraishutir Kochuri | Mutter or Matar Kachori

It has been almost 2.5 years since I’ve started blogging about food aka food blogging. The main motto behind this blog was to share recipes in a easy way for those who had never stepped into the kitchen before, just like me. Initially I shared mostly Indian recipes, specifically Bengali traditional recipes. But I couldn’t continue it for long as I don’t eat Bengali food on my daily life. I can’t afford to spend longer time in the kitchen with my hectic schedule. And very frankly speaking these Bengali dishes taste always best when they come out from mom’s kitchen. So I spared myself from criticizing my own cooking on each and every possible dish and just went on with other international cuisines which I actually enjoy very much on my own. Recently, right after Durga Puja I received few requests from readers to publish more Bengali Traditional dishes and sweets. So I’ve decided to share two Bengali recipes for you now, one savory and one dessert. For savory I’ve picked Bengali Koraishutir Kochuri or Peas Kachori and I’ll reveal the dessert on my next post.
