Narkel Naru | Nolen Gurer Narkol Naru | Coconut Laddu | Coconut Jaggery Truffles

Nolen Gurer Narkol Naru | Coconut Jaggery Truffles

Narkel Naru is just another name of childhood nostalgia to me; it has been there with me all those days of growing up. The only difference is the older I’m getting the lesser I’m dating this dark beauty; kind a sad thing to me though. On other hand the happy note is I’ve finally learnt how to make perfect dark sticky Gurer Narkel Naru, just like my granny and this is your treat today!

No Bake Skillet Cake | Peach Buttermilk Cake | Gas top Cake | Stove Top Cake

Peach Buttermilk Cake | Gas top Cake Recipe

Happy New Year folks! I’m back (after another short nap) with a magical recipe, No Bake Skillet Cake with Peach & Buttermilk without any Oven. Yes, you are reading it right it’s a cake without any oven. You must be thinking by now I’ll be suggesting you to use a pressure cooker for a steamed cake or sand.  But no my dear friends, I won’t suggest you anything painful or stressful. I always try to present a clean recipe and this time won’t be an exception! I’m talking about cooking the cake on gas top/stove top instead of baking it in oven. Interesting enough? Hope in.

Kulfi Sandesh | Ice cream Sandesh | Bhapa Sandesh | Kesar Pista Kulfi Malai Sondesh

Ice cream Sandesh Recipe | Bhapa Sandesh Recipe

Hello guys! I’m back again to give you all the ‘gyan’ (of course including a recipe) from my stock to convince every (even little) person on why you should celebrate each and every festival (be it Indian or foreign) with food and loads of food. And here comes the importance of a super foodie (like me) in your life with full-on eating agenda. Hang on! I said to eat a lot on festivals but I never said to eat junks or to spend an entire day in the kitchen! I don’t want you to get sick or look tired, at any cost. Hence I’m introducing another super simple yet scrumptious dessert to you; (drumroll begins) Kulfi Ice cream Sandesh, a Bengali style Ice cream Sandesh aka Kesar Pista Bhapa (steamed) Sandesh in microwave oven.
(And now the entire orchestra begins)

Bengali Nolen Gurer Mishti Doi in 10 mins | Instant Sweet Yogurt in Date Palm Jaggery

Bengali Nolen gur er Mishti Doi Recipe

Bengali Nolen Gur er Mishti Doi is a Bengali delicacy which is probably most widely used winter dessert, it can easily beat Rosogolla (rasgulla) during winter. The milk based dessert, Mishti Doi is nothing but fermented sweet yogurt. The core ingredients are milk, sugar and yogurt; some flavouring agents like green cardamom or saffron also can be used to enhance the richness and flavour. But can you guess what is the next best level of mishti doi? Ummm, it’s Nolen Gurer Mishti Doi! Even the name is enough to make me drool, all the time! It is also known as Jaggery/Molasses Yogurt. In this nolen gur er doi or jaggery yogurt date palm jaggery is used instead of regular sugar to sweeten the yogurt. When the strong smoky aroma of nolen gur (date palm jaggery) is combined with the tangy yogurt, it’s hard to ignore and pretend to continue your job. All I can do is loiter around the fridge with my greedy soul.

How to make Perfect Bengali Phulko Luchi | Loochi | Maida Poori | Luchi Alur Torkari

Bengali Maida Poori Recipe | Video Recipe

Soyon e, swapan e, jagoron e Bangali jibon er omogh sotyo Luchi Torkari, Robibar er jol-khabar!
~ The ultimate dream and truth in a Bengali’s life is luchi-torkari (poori-bhaji) on Sunday’s breakfast.

Luchi is the inseparable part of Bengali life; you can take out a Bengali from Bengal but you can never remove luchi from a Bengali’s life! We need this small dose of pleasure on breakfast, lunch or dinner with our favourite Alur Torkari or Cholar Dal and a bowlful of Bonde (Sweet Boondi). We can eat this maida poori all day long without any hesitations. If you are in doubts, all you need to do is send me an invitation! I’m always up with the ‘try me’ option! (Only for luchi, okay?) If you have no clue about what luchi is and might be thinking what’s all this fuss about, let me clear the air for you. Luchi or Loochi is a deep fried Indian yeast free flatbread which gets puffed up during frying. It is a breakfast staple in Bangladesh and few states of eastern zone of India like West Bengal, Orissa and Assam.
