SHHHH COOKING SECRETLY CHALLENGE
Challenge for this month in Shhh Secretly cooking challenge FB group is Bengali cuisine. Bengali cuisine is known for its varied use of flavours, as well as the spread of its confectioneries and desserts. West Bengal is known as the land of maach (fish) and bhaat (rice). I am always in love with Bengali sweets. There was lot of options to choose unlike other cuisines. I would love to visit West Bengal sometime and explore the wide range of street food and desserts.
My partner for this month was very talented blogger Aruna who blogs Vasusvegkitchen. Aruna is also like me who started blogging recently. She is so friendly, humble and like to explore and learn. Her blog contains lot of authentic and traditional south Indian vegetarian recipes. Do check her space for some amazing recipes. We discussed a lot and I gave her peanuts and bread crumbs as secret ingredients and she made the mouthwatering and delicious Veg chop. She gave me star anise and green chilli as secret ingredient and I made this dum aloo in bengali style.
