Bengali Cuisine is one of my most favorite cuisines because of its simplicity and deliciousness. It is a blend of sweet and spicy flavors. The delicate balance between the main ingredients and the seasoning plays a starring role. The spices mainly includes a combination of five spices – cumin, nigella, fenugreek, fennel and mustard seeds called Panch Phoran..
Also the oil used in this cuisine is mainly musturd oil, which adds great taste to all recipes.
My mother always used mustard oil in cooking dry curries and she even uses a lot of Panch phoran in many recipes. So I always find Bengali food familiar and tempting. My mother uses Panch phoran in making eggplants, Dahi wale Aloo and also capsicum curry. This Bengali potato curry is very similar to Dahi ke aloo , which is my mother’s favorite dish.
When I first tasted this Bengali potato curry at my sister- in law’s house, I loved it. My brother in law is a Bengali and he loves to cook. He taught me how to make Baigan Bhaja and Aloo Bhaja and how to enjoy them with rice. I learned this recipe form him and believe me this is such a simple recipe, yet very delicious one.This Sunday I made Bengali Brunch as my husband loves this food. I also made cholar dal and Luchi along with Aloor Dum.
