It is time again to shake things up with some Shak-it-baby! The group of leafy vegetables which features so prominently in typical Bengali culinary heritage that one really can not stay away from them for too long. Not long ago, I shared with you the story of Pui Shak and how with some prawns and pumpkins, this super veg could turn things around in your kitchen. In this episode, we switch focus on another shaking member of the same family and that is the ubiquitous lal-shak or red spinach, also called as red amaranth.
Faith to each, festival to all and feast for your appetite! On the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, the largely celebrated Islamic festival marking the end of the fasting month, it is time to unleash your gourmand self. The dish that can very well be your flagship on the dining table can be the Murg Pulao which is an easy rice recipe made with chicken and aromatic spices.
