For day 2 I have chosen our very own neighbor country to India which was originally a part of India decades ago. Yes its bangladesh..I don't have much knowledge about the country but its cuisine is much similar to our bengali cuisine. Right from Rhosogolla to Jilapi all the bengali sweets are also popular in this country. This country as for every country has a regional special dishes which divided by west,north and central.As for bengali even in bangla fish is play very important place in a meal. For today I had planned make a savory and a sweet dish from this country . As I told earlier in my post I love the panch poran in the sabzi so I decided to make a curry from Bangladesh and another sweet dish which was in my to do list for long .
Mostly vegetable dishes not much preferred in the country but this vegetable curry is very exotic as it is prepared with different combination of vegetables. Its an every day curry prepared in the country. While I was deciding for letter B I just remembered that My H was in dhaka before marriage and so discussed with him about the food there. He just replied that his cook there used to make the same vegetable curry daily with the panch poron and a yellow dal . He had no other choice but have the same dish every day. This is mainly bcoz there is a lot more variety of dishes made with fish there and poor my H had to survive with the food served as he didn't even know to boil water then more over he had hell a lot of work so didn't get a chance to explore around.
For the dessert I adapted the recipe from Loving Bangladesh Kitchen which I had bookmarked earlier to try. I was not happy with shape but still it tasted Like our very own malpua . H loved it a lot and I got a pat on my back for shaping them. Golap means Rose and this pitha is shaped in rose traditionally I don't know the reason Why but I guess it simply looks pretty and will attract any one to have them. You might have seen the varieties of Pitha I made for the Northeast states Thalis , Even in bangladesh there are varieties of pitha made for pujas. Ok now lets move on to both the recipes..
