For the past few days, it's been warm, sunny and no rain :) I bet everybody in this part of the world is wondering where's the winter gone ?

Coconut and Lemon Fish Stew

My parents can never even consider cooking with frozen fish. Bengali meals are all about fresh lake fish, brought from the fish market every other day. I grew up with that belief and tried to follow the ritual for quite some time. It was only during our stay in US when I started to embrace the idea of using frozen fish. And soon I realized how swiftly a wholesome meal could come together with a fillet of frozen fish. While these frozen fillets don’t live up to a typical Bengali style fish curry but it sure does make a light…

Fish And Orzo Coconut Soup

Soft white fish, chunky bites of vegetables with a handful of orzo, bathing in calmly spiced coconut broth. This simple one-pot fish and orzo coconut soup is hearty and makes a meal on it’s own. A little bit of globetrotting happened while creating this soup. The color of the broth comes from the famous south Indian spice Molagapodi (spicy gunpowder), there is pasta to make it filling and at the end, I sprinkled a little bit of sumac for that sharp tang.

Zesty Fish Curry with Coconut Milk

In the past week or so, I might have finished a whole bottle of cough syrup, sipped several cups of ginger tea and gulped many more glasses of homemade herbal drinks. This dry cough sucks! First, it was the jet lag and then, this dry cough; it’s been a while since I had a sound nap. The sore throat has changed my voice. Most importantly, I can hardly talk and that’s not an easy task for me.

Macher Jhol Aloo Begun Diye

A very light Bengali fish curry, that doesn’t call for onion or tomato. Just potato, eggplant and few mild spices is all it needs to prepare this Macher Jhol Aloo Begun Diye. Macher Jhol translates to fish curry, aloo means potato and Begun is eggplant. This simple light variety of Bengali fish curry is one of my absolute favorite. We also add dried lentil dumplings (daler bodi) which brings an earthy flavor to the dish. Paired with rice, it’s a great summertime meal.
