Dragon Shrimp with Steamed Rice---A Seafood Lover's Dream

This dish produces the most flavorful, juicy shrimp you have ever tasted.

Basa Fish Curry with Sim er Bichi

Seem or sim is a vegetable that is widely known in the Asias. They are a close relative of the snow peas. In fact, they look very much like snow peas but are just thicker, darker and longer. The flavor also is similar but instead of the sweetness that snow peas have, seem have a sharp yet mellow flavor. Sim er bichi can be bought at any bangali grocery store. If not available though, it can be substituted with lima beans and the taste wouldn't change drastically.

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Now most of you looking at this will say why does anyone need a recipe for grilled cheese? Any average Joe off the street can make grilled cheese! But the truth is, most people make grilles cheese with a sandwich maker or other kitchen gadget.

Vegetable Pakora---A Comfort Food to Brighten up the Gloomiest of Days

Everyone I know and can imagine has a part of them that screams for the tasty, unhealthy, trash that our bodies groan after recieving! No matter how health conscious, how self aware and motivated we are, we all give in to our deep fried food craving once in a while.

I mean...just look at that!

Doesn't that make you want to make a batch right now?(for those who know what pakoras are) or make you curious as to what they are and how they taste?(for those who have never heard of them).

Tandoori Chicken---Probably the Most Popular Indian Takeout Chicken

Tandoori chicken is traditionally made in a clay oven called a Tandoor. The flavour that issues from a tandoor is out of this world! I would highly recommend anyone to try it at an authentic indian restaurant that chars it in a Tandoor and uses their own secret recipe for the masala.

Chilli Shrimp

This dish is a twist on the classic version of chilli shrimp and has a mouth-watering edge to it that comes from the lemongrass.

Curried Liver---Liver Masala

Most curries are very similar. Every region has a base that is known to them. Something is added in addition to the bases (or removed) to create the distinct flavour of that particular dish. In indian cooking, there are different types of bases or masalas some with tomatoes, some without, some with curry leaves, some with whole spices or garam masala some with yogurt. Most Thai curries have a base of coconut milk etc. As for bengali dishes, the basic curry masala consists of onions, ginger, garlic, turmeric, chilli and (if its meat of any kind) cumin and coriander.
