A Simple Sheet Kaler LUNCH

Let us talk about very simple food. Just imagine the critical kitchen scenario. I am talking about a day when your maid is absent. Your mixie is not working. You have piled up outside work. You have to go for dinner with you friends.

This trio is simple and easy to cook. Try this for lunch.
Plain Rice along with Spinach (palak) Ghanto and Shrimp (chingri) Bati-chochhori.

Here is the recipe.

Palong Shaker Ghanto


  • Spinach(Washed and cut into medium size)
  • Potato (Cut into small cubes)
  • Brinjal (Cut into small cubes)
  • Raddish (Mulee) (Cut into small cubes)
  • Coconut (grated) and fried and coaresly crushed Bori(made from lentil paste(Mator Dal)
  • Salt, Sugar and Turmeric Powder
  • Green Chillies
  • Bayleaf
  • Cummin seeds
  • Ghee and Mustard Oil
  • Wheat Flour (1tsp)

Heat oil and add Cummin seeds, a few green chillies and a bay leaf to carckle and add all the vegetables except the spinach.Saute for a few minutes and add the spinach, salt and turmeric powder.Close the lid and cook on a high flame (as you know that Spnach looses lots of water when boiled). Then Open the lid after 5 minutes and add sugar .When all the veggies get cooked sprinkle the wheat flour on top to ensure complete drying and add Ghee. Switch off the burner.

Spread it on a shallow serving dish and garnish with grated coconut and Bori.

Shrimp(chingri) Batichochhori

  • Shrimp ( marinated with salt and turmeric powder )
  • Potato (Cut into small pieces)
  • Capsicum (optional)
  • Onion (finely chopped)
  • Green chillies (slit)
  • Red Chilly Powder
  • Salt
  • Turmeric Powder
  • Mustard oil

Heat oil and fry the onion and potato for 5 minutes. Add the shrimp,salt and turmeric powder. Add water (not too much). Then cook till the potato is cooked. Add red chilly powder and quite a lot of green chillies. Finally add 2tsp Mustard oil on top.
Serve hot with rice.
