True to my roots

I cooked a true blue Bengali dish today. “Lau Chingri” or bottle gourd/ opo squash/ long melon with shrimps.

For those who grew up in a Bengali household, this dish wouldn’t be an uncommon name. However, I’m no pro at the proper stuff that my mother and grandmother create as if by magic. So I sorta patted myself on the back upon tasting the result. As for Mr.A, he had never heard of the combination but nevertheless enjoyed the ‘new’ flavors. I took help from this recipe, and made only minor changes here & there. Overall I pretty much followed the instructions.

Note to self: Ask Ma to prepare this the next time we meet.
