Bengali Veg Indian Recipes | Bengali Food | Bengali Dishes | Bengali Cuisine. Bengali cuisine has some unique characteristics that set it apart from the rest of the country’s food styles. Hailing from Eastern India, Bengali food makes use of mustard oil and a mixture of five seeds and spices called the panch phoron to get a special flavour. There is no roasting or grinding to make the Bengali panch phoron masala. It is just a combination of five seeds namely cumin seeds, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, fennel seeds and nigella seeds which is always mixed and kept ready for tempering.

Panch poron is used in Bengali masoor dalPapaya Tarkari, shukto and poshto. While the whole spices are commonly used in East Indian cooking, a roasted powder made with these spices is also used in making chutney. We present you over 200 Bengali Veg Recipes.

Bengali Parota and Luchi Recipes

Parota is a special type of Indian bread, which never fails to entice the diner with its special slightly-chewy mouth-feel and unique appearance that has a spiral or ringed surface.

While the traditional version is made of maida, here we have made it healthier by using whole wheat flour instead in the form of masala stuffed parota. This goes to show how a small tweak in the choice of ingredients can make a dish healthier.

Parota is a famous Bengali snack, which is usually made with maida. Here we have made it with whole wheat flour for a guilt free experience, and further fortified the dough with chawli leaves for a powerful shot of iron. Try the chawli leaves parota.

A Bengali favourite, Luchi is nothing but plain flour puris that taste great with Subzis / Curries . A dollop of ghee added to the dough makes the Luchi really crisp and flaky. These white and fluffy puris are a real delicacy, which will be loved by your whole family.

Bengali Snacks Recipes

Nimki is an all-time favourite Bengali jar snack, which has a very appetizing flavour and extremely interesting mouth-feel! Surprisingly, this snack requires only a few ingredients. Made of a plain flour dough flavoured elegantly with cumin and nigella seeds, the Nimki gets its unique texture from the way it is rolled and cut.

It feels very different when you bite into a Nimki and you are sure to be bowled over by the sheer variety that Indian cuisine offers – isn’t it truly amazing how the same ingredients can yield different kinds of snacks simply because they are rolled or cooked differently?
