This blog is dedicated to Mum, my greatest mentor. It is a compilation of simple recipes - Bengali, Indian, Burmese and Continental, among others. All of these recipes have been tested in my kitchen. Most use everyday ingredients found at your local market, but some use specialty ingredients available at Asian and/or Indian markets. Comments are welcome and members are invited to send in any recipes they would like to share.
This dish is eaten for
breakfast all over India and is most commonly referred to as Sabudana
Khichdi or Tapioca cooked with Vegetables. It begins with large tapioca pearls
that are washed and then soaked in water overnight. A variety of vegetables and
herbs are chopped, diced, sliced and stir-fried along with the softened
tapioca pearls to arrive at this delicious and nutritious pilaf. Just before serving, the dish is garnished with a
twist of lime and roasted nuts to give it a tang and crunch.
