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.
After cooking dinner yesterday, there were half a tub of greek yogurt and half a seedless English cucumber left, so I prepared this quick and easy salad. It is refreshing and cools the palate during an Indian meal.
½ seedless English cucumber, diced
1 small beet, peeled and finely grated
1 small onion, peeled and finely grated
4 oz. Greek yogurt
salt to taste
Whip yogurt with onion and salt.
Stir in beets and cucumber.
Transfer to serving dish and chill until ready to serve.
