I had some Tortellini in the past few weeks. Its nicely shaped pasta stuffed with spinach and cheese.

Very easy to make as well with very few ingredients

Do they come pre-made with the meat stuffed in them? Or you have to start from scratch?

the ones I buy are ready made and just needs to be boiled and added to a sauce. I go for the stuffed with veggie ones and has spinach and cheese stuffing. Quite filling really these small things deceptively similar to sushi.

It's hard to make things from scratch unless it's a feast

Sate in Bali are exquisite.

Genuinely curious at the preparation of it.

Almost the same as kebabs...buts the skewers are stalks of lemongrass- adding another dimension to this simple looking appetizer.

I somehow see the similarity in the concept of this meal with one we have in Guyana. We simply call it 7-curry.

Oh yeah. Sounds like a nice place. Eating under a big tree.

In my village back home in the mandir compound, there is a huge tamarind tree. Whenever special occasions were observed, they used to cook large amounts of curries, rice, sweet meats under the tree.

There is a tradition on the first day of the Bengali New Year to welcome it by eating bhortas, with hilsha fish, onion and fermented rice. Not sure if same is done in Kolkata.

Also during a Bangladeshi baby shower apart from the Mother to be favourite dishes, bhortas are served.

My favt bhortas:
Potato
Shrimp
Egg Plant
Pumpkin (same taste as Butter Nut Squash).

Thank you for sharing this.

I like the three combos of potato curry, eggplant curry, and pumpkin, also bhaji, and the ubiquitous jacknut curry all served with rice and dhal.

And that mango achar.

It's our seven curry

I personally don't like egg plant in a curry as I dislike the texture and the color it makes of the curry. I like egg plant fried and the best thing to have with bhuna khichdi (rice dish made with haldi). It is a common traditional to yearn for this combo on a rainy day with egg or beef.

We don't have plain potato carry other than a dom or a bhaji. A potato is rather used in as an ingredient in curry dishes.

Bot tola.


There is another one "Niribili" in gazipur where you can get a bunch of bhorta items. And I heard its relatively hygienic environment.

I caught those Food Ranger posts on IG when he was in BD. He literally had a table of various bhortas. His reaction was gold!

One of my coworkers brought rice and chicken curry today. She's African American.

She said to me, '"Don't laugh, it's not spicy."

I was opened to trying it.

Just as I was about to plate the rice and curry, I noticed lima beans. Very odd to me. I then proceed to heat up the plate of food. First bite was obviously the lima bean. It blew me away. It's a bit salty, but it complemented the curry so well.

I'm trying to find a comparison for the bean and the closest thing I can find is the nut of the Jacknut fruit. The creaminess.

As expected, the curry wasn't spicy but I really enjoyed it.

Good food.
