Prawn curry a la moutarde

I generally buy my fish and sea food from the morning market but this time around it was different owing to the irresistible fresh prawns that were available at the supermarket this time around. The pink delicacies were perfect and I took home 10 of them with me. Wondering about what to prepare with these delightful fresh prawns, I decided to fusion French and Indian styles, making sure the dish turns out to be perfect and delightful.

Teenkona Vegan Nimki : A simple Bengali snack.

In India, lazy evenings are generally spent with tea and munching on snacks such as the namkeen. In Bengal we call it the nimki, and it is mainly a pie like dough, folded and then deep fried. In fact such nimkis can be devoured by a Bengali at any time during the day. They are generally stored in jars and nibbled upon, every time someone happens to pass the jar. Crispy and delicious they truly are 24/7 type snacks.
