Rainy season is the best season to have khichdi for lunch. If it is served along with badhakopi ghonto then nothing can be better than that. If you are a Bengali then you will definitely admit that. But cabbage (badhakopi) is a winter vegetable, so you won’t get a fresh cabbage during the rainy season. Nowadays you can get cabbage in any time throughout the season but are not as delicious as winter cabbage because those are either grown in the off-season or stored in cold storage for months. But what else you will do if you are a cabbage lover? [Read more…] about Badhakopi ghonto, Bengali style niramish badhakopi tarkari

Kalmi shak (or kolmi saag)/water spinach is a popular leafy vegetable in West Bengal, not just in the Bengal but also it is very common leafy vegetable across the South East Asian countries. It spreads very rapidly in a wetland. If you do not take care then these plants can spread all over the pond. That is why it is considered a weed in many countries. But we Bengali people love this leafy vegetable and we can eat a lot of this kalmi shak stir fry, so it gets automatically controlled & can not spread, haha.

This is the vegetable what I did not buy from the market in this summer season. Then? What did I do? Yes, you got it correctly. I am growing this vegetable in my garden. It is so easy to grow. If you do not have a yard then also you can grow this vegetable in the container. You just need 6 pots/containers (10 inch size) and grow 2-3 plants in each pot/container. So if you have 4 members in the family then you just need approx 15 plants. So you can harvest okra/bhindi 3-4 times in a week and make various dishes along with most simple & delicious boiled okra (very simple Bengali style bhendi recipe, in fact, the most simple one).

Jackfruit is a miracle fruit because when it is unripe or young then people eat it as a vegetable. But when it is ripe then it is considered as fruit. Even after eating ripe jackfruit, its seeds are also used to make various traditional dishes. Though I love to eat roasted jackfruit seeds just like roasted peanuts. But its seeds are also used to make mouthwatering kathal bichi vorta (bhorta). Did you ever eat such kathal bichi bhorta? It is so delicious.

From the farmland to your dining table, the journey is quite long and it needs hard work & proper care. But for me, this journey is short and full of happiness because I am growing my own vegetable in the rooftop garden. It needs continuous effort and dedication.
