Finally I've managed some time to write my new recipe. Last Friday I cooked a traditional dish called Shukto., after posting the pictures my followers keep asking about the recipe. So I'd to manage some time for it and to share my Grand mom's recipe with them.
Shukto is a traditional bengali dish, which is a part of a full course bengali meal. Shukto should be served at the beginning of the menu. It is a combination of sweet and bitter in taste. Different types of vegetables are used in this recipe. There is no hard and tough rules for Shukto recipe, In every Bengali household there are different types of Shukto recipe, some people add turmeric some people doesn't. This is a very special item of every Bengali occasions, like birthday, marriage etc. My Granny used to make Shukto is a different way. She never used to add turmeric, but she used to add coconut milk at the end instead of milk & maida. And that use to make Shukto different from any others'. Granny's Shukto had a unique taste. Perfect balance of sugar, salt & bitter. My dad use to say that, I prepare Shukto almost like my Granny. And he always like my Shukto more than my mom's made. The recipe which I'm going to share today, is typically our family heirloom recipe, which my grandmother used follow. So let's peek the recipe.
