Spicy Broken Rice / Khuder Bhat /বউ খুদি / খুদের ভাত / বউয়া

Spicy Broken Rice / Khuder Bhat /বউ খুদি / খুদের ভাত / বউয়া

  Spicy Broken Rice / Khuder Bhat /বউ খুদি / খুদের ভাত / বউয়া is typical Bengali delicacy. Khud(broken rice) is a grade of rice consisting of grains broken in the milling process. Bangladesh is the fourth-largest rice producer in the world. In the process of rice production it creates lots of broken rice (khud), so there are few recipes with khud ( broken rice) which is less expensive than rice. For that reason khud (broken rice) is more popular among poorer consumers. This typical recipe is specially served with Bhorta, dal chochchori, dim bhaja(egg omlet) etc. It is typically cooked in mustard oil but you can use any vegetable oil or mix match of mustard and other oil. Some add potato in it, so if you want to add potato, slice potato, fry with onion and rest of the process will be same. Now most important khud (broken rice) is not that available like other rice so if you don’t have khud (broken rice), soak any Aromatic rice (still

Homemade Pineapple Jam / আনারসের জ্যাম

Homemade Pineapple Jam / আনারসের জ্যাম

  As you know (or could guess), I am big fan of homemade cooking and I have hobby of gardening. So when I have grown huge pineapple in my garden, I thought to make some Jam for my Mum( Hopefully she will visit us soon) . I am adding pineapple flower photo for my readers.  I have used pinch of cinnamon powder which enhances the flavour and gives gorgeous colour, but it’s totally optional. Before start making jam , please keep in mind that jam sets better with tangy and ripe fruit (which has more pectin) than overripe sweet fruit. So overripe sweet fruit and overcooking are two enemy of jam setting. If you still want to use overripe fruit for sweetness, use half amount of overripe and half amount of ripe fruit. Or you can you use store bought jam setter. Personally I like to have chunky fruit piece in my jam, If you like smooth jam just blend the pineapple.   Ingredients 2 cup pineapple 1 and ¾
