About this recipe: This is definitely a bengali delicacy eaten usually for breakfast or as an evening snack. It is very tasty. In every bengali family, it is eaten at least once or twice during the winter season and may be once in summer on a very special occasion. Besides family, sometimes I make it for my non-bengali friends to show off my culinary skills in bengali cuisine. Try it, you'll love it.
