If you are like me and enjoy besan in sweets, then you will love Besan ladoo. What is even better is that they're very easy to make and keep well for many days. Not that they will last that long!
Kori Rotti is a Mangalorean speciality. Kori means chicken, and rottis, in this case, are not the traditional chapattis or rotis. They are a special kind of bread, which are made of rice paste and then dried, so quite hard and crispy and are made into sheets that are then broken into pieces. These rottis, when soaked by the chicken curry, absorb it and turn quite soft. A real taste and texture sensation!

Begun pora is an authentic preparation eaten in Bengal as part of everyday meal. It is healthy, tasty and simple. Whenever we had a busy day of shopping together as a family, mom would plan something like this as it was so convenient and less work after a hectic day.
