It is this time of the year, that I again tend to get a sense of festivity. Much as I love Durga Puja, I have to confess I am generally partial to non-denominational festivals. I find them easier to share without any boundaries.
In Spring, my favorite festival therefore is Bengali New Year, which we Bengali celebrate along with finishing our taxes here in the US. It only makes sense right, books done let us go on a food and festive journey (Just kidding!)
This year I have pulled out one of my favorite festive recipes for Fragrant and Creamy Coconut Shrimp Curry or Chingri Malaikari and shared it with you on Smita Chandra’s Blog, Curry Twist.
She is also giving away a copy of my cookbook, The Bengali Five Spice Chronicles.
To win the cookbook, you have to do a few simple things, head on over to my page on facebook and like me (come on, I am likeable) and then leave a comment for Smita telling her what your favorite spice is.
Please stay tuned on this site as well, because in between shopping for new cleats and enjoying the wonderful fresh spring weather, I shall try to share a few interesting recipes for you to try through the rest of the year.
