Mint n’ Chicken ( with a Bong twist)
The winter storms are becoming a rage here in this part of the globe, wind chills below zero have become a common phenomenon, yet in-between all these forces of nature the human psyche can find its own place of comfort in a well cooked home meal .Its amazing how your thoughts can take you in all directions when food is concerned on a cold wintery day, mine just landed on the East coast of India,the Bengali cuisine known for its subtle yet fiery flavors…wanting something green in my food( since Spring is still a few months away!) I decided to try this Minty chicken curry, the Bengali way.
Bengali’s( Bong’s as they are fondly called) are passionate about many things, be it Tagore’s poetry, football, movies yet you can be certain than any conversation starts and ends with food, such is their passion in creating wonderful flavors blending the spices in the pantry, so here I am creating one such recipe along the same lines.
