Here’s a quick and easy way to get your veggies in these cold months using seasonal produced. An Indian style vegetable stir fry, or bhaji, using butternut squash, red cabbage and spinach. It is cooked in just a little bit of oil with sliced onions and a little bit of garlic and flavoured with the famous Bengali 5 Spice. Panch Phoron, or Bengali 5 Spice is a whole spice blend of fenugreek seed, black sesame seeds, whole cumin, mustard seed and fennel seed. Serve with rice for a perfect vegan meal for Meatless Monday, on enjoy a bowl on its own for a no carb meal.
I really wish I was more of an organised person. I know a few people who are always super tidy and punctual and seem to always be ticking things off to-do lists. And I just look at them and think, how are you doing this?? I’m more of the type who is always running around to catch the train on time and looking for that thing you lost under that pile of stuff you keep meaning to sort out.
It occurred to me recently that almost three whole months into my food blogging career, I still don’t have a single fish curry on here. Due to the geographical location of Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal, freshwater fish is very commonly consumed, sometimes more than meat or chicken. This is something that has been exported with the Bangladeshi diaspora in the UK and beyond.
