Regrann from @moreechikaa – Borar jhaal – a modest but flavourful vegetarian dish from Bengal. It involves a few steps but the result is soul satiating. We use Matar Daal (Yellow Split Peas), soaked overnight and made into a coarse paste, fried into little dumplings and then dunked into a light mustard gravy. A bowl of steamed rice and you're set for lunch. I didn't grow up eating this one at home but it's a staple at my in-laws' and MIL makes it finger licking good. The pungency of mustard is cut through by green chillies and blend well into the smooth lentil paste. Do try this if you want a taste of authentic Bengali veg food. #banglakhabar #eatchatdrink #foodporn #food #foodie #foodgram #foodblogger #bengalifood #bengalicuisine #vegetarian #bengaliveg #bangla #bengalisofinstagram #bengaliinbrussels #indianinbrussels #matardal #borarjhaal #matardalerbora #lentils #iphone6s #iphoneonly #iphonephotography #foodlover – #regrann
