As a child, knowingly or unknowingly, my love for the rich Bengali food culture grew stronger with each passing day.
This year, almost close to 50 guests have sampled this ice cream at my home, and the response was overwhelming.
I am happy to share this recipe today, as many of my friends and relatives who tasted this Bengali dessert at my home recently, have requested for the recipe.
And yes, adding Nolen gurer shondesh to this recipe is absolutely essential for its creaminess and well-rounded “comforting” flavour! These two versions of date-palm jaggery are only available in winters for a very short period of time, so if you are late in buying the same, the jaggery will be out of stock for sure!
(No worries, still you can taste this jaggery in myriad Bengali , you will know it for yourself, why these two kinds of jaggery are so prized.
Every season, every festival tickles our taste bud to enjoy some special food which is not available beyond the season, beyond the festival.
But battered by the breakneck pace of life we sometimes fail to taste it even if we earnestly aspire for it.
To fill up this void, AAMRIT brings to you a special segment where we would celebrate only seasonal and festival food.
As winter wows us with its various charm, what can be more cherishing than celebrating this season with our Bengali special- mouthwatering Karaishutir (Peas) Kachauri, Kashimiri Aloordom, Nolen Gurer Rosgolla, Nolen Gurer Pithe…..
I can still feel my wonderful childhood days in bits and pieces.
There are triggers that revive childhood memories: food being one of them.
My childhood winters were totally enriched with yummy homemade Bengali desserts, including the made during Sankranti.
