Mung Dal Bhuna Khichuri

Mung Dal Bhuna Khichuri

Is a perfect comfort food but not as we know it. The Bangladeshi love this dish on a cold wet dreary day. Just  like we may enjoy something with mashed potatoes or maybe with cheese. It is a very simple dish to prepare. Yes there is a few spices to add but this should be part of your staple store-cupboard. This dish can be served along side other special dishes to celebrate the Bangladeshi New Year or as they call it  Poila Baisakh

Mung Dal Bhuna Khichuri

Made with chillies, garlic and ginger gives it an earthy flavour. The spices are turmeric, cumin, cloves and cinnamon. The surprise addition for me in Mung Dal Bhuna Khichuri is the addition of a bay leaf.
