Mixed Veggies with Prawns and more awards :-)

I don't know why I didn't post this recipe before, but this is one Quick and Healthy side dish which my mom prepares almost everyday for lunch. In this recipe ,you can add different veggies according to your choice and taste. Instead of prawns , my mom sometimes use Fish head of Rohu/Katla. There's one very special recipe made using cabbage and head of Rohu, which I may post very soon. 

mixed vegetable with prawn

Exclude the prawns if you like. This is one good recipe for vegetarians as well. 

One spice mix that is used in this recipe is Panch phoron (Bengali 5 spices ). I have mentioned about this spice mix in my earlier posts . As a recap, Panch phoron, also known as panch puran is a colorful blend of flavorful seeds - the green of fennel seed, black mustard and nigella seeds, golden fenugreek and buff-coloured cumin seeds. There are other variations like : substitute anise for the fennel seeds or wild mustard for cumin, radhuni seed for mustard, and possibly black cumin for nigella. If not available in market, add all the ingredients in equal proportion or according to your taste.

 There are lot such Bengali recipes which are very simple yet healthy and flavorful. I'll come up with more such Recipes down the line :-)
