Lentils stuffed rice parcels Recipe:
Bengal gram stuffed in rice dough and steam-cooked to make what we call “Pittha” locally.
It’s yet another delicious and close to heart recipe from my mom’s kitchen. We call it “Pittha” at home and it has been one of my childhood favourites. This recipe is an exemplary example of a traditional cooking that strikes the modern taste buds spot on; well I say so because it involves the healthy steam cooking so no frying or no excess oil but just delicate, powerful flavours. So when mom offered to make some for me yesterday I instantly brightened up with a smile and my head shook in a nod on its own.
