Baati Chorchori

Once again, a traditional Bengali dish, bati chorchori can be cooked over low heat with any vegetable of your choice and a handful of shrimps.


  • Shrimp - 250 gms, cleaned
  • Potato - 1
  • Patol / Pointed Gourd - 3
  • Pumpkin - 1 slice
  • Brinjal - 1
  • Tomato - 1
  • Onion - 1
  • Coriander Leaves - 1 handful
  • Green Chilli - 3
  • Salt and Turmeric - as required
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Mustard oil - 3 tbsp.
 Chop all the vegetables into cubes and mix together.

Add salt, turmeric, shrimps and mustard oil to the chopped vegetables and put everything into a deep kadai.

Add 2 cups of water and put the kadai over heat. Cover it with a heavy lid and let it simmer over very low heat. Continue cooking for 15 minutes or till the vegetables are done. Vegetables should be a bit overcooked to make the mixture gravy like. Once vegetables are cook add the sugar and mix well.

Once it is done, sprinkle chopped coriander leaves and a spoonful of mustard oil. Keep covered for 10 more minutes before serving. Serve with plain rice or roti.
