Phulkopir dalna is a quintessential Bengali recipe prepared repeatedly in most Bengali households every winter season and I can’t imagine my growing up days without a generous serving of this!
I am sure you already have had your fare share of aloo gobi and you must be little reluctant to go through another recipe of this flagship Indian curry! I mean, we all know how to make aloo gobi, right? I agree with you and am proud of you too! But before you leave, I would request you to hold on for few more seconds. You may take another peek at the pictures which may hold you back little more (aren’t they looking tempting?!). My recipe here today is not the regular aloo gobi; it is Bengali style phulkopir dalna which is a no-onion and no-garlic recipe of cauliflower, potato and peas curry and trust me you will love this!
Phulkopi is nothing but cauliflower in Bengali and appear very frequently in every household across India. I am sure every region has its own special preparation of cauliflower and I am eagerly waiting to try them all. Today I am bringing the special one from my region and it is the very popular phulkopir dalna. If you are a Bengali, you may be thinking what’s so special about good old phulkopir dalna – It is just another everyday curry! And you are absolutely correct!
