Lau er shukto in the middle of a move

Lau er shukto

The last week before the move was particularly hectic. We were trying to get the new house clean and set up the kitchen before the movers came. Having parents who would spend time with the kids, and also have a delicious hot meal when one comes home tired and sweaty was a blessing.

It becomes even more special when when my mother made this lau-er shukto. Eating it with hot rice,  I had to ask her the recipe and note it down for the blog.

She said that typically this dish is made with shiuli leaves, which are bitter. Since we didn't have it, we substituted it with  karela or bitter melon.

The bori (lentil dumplings) in this are usually matar dal er bori and again, I substituted it with regular ones that were in the pantry.

It makes for the perfect first course.
