mom’s bengali comfort food

my version -- with lau chingri, asian long string beans, fried okra, yellow lentil and white rice...

"Lau Chingri is a quintessential Bengali dish, enjoyed quite often during summer days. “Lau" is bottle gourd and “Chingri” is shrimp and the combination works beautifully with very minimal spices. It’s a delicacy in bengali culture, a comfort food when paired with steamed white rice." -- Playful Cooking
