I am sharing here today  my grandmothers recipe,a very traditional recipe known only to some people in some parts of Bengal.I remember this was made by my grandmother whenever I visited her because I loved this so much.Later when I grew up, I learnt to make this from my mother.
This recipe does have some constraints ,as the two important ingredients are not available easily,but to those they are available will find it an extremely easy dish to prepare
