Aloo Posto with Bengali Flatbread- Luchi

Today I post Aloo Posto with Flat bread Luchi; both are the part of Bengali Cuisine Platter. As per BM 22, I choose West Bengal theme sp prepare luchi with aloo posto. Under this recipe aloo posto is dried stir fry dish which prepared with deep fried potato and poppy seeds. On the other side, Luchi is Bengali Flat bread just like puri in North side.
In Bengali meal, I prepared khichuri, lauki ka dalna, aloo posto with luchi and baigan bajja. In a sweet side, prepare sondesh- A complete Bengali platter.
Hope my viewers like this whole Bengali thali. Please write us your feedback in comments.

  8. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done a awesome job with
    this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari.

    Exceptional Blog!
