Banda Kopir Tarkari (Vegetables Stir Fried Wi Recipe
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/2 lb potatoes, 225 g. chopped in small c
1 each onion, finely chopped
1 each bay leaf
1/2 tsp cumin, ground
1/2 tsp ginger, ground
1/4 tsp chili powder
4 each tomatoes, chopped
1 cup cabbage, finely sliced
1/2 cup peas
1 oil salt
"In Bangladesh, cabbage is usually available in the market during the
winter season, as are tomatoes, peas and carrots. So this dish appears
quite frequently at Bengali dinner tables during the winter. In the
markets where such vegetables are available year round, banda is a
popular standard." Meghna Guharthakurta, Dhaka, Bangladesh
Start by heating the oil in a heavy pan and put in the tumeric and
some salt. Fry for a few seconds and then add the cubed potatoes,
turning frequently so that they turn yellow from the tumeric. Cook
them for 5-10 minutes (they will complete their cooking later) and
remove them from the oil and set aside. Adding more oil if necessary,
now saute the onion slices until they are soft and transparent. Then
add the bay leaf, cumin, ginger and chili powder. Stir well and put
in the tomatoes. When they have begun to break down, add the cabbage
bit by bit, stirring it in well so that it is sauteed in the spices.
Cover and cook gently for 3-5 minutes. Finally put in the peas and
semi-fried potatoes and seasoning.Mix well, replace the cover and
continue to cook for 5-10 minutes or until potatoes are ready.

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Frozen Fish Can Taste as Good as Fresh!
One of the problems with using frozen fish is that it often tastes bland and stale after it has been defrosted. This can be easily overcome by defrosting the fish in a bowl of milk, which brings back the 'nice' taste of fresh fish.
Blueberries, A Superfood that Tastes Great Too!
Blueberries are packed with phytoflavinoids and antioxidants - both extremely good for your health. They are also rich in vitamin C, something that most of us could do with 'getting a bit more of', and also quite high in potassium. Some expert nutritionalists claim that eating blueberries helps to reduce the risk of serious complaints like cancer and heart disease
