✝️✝️Dhokar Dalna (lentil cake curry )

Another quintessential Bengali dish

Dhoka’r dalna is a typical Bengali vegetarian (without onion and garlic) delicacy. The word ‘dhoka’ means ‘betrayal’, or deception, so this dish is common on days when families eat a vegetarian fare, and trick themselves into believing the lentil cake, made flavourful with spices,., is actually meat! 🤷🏽 It is a rather typical Bengali treat, cooked for guests and special occasions.

Soaked Bengal gram is ground coarsely with spices, dry roasted into a paste, then cut into diamonds and fried. This is the dhoka. It can also be had on its own as a snack with tea. Next, a dalna (a type of rich gingery sauce) is made and the dhoka is cooked in it briefly, before being served as a side dish with rice !! It’s a long recipe please dm me if you want to make it !

Pardon my sloppy presentation everyone was hungry so no time for fancy presentation 😒
