Po­tol balchao, any­one?


Food has been cen­tral to writer Mini Ribeiro’s life, right from her child­hood in a Pun­jabi fam­ily, liv­ing among Ben­gali neigh­bours in Kolkata to learn­ing Goan cui­sine from her mother-in-law in Mum­bai. And her mem­o­ries and ex­pe­ri­ences with these di­verse cuisines from West Ben­gal and Goa have come to­gether as a book, Mag­i­cal Twists: East Meets West (No­tion Press). “Over the years, I have ex­per­i­mented with the two cuisines in my own way. All of that meta­mor­phosed in the shape of the book that has my twists to Ben­gali and Goan recipes, such as ka­sundi prawns ris­sois, po­tol balchao, pithe puli vonn, sitab­hog alle belle and dhokar caldin, apart from a few clas­sic dishes I love,” she said.
