Bandhakopir Ghonto ( Bengali Cabbage Curry )

Bandhakopir Ghonto 

Every weekend I keep hearing from my friends – the ones who still don’t have kids yet, about the exciting things they do. The pubs, the dances, the parties …. Somewhere I too feel bound to be out doing something helluva interesting and fun. Alas! I feel I’m always at a loss to quite know what it is.

I can’t find enough kid friendly things to do – probably which look as good as the pictures people post on Facebook.

And whatever interesting I do, I can never share the picture. Somehow I can never have her pose…and the moment I leave to click, she behaves like a cabbage. Running around in mysterious a circle.

Tai hobe tahle (Cabbage it is.)

The cabbage behavior is unruly. The cooked vegetable is not. It’s timid, mild and extremely yum and healthy.

Bandhakopir Ghonto 


½ of a whole big cabbage (makes around 21/2 cups shredded cabbage)
½ cup green peas
1 potato
tbsb oil
1 tsp ghee to top


½ tsp Turmeric powder
