Bhoot Jolokia Pickle / Ghost Chilli Pickle

Bhoot jolokia/Bhut jolokia (ভোট জলকীয়া) or Ghost chilli is one of the hottest chilli on earth cultivated basically in Assam and some other parts of northeast India. The bhoot jolokias are two or three inches long and starts out green in colour.  It turns red only when ripened.  This ripened ghost chilli in the first bite gives an intense sweet chilli flavor.  The heat doesn't kick at the beginning. As you started chewing it, the heat kicks in and your mouth started burning together starts sweating and watery eyes.

Fish Egg Bhurji | Scrambled Fish Egg and Bamboo shoots

My blog has completed 3 years of its blogging journey this August, but the blog still needs to grow and I have still need to learn many things. This is the first post of the 4th year of my blogging journey and it is about a simple recipe of scrambled fish egg or fish egg bhurji .

Roselle leaves (Tenga mora / টেঙা মৰা ) contains many vitamins and minerals and high dietary fiber.
